Deepening Self-Warmth: Trauma-Informed Mindfulness


Would you like some acknowledgement for the lacerating thoughts and difficult experiences you’ve had when you’ve tried to meditate? You are invited to this space to deepen your practice and learn with Sarah about self-warmth in meditation – with a trauma-informed lens. This special course acknowledges the unhealed trauma that has an impact on how we sit.



The course will meet via zoom. Recordings will be made available to those who are registered for the live program.

What To Expect:

In this class series, participants will learn and practice moving into a resonant mindfulness practice through the following:

  • Explore the impact of trauma on meditation
  • Experience trauma healing
  • Dissolve contracts that lead to self-hate and self-criticism
  • Take away processes to continue to heal trauma
  • Have conversations with the lacerating default mode network
  • Learn very short, one-breath meditation exercises
  • Integrate the value of guided meditations

Classes will include lecture and breakout sessions to build resonant mindfulness skills with increased familiarity and confidence.

The classes will be recorded for participants in many time zones

Who is This Course For?

Students, from beginners to advanced, who have been interested in building their mindfulness practice but have found that traditional meditation and approaches to mindfulness leave them bored or tortured by intrusive memories, worries, fear, shame or obsessions about their and others’ well-being. For those who are suffering from unhealed trauma, and will benefit from a slightly different way forward with researched-backed benefits of self-resonant mindfulness. All welcome.
