Lynn Marie Lumiere, MFT ~ If the Buddha had Trauma: Being Present with Stress Activation

Sunday, February 23, 2020 @ 11am-1pm (Pacific Time)

Throughout the history of spirituality, very little has been taught about how to be present with stress activation in our nervous system. In Buddha’s day that was not even considered. In fact, it is only in recent decades that this has been understood at all. At this time, life on planet Earth is stressful for everyone, and most of us have experienced trauma in greater or lesser degrees. This can make both our meditation practice and our awakening/embodiment process more challenging.

Nondual wisdom teaches us that awakening involves being present with “what is.” However, when it comes to stress and trauma that may require additional, skillful support, which will be discussed and demonstrated. This webinar is also an introduction to a 4 week course, “Awakening with Trauma,” that Lynn Marie is teaching beginning February 24th. The course will go into more depth about trauma and how to be with that as we awaken. This webinar will be primarily focused on working with the participants experientially.

Lynn Marie Lumiere, MFT is a nondual psychotherapist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, and author. She is the co-author of The Awakening West and is a contributing author to The Sacred Mirror, as well as the author of Awakened Relating: A Guide to Embodying Undivided Love in Intimate Relationships. Lynn Marie has been a student of Adyashanti for over 20 years. For more information, please see www.lynnmarielumiere.com
