Potential For Healing

From the book “Healing Invisible Wounds” by Richard Mollica. In his book he discusses the experiences of refugees who have experienced extreme and profound trauma. And despite the unspeakably horrifying experiences these people have gone through… what the author found is that most of them are able to find healing and continue living their lives. It’s not that they don’t experience sadness or grief when reflecting on their pasts. But their bodies are able to release their traumatic energy and they move forward in life as whole people. This book asks us to take a moment and consider how our bodies are already providing us with the tools to heal. What do our bodies already naturally do on our behalf that leads us towards healing? This book asks us to consider: maybe the natural state of the body is to flow towards a place of healing and wholeness. Take some time and think: how have I already, naturally, instinctually, moved towards healing? What have I already done on my behalf? And how could my environment more deeply support those instincts I already have? #healinginvisiblewounds #bibliotherapy #booksabouttrauma #therapybooks #healingtrauma #healingptsd #healingpath #healingjourney #mentalhealth #mentalwellness #posttraumaticgrowth #ptsdrecovery #traumarecovery #eugeneoregon #eugenetherapist #mentalhealththerapist
