A Trauma Healing Journey from Hauntings to Wholeness

We tend to believe in free will. That it is we who ultimately determines our fate; that we are the captains of our own ships. When working with healing trauma, this belief is often challenged, as we become aware of repetitive patterns of suffering and unhappiness that can span generations. This pattern is grounded in an energetic presence of unresolved trauma responses that were once activated for protection and have now passed on from generation to generation. These lingering “ghosts” can still have powerful influences on our emotions, reactions, behaviors, and choices.

During this 2 session online course, Dr Peter Levine will lead us through how, unbeknown to us, we may be influenced by events and circumstances that our ancestors (and their ancestors in turn) have experienced during their lifetimes. These influences are often far out of conscious awareness. By exploring our unconscious connection to our lineage, that neither time nor distance alters, we can be capable of connecting to the complexities of our family line with healing reverence.

Throughout the course, we will practice bringing our stories of origin into awareness and observing them with open eyes, an open heart, and an open mind. During this process, we may also connect to great ancestral resources and vitality that can support us on our path to healing. It is in our collective journey that we are capable of letting go of that which does not serve our future growth. With this exploration, we can truly live our lives and claim our destinies as we move towards authentic freedom.
