Thank you for visiting my blog, a healing site created for people who are practicing yoga many of whom come–and stay–as a way to heal from a range of traumas–sexual abuse, the terrors of war, illness, loss of loved ones, disaster, incarceration, racism, addictions. While more than twenty million people in the US alone are practicing yoga and way more than that have faced trauma, there is actually very little that has been written yet by survivors who see yoga as a key tool for healing.
So welcome, everybody. The entries—that I am hoping make you laugh, think, feel—are my attempt to create a link among trauma survivors, a place to share about our struggles and accomplishments. I write as a yoga teacher, a scholar who has been working on trauma for a long time, and a trauma survivor myself, hungry to find connection, community in our journeys toward wholeness.
Let me know what you think, what you feel. Namaste. Blessed be. Peace and justice for all.
