Some food for thought – in this article Charles Eisenstein writes about fatigue and depression as being a refusal in some way to participate in a world gone wrong. It is a refusal to contribute our divine gifts to the aggrandizement of that world.
In his article on Kicking the Stress and Trauma Bucket Before it Kicks You Richmond Heath speaks about how our bodies possess ancient wisdom and movements designed to recover from stress and trauma, and to move towards thriving during times of safety.
TRE (Tension and Trauma Release Exercises) is one of the most wonderful modalities I have come across and it enables the body to shift into a restorative mode. Please come and join me on my next 6 week course and learn how to use it by yourself at home.
6 WEEK TRE GROUP COURSE STARTING ON TUESDAY 6 SEPTEMBER IN CLAREMONT
We are all affected by stress – it is part of life.
Designed by David Berceli, TRE is a simple technique that helps your body release stress or tension that has accumulated from day-to-day life experiences, immediate or ongoing stressful situations, and traumatic life events. A set of simple exercises invokes a mild tremor which helps bring the nervous system back to a state of calm and balance. Once learned TRE is a gentle and effective self-healing tool.
Some of the reported benefits of TRE include:
- Greater sense of calm and inner peace
- Less anxiety and worry
- Reduced pain
- Improved sleep quality
- Reduced symptoms of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
- Increased emotional resilience
- Relief from chronic medical conditions
- Release of muscular tension from exercise and sport
- Increased mobility and flexibility
- Increased spiritual connection

A friend of mine who battles with depression commented on the brave and honest article written on depression by Mia McCarthy. It is a long article which tries to give an understanding of depression.
My friend commented that the author’s list of things that people can do to help a person with depression is good – so if you do not want to read the whole article scroll right to the end for the list of seven things that friends and family can do to be of help to the person that is depressed.
