It’s really amazing for myriad reasons & it was good buying further along the path than when 1st learning of it. Speaking only for myself, its content is relatable, having many “yes that’s it!” moments & feeling validated & grateful at the same time. There were also concrete examples & new idea toolbox suggestions. A powerful reminder that what we need to heal the tender parts within us, really is within us. And that might mean seeking outside resources to gather tools to get there. I won’t sugar coat it- sometimes the work is sometimes slow, lonely & feels impossibly hard, yet (for me) so worth it getting through the messy middle & move on to the next part of my work. I’ve loved the quote from Siddhartha “We are not going in circles, we are going upwards. The path is a spiral; we have already climbed many steps” & a very similar message was conveyed in the book.
Like any advice/self help book, take what works & leave the rest behind. T/trauma is deeply individual/personal & how events in our lives impact everyone differently. One size does not fit all. Sending love to those who need it. 🌀❤️
I highly recommend this book to those new to trauma healing as well as to those who have been healing for years. Reach for Wellspring of Compassion when you are in doubt or pain. Let yourself be nourished by the creative approaches and heart-centered acceptance that flow through and from this book.
Written for anyone who has suffered trauma in the recent or distant past, the book gives support and practical guidance to those who are ready to begin their own recovery, or to deepen their recovery by neutralizing old triggers. I was surprised that the book touched on all the areas I've studied over the years, and it answered lingering questions about: a harsh inner critic, anxiety, flashbacks, dissociation, anger, shame, and why boundaries are so difficult for people who have suffered trauma.
The author, Sonia Connolly, is well-acquainted with all the facets of trauma and is trained in Somatic Experiencing, based on Peter Levine's work with trauma. Her topics and suggestions create a thread that ties together the different manifestations of trauma, with insight and information drawn from both personal experience and many experts in the field.
Wellspring of Compassion provides a masterful view of the many facets of trauma, while at the same time offering kindness, compassion and warmth. Non-judgmental and non-clinical, Wellspring of Compassion will give you the tools and resources to shift from mere survival to being able to compassionately reconnect with yourself, your body, and your life.
