Use Your Triggers to Do Something Beneficial for You AND Your Nervous System
I am excited to resume my conversations with Trauma Awareness activist, Shay Seaborne in which we talk about many and varied aspects of stress, trauma and neuroscience, and how the Alexander Technique has enabled her to put key concepts into practice in her own ongoing healing from severe complex post-traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD).
In this video we talk about how an idea from my BodyIntelligence work and the Alexander Technique has helped her “turn around” one of her most stressful triggers – hyperacusis and synesthesia stemming from trauma. We also discuss other situations in which you can use “the turnaround” and how you can use it yourself.
Watch our conversation here:
Having these conversations with Shay about her experience and what she has learned over her many years of dealing with severe developmental and more recent trauma, has been enlightening to me as a professional, and also heartening to know how much BodyIntelligence, my approach to the Alexander Technique, has helped her. She has learned a lot about neuroscience along the way and we both enjoy making the connections between the science and what we practice in the Alexander Technique, and we both hope you will find this interesting and helpful, too.
