    Really useful video (and nice to see Leanne in motion πŸ™‚ ) – the idea of expansion followed by contraction/freak out/hide/run helps put some things in context for me. Building the container and expanding it gradually makes so much sense and offers hope for meaningful expansion that is concrete and can be sustained.

    Well done Leanne! AH Judy, yes, sustained expansion. (And some patience and kindness when a bit of shrinkage occurs!!)

    Welcome ladies! Glad it made sense and thanks for the feedback – expanding my nervous system in the area of videos as we go! Patience and kindness is a definite necessity on the road to sustained and meaningful expansion πŸ™‚

    Hello to my fellow Sanctuary participants. My name is Teresa and I am here for your virtual support as we meander together in safety though old wounds. it has been a long highway of freakish speed to understand how to create peace in my central nervous system. Not there yet.

    I love the expansion and contraction–like breathing new peace into my shredded soul. I hope to stitch some of it back together as we wander along. There is this well of sadness that my freakish speed covers in thick camouflage. Many parts of me are still hidden for a perception of protection and safety.

    I loved watching your video Leanne. It was calming to listen to your voice and “see” you.

    Great to meet you all!

    Yay Teresa you made it πŸ™‚
    Sorry to see you’re in the expert scapegoat category. It sounds like you have some great insight into what’s been happening inside your nervous system in response to this. Hoping for a great sense of peace to grow and flourish within you now x

    Thank introduction was an “Ah-ha!” moment or a “God thump on the head” for me. Now, I understand what trauma really is, how to better deal with it . . . and why we deal with trauma the way that we do. Thank you, Teacher!
