What I’m reading this month

Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness bookI was delighted to receive this book in the mail recently – not only is Dr. Treleaven’s book a long-awaited and valuable contribution to the field of scientific mindfulness-based programs, but it is also a timely exploration of the relationship between trauma, privilege, power, and oppression.

From an article he wrote recently:

“Trauma is not just an individual tragedyโ€”it is rooted in larger social systems that shape our lives. When we peel back the layers of a traumatic experience, we find that theyโ€™re bound up within a larger social context.”ย Safety is an essential ingredient in the development of any self-awareness practice.
