Here’s a podcast from the podcast The Trauma Therapist Project. In the interview I share a bit about how my own trauma history came up and how I used the wisdom of yoga to transform my life. you might want to skip to about 2 minutes to the interview.
In the interview I strongly advocated learning how to trust my own and other’s true nature guiding us back to ourselves. I was actually surprised to hear myself talk about the “soul vow” I’d taken in this life time, to help others make their way through their own trauma, returning to their true nature. Guy asked me how I dealt with the fear of trauma. I realized trauma doesn’t scare me. The more we face our own dark places the more peace we have and can share with others. Sitting with Guy I realized trauma therapists are the modern day bodhisattvas, guiding people through suffering.
