At a moment when the impacts of trauma are widespread, there’s an urgent need for mindfulness practitioners who can recognize trauma, respond effectively, and support trauma recovery. Mindfulness, Movement  & Breathwork Therapy

Mindfulness and Breathwork can be invaluable for trauma survivors. It can increase body awareness, one’s capacity for attention, and emotional regulation—all essential assets for trauma recovery.Mindfulness, Movement  & Breathwork Therapy

The skills you will learn over the 10 weeks together are intended to help you be able to better self-regulate, work effectively with your own trauma, and access the benefits of in an irregular mindfulness practice.

These skills can increase your ability to self-regulate and ultimately support your trauma recovery.

  • In week 2 we will explore the window of tolerance, a model founded in neuroscience which helps develop good practice for improving and maintaining mental health and wellbeing.
  • In week 3,  Dan will take you on a journey further into mindfulness & meditation. Mindfulness will help you to get in tune with your body’s cues, exploring how mindfulness can often be a double-edged sword:

    • Understanding why meditation can create dysregulation for people who’ve experienced trauma and specific ways you can prevent this.

  • In week 5 we will be continuing the work in mindful movement. Getting a little closer into the ever changing landscape of our bodies and recognising the healing effects of learning how to hold our attention in our body

 

  • In week 6 we turn our attention at understanding how to turn towards our values and away from our unhelpful habits. We will also explore thought traps and how we can begin to soften their attraction.
    • This week we will also re-expore the body scan, with a hint of compassion
    • Identifying symptoms of traumatic stress and tailor mindfulness practices in a trauma-sensitive way.

 

  • In week 7, this week is all about self-compassion, in a trauma sensitive way. We explore how self compassion can often stimulate more negativity and how to change that script.

 

  • In week 8 we explore the exhaustion funnel and return back to mindful movement. Through the exhaustion funnel we begin to understand how small changes to our world can make a significant impact to our wellbeing if not checked and managed appropriately.

 

  • In week 9 we will be exploring how we can build that trust back again with ourselves and how we can integrate this better in our world. With letting in the good practices along with some group compassion practices designed by trauma sensitive teachers like Pema Chodron and Vidyamala Burch

 

  • Week 10 – We recap on the course and discus how to take what we have learnt forward.

 

It’s never too late to take charge of your life again.
