There is safety in moving slowly. I've been slowing things down for a while now in honor of my own maturation, and the way I work with others. The earmarks of trauma is that whatever event occurred, it happened too fast for your nervous system to process. In the absence of follow-up care, the energy of that event gets stuck in our body, and may run loops there until some form of release, witnessing, and reconfiguration can occur.
Agree. It reminds me of the "slow and steady wins the race." Work is work so it doesn't matter how long it takes. Two steps forward, one back, sometimes two, who cares. Nobody's counting. Warm hugs, my beautiful friend!
Great perspective.....that's one reason I love the trees and sequoias
In slowness, the magic of the light in everything can reveal itself, shadows can be brought to light, healing can open to us slowly, wildly, widely. Beautiful.
