#Repost @janetheclapp (@get_repost) ・・・ FREE TIP FRIDAY - REFRAME RESILIENCE. (Be warned. Double negatives to follow) I know what it's like to feel like I'm just surviving each day. I've been there. I know how much fucking strength it takes to do that. The fact you haven't moved from surviving to thriving is no indication that you aren't resilient. The fact you might be feeling like you're keeping your head above water every moment, every day is not a sign you aren't resilient. The fact you keep taking care of the fundamental things you need to during cycles of dysregulation is proof you're resilient. The fact you feel like leaving this earth and choose not to every day is a sign of your resilience. The fact you still have the ability to connect with other humans and give a damn about the world despite your own struggles means you're resilient. Being resilient doesn’t show up as a tidy post traumatic growth package, whatever ‘post’ actually means. Being resilient doesn't look like rainbows and unicorns. Resilient can mean staying alive in the trenches. #reframeresilience #traumarecovery #ptsd #selfcare #resilience ・・・ . . . . . . . . . . . #traumaandco #trauma #complextrauma #connection #community #complexities #compassion #complexptsd #cptsd #traumainformed #mentalhealth #depression #anxiety #chronicillness #chronicpain #resiliancy #staying #stayingalive #surviving #survival #traumaresilience

Started the #summersolstice weekend with the blessing of chosen family, a magical summer rain and ritual, and a deep unearthing of the foundation that remains when everything at the surface crumbles away. Feeling open to both strength and vulnerability, to both planning and spontaneity, to both goals and surprises. Cultivating fortitude amidst the deep spiritual, cultural, social, and political crises we are swimming in at this moment is imperative and not easy. As I feel joy and excitement creeping back into the crevices of my spirit for the journey ahead, I’m holding the contradiction of the call to show up for our people where and when we can. I am exploring, experimenting, and practicing balance and boundaries. I know I’m not alone in that quandary and grateful to each of you that have shared with me your own trials and tribulations the past few weeks. I believe in me and I believe in us. Solstice blessings to you all 🙏🏽 . . . #yearofeternalspring #elcenote #coatlicue #verano #organize #movementbuilding #mentalhhealthawareness #traumaresilience #radicalwomenco #motherhoodrising #countryqueers #scenesfromsunday #freeourfutures #abolishice #nomoreprisons #slowhollertarot

Oftentimes, when I ask people “how do you feel?”, they will respond with a thought, but a feeling. Being able to describe what we feel is an integral part of making sense of our experiences in the world. Our experiences aren’t just mental, they’re also physical. But if we aren’t taught how to feel, how are we supposed to recognize our feelings, let alone label them? Luckily for us, there are lots of feeling words out there. @innerflow_wellness ((follow them!!))put together this lovely list of felt sense vocabulary. The ability to describe our felt sense, our somatic experience, is needed to develop interception, or the ability to understand our bodily cues. Your body will tell you everything you need to know. Sometimes our mind may lead us astray, but our bodies always knows our needs. So, how are you FEELING today? #feltsense #feelings #somatictherapy #howdoesthatmakeyoufeel #traumatherapy #traumaresilience #resilience #traumaqueen #traumaqueentherapy

Day 7 of the #7dayselfregulationchallenge challenge. What really gets me grounded (when I actually slow down enough to do it) is reading. For someone who can’t usually sit still and focus on one thing, falling into a good book was always a way for me to rest my body but keep my hyper mind active. And there is so much research on the benefits of reading. I think reading of any kind helps, but psychoeducation is so important to me-to see that you’re not alone, someone has felt what you felt. Or that the things you feel mean something. Maybe to even help you recognize how you feel. To say things in a way that you never thought before. To help you put things together and help you move forward in your growth. Knowledge is power. #regulate4resilience #psychoeducation #trauma #traumatherapy #traumaresilience #healing #smartissexy Even though this is the last day of the challenge, I challenge my bestie @flying_lione to tell us how she keeps herself regulated. And that’s just an extra bonus photo of my kitty at the end desperately wanting to hunt birds. He’s a sweet potato and a vicious predator wrapped into one little handsome package.

Trauma and other overwhelming experiences can leave us feeling isolated, worthless and without purpose. Often we get stuck in how bad we feel, and are unable to experience the good already happening. When we become curious about the experiences that feel good. We naturally move towards our resources. We find ways to support our authentic selves to grow, and we can live our purpose. Finding your purpose. #traumaresilience #findyourpurpose #healfromwithin #livinginrecovery

“A true vocation calls us out beyond ourselves; breaks our heart in the process and then humbles, simplifies and enlightens us about the hidden, core nature of the work that enticed us in the first place.” -David Whyte | Ruminating on the lifelong, windy, bumpy, tender and complex paths that lead folks to feel compelled to offer their healing gifts with the world. What details come together or come undone that catalyze us to choose the role of accompanying others in their healing journey as a vocation? To what degree is our own healing tethered to our work of supporting others, and what is the (often changing) impact of steeping in the realms of trauma healing? Although healing arts practitioners might share a field or discipline, what brings us to it and what keeps us here is very person specific - shaped by our historic and ongoing life experiences, identities and resources. Something powerful to contemplate with regularity is our why, our how, and, to honestly inquire, is this vocation still serving us? Is this current incarnation or shape of our work still serving others? Who is holding, or who can hold the space for you, to lean into these delicate and vital questions? #survivor #trauma #sexualviolence #healingarts #healthandwellness #nervoussystemhealth #traumainformed #traumaresilience #sustainability #selfcare #compassionfatigue #mission #vision #purpose #vocation #intention photo: @mollyboha

Looking forward to our first night of cultivating Trauma Resiliency. That ability to own your narrative and make it into your strength is what allows us to live our lives to the fullest.

This adventure was the best yet. I was alone. I creeped into everywhere I could. I walked on the rocks that the waterfall flowed over. I crawled under rocks and listened to the water flow. I took lots of pictures. It was a little scary but more adventurous. I’m still dissociated but I had a few tiny moments where things became just slightly clearer and I am just learning to be patient and grateful for those moments. I took more photos of myself in these places as well in hopes to sort of remind myself that I was there and this is what I look like. I seen deer and fell down an icey part of where I went off path. I cut my hand and scratched my leg but it was all for progress. I hope to feel things by summer. I know I shouldn’t give myself a due date but it’s a quiet subconscious goal. I know I am also fearful of feeling panic attacks again, or even the social anxiety part. I feel that creeping in as well. Also some anger comes up, too. I want to feel real again but those feelings terrify me. I have a client customer service based job and I do not want to lose it because of my fears. These are all baby steps for feeling safe in my own skin. Seemingly small to anyone else but such a big deal for me. Having the ‘ability’ to move whenever I have a slight urge to is so simple yet so freeing. Breaking out of the freeze response in a happy, wonderful childlike matter. “Nothing is trivial.” -Brandon Lee in The Crow #dissociation #traumaresilience #reclaimingmybody #resiliencybox #cptsd #socialanxiety #healing #recovery #naturetherapy #depersonalization

My brain is all up in a fuffle. Scattered and cannot concentrate well. Poor client, I was trying to book him in and I was just so confused. I made the whole situation just so much more complicated than it was. I know I get that way when I don’t go to the gym. I started running this past winter. Outside at first in the warmer weather days, then I started going to the gym. Slowly I worked my way to the machines and have been working out my whole body. Strengthening every part. There’s a sense of calm in your whole body after you “beat the crap out of yourself”. Its so refreshing and I have to remind myself that I am grateful to be in my body and feel this experience. I am not satisfied with the way it looks yet and prefer not to look at my self in the mirror. But I’m trying not to focus on my “imperfections” because I can get picky with myself and how I look. I’m too numb to feel discouraged but I can still feel those old thoughts creeping in. I still wear a thin sweater and am unable to wear a tank top or capris. I have a belief that there is something wrong with every part of my body and that it is extremely abnormal. I will have to get over that soon as summer is coming up. I’m not sure where my discomfort of being even slightly unclothed originated from. It’s something that I’ve felt since I was young and it got worse in my teen years. Especially after what happened with my ex. I was naked when it happened so I felt I couldn’t run from him. Plus, “it wasn’t that bad.” As we all tend to say. My curiosity still creeps up from time to time. But My focus isn’t there yet, my focus is on the now. If memories do come up when I have reached my resiliency window of tolerance then I will deal with it at that moment. But till then, I will do what is right for my body and mind and keep on this path of gratitude. Because positive feels so good and I don’t want to be anything but grateful. 🐁 #reclaimingmybody #resiliencybox #windowoftolerance #traumadiary #traumaresilience #dissociation #socialanxiety #cptsd #cptsdrecovery

Resiliency Day 3: On my way to my therapy appointment today thinking, not sure why I’m going.. I won’t have a whole lot to talk about.. But once I got there, I spoke of my experience at the hiking trail where I felt as if I was a parent to my inner child. She suggested we work in mindfulness with it. (Somatic Experiencing) I closed my eyes and held my hands together so that I can pinch my fingertips if I get too floaty. I settle in and nearly right away I was able to see my inner child self in yellow rubber boots, blue dunkaroos jacket and white blonde high pony tail. She was there stepping up and down on the picnic table like I was doing with my friend that day at my soul spot. Except it was sun raining and I had an “adventure stick” She didn’t notice me and she ran around looking in wonder at things surrounding her, crouching down at her level. Then she somewhat noticed my presence. She still didn’t look at me though. But she took me to my old house and she was squatted down in a puddle with a little stick playing in the water. I was right behind her just observing, squatted down at her level or just slightly above her. She would pick up the worms and put them in the grass, as if to save them from the ‘evil foots’ that could squash them. As we carried along through mindfulness, she stopped and looked up to the right where there was a few trees on the hill. As if to say “Let’s go there!” But she was always so quiet. We left that area and when she was in the tiny forest, it was like we combined the children’s kitchen set I had and my fantasy about running away and living in the forest. I remember I would think about that often. I would join the circus and live in the forest. I seen my inner child filling cups and pouring them out with imaginary water. The counter tops were wood and the tree branches were wrapped down to make walls. She was wearing my old school uniform now. Then I started to drift away slowly from her. My therapist suggested to say some sort of parting phrase to her to say goodbye. All I could say was “This was fun, I will be back.” 🐁 #traumadiary #trauma #resiliencyproject #traumaresilience #reclaimingmybody #dissociation #depersonalization

Will be offering yoga at this beautiful gathering in Wimberly. Via host @leia_blooms . . ・・・ Attune: (verb) to bring into harmony; to make responsive and aware This day of retreat & learning is offered as part of Gentle Strength’s Matriarchal Medicine series, an ongoing and always evolving series dedicated to sharing evidence based tools, ancestral wisdom, and magical practices to empower women in discovering their own unique paths to wellness. When women heal, they inevitably reach out to heal the world around them. Held in the embrace of ancient Cypress trees, we will gather on the banks of Cypress Creek in Wimberley for a day of wisdom, movement, and deep attunement- to our physical & subtle bodies, to the land and plants that support us always, and the energy- prana- that enlivens us all. Our practice will be dedicated to exploring our allies on the path of healing from trauma, which impacts us collectively as women- and, in many cases, personally. Trauma can appear in the form of a singular catastrophic or deeply stressful event, or slowly, over time, as daily stress, neglect, toxic relationships, financial hardship, chronic health conditions, etc...disorder our nervous systems and diminish our ability to cope. Megan McFarland @coyote.herbs & Brandi Jo Perkins @ritual_union_ will be in the seat of the teacher, offering the balm of their presence and the wisdom of their embodied knowledge. Brandi Jo will open our time together by bringing breath & bodies into attunement through Yoga. After a short break for refreshment, connection, and contemplation, Megan will offer her workshop: Grounding in with Herbs, Post-trauma.

Je me noie dans un océan immense...salé par mes larmes.Je les laisse sortir.L'ouragan vient m'engloutir...C'est injuste.C'est pas juste.Y'a pas de justice. (Je suis brave.Je suis brave.Je suis brave.). Je reste pleine d'espoir qu'un jour je passerai par dessus cette noirceur qui m'entoure et que ce vide intérieur s'estompera.Tu m'as violé et tu t'en sors avec rien comme conséquences.Et ça, Oh ça..j'ai pas de mots.Je goûte aux regrets; aux j'aurais dû, aux si j'avais su. C'est amer, ça fait mal. Ça goûte mauvais.Je peux encore les sentir.Tous les endroits où tu m'as touchée.Tous les mots que tu as dit.Mes peurs face à toi m'ont gardées silencieuse. Ma vulnérabilité était trop intense a révéler.Mais j'ai voulu te dire à quel point tu m'as blessée.J'ai essayé.Je veux encore te le dire.J'en ai besoin.Peu importe l'excuse,peu importe la raison: si je ne me suis pas sentie bien c'est parce que ça ne l'était pas.Ce n'était pas correct.Et laisses-moi te dire une chose:je reprends les morceaux que tu m'as pris.Mon intégrité,ma valeur,le pouvoir sur ma vie.J'ai gagné.Pas toi. La vérité reviendra toujours pour toi.Appelles ça le karma.Appelles ça la justice divine.Appelles ça comme tu veux.Ces squelettes dans ton placard ne resteront pas silencieux sur les choses monstrueuses que tu as faites.Et ça, c'est TA malédiction à porter,à supporter,à cacher.Toi aussi tu devras passer ta vie à être hanté par cette réalité là en arrière-plan..Peut-être, juste peut-être, un jour tu goûteras à l'amertume douteuse de tes propres remèdes et tu comprendras ce que ça veut dire.Peut-être que rendu là tu verras toute la destruction que tu as laissé sur ton passage.Ou peut-être que tu ne verras jamais le monstre qui te regarde quand tu fais face au miroir.Alors avant de pointer ton doigt accusateur dans ma direction, rappelles-toi ceci:je n'ai pas courru après,je n'ai pas demandé à vivre ça.Je n'ai pas envoyé de mauvais signals.Et je ne méritais pas que tu te forces sur moi.Je ne suis pas à blâmer. Ce qui est arrivé n'est pas de ma faute.Aucune victime n'est en faute. Jamais. Time's up:tu es l'unique responsable de tes actions.Et je ne resterai pas silencieuse quand il faudra te le rappeler

Regrann from @mollyboha - Come back. I heard this in my head during savasana/corpse pose yesterday. Come back. I was disappearing through stillness, into the terror of my past. New layers of my trauma have been dug up in my journey into motherhood - a postpartum shape that is familiar and foreign - and that 7 months later, remains raw. It feels so physically nourishing to move again and it also feels so emotionally tender - as it did after being raped. Come back. I heard the voice. “Whose voice is that?” I wondered. I was resting peacefully before the intrusive images arrived. Some part of me knew to call out to the other part of me that was time traveling. Come back. I repeated until words alone could not erase my view. I opened my eyes to draw myself into the here and now. I noticed the features of the ceiling, wood. I observed the sound of the room, silence. But the pull was strong. More senses! I made contact with my body. Hands on belly, to feel my breath. Hands on ribs, to feel how they hold me. Hands on heart, I am here. Wiggle my toes, more here. Come back. It’s been 15 years and I am still working with this wound. It’s been 18 years on my yoga mat and I’m still meeting my body - continually witnessing the way it has buried my pain and alternately wants to deliver it back to me so I can do what I need to do to get a little more free. I still rely on the tools I’ve learned for working with triggers and flashbacks. We are not necessarily ever done with these wounds. Even joyous experiences can stir whatever continues to linger in the archives of our tissues. Joy opens our heart and the opening doesn’t discriminate among what is held there. It simply reveals. I am privileged to have had time to hone practices to guide myself through dark moments, so I don’t have to run - from my body or the space I am in. Much of healing is learning the somatic language of you; what supports you, how your organism manifests the wounds, what it’s asking for next. Like any language, it takes patience and practice. We are translating the story of our body, one memory, one feeling at a time. Come back. I listened, I followed, I was gently returned home. #traumaresilience #som

Highlight “involuntary.” During healing, the brain is rewiring itself and trying to make sense of all that’s happened; it is an exhausting and scary process.

Day 81 Wild Crafting Womb and Vagina art for Me Too Reclamation and restoration Vulnerable Womb Vulnerability is not a weakness, a passing indisposition, or something we can arrange to do without, vulnerability is not a choice, vulnerability is the underlying, ever present and abiding undercurrent of our natural state. To run from vulnerability is to run from the essence of our nature, the attempt to be invulnerable is the vain attempt to become something we are not and most especially, to close off our understanding of the grief of others. More seriously, in refusing our vulnerability we refuse the help needed at every turn of our existence and immobilize the essential, tidal and conversational foundations of our identity. To have a temporary, isolated sense of power over all events and circumstances, is a lovely illusionary privilege and perhaps the prime and most beautifully constructed conceit of being human and especially of being youthfully human, but it is a privilege that must be surrendered with that same youth, with ill health, with accident, with the loss of loved ones who do not share our untouchable powers; powers eventually and most emphatically given up, as we approach our last breath. The only choice we have as we mature is how we inhabit our vulnerability, how we become larger and more courageous and more compassionate through our intimacy with disappearance, our choice is to inhabit vulnerability as generous citizens of loss, robustly and fully, or conversely, as misers and complainers, reluctant and fearful, always at the gates of existence, but never bravely and completely attempting to enter, never wanting to risk ourselves, never walking fully through the door. -David Whyte For womb healing, Conscious conception sessions, Family soul therapy, Shamanic womb healing email me teresa@lalupavia.com #womb #postpartum #queerfeministart #feministart #lalupavia #uterusart #wombhealing #womban #prenatalyoga #yoga #doula #doulatraining #pregnancyloss #sacredfeminine #traumaresilience #traumarecovery

How do we restore, integrate and alchemize trauma? How do we understand and shift the addiction of intellectualizing emotions? How do we thrive in a culture that celebrates suppressing emotion? Some of the paths are: 🌸 to nurture ourselves by Gathering in conscious community, 🌀accessing sacred spaces of consent and ✨trauma informed movement practices. Sweating, shedding, integrating and reclaiming. I love weaving my passion and insights as a dancer, death Midwife, celebrant, Yogi and Shamanic ritualist into dance and movement offerings I share with community. Amongst my many hats I am a certified Journey Dance Guide and certified Celebrant with advanced facilitation skills to share grieving circles, dance journeys, somatic Shamanic ceremony and more. This beautiful moment captured a year ago in the jungles of Costa Rica with my crew of 16 lady wolves as I led them through a revolutionary 85hr Prenatal yoga teacher Training. We danced daily to keep our vessels clear, gain insights, integrate and revel in the beauty of our pack.

One of the greatest acts of kindness and respect we can take is to honour our own boundaries. At times we may need to hold them firm and choose to not engage with or let people be apart of our lives. There’s a lot of social pressure to maintain relationships especially if someone is ‘family’. Some common ideologies suggest that we should be able to accept and welcome in everyone. That if we were spiritual enough we could hold everyone in a place of love and accept them as apart of our life. I disagree. Especially if you feel like you have to ignore a part of yourself to be around them. It’s okay to not let some people be apart of our lives. Even family. Sometimes this is the bravest act of love and kindness. If you know someone that has chosen to no longer maintain relationships with family members please don’t pressure them to reconnect. Trust, honour, and respect their choice. #boundaries #selfcare #traumaresilience #innerflowcounselling #innerwisdom #movement #movementtherapy #anxiety #depression #trauma #traumatherapist #stress #yoga #yogicounsellor #mindbodywellness #counselling #psychology #nervoussystemregulation

“You can leave any function you need to, whenever you need to. You can say no. Not answer a question. Change the topic. Get up and sit somewhere else if and whenever you feel necessary. Go to a quiet room a text or call a friend. Or a hotline. If people get offended that you have boundaries it’s because they haven’t done that work themselves. Some folks will get mad that you have that kind of self-respect. They’ll wonder why they don’t. They may have had to tell themselves that it was okay that people violated them and therefore they get to do the same. Or allow the same. And any push back to that dynamic flips their world upside down. Or maybe they just don’t get it. Whatever the reason, your job is to honor yourself. Your needs. Your limits. Your yes. Your no. Yourself, always.” -Chani Nicholas @chaninicholas @thebreathenetwork #xmas #seasonsgreetings #boundaries #createspace #yourselfalways #chaniwisdom #survivor #healingisapractice #traumaresilience

Herbal Allies for Trauma Resiliency last night was such a grand time. This gal was all jitters and excitement, but y’all hung in there with me. We talked about the felt sense, cultivating safety & so many magical plant friends. Thank you to all the kind humans who listened and participated and were open. Thank you @firestormcoop for hosting & @natassia.rae for believing in me. We raised some cash for @hawthornherbcollective 💖—it will all go towards medicine making for folks who are experiencing crisis or adversity in our community. And thanks to my sweetest friend, @riflesforlegs who has never missed a workshop I’ve taught. 🕯 Feeling soft and so grateful this morning.

Love it when clients share bits of books they are reading with quotes that sum up the therapeutic process. #allpartsmatter #traumaresilience #traumaresolution

Neuroscience and neuropsychology research have shown that some memories, trauma, experiences are held in our brains and bodies in places that language cannot reach; that is to say, we cannot access them, process them, or heal from them by talking about them. But research has found that we *can* tap into them through embodied experience—by using and moving our bodies—by cultivating a union of body and mind, where dissociation might otherwise exist. Yoga has been shown to be particularly effective as a form of therapy—for treating things like trauma and PTSD. It can also help us to become more trauma-resilient. I find these kinds of things fascinating, and so exciting. A meditative, mindfulness practice like yoga has the ability to bring one into oneself and one’s experience in powerful, life-altering ways.

Day 15 Wild Crafting womb-uterus art for "Me Too" reclamation and restoration. Earth Womb. Mother Earth is all fecundity, destruction and creation. Every healthy thing that we eat grows from the dark earth. The earth needs tending, love and respect as do our wombs if we are to grow what sustains us. Corn in the earth based Andean Shamanism I practice and share represents our stories. We work hard to become aware of what we grow with our stories about ourselves, our bodies and lives. Are we growing corn (aka are our thoughts growing beauty, possibility and spaciousness for our humanness or do the stories we tend to perpetuate shame, disconnect and self loathing towards our bodies and cycles? Kale, ginger, corn and smoky quartz. For the "me too" stories, both spoken and unspoken, in me and collectively. I believe you. I support you in the integration, and restoration of the imprint. Pouring personal and collective "me too" imprinting, pains, recalmations into wild crafting art for 40 days as a meditation, communion and ritual with nature to restore and inform this reclamation revolution.

Day 14 Wild Crafting womb-uterus art for "Me Too" reclamation and restoration. This is Womb of the Sea. The ocean Womb I swim in is also the womb within me.. Vast, nurturing, wild, creating and destroying, reflecting and ravaging. When I practice availability and attune to the oceans rhythms I can surf with more ease and connect with more ease, safety and joy within her power and mystery . When I am not attuned I have struggled, flailed and almost drowned. For me it's the same as my body. when I attune I find ways to nurture more and suffer less, thrive within cycles instead of become prisoner to them. I swim n surf in the ocean locally and internationally all year round-with a thick wetsuit in the winter here just to be with her, held, rocked and humbled by her. Aqua marine, Peruvian blue opal and Malachite-chrysocolla with local and int'l shells. For the "me too" stories, both spoken and unspoken, in me and collectively. I believe you. I support you in the integration, and restoration of the imprint. Pouring personal and collective "me too" imprinting, pains, recalmations into wild crafting art for 40 days as a meditation, communion and ritual with nature to restore and inform this reclamation revolution.

Day 13 Wild Crafting womb-uterus art for "Me Too" reclamation and restoration This is the Restoring and Healing womb. We must move in with a fierce immediacy towards the tending and nourishing of our wombs and the Truth that the womb and heart are deeply connected and what happens to one guarantees the other is affected. Knowing restoration, nurturing, integration and reclamation is possible in the realm of personal and ancestral womb trauma is everything. Fluorite eggs, clear quartz, rose quartz, Old witches hair from Tofino, Green leaves gathered locally, white roses from Ecuador all call in the specific restoring and healing capacities within each one of us that we can awaken.

Friday nights are a special kind of tired amen? After a long and emotional week with work and family and workouts it can be a tough choice to get myself to the gym. But I have promised myself I won't give up on myself. I've promised myself I will take care of me. No matter what. I carve out time for self care. Because I won't be any good to others if I can't be there for myself. So here's to Friday nights alone in the gym! Also, can I tell you bout my girl Shannon J? She has walked with me through 9.5 months so far and a 50 lb weight loss. Her education and training are excellent and who she is as a person sets the bar even higher. Here's to gettin it these next couple months coach! @coastalstrengthpt #tenacity #grit #courage #passion #bringit #showup #coastalstrengthpt #bodybyshannonj #traumaresilience #presentoverperfect #passionandpresence #willingtodothework #traumarecovery #fitnessjourney #inittowin
