Individual and Group Inquiry

"Social support is not the same as merely being in the presence of others. The critical issue is reciprocity: being truly heard and seen by the people around us, feeling that we are held in someone else's mind and heart. For our physiology to calm down, heal and grow we need a visceral feeling of safety." Bessel Van der Kolk
