Trauma-Informed: The Relationship Between Trauma and the Mind
September 1 - September 15
In this module, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of how trauma affects the brain and autonomic nervous system, and the implications trauma has on our daily behavior, ability to concentrate, and our personal sense of safety. You’ll get to understand the three central brain regions and how they correlate to trauma, and also explore the concepts of addiction and shame. You’ll also gain a greater understanding of how trauma is defined through both Yogic and Buddhist frameworks, and explore the timeless practice of mindfulness as a way to work with post-traumatic stress. This module is mostly theory and discussion with some periods of seated meditation practice.
