Sometimes, it can be good to just observe
Does all that we’re aware of in ourselves need to have meaning? Do we need to explain all that we can sense in our bodies? I don't think so. Being aware of being, of sensing without explaining --or being aware with curiosity and patience-- can be a gift, especially when it's a practice you choose.

What makes this trauma informed?
Choices, invitations, noticing, open-ended experiments. Read more about those here.
After listening to the episode, perhaps take a moment to check in: did you notice something that you want to remember or follow up on? If yes, maybe jot it down in a notebook or record a voice memo to help you remember.
You can give it a try when you're ready
Be moving, be true, be you
