David Treleaven joins us to speak about mindfulness and trauma.
Many of us come to practice from some suffering in our lives. Our usual, tried and true coping mechanisms aren’t keeping up, and we’re exploring some avenues we’ve not checked out before. There are some promising studies indicating mindfulness can help survivors of traumatic experiences, continue that healing process.
