“…The more that we develop ourselves, that higher self is there to give itself away. It’s there for service. And this is when Empathy comes in. We first have to really get to know ourselves and take ourselves on, but having found my truth, I have to expand that truth to include others.” – Joan Sleigh, Executive Board Member of the General Anthroposophical Society-Goetheanum and SIF Project Leader (WSIF Japan 2018)
