“To be alive as a human being guarantees we will all experience trauma in our lives. Traumas of any kind, be it personal traumas rooted in childhood, traumatic adult experiences, or collective traumas such as wars, systemic discrimination or pandemics shock the body, creating an imbalance and vulnerability that must be healed – not solely through the mind, but as powerfully through the body.” (Berceli, 2008)
