Healing From Trauma | Moving From Pain to Possibility Episode 284, January 6, 2023
I have yet to meet anyone who hasn’t suffered some form of trauma. It seems that the human experience was made to include trauma. Trauma doesn’t just mean physical abuse, sexual abuse, and war. It can be more minor things like not having all your needs met at any point in childhood. The simplest definition of trauma is anything too high in magnitude for you to deal with at the time.
My guest today, Greg Wieting, helps leaders and entrepreneurs heal anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and trauma so they can lead with bold and courageous hearts.
For two decades, he’s helped hundreds of clients reduce or eliminate their dependence on antidepressants, anxiety, pain, and sleep meds. He addresses the unresolved trauma that causes inflammation, compromises immune function, stagnates emotion, fogs thought, and creates hormonal imbalance.
He is the founder of PRISMA – a framework overlaying trauma, neuroscience, and energy medicine with somatic and mindfulness-based practices. He developed this while healing his anxiety, depression, and chronic pain rooted in trauma. This included unraveling a severe spinal curvature and standing three inches taller today!
We explore attachment wounding, unmet needs, and unresolved trauma. As well as the benefits of energy medicine and trying things you’ve never heard of.
“I think healing is developing a really robust, compassionate relationship from ourselves to ourselves.”Greg Wieting
