Buddhist Supports to Assist Release of Trauma

The Buddhist tradition offers many tools and perspectives that can help you to release trauma. The focus will be developing skills that will augment other supports you have to release trauma. We will focus on the following:

  • Establishing refuge
  • Establishing integrity as container for meditation and daily life
  • Making good use of supportive community
  • Appropriate focus
  • Generating loving kindness for yourself
  • Relaxing your body
  • Finding perspective with big mind and pervasive awareness/love

We will practice wise use of Buddhist teachings in relationship to trauma. For example, it is common to be asked to sustain attention on unpleasant sensations and to sit still for long periods of time. This approach maybe activating if you are dealing with trauma. We will explore supports found in traditional Buddhist teachings that will bring confidence, ease and well being and offer discernment in addressing body and mind activation. As activation is universal, this day long retreat has applications appropriate for everyone.

The Buddha taught that the the key to happiness is release. This release is experienced in the body, heart and mind. We know it when we are not driven by a relentless insistence that life in this moment be other than it is.

Cost: Registration fee plus Dana for the teacher and the teachings. Bring a lunch for yourself. Kindly come fragrance free out of compassion for those with chemical sensitivities.
