“Trauma is a part of life, not apart from life.”
At some point in life we will ALL experience some sort of trauma. We CAN start again, and move through trauma. Discover bigger meaning and purpose. In healing your own trauma and gaining perspective you can bring compassion and empathy to others better. Let go of the notion of taking others hurt on personally.
Are you looking to heal your trauma and experience a fuller life, or greater joy? Then this episode is for you! Dr. Gordon believes in the power of sharing our stories and lifting the veil on trauma, helping to heal and know ourselves better.
What showed up for you in your parenting journey? Trauma from the past that you didn’t know was there? Feelings of not being enough, unmet expectations, rejection? Dr Gordon shares his own parenting journey and feelings that showed up in that… such a powerful and vulnerable moment. He shares the moment of clarity to work through those feelings and find inventive ways to build a relationship ❤️
