Normally, when I am away at Kripalu, I document the experience through, at least, brief daily blog posts. My most recent venture to Kripalu for the workshop on the neuroscience of trauma and the use of breath, movement, and relationship to treat trauma was a bit...triggering for someone like me, and thus, the lack of on-the-scene documentation.
Truth be told, it was a bit triggering for most of the people there, since people interested in helping with trauma have usually been through some sort.
Though triggering, I am happy to report that I had the internal resources to be witness to the triggers and then to deal with them appropriately and healthily. Phew!
But I am tired and in the middle of trying to put it all together in some meaningful way.
In the meantime, how do you do with known triggers? Are you able to work with them or do they still affect you too deeply to go into witness state? Do you notice what triggers do to your body and breath or do you numb yourself to the experience?
