Meet Lucy—twelve years old, missing her best friend, and just waiting for an adventure to come her way. When Lucy discovers a mysterious package at her front door, she’s certain it’s meant for her. Never mind to whom it’s addressed. She unties the green string and tears open the simple brown paper to reveal a loom—a golden magic loom. The magic loom leads her to a dusty bookcase and through a secret passageway, into an enchanted world. This new world is filled with fantastic creatures, castles, and vast, colorful landscapes. Lucy quickly encounters several challenges that she can only overcome with the help of her loom. She’ll need to build a bridge, distract a giant beast, fly above an entire forest, and rescue a girl trapped in a castle. Lucy will have to use her imagination and a lot of creativity to come up with solutions that will work. She must focus on her mission and never give up, even when things seem impossible. This story rewards kindness and generosity, and emphasizes the importance of friendship and helping others.

In 'The Magic Loom' the author, Heather McClelland, invites adults who survived trauma in their childhood to become more aware of their sensations. She helps them interweave the narratives and wisdom of both body and mind as they safely explore and make meaning of the past and put it behind them. This is a text for therapists primarily, teaching with metaphor and case-study. Therapists will discover why and how weaving the body and mind together in interpersonal narrative style conversations meets the needs that contemporary scientific research is uncovering. It is the author's hope that survivors themselves may find they can identify with the stories of trauma recovery as they unfold and engage with the Magic Loom's conversational style and translation of the languages of therapy and of science. Neuroscientists inform us that unresolved aspects of early trauma become hidden within a person's somatic memory (van der Kolk, 2006). Memories are not cognitively or narratively retrievable because at the time of the original trauma, the hormonal impacts on the traumatised child's brain prevented vital neural signals from reaching the brain's higher, sense-making parts (Perry, 1997; van der Kolk, 2006). The trauma is remembered, not by her rational mind but by her body. Raising a person's awareness of her body means that key threads can be woven together with the full range of narrative therapy approaches that enable her to explore what her mind presents. The body-focused narrative therapist is learning to listen to an added voice and a different suite of narratives. She is helping to make explicit and visible to the survivor what has long remained implicit and hidden. It's as if the person's body gives her back her voice and her mind. Body-focused narrative therapy owes its transformative power to the synthesis of a range of somatic and narrative approaches.
