Healing Trauma- A Pioneering Program for Restoring the Wisdom of Your Body.

412VDF3%2BbwL__SS500_I am currently in a 3 year training program in Healing Trauma with the Human Enrichment foundation. This is wonderful book that I have recommended to many clients to help establish the “Felt Sense”.  “.    Tantra and Embodiment is about being present, being in your body and working with the “felt sense”.  This is a wonderful guide with some very simple yet profound exercises. Restoring the wisdom of the body and learning to listen to it signals is essential for your health and happiness.

Product Description
Researchers have shown that survivors of accidents, disaster, and childhood trauma often endure lifelong symptoms ranging from anxiety and depression to unexplained physical pain, fatigue, illness, and harmful “acting out” behaviors reflecting these painful events. Today, millions in both the bodywork and the psychotherapeutic fields are turning to Peter A. Levine’s breakthrough Somatic Experiencing(tm) methods to effectively overcome these challenges. Now available in paperback for the first time, Healing Trauma offers readers the personal how-to guide for using the theory Dr. Levine first introduced in his highly acclaimed work Waking the Tiger (North Atlantic Books, 1997), including: * How to develop body awareness to “re-negotiate” and heal traumas–rather than relive them * Emergency “first-aid” measures for emotional distress * A 60-minute CD of guided Somatic Experiencing techniques “Trauma is a fact of life,” teaches Peter Levine, “but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence.” Now, with one fully integrated self-healing tool, he shares his essential methods to address unexplained symptoms of trauma at their source–the body–to return us to the natural state we are meant to live in.

Book Description
Are you experiencing physical or emotional symptoms that no one is able to explain? If so, you may be suffering a traumatic reaction to a past event, teaches Dr. Peter A. Levine. On Healing Trauma, this respected therapist and teacher brings you face to face with an effective new treatment not a talking cure, but a deep physiological process for releasing your past traumas. Medical researchers have known for decades that survivors of accidents, disasters, and childhood trauma often endure lifelong symptoms ranging from anxiety and depression to unexplained physical pain. As a young stress researcher at UCBerkeley, Dr. Levine made a remarkable discovery: that all animals, including humans, are born with a natural ability to rebound from these distressing situations. On Healing Trauma, you will learn Dr. Levines four-phase method of somatic healing. You will learn how and where you are storing unresolved distress, how to become more aware of your bodys physiological responses to danger, and specific methods to free yourself from trauma. Now you can learn to address unexplained symptoms at their source your body and return to the natural state you were meant to live in, with Healing Trauma

Body Mind Soul -Intimacy, Vulnerability and Commitment

This is an excerpt from a recent article that was published in the GLT  http://www.gaylesbiantimes.com/?issue=1116 by John R. Ballew, M.S., L.P.C. . I have had the good fortune of working with John and truly admire his gifts as a man and a instructor. Please visit his website and read some of the wonderful articles he has written ove the years.
“An unarmed encounter between two vulnerable individuals” is my favorite definition of intimacy. Most of us understand the “unarmed” part of that equation without too much difficulty. But “vulnerable?” That’s tougher. Especially for men; toughness is associated with masculinity – vulnerability is something we’re taught to avoid.
Vulnerability is a paradox. A friend recently talked to me about how much closer he felt to the person he was dating after getting food poisoning while on a skiing trip. The experience of being cared for while he was weak (and not very attractive!) helped him to genuinely feel the loving words his boyfriend had been speaking for several weeks. He’s not eager to feel that sick again, but he recognized that amid the misery, he received an offering that was very intimate and loving. Full Article

Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) and Somato Emotional Release (SER)

spine

CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:

  • Migraine Headaches
  • Chronic Neck and Back Pain
  • Motor-Coordination Impairments
  • Autism
  • Central Nervous System Disorders
  • Orthopedic Problems
  • Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Scoliosis
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Emotional Difficulties
  • Stress and Tension-Related Problems
  • Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
  • Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
  • Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Post-Surgical Dysfunction

SER is a therapeutic process that uses and expands on the principles of CranioSacral Therapy to help rid the mind and body of the residual effects of trauma. SERI offers applications designed to enhance results using CST and other complementary therapies.

  • Assess and mobilize the Avenue of Expression working through more than 10 different body components.
  • Locate and release Energy Cysts. (stuck energy)
  • Release suppressed emotions that may be inhibiting complete structural releases.
