At least half of us have experienced trauma, more commonly known as abuse, bullying or PTSD.


We often avoid using the word trauma by labeling abusers as controlling, manipulative, angry or cold. Somehow these terms make the abusers actions acceptable. They are not. Whether abuse is emotional, psychological, physical, sexual or financial, it causes deep wounds. The most harmful wounds are emotional. When the trauma is occurring, most people are not able to process what’s happening. They’re just trying to survive. The emotions have to go somewhere so they go deep into the body where they may hide for years causing physical, mental and emotional problems. The person disconnects from their body in order to not feel the pain. We all do this to some extent, like when someone says something cruel to us. To heal, we must reconnect with our bodies, which takes time and patience. Please join us Thursday to learn how you can reclaim your body, access its wisdom and heal from trauma.
