Re-Pairing: Healing Disturbing and Traumatic Memories

In aspiring to Suzuki Roshi’s wisdom, we sometimes encounter memories of trauma that feel overwhelming. We can also be triggered into anxiety and anger when attempting sensitive conversations with those we love. This presentation will explore recent advances in our understandings of trauma and its treatment, including new therapeutic processes that involve no conscious experiencing of the traumatic memory. Health care providers such as medical and hospital personnel serving and bearing witness to those suffering physically, emotionally and spiritually, can experience acute or chronic distress, and even vicarious and secondary trauma. We will address these issues with some new developments in the field of trauma therapy, modified into an easy, rapid visualization exercise: Blink-Flash Meditation. Participants will have the opportunity to experience this healing visualization process. When traumatic memories are re-experienced as being in the past, we can more easily embrace Suzuki Roshi’s wish: “enjoy your problems,” and see that “the world is its own magic.”
