A Five Spirit Approach to Treating Shock and Trauma
In this live webinar offered by ProD Seminars, practitioners will learn about trauma and its effects on the body, mind and spirit. We will look at how the organism’s response to overwhelming life experiences has a positive, life-preserving effect, yet over time can become debilitating and a cause of disease in itself. Turning to the wisdom of the Taoist system of wushen or the Five Spirits, we will explore simple, effective strategies that can initiate processes of healing and transformation.
