Back Cover of Under The Orange Blossoms:

A few of Cindy’s tools for moving towards healing from trauma:
“I would have to say, start with traditional therapy. That is probably the most helpful. And, there’s other things that don’t cost money – journaling. It could be simple things to moving your body when you just move your body just creates hormones, endorphins, that just shift that energy. And it it’s free. I mean, dancing, that’s free. You can just shift that energy. Um, one thing I like about journaling is that you put all your thoughts – It’s like a toxic way zone. You could just put it all on paper. It doesn’t have to be long or lengthy. It could be two sentences every day of like a check in how you’re feeling in the morning, how you’re feeling in the evening and rate your day. It just, it’s very therapeutic. You could just start really quickly, um, breathing exercises. breathing exercises are great. Um, yoga, you don’t need a lot of resources to find healing tools. You have it within you.”
