• Imagination, creativity and awareness are natural defence systems in our body and mind against trauma but are largely ignored.
  • Writing as a restorative tool is a scientifically recognized way to heal.
  • Expressive writing makes sense of our otherwise chaotic thoughts and emotions and can take any form, be it poetry, journaling, memoirs or random notes.
  • If we can tell a complete, complex and coherent story, we are no longer a victim, but a narrator or an observer.

Distractions and triggers do not bother a mindful listener, who is non-judgmental, compassionate and self-aware about any possible reactions.

To practice mindful listening, one needs a partner to practice, and about two minutes. As the partner starts to talk, the listener listens actively and nodes, without uttering a word. After two minutes, the listener can jot down two or three key points, noticing what got them triggered or distracted.

One can switch roles and repeat this roleplay a few times, being aware of the heightened compassion and connection that is formed.

The ability to communicate is the most crucial skill we have.

In Ancient Greece, where educators and philosophers invented language theory, public speaking was a teachable and learnable skill.

The Greeks had a comprehensive, practical and critical approach towards knowledge, psychology and social interaction, which is sadly missing in this modern age.
