Stuckness in Depression / Cynicism - Mindful Vow to keep Opening

     "When we're mindful, there should be surprises." Stephanie Morgan, psychologist & social worker
     She contrasts this to the state of stuckness / pseudocontrol people suffering from depression experience. Whether in a depressed pseudocontrol mode or an "armor of intellectual complacency", stuck is stuck. 
     The antidote would seem to be a commitment or vow to fearless ongoing process of opening to what is.
       “Meditation in psychotherapy.” Two-day continuing medical education course, by the Department of Psychiatry, Cambridge Health Alliance Physicians Organization, Boston Park Plaza Hotel, June 9-10, 2006.

     Parker J. Palmer writes, and Sarah MacDougall sings eloquently about living and thriving with depression.
