Uplifting and Healing Resources: New Contributions

From my summer sanctuary at Itasca State Park
I haven't added posts here for some time now but that doesn't mean I've forgotten the importance of community in my own growth or that of my fellow travelers.  My moment to moment and daily quest toward peace building through compassionate living grows richer by the hour.  I've added some links today to books and sites you may find helpful. Current involvements toward world-changing healthful living include:

  • EMDR Therapy (related to PTSD triggers) Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing.  Google it if you are interested in learning what it's about.
  • An 8 week class in MINDFULNESS BASED STRESS RELIEF (relying on the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD.)  For those of you interested classes are often covered by insurance under your mental health coverage if you have a diagnosis related to childhood trauma).
  • Study and work related to NON-VIOLENT COMMUNICATION (I've posted a link here.  Scroll down.)
  • Regular exposure to the work of Dr. Brene Brown, Pema Chodrun, Thicht Nhat Hanh & Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
  • Yoga and Water Exercise 
  • Music, music and more music.... Dancing, singing & swaying.  Will occasionally post a play list or a selection from my daily hits.
  • Attentive to Breathing
  • Attentive to Laughter
  • Attentive to Delight
Right now outside my window I hear the crisp sound of the dried and fallen leaves blowing across the sidewalk, falling from the trees and brushing away the traces of summer.  My heart is open.  I wish you comfort and healing.
