In my PTSD recovery, I incorporated dance. It started out as just a crazy idea that I wanted to feel joy and so I decided to access that potential in myself by learning to dance.

But then, an interesting thing happened: I reconnected to my body through learning the movements, the expression of sound and the collaboration that had to occur in order for me to dance at all.

Slowly, gently, I reforged a connection between my body and my mind.

How connected are you to your body? What can you do to enhance that connection so that your recovery goes deep into both the physical and emotional aspects of who you are?
