In our work we understand that settlement and integration is a transitional healing process. We liken the process of healing to Uttanasana—Intense Standing Forward Pose— which is a conscious and transitional pose. Our peer support group functions like Uttanasana where we consciously exercise an intense stretch by addressing questions like: What are you holding onto? What do you need to surrender? What needs stretching? What needs work?
