Sessions are recorded and emailed to participants within 48 hours after each meeting.

Although our true nature is untouched by anything we experience, our human body and mind are impacted by experiences that result in trauma. Any experience, especially early in life, that is outside our window of tolerance, can overwhelm our nervous system and create chronic stress patterns in the body/mind. These stuck patterns can affect our spiritual awakening process by making it more difficult to relax, trust, be in the present moment, and allow everything to be as it is—all of which are necessary for awakening. 

This course will explore how to see healing from trauma and spiritual awakening as one process; each supporting the other. The more we awaken to our true nature, the more capacity we have to be present with traumatic stress; and the more we work with the trauma, the more capacity we have to be awake. Therefore, this course will point to both working with trauma using therapeutic methods and awakening to what is already free. 

This four-week course will include the following topics:

  • What is trauma? How it affects our neuro-physiology and creates fixed beliefs 
  • How trauma can be a path to awakening 
  • How trauma can be an obstacle to awakening
  • How healing trauma and awakening are not separate paths
  • How it’s not your fault—It’s your nervous system
  • Skills for being present with and healing symptoms of trauma
  • Guided meditations for awakening

There will be “homework” assignments given each week to work on between meetings for maximum benefit. Time permitting, Lynn Marie will work with participants individually during the meetings.
