Research proves that 93% of communication occurs pre-verbally (e.g. via tone of voice, gestures and posture, micro-movements, facial expression,5 senses) while only 7% is through speech.

Traumatic stress interferes with our ability to express verbally and make meaning of unmetabolised experience(s). The wounding, fragmentation and angst caused by trauma (& adversity) are undeniable and long term.

Unfortunately, cognition is an unreliable asset for recovery from trauma.

Trauma survivors implicitly seek shelter in relational safety and gentleness which is a proof of our innate organic intelligence towards safety. Our sensory-somatic brilliance can be harvested through somatic attunement and by including the nervous system.

People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner. I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.
