I dream about the Trauma-Givers in the late morning just before waking sometimes. I am trying to escape them. These I interpret as archetypal malevolent figures that represent all the pain the world dishes up to us, especially the sensitive souls. A more sophisticated interpretation is that they also give us wisdom and experience as we move through trauma in a mindful, contemplative and active way. Sometimes you and I are the givers of trauma, even by accident.
