    Hi folks,

    Below is a link to an On Being podcast on EMDR, Yoga, and healing trauma which is very much from a mindbody perspective. On Being is broadcast on NPR, and I find it heartening whenever I see the mindbody perspective get coverage in the mainstream media (I guess NPR falls into that category...)

    I enjoyed it so thought I'd pass it along,

    This is a really great podcast. The following line of it really spoke to me

    This really shows how the past can effect us in the present day, where we continue to find ourselves reliving the recurring memory. I would add that a traumatic memory is not exclusively an extreme event such as abuse or violence. I think it can also be being criticized on a repeated basis or anything else that makes us feel unworthy. We relive this memories more then we remember them, which is why we tend to automatically repress our emotions.

    Thanks for posting this. It is terrific.

    Thought I'd bring this thread back up for those of you enjoying the book The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel Van Der Kolk, MD. He is interviewed in this podcast.

    The more I read this book, the more I love it. It is written in such a kind, compassionate, and heartfelt manner, while still being incredibly informative and well-researched.
