Are you experiencing physical or emotional symptoms that no one is able to explain? If so, you may be suffering a traumatic reaction to a past event, teaches Dr. Peter A. Levine. Medical researchers have known for decades that survivors of accidents, disaster, and childhood trauma often endure life-long symptoms ranging from anxiety and depression to unexplained physical pain and harmful acting-out behaviors. As a young stress researcher at the University of California at Berkeley, Levine found that all animals, including humans, are born with a natural ability to rebound from these distressing situation.

On Healing Trauma, this respected therapist and teacher brings you face to face with his effective new treatment, not a talking cure, but a deep physiological process for releasing your past traumas and instilling a harmonious awareness of your body. Drawing on nature's lessons, Dr. Levine teaches you each of the essential principles of his four-phase process. You will learn how and where you are storing unresolved distress; how to become more aware of your body's physiological responses to danger; and specific methods to free yourself from trauma.

Course Objectives:

  • Identify the two categories of trauma-causing experiences.
  • Explain the three innate human responses to threat.
  • Summarize the 12 elements of renegotiation.
  • Define the four gateways to enlightenment.
  • Clarify the three phases of “emotional first aid.”

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, more than 23 million Americans suffer from anxiety disorders, many as a direct result of trauma. Now you can learn how to address these and other symptoms at their source—your body—and return to the natural trauma-free state that you were meant to live in. More than six hours of instruction to free yourself from trauma through your body's built-in healing process. This program includes a 43-page study guide.


  • A revolutionary method for releasing trauma, taught step by step

  • How to determine if you are suffering the effects of trauma
  • Where trauma hides in your body and how to release it
  • Specific exercises to thaw frozen physiological energies

Hello Sounds True,

I cannot rate this item because I never received it.
I am very disappointed that my email communication with you have never been answered.
I also tried your international customer help line
but could not get through!

I sincerely hope that this item is still on its way to me,
