Today on The Biology of Trauma, I share more of my story and why I chose to work in the field of trauma. It has to do with my grandfather and my father’s stories…
- Three principles of trauma work:
- Are you living in a fortress or living in a trail? Flexibility vs. Rigidity Just take the one next best step
- Surviving is not living, and too many people are living life feeling numb, detached, and in full-blown survival mode. In the 21-day Journey, I teach you the skills to address how your body has adapted to survive so you can revive your spirit again. By fighting for your life and doing the work, you can take control of your life again.
