Why this is different than any other training out there...
Go beyond the myths and misunderstandings
Right now, the holistic health world is flooded with myths, assumptions, and myths about trauma.
One assumption is that survival responses - such as freeze - are emotional at the root. The truth is these responses are physiological. They begin as a felt sense in the sensory system, and the mind later creates stories and assigns emotions to these physiological phenomena.
Common myths like these are often projected onto clients by practitioners who do not deeply understand trauma. This causes many clients to feel like failures when the practitioners' approaches do not work. This is a scary place for a person with trauma because these persons already live in a chronic state of feeling helpless and ineffective. To exacerbate these feelings means to exacerbate the symptoms.
Our job as trauma-informed practitioners is to be well-researched, to used known clinically effective approaches, and to face our own shadow-self and traumas. This is where the deepest understanding and ability to effectively support is derived.
This training explores the work of Carl Jung, Bessel van Der Kolk, Peter Levine, Pat Ogden, and numerous other body-centered therapists, health researchers, and social development pioneers.
See trama not as the enemy - but as a portal
Contrary to many healers, teachers, and practitioners out there, we do not believe that it is our job to hunt down, clear, and eradicate trauma symptoms.
Instead, we know - from a deep place of embodiment - that each symptom is a messenger from our innate intelligence system. Each symptom is a portal into an unmet need and drive for a higher sense of agency in the grand scheme of life.
When you learn to approach your clients from this conscious awareness, you aid them in befriending the aspects of themselves that once felt intolerable and shameful.
As your clients build a relationship with the parts of themselves they formerly exiled, a portal into instinct and intuition opens up for them. Through this portal is higher life purpose, a sense of being connected replaces feeling so isolation, and power of high sense perception begins to guide them into a new chapter of their own creation - no longer defined by the past.
It's adaptation - not magic
Many healers, teachers, and practitioners take the aggressive approach of guiding clients into their triggers, and asking them to remain in this place until some assumed release or spontaneous healing takes place. This is unskilled. This overwhelms the nervous system and inhibits proper integration of therapy (this happens all too frequently acupuncture, reiki, yoga, talk therapy, and Ayahuasca). Again, this can exacerbate trauma symptoms and cause further harm to the client.
Creating the container means that you have spent adequate time assisting the client to attune to their adaptive resources as a number one priority. This could take one session, or it could take multiple sessions. It will may also need to be repeated, evolved, and refined to meet the changing needs of clients as they go deeper into the healing process while simultaneously living in the world and needing to respond to daily stressors.
Adaptive resources will vary person-to-person. However, they always exist within the unique felt-sense of the individual.
Holding yourself accountable
So many healers, teacher, practitioners are attempting to serve others from a chronically dysregulated nervous system. We are human, and there will always be the next stressor, emotional release, or layer of trauma that surfaces for healing. As trauma-informed practitioners - it is our responsibility to practice what we preach - every single day.
When we do not create the space and presence for our own "stuff" then we lose the clarity and presence required to safely and effectively support others.
What is your current relationship with self-care and personal accountability? This program is designed to take you to a level of mastery with this. To commit to this program means that you commit to yourself perhaps more devotedly than ever before.
Are you willing to make that leap?
Being a trauma-informed practitioner will require that you repeatedly assist clients with overcoming their own obstacles. To be an embodied practitioner, we must be masterful in overcoming our own.
To successfully complete this program requires a dedication to personal and professional transformation.
