Joanne Rens, who trained in TRE in 2010/11 is now working on an oil rig in Borneo. She offers TRE to the men every second night and is having great results. With Joanne’s permission we share this wonderful email & photos with you………
I have been in and out of the country and at the moment I am on a project off the Borneo coast. Wherever I go in the world I always run TRE® groups on the oil platforms/ vessels that I work on. This particular project has been amazing as I have a group of 5 -7 people that meet every second night (work permitting) to shake.
TRE has brought amazing calm to top management onboard – VERY noticeable to all. Sleep has improved, mobility increased and less muscles pain after heavy duty work on the deck. It is growing steadily and as people go back home for leave others come and join.
The amazing thing is that with the 22 odd people that I have had in the group sessions (2 women) 5 of these (all men) had emotional sessions in either the first or second session. I didn’t expect it in this environment but also realise that they must feel comfortable enough to allow it.
One of the senior managers onshore sent us 20 yoga mats! I made a joke and said instead of them supporting lung cancer could they perhaps send yoga mats (they send out cigarettes, chocolates and magazines to us every now and again). It is a real gift to have these mats as the floor is pretty hard – but the guys have endured it without complaint.
