Mindfulness & Trauma Series

with Pawan Bareja

May 1, 8, 15, 22, 29  2014 


In this 5-class beginning level series, you will learn to recognize the traumatic responses in your body which can inhibit your daily life through stress and anxiety.  Using somatic (body-based) skills, you will learn to free up your energy so you feel more settled, grounded, and calm in your everyday life.

Working directly with your body, you can begin to heal the trauma by discharging the unresolved traumatic energy that gets bound in the nervous system in a variety of ways — as body constriction and emotional reactivity. With the tools offered in this class, your nervous system can begin to regain its innate capacity to self-regulate.

In this class you will learn to combine the mindfulness meditation practices with skills of Somatic Experiencing®, a trauma healing modality created by Dr. Peter Levine.
