Landscapes: of the soul

‘I feel like that often: that the outer landscape is the reflection of the inner’ so wrote Etty Hillesum in 1942.  She discovered that being attentive to this dynamic helped her to deal with the emotional turmoil of her life as a Jew lived under Nazi rule, saving her from depression, helping her towards integration, and opening up to her the inner ground of her life, so that she could live from that which was ‘deepest and best in me’.

If there was a landscape to describe your soul just now, which would it be?  Please browse the images and spend some time with the one that speaks most deeply to you.  It might be useful to journal or draw your response…
