Mindfulness is often presented as a panacea for everything from mental illness to addiction. What the trend unfortunately overlooks is that certain mindfulness practices can be retraumatizing for survivors and counter-productive, if not outright harmful.

In this group, we'll explore why this is, share our experiences and struggles, learn techniques and practices that are less likely to be triggering, and let go of self blame about why it hasn't been working for us. Indeed, there is no «right» way to be mindful or meditate, and it's best to customize your practice to best suit your needs.

I'll be referencing the book _Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness_ by David A Treleaven.

This is a PEER-TO-PEER group. The instructor/facilitator has no special training besides being a lifelong autodidact and voracious bookworm, as well as many years of experience battling mental illness, trauma, and addiction. See reimaginingrecovery.org to read her story.
