Healing Trauma with Re-contextualization

Lindsay and I often talk about what we have experienced and how it affects us. One night during one of those conversations Lindsay brought up this idea of healing through re-contextualization. Think about what you’ve experienced, and in this case (for us) it was spiritual trauma. Now go through these questions:

Without taking away from what I experienced, how have I …

  • grown?
  • developed new thoughts?
  • learned to love myself and others better?
  • developed new freedoms and practices that serve me better?

Lindsay and I plan on recording a future episode where we answer these questions separately and then share them with each other as an episode. Feel free to think about these questions and let us know if you find this thought exercise helpful!
