Trauma as a Path to Embodied Wisdom

A three-part course with Julie Brown Yau


Member Access                             Purchased Access


Resolving trauma can be the basis of embodied knowing, integrated wisdom, and a strong authentic presence. We also find a grounded vibrancy, a feeling of home in the body, and a release of fear so nonduality is revealed.

We explore surrender and detachment as a means of healing, resolution, and freedom. We will also explore beyond trauma, were we return to love, the love from which we never truly left, and the natural embodiment of Shakti.

To do so we look at the often-tumultuous energies of trauma and how to navigate them. We call on the experience of a powerful feminine force, who has the capacity to dissolve ignorance and the duality of our mind.

Each module includes discussion and a meditation or experiential practice.
