BE HERE NOW - EMBODIED and PRESENT AWARENESS MEDITATION
In this 8 week series, Michael Lee, the Founder of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy will guide you in easy to follow body and breath meditation practices that will bring you home to now. You will engage both body and breath as anchors to support a shift in your "lens of self-reference". From a place of greater equanimity, stress, anxiety, fear and tension can be transformed. As the series progresses you will become more empowered to lean into life with greater ease and ride the bumps on the road of life without falling off the bicycle. Themes like Awareness, Acceptance, Choice, and Discernment will be focused in the meditation and in a short life integration that follows the practice.

Happy (belated) Valentine’s Day from everyone at the Trauma Research Foundation! What comes to your mind when you think of Valentine’s Day? Traditionally it’s thought of as a time that celebrates love – gifts and gestures are given, and we show our appreciation to our loved ones. However, if you experience the symptoms of PTSD or trauma, it can be challenging; compliments or affection, may not feel safe, regardless of intention. Part of healing is to learn to be present in the moment with what comes up. We offer this opportunity to notice love and compassion of our own via this blog.
