The practices I suggest are 100% VOLUNTARY and may cause voluntary stress. Some people cannot tolerate forms of stress that have come to be associated with meditation or particular forms of breathing, movement, and self-reflective exercises. For those people, especially those who experience dissociation, have a trauma history/and or a diagnosis of PTSD, you should probably have someone assist you in your self-study. You must have a felt sense of safety in your body and have coping skills in place for self-regulating and grounding in order to do some of the practices I include in my self-study courses and on my website. Please work with your therapist and other providers accordingly. You can also contact me directly for resources related to self-study, trauma, and nervous system health.
