I share my expertise and theories for navigating sensitivity and mental health demands in a time of evolutionary change and extreme demands. My thoughts are especially concerned for youth and young adults as they navigate unprecedented initiations or what I think are Soul Emergencies. See the note below this video
Stephen Porgas writes in The Polyvagal Theory that “to connect and co-regulate with others is our biological imperative. We experience this imperative as an inherent quest for safety that can be reached only through successful social relationships. In which we co-regulate our behavior and physiology.”
African wisdom teacher Malidome Patrice Some wrote in The Healing Wisdom of Africa: Finding Life Purpose Through Nature, Ritual and Community, “without a ritual structure, people undergoing a natural emergence of spirit within often feel as if they are going crazy or are imagining things…community provides a safety net in which a person can rest until he or she has become reintegrated.”
REST UNTIL SHE OR HE HAS BECOME REINTEGRATED>. Yes, more rest is needed for us all.
