Healing Your Trauma with the Living Inquiries
A powerful workshop retreat with Lynn Fraser and Fiona Murphy
at the Krishnamurti Center, Canada,
July 21 to 23, 2017
You can free yourself and heal from the residual effects of hurt and trauma.
Learn and understand how the events in our lives impact us on all levels – body, breath, energy and thought. Experiences of abuse, neglect and feeling unsafe trigger our fight/ flight/ freeze. This survival system activation generates a cascade of cortisol, adrenaline and other chemicals. Our Central Nervous System goes into a state of hyper-vigilance that can last for decades and we naturally seek ways to self-soothe and down-regulate our level of distress. Trauma and our survival instinct underlie addiction, compulsive and catastrophic thinking, anxiety and suffering.
Safety IS the treatment. In this experiential workshop we do practices to begin and deepen trust in yourself and nurture authentic kindness and compassion within. We cover the essentials of “how it works” so you understand your body, feelings, nervous system, shame, judgment and the essential role of social trust. You will strengthen your capacity to see through and release identification with experiences that commonly lead to core deficiency beliefs of unworthiness, unlovability – that feeling like there is something basically wrong with you. The Living Inquiries allow us to freeze-frame and look directly and safely at what is driving fear and anxiety. Associations of thought/memory Velcroed with energy are seen and released.
Yoga is a complementary practice for healing trauma. We breathe and inhabit our bodies. Mindfulness allows us to learn about our own mind and reactions. This workshop is based on the principles of healing our whole system with yoga, inquiry and meditation integrated with current medical science of trauma, recovery and resilience.

Friends With Your Mind, How To Stop Torturing Yourself With Your Thoughts
with Lynn Fraser
A 90 minute workshop on Sunday August 13th, 2017
Thought is a stimulus-response system. Most of us have suffered with intrusive, catastrophic thoughts when we are stressed. Past trauma is stored in our body as energy velcroed to thought.
Core deficiency beliefs of unworthiness may be triggered by people and events around us.
