Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a profound healing tool. This mind-body therapy has freed my body from trauma—and that, my friend, is a miracle! I wanted to demystify SE for you, so I called in an expert. Today’s Big Talk with renowned SE practitioner Dave Berger is a beautiful overview of a practice that can help you heal emotional wounds, regulate your nervous system and lower your stress levels. RESOURCES:
The following are helpful resources and books I mention in the episode:
Meditation is a powerful way to calm your thoughts and your body. I’d love to send you two of my favorite meditations for free. Sign up here to have them delivered to your inbox. https://bit.ly/35tjSax
In my new book, Happy Days: The Guided Path from Trauma to Profound Freedom and Inner Peace, I share the 9 spiritual and therapeutic tools that helped me survive and thrive after trauma. In Chapter 8, “Freeing What’s Frozen,” I dive into my experience with SE.
