Sept 17, 2015: With the Nuns

Blog6
As for adult nuns, more than 20 of them joined us in two separate classes. We were informed before that some of them had very traumatic backgrounds and some were very affected by the earthquake. So we prepared ourselves to take extra care when receiving them. They all listened very attentively and paid great attention to each exercise. There are some very senior nuns and they helped young ones to follow the class. Some are of Tibetan origin and some are from Nepal’s Himalayan district. In the class, English, Nepali, Tibetan and probably Himalayan local dialects were heard and they helped each other to learn the exercise. It was lovely to see this expression of community.

Once we began practicing on the floor, all the chatting and giggling became silence. Everyone was focusing on their own body tremors. There were a couple of them who felt the sensation was too overwhelming but others were quietly enjoying this new experience of the body’s natural release.

Once done, their faces were so shiny and their lips were so stretched to their ears that I thought they could not smile any bigger than that.

When I asked each of them about their experience, they were so painfully shy and giggling and just said one word like “nice”, “relaxed”, “happy”… or “a bit scared”. But when I asked “who wants to try again?”, all put their hands straight up without hesitation. That enthusiastic response said everything. I will go back to them again in a couple of days…

What a wonderful experience we are having. Gurutama and I spend every night talking about our daily experience. What a learning and what a privilege… we are so blessed to be here.

    I thank Susanne Thomas from TREAfrica who intorduced me to this wonderful and natural way of releasing trauma in 2012. The experience keeps on playing at the back of my mind. I am now keen to go on and learn these exercises so I will help myself, family and community around me.
