Nick Mulvey on Self Knowledge, Songwriting and Ceremony - E63
“Deeper self knowledge, true potential of the human, self realisation, happiness, suffering... it doesn’t belong in narrow places any more - in monasteries - it needs to be in the hospitals. Now is the time for it to be in the schools, in our lives. I really believe that.” ~ Nick Mulvey
