Trauma can be anything that hurts us such as mistreatment from others, accidents, natural disaster, physical and emotional abuse and accumulated stress. It is a biological, unconscious physical condition that freezes us in time, it keeps us stuck, attached to the past and unable to move forward in life.(From Seminar by Dr. Paul Canali, May 2009)
It is the source of chronic pain, disease, suffering, fear, and anxiety. It is the main reason why people don’t heal from any condition.
Understanding how it affects each and every one of us is the most important secret that any therapist or human being can learn.
