Racial discrimination and the healing journey; By Laura McNeilly BSc, MA, RP of Whole Health Services
Trauma is the response of the bodymind to an overwhelmingly distressing event, whether that event is rooted in abuse, violence, sudden death, neglect, loss, or racism. In order to heal from trauma, we need to understand those response mechanisms and work with them within the context of the bodymind, where they occurred and live. This presentation will explore the neurobiology of trauma and some of the psychospiritual methods for recovery.
