Do you know what it means to be a compassionate witness? It’s a term that’s been bandied around quite a bit recently and is something we’ve discussed in depth in Imogen Ragone‘s weekly BodyIntelligence, Neurobiology, and Trauma ongoing study group. Being able to listen – to witness – another with presence and compassion does not always come easily. Yet with knowledge and skills, we can become better at providing this meaningful connection with others, while also avoiding the mistakes that undermine it.
