Executive dysfunction is a common struggle that can accompany trauma, making it extremely difficult to develop new habits that support a regulated nervous system. So, this month in the Healing Circle, we’ll be focusing on reclaiming the practice of ritual from our ancestors. Ritual supports a regulated nervous system because it requires your full presence and attention. There is intention, energy, and commitment behind it, bringing you into connection, awareness, and devotion. These are conscious acts that help improve accountability, alleviate grief, reduce anxiety, and increase confidence.
