I was fortunate enough to recently view a video of Peter Levine-the brilliant creator of SE (Somatic Experiencing)-working with a young woman who had been raped. It was incredible. As you may recall, SE is a system created to help those recovering from trauma (please see earlier post.) Although it is very effective with all sorts of nervous system dysfunction, it is remarkable how restoring this balance deeply helps-heals-those who have been traumatized.
I am about to begin my intermediate year of SE training and am excited and a little anxious. I find myself needing to do grounding exercises(like the one written about in my last post.) I am also stepping up my breathing exercises(see my resource list) and getting my body ready for nine hour days of learning!
Let you know all about it next week.
