Today we're talking about PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and C-PTSD (complex post-traumatic stress disorder). With so much to unpack, we discuss what these two things are, the differences, neurological factors, somatic sensations, how they show up in our day to day or in our development, what impact they have on our relationships, and how to navigate these depths while living a life full of wonder. Please subscribe, share, and review if you feel called. See you in there!

Active Imagination: Confrontation with the Unconscious:
One hand on heart and one below the belly. Feet hips width apart. Slowly rock side to side and close your eyes and breathe.
Practice for relationships:
- “I have this narrative ___________________, would you please confirm or deny it?”
- “Would you like me to just listen or offer solutions?”
- “Do you have space at the moment to talk?"
