WORKSHOP TWO

The Try
Model

(Trauma Release Model)

The “TRY” Model is like a bridge, on the one side of the bridge is the disconnection from self and on the other side of the bridge is the union of self.

Trauma disconnects us from our mind and our body. It is a shattering experience one encounters when our safety, order, security and rights are under threat. This causes us to feel unsafe, insecure within and outside ourselves, this can lead us to feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, fear, terror and unhappiness.

The body as a way of knowing.

Enter Phase

There are four modes of knowing which are non-verbal, pre-reflective
and conscious, with the potential for understanding experience without distorting it.
Sensing bodily sensation: Through breath, yoga postures and yoga nidra.
Gesturing and movement to express experience: The power of movement allows us to experience our inner being.
Visualising internal dynamics: The use of hypnosis and guided visualisation and meditation.
Sounding specific dynamics and experiences: The use of sound and intonation. – Chakra seed music.

It is a methodology of tracing the various aspects of experience and intentional deeds of the conscious self.

Experience awareness.

Hold Phase

Every experience has a specific relationship to the self or ‘I am’ and
this relationship can be classified into five activities of experience awareness:
Reaction: To the experience if it triggered in me as an instinctive response to a perceived or real threat
Sensing: I am sensing an external event in my constitution (external to the ‘I am’)
Emotion: The inner resonance that encounter stimulated in me
Withdrawal: The movement of the experience, or
Expression: I am speaking/expressing/sounding the experience, reproducing it in action

Encounter/Empowerment – facing fears and being in charge of one’s inner life, being expressive in your own life and circumstances (taking action)

Capturing in Silence what has happened.

Exit Phase

Pratyahara translates directly as “sense withdrawal” and is a concentrated practice of withdrawing our attention from the external environment like a turtle pulling its limbs into its shell.
Atma-vichara (self-inquiry): Create a distinction between Self, conscious awareness and body sensations.
Vairagya (non-attachment): Is the conscious control of our attraction to the external world of sense objects. This detachment allows us to choose what we allow our mind to be drawn towards with the ideal goal of experiencing both sweet and bitter fruits of life with equanimity. Essentially vairagya is a deeper and more subtle practice of “letting go.”
