Remembering Trauma

Remembering Trauma, Neglect & Oppression until they are addressed

Trauma, Neglect and Oppression can remain frozen in us until we remember how we responded to them and remember the process of the trauma.

“Many efforts to overcome trauma risk the real danger that we repeat the same pattern of oppression that we wanted to stop.”
Remembering is acting out and story telling (ritual and narrative)
Personal presentation of ourselves and visioning who we wish to become and how we wish to transcend our current situation

Through personal encounter we change in behaviours
and transcend our former way to become ourself in a new communion

Facilitation provided by –
