I realized that the stories we consciously and unconsciously tell ourselves impact the way we think and feel and act. Consequently, I feel it's important to spend time reflecting on our lives and our stories so we can make conscious decisions for change that can help us live with a greater sense of meaning and purpose.(less)

Quotes by Carl Greer  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Scientists and shamans alike know that all of life is woven into a web of infinite connections, contributing to the larger whole in a system that is complex beyond our imagining. When we sit quietly at the edge of a lake, or hike through a wildflower-strewn meadow, or walk through a cool, dark forest, we quickly become aware of our unity with the natural world. We fall back into natural rhythms--rhythms we are no longer in synch with as a result of living by the clock and spending much of our time in man-made spaces lit by electricity. Nature has a way of recalibrating us and helping us gain a new perspective on our stressors so that they seem less overwhelming.”
Carl Greer, Change the Story of Your Health: Using Shamanic and Jungian Techniques for Healing

“To transform our lives, we need to change our stories.”
Carl Greer, Change Your Story, Change Your Life: Using Shamanic and Jungian Tools to Achieve Personal Transformation

“There is a possibly apocryphal story that in Southeast Asia, people catch monkeys by placing a banana in a box with a hole in the bottom and hanging the box from a tree. The monkey reaches in and grabs the banana but is unable to withdraw its hand. The clenched fist holding the banana is too big to fit through the hole. To escape, all the monkey has to do is release the banana. Sometimes, the monkeys hold on for a long time and are then captured. People, too, often give up their freedom by holding on to things too long.”
