Have you suffered from trauma or do you know of someone who has?
Would you like to have a better understanding of how the mind, body,
and brain are impacted by trauma?
Trauma effects everyone at some point or on some level within a
lifetime. Finding ways to integrate what the mind, body, and brain has
experienced is the first step to healing, and at reclaiming a life
back. In this class, we will examine how trauma effects the brain, and
walk away with a better understanding at how we can better help
ourselves as well as our loved ones at finding healing and peace from
“Traumatized people chronically feel unsafe inside their bodies: The
past is alive in the form of gnawing interior discomfort. Their bodies
are constantly bombarded by visceral warning signs, and, in an attempt
to control these processes, they often become experts at ignoring
their gut feelings and in numbing awareness of what is played out
inside. They learn to hide from their selves.
We have learned that trauma is not just an event that took place
sometime in the past; it is also the imprint left by that experience
on mind, brain, and body. This imprint has ongoing consequences for
how the human organism manages to survive in the present. Trauma
results in a fundamental reorganization of the way mind and brain
manage perceptions. It changes not only how we think and what we think
about, but also our very capacity to think.”
― Bessel A. van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and
Body in the Healing of Trauma
