TRUE HEALING RESONATES THROUGH EACH BREATH: August 7, 2020

“Racial wounding is painful, and approaching those wounds risks reopening them because race-based stress and trauma linger.

But our emotional scars are the marks that tell a story of times when life really hurt us but did not break us.

They are indicators of our great strength and resilience. We need not be afraid to approach them or to show them.

True healing comes when you learn to face your wounds, not hide them.”

Gail Parker,
Restorative Yoga for Ethnic and Race-Based Stress and Trauma

“Ethnic and race-based traumatic stress injury are ongoing, recurrent, and cumulative, and not something you get over easily or quickly,
because in a racialized world events of ethnic and race-based stress and trauma are likely to occur anytime, anywhere, and without warning over a lifetime.”

Gail Parker, from Restorative Yoga for Ethnic and Race-Based Stress and Trauma

BREATHE DEEPLY AND CENTER HERE

“Do not hide from your shadow. Shine the light of awareness on your darkness. When you label yourself as bad, wrong, inferior, or unworthy,
you are looking through
a distorted lens.

Turn your gaze inward and you will become aware that you are complete
and whole at
the deepest level.”

Gail Parker, from Restorative Yoga for Ethnic and Race-Based Stress and Trauma
