When I think about teaching attachment—I feel this way about trauma, too—it’s a human journey issue. I don’t know if you can be on the planet very long before something is going to hit you one way or the other, and it would be really helpful to know how to move through those things.

There is a lot of great information about Attachment Theory. It’s not a new idea, for sure, but about how do we:

  • Work with it in terms of implicit memory?
  • Work with it somatically, because it’s encoded in the body?
  • Excavate it, then move it towards secure attachment?

That’s the piece I really want to highlight because I think it’s very creative (and actually really fun and possible), and it gives us a flashlight on the labyrinth of what used to be unconscious and somewhat hidden.

I really invite your experiences and experiments, and I like to just share as much I can about possibilities. It’s a very wide open and creative field, so there is a lot of triggering that can be done.

Your ideas trigger mine, and, mine might trigger something for you – causing us to trigger each other. I think it’s really valuable to discover this together and all part of this beautiful journey!

    I have had to heal trauma at two major times in my life. In my early 20’s, I even experienced a reset of my system that Carl Jung called the transcendent function. Regardless of form healing is of love. Learn the language of your client over time. When stuff happens and it will, be there with an open heart and in wise mind. Your presence is the gift. There will be healing. Be brave and courageous. Form can only go so far. Love has boundaries. Be there.
