Meditation for Healing
Donations: £5 suggested
These guided meditations are specifically designed for those who have experienced trauma or who are living with chronic pain or chronic illness.
At some point in our lives we have all lived through trying times: trauma is any experience that is overwhelming to us because we lack the outer and inner resources to deal with events as they happened. The difficult emotions and repetitive patterns in our lives are almost always rooted in adverse, often unspeakable, experiences that we’ve survived but have not yet fully processed. This occurs not only as a result of a shock, but can be the result of any chronic condition which is distressing both physically and emotionally. One of the long-lasting effects can be a disconnection with ourselves, from our essence.
These guided meditations cultivate a gentle and compassionate inner voice that can be used as a tool during times of pain or discomfort; when you are experiencing something challenging or when a present-moment experience triggers earlier trauma in your life. The meditations will help you find ways to work with strong emotions as a means of healing the discomfort, shame, fear and reactivity many of us live with.
Inviting connection with all the ‘parts’ of ourselves - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual – including with those parts that may have become disconnected as a result of trauma or illness, you will be gently guided to connect with your essential, whole ‘self’ that is more than any single aspect of your body or your mind.
The meditations will take different forms depending on who is taking part and what shows up.
While these meditations are focussed on healing trauma and chronic health conditions, they are also helpful to anyone seeking tools to:
•activate the immune system
•assist with self-care
•create an empathetic witness in a ‘safe’ space for self-soothing
•support personal transformation
