SJ Tucker

S. J. Tucker’s music changes lives & gets the good stuff to those who need it, and she’s proud to contribute to the soundtrack of magical life.  A performer well loved by witchy events at home and abroad since 2002, the singer-songwriter came flying out of the Memphis music scene, guitar in hand and voice at the ready, and her feet have hardly hit the ground since.  Whether you found her through solid crowd favorites like...

The Magic of Conflict: Trauma-Informed Conflict Engagement
We all hold deep hurt and trauma, from complex past abuse to historical and genetic trauma, from acute trauma to secondary trauma from our work as caregivers. We in the Pagan community may have trauma specific to our relationships with the spiritual communities of our past or our families. Trauma has many forms and shows up in many ways in our bodies, minds, and souls, from chronic muscle tension and stress/anxiety to deep and abiding malaise.

Trauma can also show up in many ways in the way that we interact with each other, often in ways we do not intend. Those ways may be explosive and violently defensive, or they may be numb as we retract protectively. We may make assumptions based on our past trauma experiences; our reactions may be grounded in emotional flashbacks. In a conflict, this can result in further friction even when we are trying to engage in conflict resolution openly.

With Trauma-Informed Conflict Engagement, we create spaces that acknowledge our trauma stories, that create structure for self-care during conflict engagement, that ensure openings to speak about stress and our emotions, and that respect our dignity. We want to create an environment that fosters open relations and the ability to engage freely and safely about our conflicts.

This discussion will tap into the knowledge of all those present to reach the heart of how we can nurture trauma-aware communities where conflict is addressed and not feared.
