"We all engage in this space; we all do it, whether we want to admit to it or not. We're hiding from other people, because we don't want to be shamed about it".

"Submission is giving yourself over to the process. It's believing that there's a way of being that doesn't have to stand in the face of-to contradict, to confront, but to allow and to give yourself… this permission to be happy, permission to be free of your problem, permission to really let go of all the things that are hindering".

"There's so many people out there really suffering and struggling, when what we're describing here is just to submit and to just to be a human being and to experience this trigger, this feeling, this urge, this desire, and know that it's within your power to just write it out because you're a human being".

"My teacher said get on the floor. Now get up. I just taught you the hardest thing that you'll ever have to do. Get up on your own. Get up on your own two feet. And when someone knocks you down, I'll be here but you still have to do the work".

"That is the explicit agreement that we have with each other. And when you fall, we get down there with you. And we wait ‘till you get up. Someone will be here when you pick yourself up. That helps a person feel safe like they can do anything".
