Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
Inspired by this quote from Marianne Williamson, the online magazine The Conscious Lawyer approached five lawyers active within the integrative law movement to ask them about how they have moved, or are moving, through their biggest personal challenges and fears on the journey towards a more sustainable integrative law practice. Integrative law is an emerging worldwide movement to create a legal system that grants dignity and voice to everyone in the legal system, crafting values-based, creative, sustainable, and holistic solutions that build and strengthen relationships. It is is an integration of the practices and methods of the adversarial system with newly emerging more humanistic and relational approaches to law. Examples of integrative law are Restorative Justice, Earth Law, Therapeutic Jurisprudence and Conscious Contracts.
