In this module, Thomas will explore how trauma gets stored in our bodies, embedded in our nervous systems and carried forward in our DNA. And after many thousands of years of evolution, traumatic experiences cause us to become either hyper-activated and stressed, or we go numb. He will also discuss why those who are on a spiritual path are drawn toward difficult and challenging moments and experiences, seeing them as signposts for growth.
You will discover how to…
Experience trauma as an intelligent function of your personal evolution
Understand the differences between “developmental” trauma and “shock” trauma
Recognize the early symptoms of a trauma response in yourself and others
Reframe any cultural assumptions you may be susceptible to that might be affecting your perception of your own and others’ traumas
