Did you know about classes at Kinfolk Yoga in September?

Yogic Activism,
Trauma Informed Ayurveda, Attachment & Assessment and...
Why should you care? 

These images are slightly less challenging than showing pictures of victims of a mass shooting.  I couldn't take a picture of the before image: it was 2 circles next to each other, like breasts, and below was chopped with an ax to look like pubic hair, and it was clearly used for target practice.  It was so painful to me to see this that I had to transform it: with charcoal from an old fire, I made it into a butterfly, or an angel, whichever you prefer.  My message to the shooter, in case he ever returns to this place, in case it isn't clear is: STILL I RISE, STILL WE RISE, the message from One Billion Rising, which I helped organize in 2012 & '13.  This is why you should care. 
With every mass shooting, there are more people traumatized.
With every devastating natural disaster, more people traumatized.

Unresolved trauma underlies every societal malady, from disease to violence.

I almost died yesterday.  I wasn't sure whether to write about it so soon, but here I am.  We went sailing on our Catamaran that was gifted to us, for the second time, and it flipped.  My hair clip got caught on a rope that was just underwater enough to make me wonder if I was going to die.  I finally freed myself, thank God/ Goddess, whoever was helping me that day.  Joel wasn't worried at all, but he wasn't pinned underwater.  But I also thank goodness that I knew to let myself tremble and cry and discharge that heightened energy I was trying to free myself with, so I don't think I'll get the symptoms of PTSD.  I will still have to deal with my very sore neck, but I will say I hugged my children and hubby extra close last night.

So if trauma is carried in our DNA for Seven Generations, will this event be carried in my DNA?   A mouse was exposed to rose essential oil and simultaneously shocked.  The next seven generations somehow avoid rose essential oil. 

We know we are a nation founded on violence and oppression, now what are we going to do about it?

Get Trauma Informed!  Help your clients & students feel supported to stay in their bodies in your class.

I will be sharing the series of classes I'll be teaching live at Kinfolk Yoga in the next few weeks- before I start grad school!  Yes indeed , I decided I want to see eye-level with the people whom I know can benefit from this work, but who need to see Western creds.  I know a lot, a mind-boggling amount, really.  And I have learned to practice and live what I know.  I have grown, from rape victim and smoking alcoholic to a healthy, happy mother, yoga therapist and Ayurveda teacher and consultant.  But if I want to influence policy by  and educate current & future Mental Health professionals with all of my background, I need to just go get those creds.  

So if you are a yoga teacher interested in jumping onto the Trauma Informed Train- and get more than what any other training will give you- such as Ayurvedic Self Care, TI Chair, Active and Restorative Yoga, Foundational Neurobiology- Brain, Nervous & Endocrine Systems, Attachment and Guna Assessment, and Skills to bring these amazing practices to the people who need them most in the places they are-  you need to jump on board THIS train!
