CEU: A Five Spirit Approach to Treating Shock and Trauma - Online
of us live with the effects of trauma and loss without any conscious
awareness of cause. In fact, a number of the psychological and
psychosomatic symptoms we see in clinical practice are the result of
primary and secondary trauma. We could call trauma the world's most
widespread "hidden pathogen." The ancient Chinese recognized it over
2,000 years ago in the form of shen disturbances and possession states.
In this class, practitioners will learn about trauma and its effects
on the body, mind and spirit. We will look at how the organism's
response to overwhelming life experiences has a positive,
life-preserving effect, yet over time can become debilitating and a
cause of disease in itself. Turning to the wisdom of the Taoist system
of wushen or the Five Spirits, we will explore simple, effective
strategies that can initiate processes of healing and transformation.
