This episode is all about the way we relate to ourselves as the first relationship that matters most and the first relationship to determine how we relate to others. The question is: how "at home" do you feel in your own skin, and how much trust do you find in relationship to yourself? The truth is, due to the traumatic stress we continue to live with and all that is left unmetabolized in us - many of us have come to embody an attitude of harshness, criticism and judgment towards the things we don't like about ourselves. But we stand little hope of positive change when - through our acts of self-aggression and self-betrayal - we continue to embody feelings of "not safe". We can change this, and our self-awareness & embodiment practices are one powerful way to do this.
