Trauma and the Spiritual Path
When we walk the spiritual path we will come face to face with any unresolved trauma in our systems.
It will show up in the undigested emotions we uncover in our bodies, in the dynamics that play out between us and our teachers, and in the conditioning that is revealed through our practice. If we are unaware of what is happening, we may find ourselves reenacting our trauma within our spiritual communities.
Our spiritual practice can also become part of our trauma response, and so prevent us from immersing in the truth of the moment and finding that connection we so desperately seek. Or we may simply find meeting the present moment too painful because of unresolved trauma – we fled connection with ourselves and this moment because of trauma, and we won’t be able to return until that trauma is resolved.
But if we’re aware of how trauma can show up and play out on the spiritual path, then we can skillfully work with it as part of the awakening and liberation process. Kara-Leah will share how to work with trauma on the spiritual path, including Tantrik View Teachings, practices & tools.
