from Peter Levine, In An Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and REstores Goodness

“This shifting evokes one of the most important reconnections to the body’s innate wisdom: the experience of pendulation, the body’s natural, restorative rhythm of contraction and expansion that tells us that whatever is felt is time-limited…that suffering will not last forever. Pendulation carries all living creatures through difficult sensations and emotions. What’s more, it requires no effort; it is wholly innate.” —    Peter Levine, from In an Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness
