Health is the ability to rebound from difficulty Stress says we will be unable to meet the challenges in front of us. When stress increases we launch a fight-or-flight reaction, and if that fails to protect us, we freeze or faint. The brain reverts to primal animal defenses. If these events are digested and released, we learn about our resilience and strength. If not, we enter the phase called trauma, until the resources are developed to deal with it.
Body awareness and healthy relationship are the tools that heal trauma As a psychosomatic practice Sweeping the Temple offers sensitivity to the process of the return from trauma. Using a body-based approach, the frozen postures of body memory are digested in small bits. Memories of traumatic events are avoided unless they are arising to be witnessed. Resilience is the guide, so we return again and again to feelings of strength, freedom and possibility.
