We know trauma impacts the brain. Using the principals of mindfulness and the vehicle of creativity, Rebecca will discuss how calming a trauma client’s nervous system allows for change to happen. As we slow down and listen to the small details of our experience and have those unique aspects heard, a true shift happens. Through the creative process, a trauma experience can be transformed and moved to a place of healing.
