Self Care and Community Impact

There is an overwhelming correlation between PTSD and illnesses like heart disease, obesity, autoimmune diseases and cancer. The likelihood of substance abuse , violence, depression, anxiety, self harm and suicide skyrockets for those living with trauma.

Imagine what the world would look like if each person had an opportunity to process their sorrow, their anger and their fear. Prisons would be less populated, drug use would diminish, family life would improve and communities would come together.

No one on Earth is outside the field of trauma. Whether you have experienced a trauma yourself, you are experiencing trans-generational trauma or you are a part of a community that is suffering, pain is not contained – it radiates out and we all feel its effects.

Each person has their own work to do and it is challenging work. One needs to work slowly and seek appropriate support.

During this training we encourage you take time to process what may arise during our studies. Here are some things to consider making time for:

• Talk Therapy
• Somatic Therapy
• Getting outside for walks in nature – our greatest healer.
• Taking time for self care activities like taking a warm bath, going for a massage, dancing, singing, painting, drawing or writing
• Moving your body in whatever way appeals to you
• Creating and enjoying nutritious and delicious meals
• Resting deeply with practices like restorative yoga
