also available on
I was happy to connect and speak with Erin, a classmate of mine from the University of Santa Monica's Spiritual Psychology program.
Erin has taken a dive (no pun intended!) into using water to facility deep healing and trauma release.
With trauma in our world today being such an epidemic, I was fascinated to learn of such a gentle yet powerful intervention.
Some highlights include...
What is trauma, really!?
How our bodies can hold on to the energy of trauma
How trauma can create pain mentally, emotionally, and physically
How the water can be such a powerful means to release this trauma
Some profound stories from the work she has been facilitating
