Somatic Experiencing… Healing Early Imprints and Developmental Trauma

A result of situations that overwhelm our capacity to defend ourselves and we feel powerless.  It is anything that threatens our physical, emotional, social, or spiritual existence. Often unseen, ignored and misinterpreted.  We identify trauma as war, natural disasters, violence, neglect, abandonment, and physical or sexual abuse… we need to expand our definition.  What determines whether something is traumatic is the person’s experience.

Sound Frequency in Healing
