Trauma exists within a network of relationship. Our relationship to our bodies, each other as well as land or place. Hence the answer to the pain and suffering of trauma is not just individual healing it is also collective and in the of healing our relationships.
Unhealed trauma affects us all through the chain of relationships geographically and generationally. We can all play a part in the healing of trauma and in creating resilient peaceful communities.
On this page you will find a growing body of resources added as well as events, workshops, and courses. Trauma Informed classes and consultations are available through Heart Place.
We are excited to announce the commencement of regular TIC Meetings see below!

A Gentle Journey Back to Your Body & Back to Yourself with Mira Rao
"What is Trauma Informed Yoga and why is it important? Traumatic experiences can often leave us in bewilderment in relationship with our bodies. We might feel things that don't make sense or seem out of our control. We might be completely numb and shut down. We might feel intense sensations of fear or panic that don't fit the situation. When we have experienced an overwhelm of some kind in our emotions and bodies we can tend to feel disconnected stuck and powerless."
"Trauma Informed Yoga can help us reconnect to our bodies in a safe way, allowing us to get 'unstuck' and regain a sense of agency and self control."
Mira Rao is an Embodiment & Resilience Coach offering rotating 6 week terms at Heart Place in Trauma Informed Yoga.
