This class is for anyone who has experienced trauma. We will use a mind-body approach that draws on imagery, guided meditation, movement and positive cognitive psychology to help people experiencing trauma to take the necessary steps to safely reach a state of relaxed, focused awareness so that the body's nervous system is more receptive to change and so that old wounds (physical and emotional) can heal more readily.
