Trauma Healing Learning: Moving Towards the Pain

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_15_6a9f4.jpg

Pain is a sensation of the body.  It can be all encompassing. It physically and emotionally can overwhelm us, and often beyond the point of tolerating it. But we have the tools and resources inside ourselves to cope with pain and other unpleasant sensations. In Trauma Healing Learning 15: Moving Towards the Pain, Louise  helps us to understand the brain from past conflicts and injuries and breaks down the concept of somatic awareness.  She leads us in how to pay attention to our bodily sensations as a portal for pain reduction and trauma healing.  Listen to this Trauma Healing Learning if you’re in pain — emotional or physical — for a way to move gently towards it and through it.

Trauma Healing Learning: Low on Options, Full of Community

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_13_a5mcw.jpgWhen a person dies, often a community surrounds the grieving — whether in person, virtually or any other number of ways. In this Trauma Healing Learning, Louise looks at the value of community rituals as they provide needed comfort to those experiencing grief amid times of crisis and loss, and she explores some of the medical research findings linking support and trauma  healing as protection against disease.  She emphasizes the importance of participating in community grief rituals like shivas, wakes and celebrations of life. She details why showing up for both ourselves and others is key to trauma healing. Learn about how other cultures deal with death and gain some wisdom about why these rituals are soothing and healing and their impact on long term health, all in this week’s Trauma Healing Learning.

Trauma Healing Learning: Little Breakthroughs

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_3_8t84m.jpgNeuroscience and psychology concepts like brain chunking can teach us so much about not only trauma healing but also about how our brains work in conflict. In Trauma Healing Learning: Little Breakthroughs, Louise teaches a relational skill to be more effective in navigating conflict and difficult decision making, and to be more healing-centered: reflecting. She draws from her career as a mediator to explain how it works and provides an example of a reflection and brain chunking from the companion episode. And she leaves you inspired with some spiritual reflection at the end of the episode!

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-9wjq2.jpgIn the last episode of Blink of An Eye, Louise reflects on her son Dutch’s response to Archer’s accident and stay in the ICU: To be quiet, to not want to talk about it. In this Trauma Healing Learning: I Don't Want To Talk About It, Louise shows us the research around this response and why it is so common.
