EMDR Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing(EMDR) is a relatively new trauma therapy developed by Francine Shapiro. which uses rapid eye movement to connect the parts of the brain which store narrative information with parts of the brain that store memories, emotions and psychic states. 


According to Shapiro, "when a traumatic or distressing experience occurs, it may overwhelm normal coping mechanisms. The memory and associated stimuli are inadequately processed and stored in an isolated memory network.[1] " 


Improving left right brain communication is thought to help processs distressing memories, which resolve when prossessed. 


Trauma experience is a whole body experience -e.g. Distressing ideas and memories are experienced as body sensations, therefore many treatments are now more geared to combine body work, tapping, chanting sensory identification, and whole body involvement as well as relaxation techniques. 


For example body scans, autogenic training, tapping. 


The light therapy tool below is used by imagining or remembering the trauma experience while watching the lights.

 Mantra Meditatitions

Kurtan Kryia

  1. Mantra:Saa: Infinity
    Taa:  Life
    Naa: Death
    Maa: Rebirth


    4 primal sounds of Sa Ta Na and Ma, are chanted and form the cycle of creation. 
    The Infinite, Cosmic Source, includes all of Life and Individual Existence manifest. 


    From birth of all life and form, we experience death, change and transformation of what was;  into a rebirth of something new. 


    As we experience the birth of something new, we realise the joy of the Infinite creative Power experienced again and the cycle repeats itself.
