bodyNo matter how much we might neglect or mistreat it, our body calls us back — through its aches and pains and imbalances — to take real care of it, to integrate it with the rest of our being, to honor and love it, and to recognize it not as something that we are “in” but rather as an inherently sacred expression of who and what we truly are. —  Robert Augustus Masters

Waking up to our true natures requires a deep familiarity with our bodies. I write about my particular journey of becoming tuned in recently at Mad in America: Everything Matters: a Memoir From Before, During and After Psychiatric Drugs

Here are other posts that deal with body wisdom. Those of us with trauma histories especially can benefit by deeply acquainting ourselves with our bodies:

●  Yoga for Trauma Survivors

●  Trauma, Fixation and Reactivity – (Somatic Experience)

●  The body releases trauma and restores goodness

●  The healing journey revealed (trauma and transformation)

●  Trauma is often held in the body and experienced as chronic pain

●  Trauma release exercises (or tension release too) — the body speaks

●  ”When you put the psyche in motion it heals itself.” (embodiment)

●  Trauma, Brain and Relationship: Helping Children Heal

●  Trauma and the body: an audio with Will Hall and links to more info
