Mindfulness and Somatic Meditations to Heal from Trauma

  • A unique and effective approach to healing trauma that uses nature- and body-based mindfulness practices to promote peace and wholeness
  • More than 70 percent of people experience at least one trauma in their lifetime, and 20 percent of these people will develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • The author is a clinical psychologist, mindfulness teacher, and somatic experiencing practitioner who travels widely providing continuing education to psychotherapists, social workers, physical therapists, and nurses
  • Research shows that nature benefits mental, physical, and emotional well-beingMany who suffer with anxiety, depression, and resulting relation- ship, financial, and health issues don’t attribute these symptoms to past traumatic experiences, assuming that trauma stems only from catastrophic events such as war, rape, and natural disaster. But trauma can also arise from much more common events, such as illness, loss of a loved one, racism, and the bad news of the day. As Rochelle Calvert shows in this powerful book, the greatest source of healing is all around us: nature, which inherently restores itself in the face of calamity. Dr. Calvert shows readers how to engage with nature to calm and relax the nervous system using the five senses; tune into the somatic wisdom of the body to face lingering trauma and rewire it; and work with painful experiences to transform them and ultimately grow from them in ways that heal not just the individual but the wider world. Proving that it is not merely time that heals, but what one does during that time, Healing with Nature pioneers a path to not just recovery but lifelong resilience.
