The Wisdom Circle Method is a practice in mindfulness group therapy. It has been studied by researchers at Duke University for its power to transform trauma. It draws on a wide range of ancient wisdom and modern knowledge. We begin by... paying attention to the simple act of breathing into the body as an introduction to feeling more alive as stress is relieved. (MindBody Centering Yoga) We then rest together and notice feeling each part of the body, with respect and curiosity, to reduce emotional reactivity and increase self-regulation. (Yoga Nidra)

Next, we move into our bodies... As we slowly move, the body is invited to feel more comfortable and calm for self- regulation and health. (Polyvagal Theory) The core relationship in our lives is with our bodies. This is embodiment. When we understand the body better, how it grows and expresses itself, we know how we are really doing in the world, moment to moment. (Body Mind Centering)

We develop a sense of self... As we develop a sense of Self, we can move into relationships withothers, with knowledge of our tendencies of reactivity, which may be rooted in patterns of behavior from generations of familial, cultural, societal, and spiritual practices. (Humanism/Family Systems)

We shift the narrative... The central portion of the session explores expressive writing to strengthen each person’s voice and positive identity. (Expressive Writing) Shifting into a more positive narrative and self-talk can relieve the pressure of hopelessness and positive aspects of the human experience that make life worth living. (Positive Psychology) Trauma happens on a spectrum, so waves of intensity ebb and flow. As we learn to tend to moment-to- moment conditions, we feel less abandoned and more supported, hence trusting ourselves. (C- PTSD research from Van de Kolk at Trauma Institute)

And learn to tend to the moment. 

Finally...We commit to stay. Each Wisdom Circle Gathering ends with using a powerful mind-body-heart affirmation for processing where we are, where we may go, and our commitment to stay with ourselves through it all. (EFT)

The cost of the Wisdom Circle on 8/19 is $99 (scholarships/ sliding scale tickets are available). Included in this price is a yoga class taught by Nina on 8/19 that begins at 12 pm.
