#82 Basic steps for healing trauma

#82 Basic steps for healing trauma

November 22, 2022

In this episode I talk about basic steps in healing trauma.

* Focusing on the place in the body you are drawn to
* Titrating: that is, touching only a small fraction of the trauma energy
* Making a slight movement when you are frozen
* Enabling resources
* Pendulation: going up and down between the area where it feels uncomfortable and the area where you feel comfortable and safe
* Integration (ensuring that the change can penetrate your whole body)

* Orientation: focusing on the environment where you are, being curious again, something that happens naturally when your nervous system is more stable again.
* Finally I read the words of the Eastern mystic Osho

In this episode I talk about the beauty of waiting

I share a text by the Eastern mystic Osho about waiting and also a text by him about the absurdity of waiting for 'Godot'.

I speak of the beauty of waiting for the beloved, waiting at a station or airport, waiting for the sunrise and sunset, waiting for the dying person's last breath and for the newborn to appear, the pregnant woman waiting for her child and waiting for ourselves.
