I know it is possible to heal from our experiences of feeling disconnected and unworthy. I have.
“A fundamental goal of human development is the emergence of a self-sustaining, self-regulated human being who can live in concert with fellow human beings in a social context. Vital for this healthy development is a relationship with a parent who sees and understands the child’s feelings and can respond with attuned empathy to the child’s emotional cues.” Dr Gabor Mate, When The Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress

Join Lynn Fraser at the Science and Nonduality Conference 2018, San Jose, California
October 28th, Topic: Friends With Your Mind: How To Stop Torturing Yourself With Your Thoughts. The mind is a system of stimulus and response, and our brain literally develops in response to our experiences. One of the foundations of being friends with our own mind is to be able to work effectively with our thoughts, with our responses to our thoughts, and with the energy and sensations in our body that are stimulated by our thoughts. We need to know the essentials of how it works to understand our bodymind, feelings, nervous system and identification as a separate self. Details here
Friends With Our Body Summer Session
8 Sundays Begins July 7th 11am Eastern
Is being friends with your body even possible? We make decisions based on emotional comfort and our need to escape our body. The energy, feelings and sensations in our body can be a mystery and a source of fear. Are these some of the words that come to mind when you think about your body? Disgust. Dread. Fear. Memories of abuse. Betrayal. Out of control. Pain. Contempt. Overwhelm. Too fat. Too thin. Shame. It’s no wonder so many people live in their head. Details
Women’s Healing Trauma Weekly Class
with Lynn Fraser
8 Sundays 1PM Eastern begins July 7
Our feelings and thoughts are not here to hurt us. Pain and tightness can be a signal to attend to ourselves. Learn and practice tools to calm and strengthen your nervous system and to develop resilience and emotional self-regulation. Practices through our time together lead to the direct experience that it is safe to welcome it all. We have effective tools to inquire into the memories and associations from our past. This reduces the drive of our compulsive avoidance strategies and addictions. (Maximum class size 9) Full Details

From the Foreword by Scott Kiloby: “This is the kind of book that I truly love – one that is very simple and direct with easy to understand instructions that one can translate to his or her own experience almost immediately. I invite you to take your time and really notice how Lynn is breaking down experience into its simplest parts and then really look into your experience to verify that she has given you a map to suffering and how to heal it. She is extremely skillful as a facilitator, and has a special set of skills for working with the mind and body around trauma and addiction.”
In 2005, Lynn developed PTSD after an assault. Read more about that here: My Story – PTSD and Recovery
She now helps others heal from trauma and to reconnect with themselves. To see how she understands and works with trauma, watch this clip from an interview Lynn did with renowned trauma expert Dr. Gabor Mate. Lynn’s work in groups and with individuals is based on supporting people to safely reconnect within.
Radical Recovery! Presented by the Kiloby Center
In 2017, Scott Kiloby asked Lynn to organize and moderate a new online summit to be hosted by the Kiloby Center for Recovery. We launched Radical Recovery as an annual summit and monthly interviews. As the Summit moderator, Lynn interviews leading experts and innovators in the field of addition and recovery to get to the roots of what causes addiction and how to support radical recovery for ourselves and others.

Neuroscientists are proving the benefits of meditation. School children are taught meditation to calm their minds and develop emotional resilience. Meditation can be practiced as a science and a spiritual practice. How do we get to a clear, quiet, focus within? The main obstacle for most people is an untrained, chaotic, anxious mind. As we systematically remove the obstacles, there is an ever-expanding awareness of what never changes, what is never harmed, that is always here.
Thousands of people enjoy Lynn’s guided practices on YouTube, the meditation app Insight Timer and, since December 2015, in person at 8AM Eastern in her free daily online guided practice. Click on this Zoom link at the time and join us.

Lynn Fraser writes for the Medium Publication Invisible Illness
Lynn Fraser brings the depth of twenty years experience teaching meditation. She specializes in holding a safe, trusted space for healing trauma in her private online sessions. Lynn lives near family, ocean and forest in Nova Scotia Canada.
She is a senior teacher in the Himalayan Yoga Meditation tradition; and an experienced Facilitator of Scott Kiloby’s Living Inquiries.
“Fast forward 25 years from when I first learned meditation in the early nineties. I see and love myself. I am authentic and connect deeply. My body is relaxed and a known space. Trauma is largely healed and resolved. I am mostly free of reactivity and I have skills to work with thoughts and sensation. I know from experience I can be with whatever is arising in this space and time. I feel, at 65, that I am now an emotionally mature adult.”
“Lynn has experienced a profound recognition of present moment awareness and embodies it naturally. That’s the kind of teacher anyone would want, for if one’s teacher does not have the direct experience of what is being taught, true transformation just cannot happen.” Scott Kiloby
