“Mindfulness can enhance present-moment awareness, increase self-compassion, and strengthen a person’s ability to self-regulate—all important skills that support trauma recovery. The question for those of us who teach and utilize mindfulness is thus how we can help minimize the potential dangers of meditation to trauma survivors while simultaneously leveraging its potential benefits.” – David Treleaven
