I read the section "The Sacred Wound" (pp. 104 - 9) because the concept has so influenced the ecopsychology of Bill Plotkin (Soulcraft, Nature and the Human Soul). Houston seems to use a special psychological cipher, though it is not impenetrable and I made sense of this section without fully taking in her schematic of the psyche. I thoroughly appreciated her thoughts on betrayal and the role of wounding in coming to consciousness and into communion with a world much larger than one's own self.
