According to the Webster’s dictionary, the definition of still includes: to quiet, to still one’s fears; to become motionless or silent. The concept of a still point in therapy is an important one. Although we often talk about the importance of movement to facilitate growth, there are times when stillness facilitates movement. It perhaps comes after having made a major decision, it may be necessary during grief or loss, perhaps it is sought when life’s frenetic pace catches up to us; regardless of it’s reason, the purpose of a still point is to reset, recharge, renew. When we give ourselves permission to seek quiet it will lead to peace; a still point is a valuable stepping stone in life’s journey.
