Where is trauma stored in the body? SPECIAL TOPIC LECTURE. #trauma #nervoussystem

In this special topic lecture, I cover what is my current understanding of 'where trauma is stored in the body.' This lecture is based on my professional and personal experience, as well as keeping an open eye and ear on new findings and ideas from others who are immersed in the fields of healing and wellness. One thing is for certain: our traumas and survival energies are definitely stored IN the body, and for each person how that happens, where that happens, and how they are released and integrated is very much based on the individual and their capacity, as well as mastery, to be with their human experiences in all their colour, wonder, and pain. I once heard Jordan Peterson say that the best way to learn and dissect a topic is to teach it, and that is what I offer you in this lecture. Thank you for being here and continuing to learn. Enjoy!
