My teacher, Sean Nicolle, has created an extensive resource for understanding our relationship to pain. It’s available for download as an ebook here. Here is an intro from Sean himself:
“What if we didn’t see our pain as an antagonistic villain, but as a teacher and friend; not as an enemy to be avoided, but a partner in crime? This article provides a map for reshaping our relationship to pain. It is a map providing you reference points within a complex territory. The goal is not that you walk away with some information you can store in your back pocket for trivia night, but that you have the understanding for thinking critically and deeply about pain & injury, for knowing what kinds of questions to ask inside of this territory.” – Sean Nicolle
