2021 was a transformative year for us. Jeremiah's spiritual awakening in June had a ripple effect, shifting the way we think about think success and forcing us to prioritize what matters most.  We had the most rewarding year of our lives financially and deepened our relationship as a couple. And yes, we did fun things like buy Jeremiah's dream car and install a pool in our backyard. But we also realized that having things doesn't matter much if you're carrying trauma in your body, trying to outrun your pain. If you're measuring yourself against an ideal and never taking the time to BE. On this episode of Destined to Be, we reflect on what we've accomplished in the last 12 months, personally and professionally, explaining why we focused on energy, alignment and slowing down in 2021. We share what we learned about not taking things personally, making decisions from a place of faith and holding space for ourselves, each other and our children. Listen in to understand why we're focused on ‘living in the game' in 2022 and learn how to be happier NOW by measuring your success through the gain, not the gap!  Key Takeaways   Why we focused on energy, alignment and slowing down in 2021 Our biggest personal and professional accomplishments in the last 12 months How Jeremiah's team rallied around him through his spiritual awakening Why you can have everything you want and still be unhappy How we think about not taking it personally when people resist our growth How Jeremiah's beliefs around rest and success changed in 2021 What inspired Jeremiah's focus on ‘living in the game' in 2022 How trauma impacts our bodies and brains—and what to do about it What it looks like to hold space for yourself and other people  Why it's crucial to have a relationship with your numbers (especially in business) What Mallory learned in 2021 about working with her feminine energy  Dan Sullivan's theory of measuring success by the gain vs. the gap Connect with Jeremiah & Mallory Destined to Be Podcast Destined to Be on Instagram Jeremiah on Instagram Mallory on Instagram Level Up Entourage Facebook Group Text VIP to 586-600-8492 Resources Register for Men's Level Up VIP  Dean Graziosi  Adam Grant on Introversion  Jim Fortin's Free Trainings Arete Syndicate The 12 Steps The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk, MD Kyle Depiesse on Destined to Be EP175 Jake Woodard on Masculine and Feminine Energy Entrepreneurial Operating System Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business by Gino Wickman The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Don Miguel Ruiz Strategic Coach Who Not How: The Formula to Achieve Bigger Goals Through Accelerating Teamwork by Dan Sullivan with Dr. Benjamin Hardy Dan Sullivan on Gap vs. Gain

Clive Corry is the founder of Action Trauma, Ltd. A not for profit organisation whose vision is to see a world where people stop hurting themselves and others because of undealt-with negative experiences (trauma). His journey started in 2016, after the death of his wife through illness, where he believes trauma/stress/anxiety may have compromised her immune system.  Since then he's read 100+ books on the topic, founded the not-for-profit and run several world-class conferences right here in Belfast that have attracted 1000's of international visitors and global trauma experts like Gabor Maté, Janina Fisher, Stephen Porges, and Bessel van der Kolk. Along with many others. In today's episode we talk about: Working in the family timber business (JP Corry) during the troubles What trauma actually is and how it's stored in our body The role trauma plays in addiction Why intergenerational trauma affects nearly all of us in Northern Ireland And most importantly, what we can do to start dealing with and healing our own trauma. This is a fascinating conversation with an incredibly passionate, empathetic individual with a huge heart for seeing our nation experience healing on a big-picture and individual level. I hope that you get as much out of it as I did. — Matt P.S.

Interior Integration for Catholics
Trauma: Defining and Understanding the Experience

Interior Integration for Catholics

Summary: In this episode, we gain a deeper understanding of the experience of trauma, the impact of trauma. we clarify definitions of different aspects of trauma, various categories of trauma, the immediate and delayed signs and symptoms of trauma, and the effects of trauma.  Then I share an experiential exercise with you to help you discover potential areas that might be fruitful for future exploration of your own internal experience.   Opening Dramatic Short Brief descriptions of the experience of trauma  “Outside, the sun shines. Inside, there's only darkness. The blackness is hard to describe, as it's more than symptoms. It's a nothing that becomes everything there is. And what one sees is only a fraction of the trauma inflicted.”  ― Justin Ordoñez “My current life, I realized, was constructed around an absence; for all its richness I still felt as if the floors might give way, as if its core were only a covering of leaves, and I would slip through, falling endlessly, never to get my footing.” ― Esi Edugyan, Washington Black “I wish I'd fallen softly. Light and graceful like a feather drifting slowly to the earth on a warm and dreamy summer's day. I wish that I'd landed softly too. But there is nothing soft or graceful about that devastating moment when the worst has come to pass. The unavoidable truth is that it is hard, cold and brutal. All that you know to be true and good in life shatters in an instant. You feel like a delicate pottery bowl violently tossed from your place of rest, watching yourself crash and scatter across the hostile dark earth. The sound is deafening. Time stops. Inside, the quiet ache of shock and heartbreak slowly makes its grip known. They cut deep, these jagged edges of broken sherds. You gasp for air hungrily, yet somehow forget how to breathe.”― Jodi Sky Rogers Introduction We are born into a not only a fallen world, but a traumatized world  We not only share in a fallen human condition, but a traumatized condition.   “No matter what kind of childhood we've had, nobody escapes trauma while growing up.”― Kenny Weiss The Fall goes way back, before the world was even created, to the fall of the Lucifer, the light-bearer, the morning star and his angels -- and then the fallenness entered our world through original sin, the sin of Adam and Eve, and these are the original traumas, the fall of the angels and original sin.   You and I are together in the adventure of this podcast, Interior Integration for Catholics, we are journeying together, and I am thankful to be with you.   I am Dr. Peter Malinoski, clinical psychologist and passionate Catholic and together, We bring the best of psychology and human formation and harmonize it with the perennial truths of the Catholic Faith.  This podcast, Interior Integration for Catholics is part of our broader outreach, Souls and Hearts bringing the best of psychology grounded in a Catholic worldview to you and the rest of the world through our website soulsandhearts.com.   Trauma.  We are just beginning a whole series of episodes on trauma.  You've been asking for this -- so many requests for us to address trauma head on.  It's such a tough topic and such an important topic, and we are taking on the tough and important topics that matter to you. Really important to understand the inner experience of trauma -- so you can recognize it in your own life and recognize it an empathetic and attuned way in others' loves.  Part of loving them.   Today, we're going to get an overview of the best of the secular understandings of trauma.  So much has changed since I entered graduate school in 1993 -- back then there was one seminal text on trauma, Judith Herman's Trauma and Recovery.  Now, especially in the last 10-15 years, there has been an upsurge of new, fresh and much better ways of understanding trauma.   Outline Impact of Trauma   Definitions of terms Definition of  trauma  Definition of Attachment injury  Definition of relational hurt  Definition of adverse experience.  Categories of Trauma  Recognizing Trauma from the Reactions, signs and symptoms.   Discuss commonly accepted effects of trauma  Go over the traumatic effects of what didn't happen, what was missing  Experiential exercise to help you identify areas of your internal experience that are impacted by trauma   Impact of Trauma From the North Dakota Department of Human Services Fact Sheet   • People who have experienced trauma are:◉ 15 times more likely to attempt suicide◉ 4 times more likely to abuse alcohol◉ 4 times more likely to develop a sexually transmitted disease ◉ 4 times more likely to inject drugs◉ 3 times more likely to use antidepressant medication◉ 3 times more likely to be absent from work◉ 3 times more likely to experience depression◉ 3 times more likely to have serious job problems◉ 2.5 times more likely to smoke◉ 2 times more likely to develop chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)◉ 2 times more likely to have serious financial problems 16-minute TED MED talk from How childhood trauma affects health across a lifetime | Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris  September 2014 Definitions of Trauma Lots of confusion   Briere & Scott (2006) Principles of Trauma Therapy: people use the term trauma to refer to  either a traumatic experience or event  the resulting injury or stress,  or the longer-term impacts and consequences  American Psychological Association Website: Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, rape or natural disaster. Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. Problem in emphasizing the emotional aspects. It's much more than that  Misses the overwhelming aspect.   Does get the "response" part right.   Integrated Listening Systems website:  Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual's ability to cope, causes feelings of helplessness, diminishes their sense of self and their ability to feel a full range of emotions and experiences.   DSM-5  PTSD, Acute Stress Disorder.  Not going to address those here, not worth the time. Highly criticized by many professionals for being very limited and behind the curve, not recognizing the nuances and categories of trauma responses.   Attachment Injury  Definition: Dr. Sue Johnson defines an attachment injury as “a feeling of betrayal or abandonment during a critical time of need.” Very relational.   Uniformed Services University Human Performance Resources sheet:  An attachment injury is an emotional wound to an intimate, interdependent relationship. It usually happens after a breach of trust—particularly in a time of need or a moment of loss or transition. Once an attachment injury occurs, it can leave one or both partners feeling betrayed or abandoned. Examples of causes of attachment injuries from John Gottman "What Makes Love Last: How to build trust and avoid betrayal" Conditional Commitment:  You or your partner are one the lookout for someone more attractive, more desirable, someone who is a better soul mate.   A Nonsexual Affair: sometimes emotional affairs - emotional connection in an exclusive relationship with someone else.   Lying: Deception, dishonesty, little white lies.   Forming a Coalition Against the Partner:  Pulling the kids in, trying to isolate the other person.  No longer collaborative.   Absenteeism or Coldness: Not prioritizing each other at a time of need -- distancing instead -- can have a devastating impact. Whether failing to support during highly stressful events or consistently missing opportunities to turn towards each other during the rigors of life, both are destructive.  Withdrawal of Sexual Interest: This can really be wounding.  Sometimes one spouse is ok with this and the other is not.   Disrespect:  quote by John Gottman… “A loving relationship is not about one person having the upper hand – it's about holding hands.” This includes refusing to acknowledge hurting your partner and a lack of willingness to apologize to your partner.  Unfairness: Dishonesty. Lack of balance in housework, lack of collaboration on finances.   Selfishness: When one partner lives mostly in a self-focused way; behaviors driven by self-absorption can be very wearing on relationship.  Breaking Promises:  Repeated disappointments around broken or unfulfilled promises results in disillusionment and undercuts trust between the spouses. The one breaking promises can unwittingly communicate the message, “You don't matter.”   Additional examples from Lana Isaacson abuse (emotional- gaslighting, power and control, economic, verbal, physical, or sexual),  refusal to forgive or accept partner or let go of resentments (includes excessive criticism, moving out of your home and refusing to return, etc.) after your partner has done significant personal and relational growth work and demonstrating change. Relational Hurts  - Lori Epting at GoodTherapy.org Relational Hurt or Attachment Injury? How to Tell the Difference April 5, 2018  Painful experiences in an attachment relationship inflicted by the other person, but that don't lead to rupture of the relationship Still a sense of love and connection between the people  Still trust and mutuality.   Still a capacity for the couple to move forward  Does the other spouse still love and care for you?  Answer:  Yes.   Examples: forgotten anniversaries, insults, or intense arguments.     Adverse Experiences:  Adverse Childhood Experiences Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) cover a wide range of difficult situations that children either directly face or witness while growing up, before they have developed effective coping skills. ACEs can disrupt the normal course of development and the emotional injury can last long into adulthood. The loss of a parent; neglect; emotional, physical, or sexual abuse; and divorce are among the most common types of Adverse Childhood Experiences.   Prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences:  Mental Health Connection of Tarrant County fact sheet -- with studies documenting each statistics.   Four of every 10 children in American say they experienced a physical assault during the past year, with one in 10 receiving an assault-related injury. (2) 2% of all children experienced sexual assault or sexual abuse during the past year, with the rate at nearly 11% for girls aged 14 to 17. (2) Nearly 14% of children repeatedly experienced maltreatment by a caregiver, including nearly 4% who experienced physical abuse. (2) 1 in 4 children was the victim of robbery, vandalism or theft during the previous year. (2) More than 13% of children reported being physically bullied, while more than 1 in 3 said they had been emotionally bullied. (2) 1 in 5 children witnessed violence in their family or the neighborhood during the previous year. (2) In one year, 39% of children between the ages of 12 and 17 reported witnessing violence, 17% reported being a victim of physical assault and 8% reported being the victim of sexual assault. (3) More than 60% of youth age 17 and younger have been exposed to crime, violence and abuse either directly or indirectly. (4 More than 10% of youth age 17 and younger reported five or more exposures to violence. (4) About 10% of children suffered from child maltreatment, were injured in an assault, or witnessed a family member assault another family member. (4) About 25% of youth age 17 and younger were victims of robbery or witnessed a violent act. (4) Nearly half of children and adolescents were assaulted at least once in the past year. (4) Among 536 elementary and middle school children surveyed in an inner city community, 30% had witnessed a stabbing and 26% had witnessed a shooting. (5) Young children exposed to five or more significant adverse experiences in the first three years of childhood face a 76% likelihood of having one or more delays in their language, emotional or brain development. (6) As the number of traumatic events experienced during childhood increases, the risk for the following health problems in adulthood increases: depression; alcoholism; drug abuse; suicide attempts; heart and liver diseases; pregnancy problems; high stress; uncontrollable anger; and family, financial, and job problems. (6) According to the Centers for Disease Control -- root causes of many chronic diseases, most mental illnesses, and most violence.       Physical abuse    Sexual abuse    Verbal abuse    Physical neglect    Emotional neglect    A family member who is depressed or diagnosed with other mental illness    A family member who is addicted to alcohol or another substance    A family member who is in prison    Witnessing a mother being abused    Losing a parent to separation, divorce or death 61% of adults across 25 states experienced oat least one ACE --  Nearly one in six American adults experienced four or more.   Lead to increases in adulthood -- years down the road.   Physical injuries TBI  Fractures  Burns   Mental Health problems Depression  Anxiety  Suicide  PTSD   Maternal Health Unintended pregnancy  Complications in pregnancy  Miscarriage   Infectious Disease HIV  STDs   Chronic disease Cancer  Diabetes   Risky Behaviors Alcohol and Drug abuse  Sexual acting out   Loss of opportunities Education  Occupation  Income   Categories of Trauma Acute vs. Chronic, Causes:  Natural vs. Human, Big T trauma vs. little t trauma, Secondary Trauma, Acknowledged vs. Unacknowledged.   Acute vs. Chronic vs. Complex Trauma Acute Trauma: Psychology Today article Acute trauma reflects intense distress in the immediate aftermath of a one-time event and the reaction is of short duration. Common examples include a car crash, physical or sexual assault, or the sudden death of a loved one.  Chronic Trauma:   can arise from harmful events that are repeated or prolonged. It can develop in response to persistent bullying, neglect, abuse (emotional, physical, or sexual), and domestic violence.  Complex Trauma: can arise from experiencing repeated or multiple traumatic events from which there is no possibility of escape. The sense of being trapped is a feature of the experience. Like other types of trauma, it can undermine a sense of safety in the world and beget hypervigilance, constant (and exhausting!) monitoring of the environment for the possibility of threat.  Big T trauma vs. little t trauma  Trauma here is used to describe the adverse experience Big T Trauma -- Big T Trauma is a reaction to a deeply disturbing, life-threatening event or situation  Powerlessness or helplessness is also a key factor of large ‘T' traumas, Examples of Big T Trauma Violent crime  natural disaster  terrorist attack  sexual assault  Combat  a car or plane accident  Death of a parent for a child   Little T Trauma: Little 't' traumas are described as smaller, more personal distressing events that disrupt our functioning and compromise our capacity to cope. These distressing events are not inherently life or bodily-integrity threatening,Examples of Little T Trauma Interpersonal conflict  Infidelity  Conflict with a boss  Job change  Geographic relocation -- moving to a new part of the country  Romantic breakup  Abrupt or extended relocation  Death of a Pet  Legal trouble  Financial worries or difficulty   Problems -- these describe the event -- as though the event measures the experience.  Not so.  Originally had some support and still do, because of the emphasis on the importance of less obvious events.     Natural vs. Human Causes  Naturally Caused (so called "Acts of God") Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Separated into the four elements Earth, Water, Air and Fire   Earth Earthquakes  Landslides  fallen boulders  Meteorites   Water Floods  Tsunamis  Avalanches  Blizzards   Air Tornadoes  Cyclones  Typhoons  Hurricanes  dust storms  fallen trees   Fire volcanic eruptions  Lightning Strikes  Wildfires   Health physical ailments or diseases  Epidemics  Famines   Human Caused -- Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services  Accidental Acts Train derailment, roofing fall, structural collapse, mountaineering accident, aircraft crash, car accident due to malfunction, mine collapse or fire, radiation leak, crane collapse, gas explosion, electrocution, machinery-related accident, oil spill, maritime accident, accidental gun shooting, and sports-related death.   Intentional Acts arson, terrorism, sexual assault and abuse,(see three episode IIC series on Rape, Incest, Shame and Silence, episodes 40, 43,and 44) homicides or suicides, mob violence or rioting, physical abuse and neglect, stabbing or shooting, warfare, domestic violence, poisoned water supply, human trafficking, school violence, torture, home invasion, bank robbery, genocide, and medical or food tampering, harassment, street violence, and bullying   Actions vs. Omissions e.g. abuse vs. neglect   Secondary Trauma:  Psychology Today Article:  Secondary or vicarious trauma arises from exposure to other people's suffering and can strike those in professions that are called on to respond to injury and mayhem, notably physicians, first responders, and law enforcement. Over time, such individuals are at risk for compassion fatigue, whereby they avoid investing emotionally in other people in an attempt to protect themselves from experiencing distress. Acknowledged vs. unacknowledged trauma Frame of reference -- that just how it was  Defining trauma away -- Just because my Dad was a raging unemployed alcoholic and Mom was stressed out with her job and all the housework and we struggled financially and my parents fought all the time, that wasn't trauma, that was just normal.  I never was hit or nothing.   Not like my classmate Billy.  Billy suffered trauma.  His Dad used to hit him with a golf club and he came to school with bruises.  Now that's trauma.  Or the kids that were sexually abused.  That never happened to me.  I just had a rough childhood, but I've moved on, it's all in the past.   Recognizing Trauma from the Signs and Symptoms  -- So important.   Drawing from many sources here, but Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

This disconnection is automatic and completely out of the person's control.x Amnesia: Often described as "gaps" in memory that can range from minutes to years  Depersonalization: Feeling disconnected from your body or thoughts  Derealization: Feeling disconnected from the world around you  Identity alteration: The sense of being markedly different from another part of yourself  Identity confusion: A sense of confusion about who you really are   we will have a lot more to say about dissociation in future episodes, but for now -- disconnection.   Alexithymia the inability to recognize or describe one's own emotions. -- Can't put my feelings into words.  The experience of trauma can initially defy speech.   “People who suffer from alexithymia tend to feel physically uncomfortable but cannot describe exactly what the problem is. As a result they often have multiple vague and distressing physical complaints that doctors can't diagnose. In addition, they can't figure out for themselves what they're really feeling about any given situation or what makes them feel better or worse. This is the result of numbing, which keeps them from anticipating and responding to the ordinary demands of their bodies in quiet, mindful ways. If you are not aware of what your body needs, you can't take care of it. If you don't feel hunger, you can't nourish yourself. If you mistake anxiety for hunger, you may eat too much. And if you can't feel when you're satiated, you'll keep eating.”  ― Bessel A. van der Kolk  Intrusive memories -- keep coming and coming Reactivation of previous traumatic events -- those from before the most recent trauma Nightmares Confusion, distractions Highly critical of self -- blaming the self, what I could have done better Preoccupation with the event -- all I can think about Denial of the event  “The conflict between the will to deny horrible events and the will to proclaim them aloud is the central dialectic of psychological trauma.” ― Judith Lewis Herman, Trauma and Recovery: The Aftermath of Violence - From Domestic Abuse to Political Terror  Difficulty with decision making Magical thinking that certain behaviors (including avoidance) will protect me against future harm Suicidal ideation, fantasies Physical symptoms:  Quotes “Traumatized people chronically feel unsafe inside their bodies: The past is alive in the form of gnawing interior discomfort. Their bodies are constantly bombarded by visceral warning signs, and, in an attempt to control these processes, they often become expert at ignoring their gut feelings and in numbing awareness of what is played out inside.

It shatters your most basic assumptions about yourself and your world — “Life is good,” “I'm safe,” “People are kind,” “I can trust others,” “The future is likely to be good” — and replaces them with feelings like “The world is dangerous,” “I can't win,” “I can't trust other people,” or “There's no hope.”  ― Mark Goulston MD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder For Dummies     Increased self-confidence (e.g., “If I can survive this, I can survive anything”) Loss of purpose Renewed faith Hopelessness Reestablishing priorities Redefining meaning and importance of life Reworking life's assumptions to accommodate the trauma (e.g., taking a self-defense class to reestablish a sense of safety) Effects of Trauma -- Going beyond the surface level, what is more readily observable in self or others suffering from trauma  Going into survival mode  Necessity of coming out of this alive.  Very primitive, basic responses.  Drive to survive. “We don't learn things that help us to thrive when we are in survival mode.

But because their left brain is not working very well, they may not be aware that they are re-experiencing and reenacting the past - they are just furious, terrified, enraged, ashamed, or frozen.”  ― Bessel Van Der Kolk  Identity issues  Who am I? “I felt as though everything inside me had been obliterated.   However much I tried, however much I wanted to go back to being who I was before, it was impossible--all that was left was an empty husk of my former self.” ― Shiori Itō, Black Box Shame (episodes 37-49) Trauma generates and activates and exacerbates and perpetuates shame.   Generates Shame “Shame is internalized when one is abandoned. Abandonment is the precise term to describe how one loses one's authentic self and ceases to exist psychologically.”  ― John Bradshaw, Healing the Shame that Binds You  Genesis 3   Activates Shame Preexisting, unresolved shame can come up.  A plausible explanation for why the adverse event happened or is happening.   Deep sense of not being loved, not being lovable -- often denied, because it's so painful.   “...one of the hardest things to admit is that we weren't loved when we needed it most. It's a terrible feeling, the pain of not being loved.” She was right. I had been groping for the right words to express that murky feeling of betrayal inside, the horrible hollow ache, and to hear Ruth say it—“the pain of not being loved”—I saw how it pervaded my entire consciousness and was at once the story of my past, present, and future.” ― Alex Michaelides  Decreased capacity for relationships Decreasing vulnerability within the self or with others  Out of touch with so much of ourselves.   Lack of Trust “The words "I love you," used to be enough for me. They used to mean the world to me, today they don't mean shit. Oh you love me? Really? Why? How? When did it start? Why? Give me reasons, show me behaviors that PROVE you love me, or get the fuck out of my way. I am not interested in diamonds and platitudes, I want to know that I GENUINELY matter to you, because I don't have time to waste on pretty lies that are ugly beneath the surface.”  ― Devon J Hall  Desperation Can lead to suicidal impulses.  Episodes 76-80.  Spiritual Effects God image issues -- episodes 23-29.   Unconscious and conscious  Problem of evil.   What didn't happen  Attunement  - Daniel Brown and David Elliott Feeling safe and protected afterward    Feeling seen, heard, known, and understood -- someone else making sense of the adverse experience “Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive. When someone enters the pain and hears the screams healing can begin.”  ― Danielle Bernock, “To survive trauma one must be able to tell a story about it.” ― Natasha Trethewey, Memorial Drive: A Daughter's Memoir   Feeling comforted, soothed, calmed, reassured “Feeling listened to and understood changes our physiology. Being able to articulate a complex feeling and having our feelings recognised lights up our Limbic brain, and creates an ‘ah-ha' moment. In contrast, being met by silence and incomprehension kills the spirit.” ― Bessel van der Kolk     Feeling cherished, treasured, loved, delighted in Feeling that someone had my best interests in mind.   Experiential Exercise -- No-Go Zones.  Not therapy Pencil or pen and paper -- some way to record -- could be your phone.   Safety issues Zone of tolerance  If this doesn't suit you, don't do it.   Can stop at any time.  Take what is helpful to you.  No driving, can stop the recording until you're in a good place for it.   Asking that no part of you overwhelm you.   Not going to open up any traumatic place.  We are focused on delineating where those places are within you.   Going to the lowest place within us.   Really slowing it down Notice what is going on inside you right now.  Can you be curious Can you have a big open heart Can you accept what you find if it's not overwhelming Can you be receptive to new ways of understanding yourself.   Notice the reactions Body Sensations  Emotions  Visual Images  Memories  Inner voice  Thoughts or Beliefs or Assumptions  Impulses  Desires  Fantasies   Any concerns about this so far?  Is it OK?  If not discontinue.  Not the time.  If it's OK, then continue.   Word list -- noticing the reactions to 30 words -- write down any words that you notice reactions to and the reactions if you wish -- body sensations, especially, but also the rest of the list.  Again, we're not trying to explore any areas of trauma, but if you parts are willing, to understand a bit more about your internal world, your inner experience.   School Love Body Not being seen or heard Playground Loneliness Arguing Sickness Alcohol, Drugs Fear Safety Chaos Sex Escape Mom Help Shame Protection Pain Distress Trust Dad Wound Abandonment Abuse Sadness Nothing Guilt Anger Survival Any other words or images or thoughts or anything else in your experience.   Gratitude.     Future Directions -- where we will be zeroing in This episode was bringing to you the conventional secular understandings of trauma.  But there are two area in the secular conceptualizations of trauma that really warrant much deeper exploration.   Physiological or bodily response to trauma -- that's the next episode, episode 89  Not just about memories -- not just about psychology  Trauma involves the whole person. Trauma victims cannot recover until they become familiar with and befriend the sensations in their bodies. Being frightened means that you live in a body that is always on guard. Angry people live in angry bodies. The bodies of child-abuse victims are tense and defensive until they find a way to relax and feel safe. In order to change, people need to become aware of their sensations and the way that their bodies interact with the world around them. Physical self-awareness is the first step in releasing the tyranny of the past. Bessel Van der Kolk   So much happens in our bodies with trauma -- and so much of that is beyond our capacity to control by sheer willpower in the moment.  “PTSD is a whole-body tragedy, an integral human event of enormous proportions with massive repercussions.”  ― Susan Pease Banitt The Body Keeps the Score -- by Bessel Van der Kolk Polyvagal theory -- Steven Porges.  Recovery “We cannot outrun our past trauma. We can't bury it and think that we will be fine. We cannot skip the essential stage of processing, accepting, and doing the hard, yet necessary trauma recovery work. There's a body-mind connection.

2021: what a year it has been! Personally, it was huge. Not only did I grow and birth a baby, but I became a mother of two. Professionally, I was able to do something that, unfortunately, not many business women can do: going on maternity leave for a full three months before starting to slowly ease back into it. Listen for more on how this year has further affirmed two fundamental truths for me + two big things we've got in store for 2022. And here are some of my top recommended films, books, and podcasts that I loved reading, watching, listening to in 2021 that I wanted to share with you: Watch Scenes From A Marriage — Gosh, this series is done really, really well (and I don't say this very often). It shows reverse polarity at play and is almost excruciating to watch. Heartbreaking but so good. See my review of polarity here. Big Little Lies — when I first watched the pilot episode two years ago I was quite disappointed and didn't want to continue as I thought this is all going to be about white rich women bitching about their sad lives. But Khara mentioned it was quite good (and I trust her) so I decided to give it a go and loved it. Especially the unhealthy dynamic between Celeste and Perry. And everything else: the sisterhood, the shame, the trauma. All the stuff that we, women, have to deal with. I even came to love the bitching! ;-) The Line — a documentary that tells the story of U.S. Navy Seals and the allegations against Eddie Gallagher for war crimes. Watch to see masculinity in action as well as the toxic portrayal of it in ugly ways. Promising Young Woman — this movie… Oh god. Grab something strong and alcoholic and enjoy some really good displays of toxic femininity. Read On Feminism & Women: Free Women, Free Men: Sex, Gender, Feminism, by Camille Paglia — a collection of essays from a brilliant mind, a woman who's been called a “feminist that other feminists love to hate,” this is such an intellectually provoking read I would recommend anyone who wants to know more about where modern feminism has gone wrong. For fun: City of Girls: A Novel, by Elizabeth Gilbert — everyone loves a good Liz Gilbert book. This one doesn't disappoint. In the Name of Gucci, by Patricia Gucci — as my interest in fashion is growing and expanding, I absolutely loved this story about Aldo Gucci's life and love told by his only daughter, Patricia. (The House of Gucci, a movie that came out starring Lady Gaga looks quite promising as well.) Listen Here are my top favorite Claimed Podcast episodes from 2021 (and some of the most downloaded ones): Becoming Selfish, Experiencing Great Men and Getting Unstuck from “Little Girl” Energy with Samantha, Angie and Michelle What is Feminine Embodiment and What Does It Have To Do With Attracting Committed Masculine Men? “Where Have All the Good Men Gone?” — My Interview With Elephant Journal About Dating and Relationships With Waylon Lewis In January we will be re-releasing our top 10 most downloaded episodes from 2021 so watch out for that on the Claimed podcast!

Episode 74: Why Trauma Recovery Must Include Somatic Healing with Kaity Rose Holsapple

Light After Trauma

Trauma severs the connection between our brains and our bodies, yet so much of Western culture encourages healing only from the chin up. On this week's episode, Kaity Rose Holsapple, a Somatic Yoga Therapist, explains the many reasons why we cannot fully heal from trauma without addressing the healing within our bodies.   Check out the Light After Trauma website for transcripts, other episodes, Alyssa's guest appearances, and more at: www.lightaftertrauma.com Support the Podcast Kaity's Website:  https://www.hertemplehealing.com/  Transcript Alyssa Scolari [00:23]: Hey everybody, welcome back to another episode of the Light After Trauma podcast. I am your host, Alyssa Scolari, and we've got another awesome guest episode today which I'm so excited for. We have with us Kaitlyn Rose-Holsapple. Now through the journey of healing and Kaity's own PTSD, she channeled and created what's called somatic yoga therapy, which I can't wait to learn all about today, and somatic yoga therapy is an integrative healing art form that gently and effectively alchemizes trauma into soul power. She has walked countless individuals through their journeys of healing, trauma, anxiety and depression from within. Kaity supports her clients and students to connect with the innate wisdom and intuition of their bodies. This wisdom is present in every body and helps you to organically heal and live in integrity with your soul. Kaity firmly believes that you are your own healer. The somatic yoga therapy process offers you tools, support, guidance, and space for alchemizing blockages and trauma into your greatest gifts and superpowers, but at the end of the day, only you hold the magic of your own healing potential, and this magical healing force lives inside your body awaiting reclamation. Alyssa Scolari [01:46]: So I am really looking forward to this conversation and again, I'm just going to thank Kaity for her grace in rescheduling multiple times, so hi Kaity. Thank you for being here and thank you for your patience with me. Kaity Rose Holsapple [01:59]: Absolutely. I am so excited that we are able to connect here and now. Alyssa Scolari [02:05]: Me too, and I was doing a lot of reading on your website and just reading your bio, there's so many of these phrases that pop out to me. So of course the first question that I want to ask you is can you give us a little bit of backstory? What exactly led you to the place that you are now? I know you mentioned in your bio that you have PTSD, so if you wouldn't mind like elaborating a little bit, only what you're comfortable with of course. Kaity Rose Holsapple [02:36]: Totally. So really what brought me ... It was kind of like first being brought into the world of spirituality and yoga and then diving more deeply into psychology and trauma healing from there and what really drew me into especially yoga practices was just how disconnected I was from my body and I went through probably most of my life since a pretty early childhood event that I only just started to remember really recently only have these memories come back in the past couple of months. I realized I just have been dissociated and really out of body for so long in my life and yoga is a practice that really started to bring me back home to being more comfortable in my own skin and feeling actually like one of my first in my body moments that I remember was in a restorative yoga class and it was me just accessing my parasympathetic nervous system state but it was the first time I had done that in probably 14 years and I was in awe and shocked and didn't have really the words or language for it at the time but I was like, "Whoa. Something's really powerful here for me to continue to explore." Kaity Rose Holsapple [03:57]: And so that's really what brought me in and then starting to look deeper and connect more deeply with my body is also what started to really help me unravel some of the early childhood trauma and then trauma from later on in life as well and it's been quite a powerful journey. Alyssa Scolari [04:19]: Yeah. You touched on so many things there, but I'm going to jump right to can you actually give the listeners a little idea on what restorative yoga is because friends, if you have not done restorative yoga, I'm going to need you to drop everything and find a class. Because it is surely the best thing ever. So can you please tell us what that is? Kaity Rose Holsapple [04:50]: Yeah. So usually when we think about yoga, we think of a Vinyasa flow class or core power, very heated, fast, lots of breath work and movements and restorative yoga is really quite the opposite of that. A lot of uses of blankets and pillows and props and putting yourself into these really comfortable positions and shapes where you feel super supported and hopefully are able to drop into again that parasympathetic nervous system state, rest and digest and really a big intention of it is to create almost like a floating feeling in the body, just being really held and relaxed and for certain bodies, it's like, "Yes. So, so, so powerful," and you also now that for especially those of us survivors who have more of the hyper vigilant lean, it can be actually more challenging than going to a Vinyasa yoga class because it's so hard for many people to learn how to really slow down and drop in and let themselves be held. It's like one of the hardest things for our nervous systems to do sometimes and so medicinal, so powerful. Alyssa Scolari [06:06]: Yes, and you make an absolute excellent point, which is restorative yoga requires a lot more stillness and that can be as we know very, very difficult for lots of trauma survivors. So while yes, absolutely, I highly recommend restorative yoga, but take that with a grain of salt because you want to be careful to not overwhelm yourself. Sometimes when we are still, it's hard enough to be still but then sometimes when we are still, things come up and we can be flooded with flashbacks or body memories or what have you. So it's also like a really important point and then ... Alyssa Scolari [06:48]: So the other thing that you had said is that you had felt so disconnected from your body and that is really important because that is what trauma causes us to do. Trauma causes us to disconnect and we are essentially walking around with our heads detached from our bodies and I was listening to a podcast interview that was done with Bessel van der Kolk who is the author of The Body Keeps the Score and one of the leading experts in trauma and he said, which really struck a chord with me, that Western culture is so disembodied, and I felt like that it really struck a chord because I'm like, "Yeah. So much about it is like he said from the chin up. It's talk therapy, it's taking medications, and that's it." But we tend to neglect the somatic experiences that are happening in our body which I think are vital for healing. What are some of your thoughts on that? Kaity Rose Holsapple [08:03]: Yeah. I love that you brought in that piece around culture because that feels ... It's so true, it's in the air that we breathe, it's in the food that we eat. In the most part if you're a Westerner listening to this which I would guess a lot of the audience listening to this is from maybe the United States or more similar cultures to the United States, it's like ... That's just the norm for so many of us and [inaudible 00:08:28] is to actually disassociate and to live more in the realm of kind of the thinking mind rather than the feeling and the being midst and so that's part of why yoga has been so healing and is so healing for so many people because it's the opposite of that, and also all these somatic therapies that we see emerging and having so much power nowadays are helping our Western bodies really, really learn how to access the state of healing. Kaity Rose Holsapple [09:04]: Because healing isn't able to happen on that thinking level of consciousness. It's incompatible with the healing state when we're in our thinking mind. It's just not really ... There's not compatibility there, because healing has to happen in the present moment and thinking automatically is taking you out of the present moment. So dropping into the somatic state is actually dropping into a presence practice that helps you be with what's here and now, and that's the only time healing can happen is in the here and in the now. Alyssa Scolari [09:39]: I love that. It's so important. Kaity Rose Holsapple [09:41]: Yeah. Alyssa Scolari [09:42]: So important. So now how is ... Because you created somatic yoga therapy. Can you describe what exactly is that? How is that different from standard therapy? Or standard yoga I should say? Kaity Rose Holsapple [09:59]: Absolutely. Yeah, so yoga therapy in itself is kind of this emerging field. Not a lot of people have heard of it generally, right? And it's this practice of really modifying different aspects of the yoga tradition, including the asana which is what a lot of us think of when we think about yoga, the different postures and shapes we put our bodies in but there's also like a whole world of other depth there as well. We do pranayama breath work practices, energy practices. There's a whole lot there and it's about really customizing those practices for the individual at hand. So rather than you going to a yoga class where the whole group is taught the same sequence, this is like what's really happening, Alyssa, for you and your body today, and creating a specified practice, yoga, meditation, pranayama, asana, et cetera, that's just 100% completely to support you in regaining balance, and it's really, really beautiful, really, really powerful, can sometimes feel a little bit allopathic from my perspective, a little bit like Westernized in some ways and really a huge effort of bringing this into the hospitals and the medical system. Kaity Rose Holsapple [11:21]: Really beautiful, really powerful, and so with somatic yoga therapy, it includes that aspect of yoga therapy but it's dropping a little bit of the ways that we can sometimes label this is the yoga practice for anxiety or this is what you do for high blood pressure and really tuning into actually what each individual body is guiding and needing which actually can look very, very different, even inside those diagnoses of like ... You might have anxiety, I might have anxiety, but actually what we really need might be completely different on more of those subtle levels. So yeah, it's really accessing the felt sense space, that present moment space of connecting with sensations in the body and then supporting the release of blocked energy so that you can regain balance and heal from within, inside out. Rather than again, what our culture can be so addicted to is I feel like crap or shit, sorry if your podcast doesn't like swears. Alyssa Scolari [12:23]: Oh no, be careful on this podcast. It's fine. Kaity Rose Holsapple [12:25]: Okay, great. I feel like shit. Tell me what to do to make it better. Right? Just I need someone to tell me what I need to do. It's dropping that need for outer authority and really learning how to access your own inner guide, your own inner intuition, and the ability that we all have, which is to know what you need. To know what you need in order to heal. Alyssa Scolari [12:51]: I love that so much. It's important because everybody's healing is so individualized. Like you said, we both might have anxiety but what we might need to heal may be completely different. But I also love that because it's very empowering, and trauma often leaves us feeling disempowered. So it's truly taking your healing into your own hands, and knowing that you already have the answers to the questions that you have and the support that you seek is all within you. Kaity Rose Holsapple [13:27]: Yeah. And this is really hard for someone who's survived trauma, right? Because you ask someone who's been through a traumatic experience even the question of what do you want to do today or what do you like, and sometimes it's so hard to answer those simple questions of making those choices of what do I like, what do I want to do, because we can be really fragmented from that wisdom. Again, that comes back to that sense of being more in our mental body rather than in our physical body which is the realm that can actually tell us what we want, what we like, what feels good, what needs to happen. You can't do that from the mental space. It just can't happen from that brain space. Alyssa Scolari [14:07]: Right, we need to be mind-body connected. We need to be absolutely grounded in our bodies in order to be able to figure that out and answer so many of those questions that ... And those questions are important when it comes to friendships, relationships, just social interactions in general, but even other things like job interviews. One of the first questions that we ask people when we are interviewing them for a position is, "Tell me about yourself." But when you have a traumatized individual who has been walking around just in the mental space and has really done no work somatically or in their bodies and is disconnected, how can we expect them to answer that question well? So this is so important for all facets of functioning I think. Kaity Rose Holsapple [14:55]: Mm-hmm [affirmative]. Yeah, well that really points to just how connected every single area of our life is. We cannot compartmentalize things in the way again that our culture has really trained us to do for so long. It's like, "I'm going to have my work life here and then my romantic life and then here's my friend life," and really it's just like how you show up in these different areas, it's all so, so connected with your wiring, with your nervous system and it's really powerful to start really looking and doing the work around and in these different realms. Alyssa Scolari [15:34]: Yes. It's incredible. It's so powerful. Now you mentioned ... I cannot remember if this was the exact phrase that you used, but something ... You said something like ... Was it blocked energies? Kaity Rose Holsapple [15:48]: Yep. Alyssa Scolari [15:50]: Can you explain, can you elaborate on what that is? Kaity Rose Holsapple [15:55]: Yes. Alyssa Scolari [15:56]: Because I feel like that's very important. Kaity Rose Holsapple [15:58]: So let's talk about this because it is really important. This is like totally how I see things now, it's like ... Blocked energies, you can think of trauma as like this spectrum with most severe being like actual diagnosis, like PTSD, CPTSD and just like the very intense symptoms that you think of with trauma, like flashbacks and very, very obvious forms of dissociation, depersonalization, those sort of aspects, right? And then we have all of these other different forms of trauma that show up in really, really subtle and sometimes a little insidious forms and I would say the spectrum is the spectrum of blocked energy. Where trauma and blocked energy can really be synonymously used because what is happening when there's a trauma in the system, in your energy body, there becomes kind of a knot that happens where the energy ties itself up and is no longer flowing, so there is stagnation that happens, and when that happens, of course you're cut off from your own energy flow, so there's not as much feeling of aliveness, sensation even. This can create numbness, a cutting off from different areas of the body. Kaity Rose Holsapple [17:19]: Also just feeling like really lethargic, really tired, and so looking at and thinking of trauma as not just something that happens in the physical body but actually something that's really affecting the energetics, and a great way of looking at this is also ... If we come back to what happens in the breath when there's then trauma and how our breath physiologically starts to change because the breath is kind of the gateway between the physical and the energetic body because there's a connection here between we can have conscious control of our breath if we just all take a deep breath right here and now, you can choose to consciously do that, and you know that you're always going to be breathing. Even if you're not telling yourself to, right? So there's this really deep connection between the breath, which in yoga is really deeply connected with the energy body, with their prana, life force, and the subconscious mind which is the realm that stores traumas and so we just think about in a traumatic experience, for example something shocking happens and you gasp and your breath is kind of stuck up here and then that's kind of how the energy can start to get stuck and all of a sudden, or actually over quite a period of time, we develop patterns such as just chest breathing and no longer have access to a deep diaphragmatic breath anymore. Kaity Rose Holsapple [18:47]: And so that's kind of a more physiological way we can start to see the energy body being really affected is just by looking at changes that happen in breath and breathing, but also it's happening in this really subtle way that's not perceptible really to the human eye but is really connected with felt sense, sensations, and what you notice as sensation in your body. And so starting to work with somatics is also taking you deep into the realm of energetics and the energy body in a pretty powerful, really, really powerful way. Alyssa Scolari [19:21]: Yeah. Yeah, so this process basically goes hand and hand with energy work. Because I hear this phrase so often, right? Energy work, energy work, and I feel like it's now becoming more and more linked to trauma. It's all energy. Alyssa Scolari [19:37]: Now I want to take this one step further and ask you your thoughts on when we have chronic energy blocks, you named some of the ways in which that can show up, but ... And I feel like I already know the answer to this because you also ... I heard the podcast interview that you had done about the link between rosacea and trauma. So is it your opinion or your belief that when these energy blocks become chronic and constant, they can lead into more serious illnesses, autoimmune diseases, things like that? Kaity Rose Holsapple [20:21]: Mm-hmm [affirmative]. Yes. Yeah, so it's really fascinating to look at this. In yoga, we have something called the kosha model which is talking about the different bodies. Like we have our physical body, we have this physical body that is blood, muscle, bone, skin, and then there are other bodies as well, like one of which is the breath body which holds your prana, your energy, and then you also have your mind, the body of your mind which is composed of your thoughts and your emotions and you also have the body of your beliefs and your belief system which you may or may not know, those of you listening, like some of those are not always what we would consciously want and choose to believe. We have beliefs that are really, really rooted in our childhood, especially the first seven years of our lives and our culture and things that we might not actually really want to believe in the subconscious mind are beliefs stored up, right? And so all of these bodies are really always intermingling and influencing one another. Kaity Rose Holsapple [21:28]: So an example of this is I can have this belief, I might not even know I have it. I could have this belief let's say for example around what a body is supposed to look like, what a beautiful female body is supposed to look like. And it might not be consciously what I think beauty is, but I have this belief that I'm only beautiful if I am only 120 pounds. It's like something that doesn't even necessarily have to make a lot of cognitive sense, but we have these. So let's say - Alyssa Scolari [22:01]: Right, it's not something that has to be backed by science. It's just if that's your belief, it's your belief. Kaity Rose Holsapple [22:06]: Right yeah. And you might not even really know it's there, which I think is also something really, really interesting. Because these beliefs that we have really run our lives in unconscious ways until we start to really see them. That's one of the definitions of yoga is bringing the unconscious to your consciousness, and once things become conscious, that's healing in itself, right? Just being able to see that okay, this is here, and it's not exactly in line with what my soul really believes, but it's here. This is part of my conditioning, right? Kaity Rose Holsapple [22:39]: So we have this belief, let's use the one that I gave an example on, which is like I'm only beautiful if I am 120 pounds or something kind of specific and based around your body like that. And then connected with that belief, there's all of the thoughts and emotions that we have, which might be looking at yourself in the mirror and feeling shame. It might be those negative thoughts that cycle in your head, all the ways that you tell yourself you're not good enough, you're not beautiful enough. A lot of I feel more New Age spirituality works in this level of affirmation, where we just start to tell ourselves, "I am beautiful. I love myself." But again, it stays in that mental level, so it's never really becoming true and real in your body, in your bones. Alyssa Scolari [23:30]: Right, we're never really absorbing it. Kaity Rose Holsapple [23:34]: Yeah. Exactly, even though those affirmations can feel really helpful in the moment, it's not actually getting to the root of what's really there. Alyssa Scolari [23:42]: Thank you, [inaudible 00:23:43], I am a little bit ... I'm not anti-affirmations, like yes please hype yourself up, but I am just like, "It's not enough." And I like that you're saying that because when we sort of say things like, "Well you just need to do your affirmations," I think it takes away from it makes people feel like, "Oh, what's wrong with me? Like I'm doing my affirmations, I literally have you are beautiful on my mirror and I say it every time when I wake up," and it's like it's not enough because you're not fully integrating it. Like it's just in your brain and then it kind of leaves. So I love that you said that, but you go on. I didn't mean to totally interrupt. Kaity Rose Holsapple [24:24]: No, I love that too, and it's like also ... What about all of the parts inside of you that don't believe that and don't feel that way and now you're just kind of overriding those and not really attending to what's really there, like what's the trauma there that those parts are really holding? Because there's a ... Even though it feels shitty, there's a wisdom to those thoughts. Like there's something in there that's actually really important to extract and to move towards, I really believe that. So we have this level of belief, then we have this level of thought and emotion that can manifest from our beliefs, right? So the beliefs are very, very deep, very, very unconscious, and then they can start to manifest into thoughts and into emotion which directly affects the energetics of the body. Think of the last time you had a negative thought about yourself, like, "I look ugly," or whatever that thought is for you, it's going to change how you're breathing. It changes your breath patterns. Kaity Rose Holsapple [25:23]: So that's again a more obvious way that the energy starts to change. But it's also going to change the posture, like how you hold yourself, which again is going to affect the flow of chi, the flow of energy through the body. It's going to affect the felt sense, you might have this heavy, dropped feeling in your belly which again that's a way the energy body is communicating to you is through sensations. And then eventually years of me holding my body in this slumped position of this energy communicating in this way and me not actually being able to discharge it, being able to let it flow through me, being able to affirm and acknowledge it but in a way that allows it to fully, fully complete what it's trying to do rather than what we commonly do is, "I don't like this, eew, icky, I'm going to move away from it and try to shove it down." Right? Alyssa Scolari [26:20]: Exactly. I'm going to [inaudible 00:26:22]. Yeah. Kaity Rose Holsapple [26:23]: Yeah, yeah. It's what we are commonly doing. And again, this might not be conscious. You might know consciously that that's not super great for you and we still do it and it's just like a habit. So after long periods of time of these avoidance patterns, the energy gets stuck in these different regions and can manifest as skin issues, digestive issues, chronic pain. Pain is hugely connected with this. Anyone who has chronic low back pain, I've struggled a lot with jaw pain. Like this is just so rooted and connected here, and then of course other forms of disease and imbalance start to form as well. So that's kind of like the pathway of how this can happen is starting with for example a traumatic experience that imprints this really deep belief. That belief starts to change how we think and how we feel inside, which influences the sensations and the breath which influences our body. Alyssa Scolari [27:25]: Okay. Okay. That makes a lot of sense to me. Yeah, and I 100% believe that. I was just like ... I know at least for the work that I do, every single person who comes into my office, it's so ... I love the somatic work. Like it is so important because yeah, I do believe that so much pain, chronic pain, back pain. Like I had a lot of jaw pain too. I actually went to the dentist a few months back and the dentist was like, "Do you grind your teeth?" And I was like, "No." And I was so detached from my body, I was very stressed out, we had just moved, and I couldn't even feel. I was so out of touch with my body. In the six months between my dentist appointments, I had been grinding my teeth so much that I actually have permanent damage and I didn't even know but the second that he said something to me, I was sitting in his chair, had not even left the office yet, I felt all the pain and all the tension in my jaw. And I'm like, "Wow." Alyssa Scolari [28:41]: So I think that's just like a great example of how disembodied we can become without even truly knowing it, which is why this information and this practice I think has to be very, very intentional, all the time. Not just when you're feeling extra down that day. Would you agree with that? Kaity Rose Holsapple [29:02]: Yeah. Absolutely, and a huge part of the somatic yoga therapy practice is building relationship and awareness of your body. Even just ... If you're wanting to get started with more of this work, doing a daily body scan practice where you're just making contact with all of the different areas of the body, that's really, really helpful for this part of the nervous system that ... Like your story, not even realizing how much tension you hold in your jaw, it's like ... There's a reason the nervous system doesn't want to go there and it's because maybe there's something there that feels a little bit like scary or too much or it's holding onto something, right? And so there are reasons that we check out from these different areas of the body, even ones that are causing us pain and oftentimes that quality of dissociating from different body regions is really connected with the pain receptors and they get louder and louder so that we start to listen and hear what they're really trying to say. So if someone who has chronic pain comes to me, I know that there's often also been chronic numbness before that pain even started. Alyssa Scolari [30:14]: Yes. Yes. You put that so beautifully. Now you also mentioned this concept, soul power. What does that mean? Like can you explain that? I love it, like soul power, yes, but what exactly does that mean? Kaity Rose Holsapple [30:34]: Yeah. That is you living in alignment with the strength and the truth and the energy that only comes from the space of your soul. So this is beyond any trauma that you have experienced, this is your essence that is untouchable, can't get sick, can't die, lives on forever. This is the part of you that is always 100% pure, sparkly, bright. Like it's your youness, everybody's soul is completely like a unique expression. I like to think of people's different souls as really connected with different plants or different spaces in nature that have ... There's different qualities to them, right? Like someone might have a very waterfall, sweet, nourishing, grounded soul. Someone might have more of a fiery quality in them, and so it's unique, it's connected with your personality, but it's beyond that and trauma severs your connection with that. Severs your ability for your soul, the energy gets blocked, and then that can no longer flow in your body and so what often happens for traumatized individuals, it's not that your soul ever goes anywhere. It's not that you lose it, though that's something that we feel right? If you've ever had that sense of soul searching or really deep longing to feel like yourself again, like that's what you are longing for. Kaity Rose Holsapple [32:03]: What happens with trauma is that the soul can become displaced from the body and it kind of starts to just hover outside of the body or outside of the energy field because trauma is so connected with death experiences or feeling like, "Oh my god, I am going to die. I think I'm going to die here." It doesn't matter what type of trauma it was, there's some sort of fear for your life that happens and just like in death, the soul leaves the body. So you might not actually have died, you might not have actually died, but some processes and parts of you think that maybe you had or you're about to or it's going to happen and in order to protect this space inside of you that is the most powerful, beautiful and whole aspect of yourself, it's an act of protection that gets kind of pushed away. There's a lot of different reasons for that. Kaity Rose Holsapple [32:56]: It might feel like it's really scary to be my full soulful self. It might feel like too intense in some ways and so the soul becomes kind of disconnected or dissociated. We build up walls and then forget that it's even actually really there but a huge part of the somatic yoga therapy process is detangling these energetic blocks so that the energy can start to move more freely in the body, discharging energy that's just not yours. Like it's not really in alignment with you and who you are, it's heavy, it's stagnant, it's like ... Maybe it belongs to past versions of yourself, but it's not your present moment's energy, and then when there's more of that space and flow inside of you, the soul gets to come back home, and all of a sudden, you feel like, "Wow. I'm having these moments where I really feel like me. I really feel alive, I really feel like myself." Kaity Rose Holsapple [33:51]: And that is the process of alchemizing trauma into soul power and bringing your soul back [inaudible 00:33:59] in an embodied way where you don't have to meditate, which meditation can actually be kind of a way of dissociating a lot of the time. When we meditate, we meditate to access that soul space. In order to access that sense of feeling one with the universe, whatever language you use, but through this process, that becomes just how you live your life. You feel connected with that space and you don't have to go anywhere in order to do that. It just becomes woven into your embodied experience. Alyssa Scolari [34:31]: Yeah. This is incredible. I'm learning so much, so I have to ask, so the somatic yoga therapy. Is that specifically a different type of training or is it that you became certified in yoga or yoga or yoga therapy and then sort of developed your somatic yoga therapy? How did that work? Kaity Rose Holsapple [34:57]: Yes, yeah. Yeah, so I did undergo my yoga therapy training, and during that process, had this pretty ... Actually probably at the end of this process, had a really intense traumatic experience, a sexual trauma with a former colleague, a former friend of mine and it wasn't like the first time I had been sexually violated by any means, but it was the first conscious time that I had where I was really, really conscious and aware of what was happening and so that really launched me into this journey of healing PTSD which all of that experience very much triggered my early childhood stuff that I had not really ... Kaity Rose Holsapple [35:37]: I hadn't had the resources or tools to look at up until that point, and so that experience really launched me, even though I was already working with trauma, from this more allopathic or yoga therapy lens, I've been working in that way, this launched me deeper into the world and realm of somatics because that was what was working for me and that was what was healing me. So somatic yoga therapy really came from that process of me doing my own healing journey and there are different forms of somatic yoga therapies that I have had experience with from somatic experiencing to sensory motor to Hakomi and I think they're all so beautiful and so powerful, and for me, bringing the yoga therapy piece in was like the missing link there and it's just what my body was naturally doing because I am such a spiritually inclined person and I really believe that that ... Like your soul is your greatest resource for healing. That's the one in you who can digest fricking anything that's happened. No matter how heavy it is, that's the part of you that can handle it. No other parts are able to be with the traumas in that same way and so yeah. Kaity Rose Holsapple [36:57]: That's really where this work was born from is just my own body started to create it and I was already working with clients and so I just started naturally bringing in what was arising and unfolding for me and it was having such great results that I just continued and now I'm training others in this process of somatic yoga therapy. I have a whole yearlong training that I do for people to connect with this work more deeply and learn how to weave into their healing modalities, whatever it is that they're doing. Whether that's yoga therapy, yoga teaching, psychotherapy, massage therapy, it really is so complementary to so many different healing modalities and that's what I'm doing now is training others to help get this work out there. Alyssa Scolari [37:45]: That is amazing. So that's ... I mean one, thank you very much for sharing and for being so vulnerable because it's like that is ultimately, and while we never wish trauma of any nature on anyone, it's like that catapulted you into now being this driving force for helping, now you're training people who can then go on to help other people and that is so empowering. So empowering. So you are ... You're training other people and are you also working with people one-on-one, hosting retreats? What else is there to that? Kaity Rose Holsapple [38:29]: Yeah, so I do work with people one-on-one and do somatic yoga therapy work for helping my clients digest trauma into more soul power and also access deeper states of pleasure and purpose and meaning in their lives after a traumatic experience because that can feel so severed. Definitely have a draw and attract a lot of women who have survived sexual traumas and want to start really metabolizing those so that they can feel more empowered in their sexuality again, more connected with their sexuality and with their essential self because that is so important for so many women and so disconnected, just like we talked about you with the jaws, like we can think of the same area sexually and there's a lot of numbness, there's a lot of pain, there's a lot of shutdown. So I do work one-on-one with people in that region, in that area, and then yeah, I run retreats and workshops and have a lot of different free resources too on my website that I would invite any listeners who kind of feels connected with this work to check that out. There is a free inner sanctuary practice which is a whole I think 45 minute practice where I guide you through some of the foundations of what we're doing in somatic yoga therapy and more of just like you get to experience it within, inside your own self, so that's on my website. Alyssa Scolari [40:03]: And your website is hertemplehealing.com, right? Kaity Rose Holsapple [40:08]: Yes. Yep. You got it. Alyssa Scolari [40:10]: Okay. I got it. Fantastic. So for the listeners out there, you can just go ahead and you know what to do. Go right to the show notes and you will find the link there. Strongly encourage you to check that out. I will definitely be utilizing all of the resources on there because I love this topic and I love this stuff and I am very passionate about it. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise.

Christmas In Isaiah: Longing for the City of God

All Peoples Church

Play Episode Listen Later Dec 19, 2021


Isaiah 65:17-25 Pastor Tenneson Longing for the City of God Will Help Us Get There Intro We have had a sweet time in the book of Isaiah hearing about Jesus from different passages. We heard two sermons about the birth of a promised child who would set the world right. Then, last week, Daniel preached a sermon about how this child, now an adult, would act to rescue his people through the shedding of his own blood. So far we have the identity of the king, Jesus. We know who his people are: the one's who trust in the king and his shed blood. What's missing is the place. A kingdom consists of a king, his people, and the place where they live. We hear many sermons about Jesus and about how we relate to him (which is great!), yet we hear too few sermons about the place Jesus opens for us by his death and resurrection. We get to hear about this place this morning. Unfortunately, many of us probably don't think of heaven or the after life often. If we do, we might think it sounds boring or even scary. We might imagine ourselves floating on the clouds or trapped in a never ending worship service. How sad that we tend to think this way about the place God has prepared for us. Do you want to have a different perspective than that? Do you think God wants you to have a different perspective than that? Then let's dive into his word and see what it says: Revelation Isaiah 65:17 NIV 17 “See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. Right before our verses in this chapter, God had just declared that his people would receive great fullness and joy from him while his enemies would receive pain and judgment. In our passage, God is giving the reason for what came before. These verses explain why his people “eat…drink…rejoice… and sing for gladness of heart” (Isa 65:13-14). Why is this the case? Because, God said, “Behold, I create a new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind.” That sounds pretty good, doesn't it? Let's talk more about what it means. When Jesus returns, God will will create the world all afresh again: he says, “I will create a new heavens and a new earth.” This language takes us back to the first words in the Bible, Gen 1:1 Genesis 1:1 NIV 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The heavens and the earth describe the upper and lower limits of creation, so what should come into mind is the sky above and the earth beneath and everything in between, a whole world. To create a “new heavens and a new earth” is to create a whole new creation. This includes everything we see, touch, and feel except made new again without any of the old sin and death that our first parents brought into God's good creation. Before we go any further, we need to have an expectation adjustment: the final state of God's people will not be disembodied spirits far, far away. It's true that after we leave this Earth and before Jesus returns, we will live with God as spirits without bodies. Yet, that's only temporary and not God's ultimate plan. Rather, when Jesus comes back, God will create this brand new creation, give us new bodies, and we will live with him in a world much like this one, yet without sickness, relational brokenness, or anything that brings us sorrow. This is what God means when he says, “I will create a new heavens and a new earth.” God's renewal of us and this place will be so complete that he can promise, “The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.” What an amazing hope for us, especially for those of us who feel trapped by the pain and shame of the past. This doesn't mean we won't have any recollection of the things that happened in this life, but that painful memories won't continue to harm or sadden us any longer. I am aware that there are people who have been traumatized in this room. There are probably people in this room who have traumatized other people and you struggle to get over that shame. Physiologically, we now know that even if you forget about your trauma consciously, you often carry it around in your body and it manifests in physical symptoms like head aches, body pain, and insomnia.[1] Other traumatized people will think repeatedly or compulsively about their trauma (many of us have harm and pain in our past that is like this that we compulsively think about). Not in God's new creation. He will so completely renew and deliver his people “the former things will not be remembered nor will they come to mind.” These verses would have brought such sweet relief to God's people who in a few generations would have experienced unimaginable pain. The Babylonian armies will besiege and overthrow the city of Jerusalem. A siege is the worst kind of ancient warfare. First, the besieged city suffers hunger and starvation (during this time some people would even eat other people they were so hungry). Then the army breaks in and unrestrained bloodletting follows. Some of the first readers of this book would have known the meaning of trauma as they sat in Babylonian captivity. The words we are about to read about a restored Jerusalem would have been so precious to those who had seen the worst evils imaginable committed in it.[2] And if you are here today wondering if you will ever fully heal from a sin done against you or from a horrible sin you committed against another. Here is what God's word says to you who are trusting in Jesus, Isaiah 65:17 NIV 17 “See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. As we go further into this prophecy, God's message keeps getting better, Isaiah 65:18–19 NIV 18 But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. 19 I will rejoice over Jerusalem and take delight in my people; the sound of weeping and of crying will be heard in it no more. As the Hebrew Scriptures often do, they repeat themselves to give us a fuller image of what they are communicating. God is going to give us another image to fill out our understanding of his new creation. “I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy.” God says both Jerusalem and its people will be happy: a happy city with happy people! As I mentioned before, this will soon be a ruin and filled with mourning and weeping. What a comforting image to those whose memories of Jerusalem were only pain and death to hear that the new creation God will create will be as their beloved city but completely made right. When God sets the world right, he will heal even your worst pain and sorrow. We should not think of the new creation as some kind of disembodied realm where we float around with harps, but as concrete as life in a city except everything is set right. There's a theme that runs throughout the Bible of the city of God, that is, the society and culture God is building in his people and will fully bring into being when Jesus comes back. Another word for this city of God that Jesus will build when he comes back is “the New Jerusalem.” It contrasts the city of man which characterizes our current society and world. Sinful people build the city of man on the value of personal gratification at the expense of others. The city of God rests on the foundation of self-sacrifice for the good of others. That's why in this passage when God talks about his new creation, he calls it “Jerusalem.” It will be as tangible, as concrete as a city made right. Just as a city made right should have encouraged these sorrowful Jews in captivity, so it should bring comfort to us as we experience sin and brokenness in our city around us. More than any time in recent history, we here in Minneapolis are in a position to appreciate the hope of living in the kingdom of God. No one in this room would deny that they have felt sorrow over the things that have unfolded here. The brokenness of Minneapolis and her people show that we are not yet in the city of God, we still live in the city of man. Yet, this disappointment with our world should serves a purpose. Our discontent should fuel a deep longing to live in the city of God. Our hearts were made for and desire a city where, as Isaiah puts it, “the sound of weeping and of crying will be heard in it no more.” I want you to pause and imagine Minneapolis for a moment, except... there is no homelessness or joblessness there is no mental illness or drug addiction there is no racism, segregated neighborhoods, or political division there is no more car-jacking or shootings that kill little children. there is no more police brutality or riots. no more sex trafficking or abortion Church families where all kinds of people of different backgrounds come together to worship Jesus fill our city. Families and singles come together to recreate and there's not a single lonely person. Would any of you care to move to this city? The crazy thing this text is saying is that you will. That's what God means when he says, Isaiah 65:18–19 NIV 18 But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. 19 I will rejoice over Jerusalem and take delight in my people; the sound of weeping and of crying will be heard in it no more. You will get to be the happy people of God living in the city of joy. None of the things that break your heart will ever happen again and you will get to be with Jesus. We will get to say along with Sam from the Return of the King after he finds out that his friends survived and they had defeated their great enemy, “will everything sad come untrue?”[3] And amazingly, in Jesus, yes it certainly will. Now, the Lord is going to provide a handful of images that will further capture what life will be like in the city he will create: Isaiah 65:20 NIV 20 “Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; the one who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere child; the one who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed. In the ancient world, infant mortality was a common occurrence. Though we have sadly lost some children to miscarriage, by God's grace, we haven't lost any of the babies that have been born in our church community. However, this would have been far different in Isaiah's day. Infant mortality would have been a consistent reminder of the curse of death. This reminder of death will vanish in God's new city because sin and death will vanish. Isaiah also says someone dying at 100 years old will be considered a “young child.” What a sweet picture that there will be no more premature or unexpected death. It always feels like a gut shot when someone you know dies, even if you were expecting it. Death is so unnatural that our minds always struggle to comprehend what even happened. One more sweet detail about this city: no more gut shots, no more grief, no more trying to comprehend and accept death. There will be no more comprehending death because there will be no more death. These images are not suggesting that there will be death in this city (as that would contradict other parts of Isaiah that say there will be no more death at all). Instead, they are images that would connect to the imaginations of the original hearers in concrete ways. These are imaginative ways of saying, as one author says, “over the whole of life, the power of death will be gone.”[4] What more do we learn about this city? Isaiah 65:21–23 NIV 21 They will build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. 22 No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat. For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people; my chosen ones will long enjoy the work of their hands. 23 They will not labor in vain, nor will they bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the LORD, they and their descendants with them. It seems as if the New Jerusalem is a simple place. What will be there? Houses, gardens, people, good food. It says, No longer will we build houses and others live in them,” that is, there will be no enemies or hostility. “As for the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people.” It will go on for a really, really long time. “They will not labor in vain, nor will they bear children doomed to misfortune.” No one will ever have to worry that you'll lose something you worked for or your children will have to face hard things in life. It sounds like the ultimate family or friends gathering in a warm house with warm people and warm food. Perhaps you have had one of those evenings you just wish would never end. You will get one that never ends, child of God, and it will be far better than any you've ever experienced here. The descriptions of heaven are far different than our imagination of floating in the sky in an unending worship service. Instead, the Bible paints a picture for us of a new creation, filled with all of the good things God made for us to enjoy with our bodies and without any of the things that cause pain and harm. And still, there is something far, far better than what Isaiah just taught, Isaiah 65:24 NIV 24 Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear. Can you imagine if you were praying one morning in your room, telling God you loved him and asking him for help, and suddenly Jesus himself was standing beside you, answering you. Would you want that? Well, you'll get that in the city of God. You will get to have perfect intimacy with Jesus. He won't ever seem far off again, and you won't ever close yourself off from him again. In the city of God, you will have perfect relationship with God all the time. Then comes our last verse, Isaiah 65:25 NIV 25 The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, and dust will be the serpent's food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,” says the LORD. There's a saying that goes, “nature is red in tooth and claw.” It refers to the constant violence and death that marks the animal kingdom, which points to the sin and death in us. God's restoration of the creation will be so complete even the animals will live at peace with one another. The wolf (the predator) and the lamb (its prey) will feast beside one another. The lion (a terrifying hunter) will eat straw instead of animals. A serpent (a killer of men and animals, dating all the way back to the garden) will only eat dust and harm no more.[5] God says, “they will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,” a phrase that takes us back to Eden, which God had likely situated on a mountain. The New Jerusalem will be a new garden of Eden where we will enjoy all the same delights and provisions from God. Church, as I mentioned at the beginning of the sermon, understanding these things about the place God is preparing for us is essential for our lives in this broken world. What we believe about the future shapes how we live now[6]. The longer we live here in the broken city of man, the more we need the promise of the city of God. As life wears on, and we experience the inadequacy of this world at new levels, we can have one of three responses: (1) despair and distraction: we can become depressed at the state of things and flee to distractions like substances, entertainment, or anything to get our minds off our sorrow. This response does not fill us up with the presence of God, but empties us of it. If we respond to this world like the rest of society does, we should not expect we will have more joy or hope than they do. (2) finding a false savior: we can give ourselves to political and social movements with the false hope and ferver that we can set the world right without Jesus coming back. There's nothing wrong with making the world a better place, just with living with the commitment to a cause other than Jesus as if it's the thing that could set the world right. This kind of life leads to bitterness and despair. (3) What alternative is there to these responses? Longing for the city of God. Not despair or detraction but desiring. Instead of fixing our attention fully on the brokenness here, or numbing ourselves to it, we can meditate on the city God is building. Does this describe you? Do you think daily about God's promise to remake the world for his people after Jesus returns? God is inviting you to the hope in his promise to remake the world. I confess to you that looking forward to the new creation is not a daily part of my thought and prayer life as it's meant to be. God means for me to be more full of joy and more full of himself than I am. I keep myself from greater fullness of God by distracting myself from the pain of this life with empty entertainment. To be blunt: looking at my phone instead of meditating on and anticipating life with God robs me of more of God's presence. Church that leads to our main point this morning, Longing for the city of God will help get us safely home. It's the act of anticipating life in this city that God will use to supply us with strength to not fall into despair or trusting a false savior and instead safely arrive at the New Jerusalem. You could give up on following Jesus if you become too discouraged or too numbed and distracted, or too devoted to something else besides him, but not if you're thinking often of the place he is making for you. There's a song the elder team enjoys. We actually all jammed out to it in Dale's minivan when we were driving to our last retreat together. The song is Citizens by John Guerra and in it, he expresses his despair to God over the brokenness of this life, and then responds by hoping in the city of God. The chorus goes like this, Coming to you ‘cause I'm confused Coming to you ‘cause I feel used Coming to weep while I'm waiting Tell me you won't make me go I need to know there is justice and it will roll in abundance (and here it is…) and that you're building a city Where we arrive as immigrants And you call us citizens And you welcome us as children home Do you marvel God is building a city and will welcome you? Church, the thought of life forever with God is not meant to bore us, but to so fill us with hope that we can faithfully suffer well and arrive at home with God. You may wonder how you might become a citizen of this city if you have not yet. Please stick around and talk to myself or any of the members. You need to know the man who is king over it, Jesus, who shed his blood so that all who come to him could live in this place. One final word on this text. This image of a city as the new creation of God appears again at the end of the Bible in Revelation 21:9-10 Revelation 21:9–10 ESV 9 Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, Verse 10 which describes the new Jerusalem coming down from heaven onto a high mountain is what our church logo is depicting. We deeply long for the Lord to make the world right and the place where he dwells with his people. Our logo is a call for us to think about these things often.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Sober is Dope family and POP Buchanan Prayer for Protection https://www.catholicwarriors.com/pages/warfare_prayers.htm Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for sharing with me your wonderful ministry of healing and deliverance. Thank you for the healings that I have experienced today. I realize that the sickness of evil is more than my humanity can bear, so I ask you to cleanse me of any sadness, negative thinking, or despair that I may have picked up while interceding for others. If I have been tempted to anger, impatience, or lust, cleanse me of those temptations, and replace them with your love, joy, and peace. If any evil spirits have attached themselves to me or oppressed me in any way, I command you, spirits of earth, fire, water, the netherworld, or the evil forces of nature, to depart now and go straight to Jesus Christ, for him to deal with you as he wills. Come Holy Spirit, renew me, fill me with your love, peace, and joy. Strengthen me where I feel weak and clothe me with your light. Fill me with your life. Lord Jesus, please send your holy angels to minister to me and protect me from all forms of sickness, harm, and accidents. I thank you and praise you my Lord, God, and King.

In Feel Better in Five Minutes Amanda shares 79 emotional freedom methods to help others gain freedom from the anxiety, depression, and stress that are rampant today, to help themselves and others.

I carried it as part of my identity, for example, I am depressed, I am anxious. Now when I'm experiencing an emotion, actually I am grateful for it because this shows me that it's linked to something deeper. I will go into my emotional state and work on understanding what that emotion is connected to. Then I will start working on the underlying trauma or cause of that emotional state. This is true especially if I realize I am over-exaggerating my reaction to something. Thoughts on Breathing Breathing is one of those things that's very powerful because it supersedes or interjects itself into your body and into your mindset. I suggest doing intentional breathing, a deep breath into your belly, and breathing out, and focus on that for mindfulness. You can focus on breathing in calm energy and breathing out anxious energy, or breathing in happy energy and breathing out depressed energy. This is a very good way to come back to center and come back to focus because it takes your mind off of all other extraneous things that may be distracting you.

It was more feeling like I was left out a lot of times. Having developed a better sense of self when I was younger, if I'd had some kind of support, it would have been wonderful. When my youngest son was in first or second grade, there was a girl who was picking on him and he was really angry about it. He said, “I told the teacher and she won't listen because she's grown and I'm just a boy.” There was this whole dynamic that the teacher was just not understanding what was going on. I told him, “there's a reason that she's acting that way towards you. This is not about you, it's about what she's going through in her life. It's about her misery.” I said, “what she's feeling inside is so much harder for her than what she's giving to you, so you need to think about that. When she's mean to you, think, she must be really going through something.” He said that he got to where he could talk to her and he said, “mom, I found out that her parents were getting divorced. She was really angry because her mom was living with somebody else and she missed her dad.” He said, “I understand now”.

In these two-part Clinicians Series episodes, we go deeper into the therapist/patient experience and give our listeners an understanding of what occurs within the therapeutic process. In today's first part episode, Dr. Graham Taylor speaks with Ragan Schriver, PsyD, MSW. Ragan is an Associate Professor of Practice at the University of Tennessee's College of Social Work and director of the MSW program. Together we discuss how trauma causes adaptations in our behavior, the importance of recognizing oneself in the therapeutic relationship, and the significance of doing your own inner work to avoid the vicarious trauma that can mislead our clients. We also talk about how the therapist/client relationship creates a corrective emotional experience opportunity and the importance of trust in that relationship.

When Krista interviewed the psychiatrist and trauma specialist Bessel van der Kolk for the first time, his book The Body Keeps the Score was about to be published. She described him then as “an innovator in treating the effects of overwhelming experiences on people and society.” She catches up with him in 2021 — as we are living through one vast overwhelming experience after the other. And The Body Keeps the Score is now one of the most widely read books in the pandemic world. His perspective is utterly unique and very practically helpful — on what's been happening in our bodies and our brains, and how that relationship can become severed and restored.Bessel van der Kolk is the founder and medical director of the Trauma Research Foundation in Brookline, Massachusetts. He's also a professor of psychiatry at Boston University Medical School.

Rest In Peace to the victims in this tragic accident. This video is intended to shed deeper light on the dark effects of alcoholism in the World. No one wins in cases like this. We must hold everyone accountable including the industry that promotes heavy drinking, partying, and intoxication. It starts with the media, music, Hollywood, TV, and POP culture. These liquor manufacturers spend billions of dollars in advertisement attracting kids and young people. The social acceptability of alcohol consumption is the real problem. We must educate students, athletes, artist, and professionals alike of the dangers of alcohol consumption. Alcohol is toxin, and depressant, and can render someone unconscious at any moment. This is is an opportunity to hold big business accountable as well as Henry Ruggs iii, but not to persecute him. Our hearts goes out to the Victims Tina and her Dog.

The US is in the midst of an opioid overdose epidemic. If you or someone you know needs help, effective treatment is available and can save lives. ( www.hhs.gov/opioids ) REST IN PEACE: Micheal K. Williams, Mac Miller, Fuquan Johnson, Kate Quigley, Juice WRLD 52 weeks, 52 faces: https://www.statnews.com/feature/opioid-epidemic/obituaries/ Deaths involving illicitly manufactured fentanyl on the rise Overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids were nearly12x higher in 2019 than in 2013. Rates of overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids other than methadone, which includes fentanyl and fentanyl analogs, increased over 16% from 2018 to 2019. Overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids were nearly 12 times higher in 2019 than in 2013. More than 36,000 people died from overdoses involving synthetic opioids in 2019.3 The latest provisional drug overdose death counts through May 2020 suggest an acceleration of overdose deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic.4 What can be done? The increase in overdose deaths highlights the need to ensure people most at risk of overdose can access care, as well as the need to expand prevention and response activities. CDC issued a Health Alert Network Advisory to medical and public health professionals, first responders, harm reduction organizations, and other community partners recommending the following actions as appropriate based on local needs and characteristics: Expand distribution and use of naloxone and overdose prevention education. Expand awareness about and access to and availability of treatment for substance use disorders. Intervene early with individuals at highest risk for overdose. Improve detection of overdose outbreaks to facilitate more effective response.

Join us for the latest episode of The Hamilton Review Podcast! In this conversation, Dr. Bob sits down with LMFT, Jon Sorensen for an in depth and informative discussion about adverse childhood experiences, when to seek therapy and the impact on adulthood. Enjoy this great conversation and share with a friend! Jon is a published author, teacher and education researcher. Through his work with families as a teacher, he recognized that many “learning challenges” or “behavioral issues” were in fact, a result of emotional struggles, generational trauma, and unbalanced family dynamics. Having found a field that demanded he use all his analytical, scientific, creative, existential and philosophical impulses, Jon began working on a specialization in healing developmental trauma, PTSD and resulting mental health struggles. How now operates a thriving therapy practice in Santa Monica CA. Leveraging newfound knowledge developed by people like Bessel van der Kolk, Peter Levine, Elaine Miller-Karas, Francine Shapiro, Eugene Gendlin, Laurel Parnell and others, Jon continues to apply the most effective treatments for his clients while happily donating his time to speak to individuals and groups to educate people about how much is known and how much is available to us now that did not exist 30 years ago. Jon asserts that 30 years ago, you had to learn to cope with and accept many mental health challenges. Now, you can actually reset your nervous system and live free of traumatizing experiences.

Show Notes:Have you ever lost a close loved one? Perhaps a parent, sibling, close grandparent, or friend. Was it painful? It likely was. And each of us has our own way of dealing with those inevitable pains of life. Some more healthy than others. But no matter how we deal with it, we have to deal with it. We can't just run and hide, we have to face the pain. On the show today I sit down with a woman who has not only had incredibly painful experiences in her own life loosing two children, but she shares how she had turned those experiences into a source of strength for her that she now uses to help and coach women going through the same things.Andi and her amazing husband of almost 15 years are parents to 4 great kids and 2 angel babies. Andi has always loved people. With her bachelors degree, she was able to work as a Recreational Therapist until the kids came along. She says she got her business training by accidentally (and eventually intentionally) building a network marketing business. She fell in love with coaching her team members and furthered her training by becoming a Certified Life Coach through The Life Coach School. She is currently living in Austin, TX with her family and homeschooling her two 6th graders as they build a business together (@duoshelf). On the show today we discuss the following:Who is Andi and what does she do (6:22)Andi's experience in both Eastern and Western Germany (9:16)Andi's story of losing a child (14:12)Andi's advice on how to sit with and deal with pain (20:17)Andi's perspective of what a relationship is (24:46)What happens when we don't deal with pain (29:43)How Andi deals personally with fear and failure (41:04)What does it mean to her to be a Contender (46:34)How to learn more about Andi:Andi's Website: heysweetmama.comAdditional Books, Individuals, or Items Discuss in the show:doTerraThe Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der KolkContact the Host: rob@contenderswanted.comGiveaway: We would really appreciate it if you were willing to leave us a rating and review on Apple Podcasts.

#text-block-617b738d954df { margin-bottom:0px; text-align:left; } Listen in to this deep conversation with Cynthia Merchant and Drew about the Hoffman Process, trauma and trauma-healing, Somatic Experiencing®, and the basic goodness that underlies everything. Cynthia's vast knowledge and many decades of experience in working with people to heal trauma have helped her realize that the essential self is "ever-intending toward wholeness." Cynthia is a Marriage Family Therapist and Somatic Experiencing® practitioner. She first completed the Hoffman Process when it was still in the three-month format. A few years later, she was asked to teach the Process. For seventeen years, she taught and supervised the teaching of the Hoffman Quadrinity Process in the US and abroad. Cynthia was fortunate to work and teach closely with Bob Hoffman for many years. Cynthia has an eclectic, embodied, soulful approach to healing and change. She has over thirty years of international experience facilitating psycho-educational, transformational groups. More about Cynthia Merchant Since 1988, Cynthia has trained directly with Dr. Peter Levine, the developer of the trauma resolution approach, Somatic Experiencing ® (SE™.) She has collaborated with him in many professional, master-level trainings. Cynthia has also taught the Enneagram, as well as trauma-informed somatic approaches to professionals. She facilitates experiential groups throughout the US, Europe, South America, Asia, and Canada. L-R: Cynthia, Reza Leah Landman, Bob Hoffman, Dr. Claudio Naranjo From 1989 until his death in 2019, Cynthia has been a dedicated student, collaborator, and friend of consciousness, Enneagram, and Hoffman Process pioneer of Dr. Claudio Naranjo and his Seekers After Truth (SAT) programs. She is the Executive Director of SAT Institute — USA, an educational non-profit, delivering the Naranjo Seeker After Truth programs in the US. In her private practice, Cynthia works with individuals, couples, children, & families to facilitate the resolution of accumulated, traumatic, and/or developmental stress and nervous system dis-regulation, resolve limiting attachment conditioning, and catalyze and stabilize resilience. Cynthia approaches the human transformational adventure with kindness & gusto. She encourages attitudes of self-acceptance, compassion, and love in her clients and students as they cultivate more robust, satisfying lives. As mentioned in this episode Peter Levine, PhD:  As Cynthia recounts, Dr. Levine developed Somatic Experiencing ® (SE™.) Over the years since, he "taught it to anyone who would listen and mentored thousands of therapists and healers worldwide." Dr. Claudio Naranjo: Claudio Naranjo, M.D., was trained as a medical doctor. He came to the US from Chile, being one of the very first people to bring the Enneagram to the world. He also supported Bob Hoffman in bringing the work Bob was doing one-on-one with people into the group setting that became the Hoffman Process. Claudio was also the author of several books. The Enneagram or Enneagram of Personality: is a model of the human psyche largely taught as a designation of nine interconnected personality types. Reza Leah Landman: Reza Leah was an early Hoffman Process teacher, a therapist, and founder of The Institute for the Telling of Teaching Tales, Berkeley, CA. She was a master storyteller and was actively involved with spiritually-inspired actions the world over. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, MD: The author of The New York Times bestseller, The Body Keeps the Score. Dr. van der Kolk is a psychiatrist, author, researcher, and educator. Since the 1970s, his research has been in the area of post-traumatic stress. #text-block-617b738d95a9d { margin-bottom:0px; text-align:left; } Orienting Exercise: At minutes 51:33 - 54:47, Cynthia offers an exercise in orienting oneself back to the here and now, especially re-orienting after an inner-world experience.

Dr. Alauna Curry is like every other therapist out there–a regular person with struggles and pain just like the rest of us. And in 2017, when her marriage, finances, and health all came crashing down, she was reminded that everyone has trauma–but not all of us know how it affects us or the empathy with which we view the world. This episode's practice is about understanding our traumas, and using our brains to learn practical skills that will help us heal them.    Want to connect?
