Key Quotes:

“You can’t heal a body that you hate. And so if you’re berating yourself because you haven’t got better fast enough…all of that is going to be the same as someone chasing you at the spear to your nervous system.” (00:47:32)

“We forget that that’s what we’re made of. We’re all made of love. We all come into the world, just little amazing bundles of love.” (00:51:16)
