Until recently, trauma was thought of as an occurrence from extraordinary events such as acts of terrorism, human rights violation, war, and so forth; yet trauma may occur from any event that overwhelms our capacity to cope, and leaves us unable to recover our sense of connectedness. Trauma is a normal part of life. Trauma often occurs in our early years when we are lacking the necessary resources to fully recover. Early trauma is the constellation that forms the limited self. This limited self continues to recreate itself throughout life, often hidden in the unconscious, until the trauma is resolved. Traumatic states have the power to throw us into deep despair, yet are also capable of radical transformation, in which compas- sion and expanded consciousness may emerge. The presentation will define the nature and characteristics of trauma, as well as its destructive and generative dimensions. We will also explore why somatic trauma resolution has an intrinsically spiritual core, and how it fosters the embodiment of something essential for being.
