Supporting Practioners when Trauma is Triggered
with Lassiter Williams
December 10 / 6:00 PM - December 10 / 7:00 PM
We will be joined by Lassister Williams, from the St. Johnsbury Shambhala Center and former staffer at Karme Choling, to hear from her about her experience with trauma and meditation. Deep relaxation and meditative states can be triggering for people who have experienced trauma and, given how many people in our larger community have experienced trauma in their lives, we'd like to be more knowledgeable about working with this situation - if it comes up during a meditation interview or session.
We will sit together for a short period, then Lassiter will give a 10 minute talk, followed by some conversation. Think of this offering as a sort of 'professional development' opportunity for those of us who create a safe container for meditation practioners - and support them on their practice journey -- while in our space.
