Embody it. Statement originally from Jon Kabat Zinn - info on JKZ below. That list we create of things that are important to us, are essentially our core values. Our core values inform our thoughts, words, actions and decisions, they are the guiding principles we live by - which ultimately determine the path (pathes) we may follow in life. When we are living, and embodying, a life that is closely aligned with our core values, we may: enable ourselves to feel a greater sense of fulfilment better faci

What Is Trauma?

Definitively, trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that may overwhelm an individual’s ability to cope. Trauma is not only a result of war, violence, abuse or serious physical injury. Trauma is subjective, and what may be trauma for one, may not be for another. It can depend on myriad contributing factors. For example, how many “protective” factors a person may or may not have in their life such as a safe home and supportive family, or genetic predispositions to mental health issues, or already existing intergenerational trauma. There are so many contributing factors. Now is the time, more than ever, to give/show unconditional, non judgemental and loving kindness
