Trauma Healing Learning 20: Southern Exposure

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_28_961t8.jpgOur bodies – yes, our bodies — can help us make better, wiser, more informed decisions. When we are faced with big decisions — like Louise and her family faced in this week’s episode — paying attention to the sensations in our bodies can provide somatic wisdom about what decision to make. In this week’s Trauma Healing Learning, Louise explains how to cultivate that awareness and how to listen to our bodies when making decisions — and cultivating somatic awareness to track how our emotions create physical sensations which can shape our trajectory and sense of direction for the better.

Trauma Healing Learning: The (New) North Star

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_26_8o2d3.jpgA north star isn’t just a goal: it’s a guide. A guide towards something greater than our current scenery, our current circumstances. In trauma, like other times in our lives, we can lose sight of our North Star. When that happens, we can try our best to be graceful and adaptable as we look for guidance and what is the right direction. In this Trauma Healing Learning, Louise shares her own knowledge (and other cultures’ knowledge) about the meaning behind the North Star. She calls on listeners to think about their own desires and begin the process towards reaching (or finding) or rediscovering their North Star.

Trauma Healing Learning: Hot Cocoa

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_24_am74d.jpg

When Archer was too weak to consent due to collapsed lungs and the inability to take in much oxygen, Louise clung to a Youtube video that Archer had made for a school project the year before to hear his voice. Patient voices — not just their literal voices but their opinions and consent— are important to consider in the first place, regardless of their capacity or age as it relates to patient autonomy and trauma healing. In this Trauma Healing Learning, Louise gives listeners and medical providers an expanded view of informed consent. Join Louise as she considers the nuances of the patient voice in medical settings and what happens when a patient is unable to advocate for themselves — whether due to their medical condition or the circumstances of their care. Listen as she explores our capacity to rely on an energy field for guidance for difficult decision Making.

Trauma Healing Learning: Caught in No Man‘s Land

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_22_b755q.jpg

Belief, simple belief in possibilities, is powerful. And it has healing capabilities. In this Trauma Healing Learning, where Louise and her family felt like they were caught in no man’s land, they also chose to believe that they had options — that there was more to be done to care for Archer. Maybe it wouldn’t be at AtlantiCare, but it was there somewhere in the world. Louise mulls over this idea and expands on this wisdom for our own lives. Listen to this Trauma Healing for some ideas about how to not give up on believing.

Trauma Healing Learning: Radical Forgiveness

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_17_br5fn.jpg

Listen to this week’s Trauma Healing Learning for a delicate and impactful discussion about Radical Forgiveness and how it serves us (or not!) on our journey towards trauma healing.

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!
