Dr. Shelley Uram on One's Authentic Nature
One of America's most respected centers for treating trauma and addiction, The Meadows presents a 16-part video series, viewable on YouTube, in which Dr. Shelley Uram addresses topics ranging from the sense of self to the benefits of Somatic Experiencing.
In the installment titled "One's Authentic Nature," Dr. Uram, a psychologist and senior fellow at The Meadows, discusses the authentic nature, or authentic self, inside every person.
"Everybody has an authentic nature," she explains. "Most people are very unaware of it." While we're born with bodies and brains that are survival- and fear-based, our authentic nature often pulls us in the opposite direction.
"The more primitive parts of your brain don't even understand authenticity," Dr. Uram adds.
In other videos in this series, Dr. Uram shares her expertise on trauma triggers, addiction, and the effects of emotional trauma on brain development.
