We are warriors. Trial work is a form of combat and hardship always accompanies battle.
Fear. Dread. Vulnerability.
We return to it because the practice is also incredibly exhilarating.

Rather than continue this cycle of pain and ineffectiveness, Iron Advocate invites us to learn to get out of our own way and be ruthlessly honest about the difficult emotions and circumstances we face.
