"Triggers are like little psychic explosions that crash through avoidance and bring the dissociated, avoided trauma suddenly, unexpectedly, back into consciousness." ― Carolyn Spring

"The people who trigger us to feel negative emotions are messengers. They are messengers for the unhealed parts of our being." - Teal Swan

"I wish it were a thing to have trigger warnings in books or movies.”#changetheconversation

"We are not victims of our emotions or thoughts. We can understand our triggers and use them as tools to help us respond more objectively." - Elizabeth Thornton

"Today create emotional freedom.Use being triggered by the world around you as an invitation to go within and choose a new experience." - Gary Zukav


Do you sometimes get really upset about relatively minor things (dirty dishes left in the sink, a person who took a parking spot you had waited for, a friend running a few minutes late for dinner? These are triggered responses. Come to this series to understand these feelings and develop strategies to manage your responses. We will learn about triggers - what they are and why they have such a strong impact on our behavior. In a safe environment, we will understand how to examine and work with them. It is an insightful and powerful conversation. See you there.
