The Meadows Senior Fellow Dr. Peter Levine presents: In an Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness this Thursday, April 2 at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch Arizona Ballroom from 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
The presentation discusses how trauma is neither a disease nor a disorder, but is rather an injury caused by paralyzing fright, helplessness and loss. By enlisting the wisdom of the living sensing body, and engaging our innate capacity to self-regulate high states of arousal and intense emotions, trauma can be transformed and healed. There will also be a discussion on the roots of addiction in unresolved trauma, insecure attachment, and in habitual childhood frustration.
Dr. Levine draws on over 40 years experience as a pioneering body-oriented clinician with a focus on stress, biology, child development and discoveries in neurosciences. He shows that it is possible to live life robustly with pleasure and creativity even in the face of the most painful assaults to our humanity, as well as in the face of deceptively trivial ones.
From an evolutionary understanding of the source of trauma, to a spiritual dimension of how we as human beings can be strengthened by traumatic healing – we learn to attend to the “unspoken voice of the body.”
