Wounds And Gifts: Finding The Story That Is Trying To Live Through Us

We have all been wounded. Our gifts are often buried below trauma, oppression, and shame. Even when we experience our deeper self it can feel re-wounding as we try to step into our biggest self. Trauma can isolate us and hold us back; it can also be something that initiates us to a deeper experience of Self and connection to others when we can find our gifts and share them with others.

Presented by The International Focusing Institute - Jeffrey Morrison

We have all been wounded. Our gifts are often buried below trauma, oppression, and shame. Even when we experience our deeper self it can feel re-wounding as we try to step into our biggest self. Trauma can isolate us and hold us back; it can also be something that initiates us to a deeper experience of Self and connection to others when we can find our gifts and share them with others.

Following a brief overview of trauma from a Focusing-Oriented Therapy (FOT) perspective, participants will be invited to explore their own life experiences that have been wounding and others that were enlivening, in search of their implicit gifts.

Therapists and other healing professionals will experience how Presence, guided inquiry, and Focusing can facilitate safety, regulation, and connection. This ultimately leads to unwinding wounds and finding gifts, strengths, and resources for growth.

Jeffrey Morrison, MA, LMHC, Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapist and Focusing Coordinator, lives and practices on Vashon Island, Washington. He specializes in working with complex trauma and teaching Focusing-Oriented Therapy (FOT) to therapists and other healing professionals. He has developed a Training Program, which blends Focusing, mythology, mindfulness, and other embodied practices for unwinding trauma and restoring wholeness. www.seattlefocusing.org/training-program

Jeffrey is the founder of the Seattle Focusing Institute, which is dedicated to teaching Focusing, meditation, Trauma Releasing Exercises, movement practices, and more. His second year program in FOT and complex trauma begins in September and is open to experienced Focusers by permission. www.seattlefocusing.org
