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!
The Trauma Informed Communities (TIC) program is part of our umbrella Caring Communities Program.

Our First Meet for 2024 was held Feb. 6th, was really interesting and great start for the year! Stay tune for a summary pdf of what we covered and resources on Moral Injury.
Moral Injury is not new however there is increasing interest and research of late with understanding of its impact on individuals & groups. Also recognition that Moral Injury impacts many persons and areas beyond veterans to journalists, first responders and extends to any situation where a person experiences “a deep soul wound that pierces a person’s identity, sense of morality, and relationship to society” (Silver-2011)
Syracuse Univerisity defines Moral injury as the “damage done to one’s conscience or moral compass when that person perpetrates, witnesses, or fails to prevent acts that transgress one’s own moral beliefs, values, or ethical codes of conduct.” Moral Injury can present as depression, shame, regret, grief, alienation, insomnia, anxiety…We will explore its relationship with trauma.

"As a clinician, yoga teacher, Doctor, nurse, teacher or human service worker we come across people who have suffered from chronic stress on a very regular basis. This training will give you the tools to support your clients to be able to use their bodies as a resource in an empowering way, and over time supporting the rewiring of the brain and fostering the ability to self regulate and self soothe. When we feel safe in our bodies we are better able to relate, learn and grow emotionally"
