Transforming Trauma Episode 091: NARM Inner Circle Presents: NARM & Heartfulness with Dr. Laurence Heller and Brad Kammer
A podcast brought to you by the NARM® Training Institute
In this special episode of Transforming Trauma, the NARM Training Institute presents a gift to Transforming Trauma listeners: a special topic webinar from the NARM Inner Circle online program. This webinar provides a window into the Inner Circle learning community where helping professionals from around the world come together to learn more about the NARM approach to resolving Complex Trauma.
In this webinar, NARM and Heartfulness, NARM creator Dr. Laurence Heller and NARM Senior Trainer Brad Kammer, explore the importance of integrating the heart with the mind during the healing process. More specifically, they reflect on the survival functions of disconnecting from and shutting down the heart based on early loss, heartbreak, and the impact of developmental trauma.
Larry and Brad touch on such areas as:
- Why reconnecting to the heart is essential to the healing process.
- Why the concept of heartfulness is important in working with complex trauma.
- How to differentiate between mindfulness and heartfulness in clinical practice.
- How developmental trauma affects a child’s relationship to their heart.
- How closing one’s heart in an adult intimate relationship affects the capacity for intimacy.
- The role that grieving plays in supporting increased heartfulness and the resolution of complex trauma.
Throughout the episode, they also introduce several self-reflective exercises to support listeners’ learning process on the theme of heartfulness.
