Embody your Roots

In this day and age we live in a cultural frame where our basic immersion experience correlates with the structural impact of a consumer driven society, imposing on humanity an instinctual mentality of “survival of the fittest.” Consume or be consumed tends to become a normative stance. Physiologically our bodies become a sounding board for our environment(s) cuing one into when we have core needs that should be tended to. Letting us know through bodily signals or cues an ache for nourishment, rest, expression of sexuality, connectivity through relationships, the list is truly innumerable. We are intrinsically wired to take in our surroundings and our experiences through our senses, minds and bodies. What happens when there has been assault or a rupture to feelings of safety within the body by way of trauma narrative(s), neglect or abuse? We begin to be at odds with our own bodies. Instead of allowing the body to be a place of rest and safety it becomes a warzone or the scene of a crime. Van der Kolk beautifully notes that our bodies keep score, or inventory of the traumas they have endured over time. Even if we cannot always voice or come to terms with some of our life experiences the body has a way of retaining somatic memory. Meaning, trauma leaves a residue or footprint of what we have endured. I will engage the importance of why deepening body trust can be a gateway towards healing a greater sense of embodiment. Being fully alive takes risk yet it’s worth the fight.
