Season 3: Episode 13: Going Home Part 2

BOE_Google_Slidesb4rnf.jpg

 

The feeling of coming home after you’ve been away at battle is like a warm sensation of solid safety. Coming home is also a reminder of what it is like to be seen, to be known as who you are, and to be reminded of the lives you’ve touched and the lives that touch you back. It can also be a whirlwind of conflicting emotions, as coming home isn’t always stress-free. Join Louise in the second part of her heart-warming, yet heart-breaking, return home and hear from the people who help her achieve solace in a number of different ways. You’ll also experience what an established personal care team can look like, as having one is often crucial to the trauma healing process. Warm hugs, a place to break down, watching a water lily bloom and getting a great haircut are all healing experiences. You'll hear about muscle response testing too, and its role in restoring the body to good health.  Recovering from trauma is a personal journey, and it’s all about what feels right for you. We hope these Blink of an Eye examples grasp you by the hand and lead you down your own path of healing and refortification.

 

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

 

Ellen Webb, a long-time neighbor, friend and “sister,” as Louise describes in the first part of Going Home. Ellen was on a walk at the time of Louise’s arrival to Baltimore, and she offered heartwarming support during what was an emotional return to the Senft family home.

 

Sue Ebert, Louise’s hairdresser and a member of her healing circle. Sue shares her memories of a particularly impactful appointment with Louise, and she also discusses the powerful healing elements of human touch.

 

Dr. Mary Ann Ley, a trained Chiropractor and Nutritional Response Testing practitioner and part of Louise’s healing circle in Baltimore whom she returned to during the intense ICU days. Listen in to Dr. Ley’s companion Trauma Healing Learning interview to learn about the body’s wisdom to let you know what is not good for you by testing the muscles, and to hear first hand accounts of the power of the healer’s intention.

Season 3: Episode 12: Going Home Part 1

BOE_Google_Slides-28xaax.jpg

 

Welcome to Episode 12… and welcome home. This two-part segment of the Blink of an Eye story details the behind-the-scenes fear and insecurity Archer and Louise were facing at the Shepherd Center in more detail than ever before. The foreboding of an overstayed welcome begins to set in, and you’ll experience heartbreaking as well as uplifting wonderings. Most importantly, hear what Louise was unable to share at the time, including texts, work and family stress, anxieties about going home and more. In this episode, Blink of an Eye reaches new heights of truth and authenticity with Louise’s “Personal Journal Notes.” These are entries written in real time by Archer’s beside, usually in the soft, nighttime glow of hospital monitors, which Louise never included in the Archer Blogs for reasons you will hear about. You’ll hear some surprises as well as ways that you might create a homecoming for your friends in crisis.  

 

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

 

Ellen Webb, a long-time neighbor, friend and “sister,” as Louise describes in this first part of Episode 12. Ellen was on a walk at the time of Louise’s arrival to Baltimore, and she offered heartwarming support during what was an emotional return to the Senft family home.

 

Jim Hebert, a great neighbor, a father of three and a dear friend. Jim was a part of the yard brigade that kept the Senft house a beautiful home during Archer’s time in hospital care.
