Each of us often rubs shoulders with a porcupine, a difficult person we wish lived in Antarctica… We will explore the 2 hands that heal us: the right hand that sets boundaries so we can care for ourselves and find inner peace and the left hand that reaches out to create peace without becoming another prickly porcupine that blames or tries to fix another.
