  1. Hello community, I hope this is the appropriate place for this post. Admins, please contact me if it is not! In my practice recently, I think that stored trauma is surfacing. After spending the last month trying to work through it with RAIN, which is the most effective tool I have, I have come to think I may need to work with a trauma therapist. The catch is, I’m wondering if I could work with a student who needs experience and hours, as I cannot afford much. Does anyone have any contacts or ideas? And just to be clear- I am not asking for money, nor do I want it . Most warmly to you all, Melissa

  4. Severe mental health issues led me here, in a roundabout way, and I remember the daily suffering. Mindfulness meditation "saved" me (and trauma work) and I can't stand to think of others being trapped in their brains the way I was. There are so many opportunities for joy in this world, and we all have a choice - we just don't always know it! So I guess I want to ease suffering. Melissa

  8. Hello everyone, I've been participating for a few weeks, but haven't done an introduction. My name is Melissa Loyer, and I'm from southern Ontario, Canada. I'm a 500 hour certified meditation coach, and I am so excited to be participating in this program. I've joined because while meditation coaching is good, and does good, my focus is teaching mindfulness meditation for mental health. Before learning to meditate, I wasn't able to cope with day-to-day life, as there was childhood trauma that ended up leading to anorexia nervosa, alcohol abuse, and a scary amount of self-injury. I remember vividly the moment I was told that the brain secretes thoughts in the same way the mouth secretes saliva, and that I am not my thoughts - I felt hope and bawled like a baby. I joined "The Power of Awareness", led by Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach and my life hasn't been the same since. I'm loving every moment of this course.
