Trauma as a Path to Embodied Wisdom

Trauma as a Path to Embodied Wisdom

With Julie Brown Yau  •  Sundays, November 10, 17, 24, 2019

A 3-part Live Webinar Series

Meetings take place in the Modules tab.

Meeting will begin at 10am Pacific Time. Time on your browser may be adjusted to your own timezone. If it doesn't look right try setting your timezone in your Account Details.

Resolving trauma can be the basis of embodied knowing, integrated wisdom, and a strong authentic presence. We also find a grounded vibrancy, a feeling of home in the body, and a release of fear so nonduality is revealed.
In this webinar series, which combines trauma and spiritual practice we will:

  • Look at the dynamics of developmental trauma, learn to recognize the limitations and disconnection that ensues in adulthood
  • Explore the deepest layers of trauma, often hidden below conscious awareness
  • Explore how to integrate every messy and beautiful aspect of our being, even the most frightening
  • Know the return to unfettered love is possible

In our time together we will explore surrender and detachment as a means of healing, resolution, and freedom. We will also explore beyond trauma, were we return to love, the love from which we never truly left, and the natural embodiment of Shakti.
To do so we will look at the often-tumultuous energies of trauma and how to navigate them. We will call on the experience of a powerful feminine force, who has the capacity to dissolve ignorance and the duality of our mind.
Please join Julie Brown Yau on this exciting experiential endeavor of returning to the body, to love, to your powerful sense of agency and connectedness in the world.

Each module will consist of discussion and a meditation or experiential practice.

Giving Protection to and Going Beyond the Mind

Nov 24, 2019 10:00am - 11:30am PST

Giving protection to and going beyond the mind. In the last module of this series, we shall connect with a fierce feminine energy, Chamunda. The purpose is to connect with her, as a field of consciousness, as a container, so we can feel the intensity of volatile energies. Often anger emerges before our body has cultivated the capacity to be fully present to it. Chamunda can help us. She also brings an end to ignorance, not of not knowing, but knowing incorrectly, so we can see things as they really are and end the duality of mind.

Using a unified approach for addressing developmental and shock trauma, Julie’s work includes the latest neuroscientific findings, the imaginal realm and Eastern wisdom. Julie has a private practice in Laguna Beach CA. She also works on Skype/Facetime with individuals across the globe. 

Julie’s diverse 30-year background in spiritual, psychological and somatic traditions provides her with a unique depth of knowledge and experience. Julie’s dedicated spiritual practice and experience has embedded a deep passion for resolving trauma, cultivating compassion, and awakening in our fast-paced lives. She feels that through healing trauma, a profound sense of aliveness and vibrancy, as well as a personal sense of empowerment and coherence emerge in the body–mind. Both the individual psyche and the anima mundi (causal realm), are reenergized. This healing establishes in the individual a level of well-being that provides positive qualities of agency, a heart-centered capacity for presence and a sense of wholeness. 

Julie also supports those who are actively dying to awaken to the multilevel cosmos. She assists both her students and patients to open to deeper dimensions within the body/mind and the living universe to experience authentic vibrancy and joy.
