YOU ARE NOT ALONE--Embracing the process of healing from trauma is attuning to a new way of experiencing our own journey.
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm Eastern Time
Loving all we must do to heal and find joy in processing our feelings, reconnecting to our self, and reclaiming ourselves and our life after trauma are all transformational steps on the path of healing. Embracing the process of healing from trauma is attuning to a new way of experiencing our own journey, enabling love and balance in our life.
(You will need a registrant passcode.)
Be mindful of all the healing one has done so far in the process of "peeling away" the layers. Perceive these steps as positive and beneficial, rather than negative and disheartened. Keep the emphasis on the positive instead of on fear and the longevity of the process. Instead of "I have to do this to heal..." say "I am able to do this today to facilitate my own healing."
Embrace the process of healing to claim a new way forward, to experience your own progress and achieve a more loving and healthy balance in your life.

Let’s all drop the pretense that we are either normal, or abnormal…
We are all in the same support group: ordinary people who must deal with the struggles that come with being human. We all carry this heavy weight—a trauma, whether from childhood abuse, childhood adverse experiences (ACE's),domestic violence, gaslighting, bullying, emotional/ verbal abuse and manipulation, medical trauma, and injury. We all at the same time struggle to meet our basic human needs for connection, community, acceptance, and validation among ones who share our culture and language, or not, for authenticity–the capacity to feel what we feel and to be in touch with our bodies and to express what we feel when we need to.
Fundamentally, that is the ultimate trauma, the disconnection from ourselves…
In this webinar series we believe that in the presence of compassion, healing is possible. Only with compassion can we bear our pain. In the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying the author says, whatever you do don’t shut off your pain. Accept your pain and remain vulnerable. –Mai Nguyen, Panelist
