Your workshop really launched my interest in this area of trauma and the interventions that really impact the brain and the body. You are such a wealth of information on neuro-biology – mostly you provided a practical guide to working with students and engaging them when they are checked out or hyper-aroused. I love the way you were able to break down the symptomatology and a way foster connection and competence in the classroom. I find it sequential as we teach educators the importance of building community in the classroom, a sense of competence, to a sense of esteem and then individual tools to use as they grow. The teachers are really responding to relationship building and incorporating mindfulness and yoga. It’s been a wonderful adventure and I want to thank you for the inspiration. I keep your Mindful Statements posted next to my desk to keep me on track!
