Gopal Norbert Klein can only recommend to anyone who has the feeling of being stuck in spirituality and not getting any further to deal with the topic of trauma therapy. This is especially true for people with binding disorders. For them, satsang, meditation and spirituality can become a dead end. Local group work possible!
Drawing from depth psychology, Somatic Experiencing™, trauma healing methods, yoga and meditative practices, and neuroscience, these practices can be done solo, in pairs, or as a support to psychotherapy, yoga, and healing sessions.
Vipassana focuses on the deep interconnection, which can be experienced directly by disciplined attention to the physical sensations. It is this observation-based, self-exploratory journey that dissolves mental impurity. Central is the knowledge of body sensations and the space between. A very down to earth grounding meditation and extremely helpful in combination with trauma work.
NEW since corona crisis: An Assistant Teacher-led Virtual Group Sittings (via Video, ZOOM) program. These 1-hour sittings are often followed by a brief question and answer period with the Assistant Teachers. The program is off to a great start, and supplements the existing Virtual Phone Group Sittings (via audio) program. We have received an excellent response and many hundreds of meditators have logged in for morning and evening sittings.
Dr. Maté, renowned addiction expert, calls for a compassionate approach toward addiction, whether in ourselves or in others. Dr. Maté believes that the source of addictions is not to be found in genes but in the early childhood environment.
“Before we ask how we handle something, we have to understand what are we handling,” Addiction connects back to trauma that people have experienced in their life, said Mate. Once people understand this, then treatment can happen.

The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) is a method of psychotherapy specifically aimed at treating attachment, relational and developmental trauma, otherwise referred to as “Complex Trauma” (Complex-PTSD or C-PTSD). This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model emerged out of earlier psychotherapeutic orientations including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Gestalt Therapy, and diverse Somatic Psychotherapy approaches. Integrating top-down psychotherapy with
bottom-up somatic approaches within a relational context.
NARM holds that while what happened in the past is significant, it is not what happened in the past that creates the symptoms that people experience as adults. It is the persistence of survival styles appropriate to the past that distorts present experience and creates symptoms. These survival patterns, having outlived their usefulness, create ongoing disconnection from our authentic self and from others. For example, dissociation and isolation are the primary coping mechanisms for dealing with the earliest trauma. While dissociation and isolation have literally saved people’s lives, as this pattern continues into adulthood, it creates endless symptoms.resources/ listen to podcasts +
Because trauma has so many physical effects, it’s clear to Bessel why it’s important to move beyond simply talking: “It’s great to be able to put your feelings into words,” he says, “and feeling that somebody understands your suffering is enormously comforting. But it doesn’t make your body know that you are safe. The real method is resetting your physiology.”
Bessel says that yoga is an ideal method to do this. “Yoga really attends to the body and the breath, attends to stillness. It allows you to feel everything you feel, to tolerate every sensation, and to live and move with it.”
To this end, he recommends yoga in conjunction with working with a person who has special training in trauma therapy. “None of my patients have been able to tolerate a yoga program if they weren’t in therapy at the same time. Too much painful stuff comes up.”
Of course, yoga isn’t the only body-based therapy for releasing past trauma. “Overcoming trauma is learning how to regulate your own psychological system, and there are many ways to do that,” says Bessel. Other somatic techniques helpful for trauma include Somatic Experiencing, Sensory Motor Therapy, Hakomi Method, EMDR, and Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy. As more research is done on trauma, somatic therapies like these just might move to the forefront of trauma recovery.
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy interventions guide an individual in becoming aware of how their body communicates emotion, particularly those that resulted from a traumatic experience, and then focuses on assisting the client in learning how to manage those feelings and the somatic expression. Treatment is designed to prevent re-traumatization by building resources for the modulation of emotion and arousal. For additional information go to: www.sensorimotorpsychotherapy.org.by Pat Ogden.
Note site author: In general psycho therapy is mind based on a separate identity, a story. When we drop the story, life is very simple, when it comes to trauma. Anyhow any tool is welcome, just be aware of the pitfall of psycho therapy please.
German New Medicine is not only a new paradigm of medicine, it is also a new consciousness. It is the awareness that our organism possesses an inexhaustible creativity and remarkable self-healing capabilities. It is the recognition that each cell of our body is endowed with a biological wisdom we share with all living beings.

Orgone Energy: The Greatest Discovery SUPPRESSED by the FDA
Scenes from the documentaries: "The Strange Case of Wilhelm Reich" (2012) and "Wilhelm Reich - Cloudbusting" (1953) were used under Fair Use.
Wilhelm Reich was a major contributor to the body/mind sciences of the early 20th century, and is credited as being the key driver of this form of scientific enquiry in the West up until the 1940’s. Reich proposed a model of the human condition that suggested a theory of energy being a primary component of all matter and space, a concept he called the orgone energy. This energy was important for living organisms as in effect it was a “life force”.
In his Segmental Armoring theory, seven segments of the body exist where armoring or muscular tensions develop or takes place, and where the segmental contractions are at right angles to the flow of “life force” or orgone energy in the body.
Reichian Therapy Relieves Armoring, Myofascial Release. Once Reich began to understand the process of armoring and its meaning in our lives, he began to develop a number of techniques to dissolve or unwind it. The first of these techniques is hinted at in the term "energy economy" mentioned above.
Reich saw emotional repression as a conflict of opposing forces triggered by a painful experience. When individuals experience a physical or emotional trauma, they naturally want to express it. However, when that natural expression is repressed out of fear or for other reasons, it doesn't just go away, it continually seeks expression. It pushes to get out. When the need to repress the emotion pushes back, the two forces become locked in a constant state of opposition.
welcome-to-acesconnection-com ACEs Connection is a social network that supports communities to accelerate the global ACEs science movement, to recognize the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in shaping adult behavior and health, and to promote trauma-informed and resilience-building practices and policies in all communities and institutions — from schools to prisons to hospitals and churches — to help heal and to develop resilience instead of traumatizing already traumatized.
Bert Hellinger is the founder of Family Constellation, which he began in 1978.
Today the Original Hellinger® Family Constellation is offered worldwide by the Hellinger®schule. It is managed by his wife Sophie Hellinger.
It is a method that takes place in a group under the guidance of one person. It serves people to uncover the backgrounds of failure, illness, disorientation, addiction, or anything similar. Family constellation is useful wherever there is a direct need for action or decision-making.
In Family Constellations our beliefs come to light, can be questioned and released. The decision as to whether you are ready to do so is made only by you personally.
Wife of Rupert sheldrake, Jill Purce, works with each person within the group using her unique method combining chant, ceremony and family constellations to heal the resonant fields of family and ancestors, unlocking persistent patterns so that order and joy is restored.
I was shown that the human body is devoid of a personal self. This understanding made my professional work instantly inconsequential. If the personal self does not exist the way I assumed, then what benefit did my work actually have, I wondered? The flash-knowing let me know that self-improvement entraps people in a never-ending merry-go-round. It was clear to me that at the level of the personal self, True Freedom cannot be achieved.

Our children do not come FROM (by) us but THROUGH us. And: humankind did not come from evolution (product of) but emerge through evolution.

Infants whose continuum needs are fulfilled during the early, in-arms phase grow up to have greater self-esteem and become more independent than those whose cries go unanswered for fear of "spoiling" them or making them too dependent.
According to Jean Liedloff, the continuum concept is the idea that in order to achieve optimal physical, mental and emotional development, human beings — especially babies — require the kind of experience to which our species adapted during the long process of our evolution.
