If Carolyn had edited the talk - to just include the most important points about how to transform trauma, the information would be practical and applicable.
To not include statements like "you will be retraumatized... you will experience trauma again and again and again".
To focus on heart centeredness - and deliver the talk from there, and slow down enough to choose words carefully, and allow the listener to fall into the softness of what they are hearing (which is healing) - instead of be walloped by the blows of Carolyn's unedited mind ramblings.
Carolyn frequently went on and on about material that seemed to be very much about her personality in how it showed up in the delivery of this material instead of focusing to the point of what actually does transform trauma.
For myself, someone who experinced a lot of trauma, and has worked through much of it... it only restirs the nervous system to hear someone go on about how we will experience trauma over and over, or to include any other graphic illustrations regarding trauma.
I didn't yet get to James in his narration, but I would have chosen different words rather then a different narrator.
Free from suffering
The support that Yongey received from the Tibetan Buddhis Community.
Would have liked Youngey to have focused more on "how to meet all these aspects of mind", more then the scientific part, and I realize that some folks want their minds to understand, more then they want the actual liberation of a teaching.
