Little bit of research into Mindfulness and came across this - extremely important piece of research:

You might want to also check out Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness, which is written by one of Willoughby Britton's collaborators.   I've also found somatic experiencing useful as a therapy method for working through trauma, and there's a good book by the creator of it.

Thanks JP.  I will check this out for sure.  I think she is doing a really important job.  There is more going on in this practice than any of use are really aware and for me I think people its relaxation are wrong.

I remember once watching an documentary on LSD - and one old hippy said 'You better be ready for it because if you're not God is bounce your soul through hell and back.'  A bit JudoChristian I know but stuck in my mind for sure.  Mindfulness is the same thing.
