Transforming instead of surviving

Stress, tension and even trauma are things that people struggle with particularly these days.

Even if we want to avoid them, they are part of the human life and we all experience them at some point. It is more a question of how we deal with it and transform it, rather than just survive it.

When tension and stress have built up and there is no chance of being released, we tend to project it inwardly or we start to project it outwardly in the form of violence, anger or frustration. If we leave it completely untreated, it may even lead to a feeling of disconnection from ourselves, our loved ones and the world around us.

In this course, Sandra Carson will offer you theoretical knowledge and practical tools to enable you to process deeply-stored stress and trauma. You’ll learn how to deal with traumatic and stressful events more skillfully and maintain a healthy nervous system to enable you to ultimately live a happier, healthier, more relaxed and balanced life.

What is trauma?

Trauma is a multi-layered word. Though it is often used in the context of extreme, life-threatening situations, its definition can be much broader.

Trauma can be generated by any distressing or disturbing situation that overwhelms our system. It could be childbirth, a divorce, an unhealthy workplace, a house move, falling down the stairs, an operation etc. Be it a dramatic, life-changing event or a quiet, seemingly innocuous one, it may still have the power to generate a strong physical or emotional response long after it's over.

We all respond differently to stress and trauma, but if it is not processed, both can have far-reaching consequences that impact us and those around us.
