Orientation For the Trauma Training
We will approach the themes from the perspective of the influences in our bonding patterns, from the ancestors, our ego, our relationships, the body and essence, soul and the divine.

• Ancestors – We will look at systemic & trans-generational patterns we inherit from our families and entanglements with past events, which may have major influences on our current relationships.
• Personality – We will explore our personal history, ego, developmental issues and personal traumas, that limit us in life.
• Relational and Interpersonal – We will explore our ways of being in the world, along with our entanglements in relation to self and others, parents, partners and life relationships.
• Somatic & Embodiment – We will include awareness of landing home in our bodies, self-regulation, nervous system activation, the body as the gateway to the informing field.
• Transpersonal – We will deepen our connection to our essence, our soul, and to the sacred.
