7 Ways YOU Can Spread Hope in the World

In 1985, Deepak Chopra’s first books helped with my healing path, and I went to a lecture and was quite moved by his gentle yet resolute approach. He was a student of Yogananda, who opened a door for many of us in the 1960s. And yet, I haven’t been plugged in to Chopra’s work for a while.

But yesterday when a friend posted Oprah & Deepak’s “Hope in Uncertain Times,” I signed up and began, even though it was Day 4. You see, my hope has been in short supply lately. And today, I could feel a shift.

Childhood Abuse Affects Genes and Health into Adulthood

Childhood abuse and trauma produce hormonal & gene changes that affect children into adulthood. The linked article is a wonderfully clear explanation about some current research being conducted on stress hormones. http://to.pbs.org/1s7ubUo 
Many of my clients (both somatic coaching and headache) have experienced trauma and abuse, and I find that it underlies their bodily tension, mood, and mindset about their health, healing, and lives in general. I work with them to unwind their trauma through Somatic Bodywork and Coaching and specialized Somatic Trauma training that honors their experience and helps them build the boundaries, voice, and safety that were violated.
