This week's guest on Being Human is educator, mental health counsellor, yoga teacher and co-founder of the Center for Trauma and Embodiment (CFTE), Jenn Turner.
Trauma is a pervasive aspect of all human experience. Understandably, it's one that no one wants to talk about, and yogis are no exception.
Jenn's work is piercing this taboo in the yoga world. She's learning lessons about dealing with the impacts of buried pain that we can all apply in our lives, no matter our walk of life.

We talk:

  • The double-think of mainstream yoga
  • Shifting from didact to 'holder of space'
  • Embracing the chaos
  • Why survivors must always be the authors of their healing
  • The essence of trauma-sensitive leadership
