    Beneficial sharing here…well said Elizabeth. Truly the chasm between excitation and ecstasy, fear and love, loss and intimacy…navigating that edge brings us home in claiming
    our full life force energy in a productive way!

    Thank you for sharing this Elizabeth – it is such a wonderful topic that poses so many questions. I also have the experience that trauma in it rawness closes down the heart as fear the fear of the trauma sets in and that as the trauma is re-negotiated the heart opens to a deeper space. I am fascinated by the link that Peter has given his talk on. Is there anywhere that you know of that I can gain access to recordings/transcripts of his talk? Many thanks and kind regards. Miles.

    Thank you for sharing this, and sharing your thoughts. I have had a spiritual practice for many years, and with getting into traumahealing the last years I have experienced a much deeper trust that has opened my spiritual heart more and more. I now also trust and accept bodily strange experienses in meditation, which earlier would have frightened me and put me off. The combination of spiritual practice and traumahealing has brougth me deep connection to my spiritual heart and to joy, bliss, connectedness, trust. I love Somatic Experiencing Therapy and TRE. I think they have been necessary for me to be able to continue and deepen my spiritual practice. Fear blocks, trust opens.

      Thank you Elin for this wonderful sharing. May it be an inspiration to others to work their trauma issues as part of their spiritual unfolding.

    Elizabeth, I agree with your note above, that in spiritual experience, the heart opens. Perhaps in the healing of the trauma, the traumatic wounding gets transformed … because – this time – the heart shows up to embrace and soothe and heal our woundings … and we are restored to our beautiful souls.
