On suffering and strength

This week, I read a deeply moving article about trauma and one pathway through it. The experience of coping with trauma can be so incredibly debilitating and isolating. 

In my experience, therapies like Craniosacral Therapy can be a lifeline. The author of the article mentions at one poignant moment that the simple act of being fed by her sister reminded her that she was alive. Sometimes something as simple as gentle, nurturing touch and nourishment can be that thread tying us to the life before and the life ahead.

Have a read at the link above. The author has an amazing way with words, which is incredible as so many of us struggle to put into words what aches most within us.
