The ability to reflect on our lives is what makes us human, able to construct a moral framework, look for meaning, and make decisions. Louise explores this extraordinary human capacity in today’s Trauma Healing Learning. While some things are beyond our control, we can choose how we respond, making decisions that reduce suffering and keep us rooted in the present. Louise also reflects on the 13th-century Sufi poet Rumi, and his poem that speaks of the self as a house.
