    Thank you for some novel insights in to the dynamic and static states of Mindful practices. Trauma informed care is essential to emotional success and homeostasis for the spirit of the person trying to regain emotional balance in their biological experience.

    Inspired by this hope-filled discussion that we can assist a world filled with trauma, stress , addiction and isolation by moving to generational change – students who meet challenges with attention, emotional regulation, adaptability and resilience and who show compassion and empathy. Thank you.

    Dynamic mindfulness for the stress of the super dynamic world and ever-increasing complexity of life.
    Any practitioner of Dynamic mindfulness is likely to agree and attest of its potency as an antidote significantly to stress.
    Any plans to explore and develop the techniques of practice further?
    Thanks for sharing .

    Just wanted to say thankyou – I really enjoyed this talk…wish I could have shared it with my colleagues. I’ve talked to my principal and told her that I feel in our board “mental health & wellness” are just words…way to little action. I’ve requested that we have more training on trauma informed practice particularly since we all teach children in various types of treatment settings.
