This week we begin a 4 week class called “Soul Care for Resiliency”, based on “The Body Keeps Score” by Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk. Decades of psychiatric and neuroscience research has revealed the physical and spiritual tole that trauma takes on us. Trauma makes physical changes in our bodies and brains that go on affecting us long after the initial recovery has occurred.
Just as trauma can change our bodies & minds, researchers have found some practices that heal those long lasting effects — many are spiritual practices that have been used for centuries. In this class, you’ll learn about the effects of trauma on the body and explore spiritual practices that being about restoration.
Sundays 1:30-2:30 p.m., Oct 23 to Nov 13, @KunaUMC.
