With the increasing complexities of our lives and the global, collective traumas of our era we are seeing huge increases in levels of anxiety, degeneration, and trauma.

We, as therapists and teachers have a unique opportunity to step up and provide more profound and effective therapies to our clients and students.

We will look at the destructive chemistry of fear and anxiety, the triggering process that keeps the trauma in a recurring cycle that continues to debilitate our lives long after the event, and a pathway to recovery utilizing the reorganization of somatic patterns whose repetitions keep the trauma active.

This is an exploration of the body-mind interface, and of the means to shift consciousness through the direct experiencing of new improved sensory-motor coordination, a heightening of sensory awareness, and with these the building of the means to interrupt and re-program the body-mind's habituated responses to triggers and continual re-lived veridical memory of the event.

"Trauma is not what happens to you, but what happens inside you as a result of what happened to you." -- Gabor Matte
