The Relationship Between Trauma & the Mind with Karen Macklin

This module will help you gain a deeper understanding of how trauma affects the brain and autonomic nervous system. You will come to understand the implications that trauma has on our daily behavior, ability to concentrate, and our personal sense of safety. As Karen guide you through the three central brain regions, you will learn how they correlate to trauma, while exploring the concepts of addiction and shame.

Finally, you will gain a greater understanding of how both Yogic and Buddhist frameworks define trauma. Karen will highlight the timeless practice of mindfulness as a way to work with post-traumatic stress. This module is mostly theory and discussion with some periods of seated meditation practice.
