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.

This helped me with my PTSD, Trigger-free for 2 years now. Review by tomsgirl7


I would never have believed I wouldn't have PTSD. I bought Peter Levine's 6-CD set & listened to him walk me through the recovery process that took my major triggers away.
What happened to me will never change, but reliving it over & over has stopped.
Thank You, Peter Levine for this information for Healing Trauma. (Posted on June 11, 2016)

Awesome Review by Maryann


This course is deeply engaging, explaining trauma from a neurobiological point of view in a way that is simple to understand. I also appreciated Dr. Levine's recording, in that his tone and pacing conveyed a soothing experience. I'm grateful that Dr Levine's scientific inquiries are finally bringing a way for Western medicine to embrace the wisdom traditions of indigenous traditions, and particularly on the emphasis of mind-body connection. I see Dr. Levine's work as revolutionary, enabling a scientific understanding of the actual biological mechanisms, whereby stress and trauma wreak havoc on the body. With Dr Levine's theory of nervous system deregulation, it is really interesting to have an explanation of "mental illness," that instead of just describing the pathology (i.e., not enough serotonin, etc.) offers both an explanatory framework for HOW that came to be the case AND what is actually happening in the body that is causing an individual to feel so much distress.

Healing Trauma Review by Jessica P


I am once again engaged with this CD set 18 months after I first purchased it. I am even more captivated with the material now, than when I first listened to it at the time of initial trauma. I highly recommend this CD set to EVERYONE despite whether you feel you need it or not. Peter Levine offers practical ways to re-bridge the Cartesian mind-body split. Re-enchanting the world, one reflective experience at a time. (Posted on October 12, 2015)
