Publisher's Summary

On Healing Trauma, respected therapist and teacher Peter A. Levine brings you face to face with his effective new treatment - not a "talking" cure, but a deep physiological process for releasing your past traumas and instilling a harmonious awareness of your body. Are you experiencing physical or emotional symptoms that no one is able to explain? If so, you may be suffering a traumatic reaction to a past event, teaches Levine. Medical researchers have known for decades that survivors of accidents, disaster, and childhood trauma often endure life-long symptoms ranging from anxiety and depression to unexplained physical pain and harmful "acting out" behaviors reflecting these painful events. As a young stress researcher at the university of California at Berkeley, Levine found that all animals, including humans, are born with a natural ability to rebound from these distressing situations.

    "New Neuroscience Applied"

    Peter Levine is the master when it comes to this Mindfulness stuff. I wish his other book about taming the tiger (forgive me for butchering the title) was on audio.

    Listening to him, in his own words, walk the listener through mindful exercises was surprisingly VERY helpful.
    I guess it shouldn't be surprising, it is all scientifically proven to help rewire the brain. However, to gain as much as I did from this audiobook is really noteworthy. This isn't just the science, it is the real deal. My therapist recommended this book and I swear she cut three years off her billing potential. Every time I practice these exercises, I feel notably more in control and resourceful to deal with what I thought was incurable PTSD.

    DO IT DO IT DO IT!

    "Somewhat misleading. Unfortunately."

    The title "Healing Trauma", which sells for much less than claimed here is actually a book with an accompanying CD that works through some guided imagery spiced with explanations from the author. However, all that is included here is apparently the CD which keeps referring to the supporting documents in the workbook -- the contents of which are NOT enclosed.

    This appears to be an omission specific to the offering through Audible. Actually I like Peter Levine's work. The contents of the CD seem in the spirit of his other works. The intellectual quality so far seems quite fine; the voice quality at times is a bit distorted (on #4 quality download) by the recording/duplicating process.

    For me, the primary problem is that for less than 1/2 of price claimed here you and I should be getting the full workbook plus the contents of the CD as they are intended to be a unit-- without the workbook the Audible recording is of more limited value. AND... if you purchase the workbook separately, for example on Amazon, then you get the CD anyway. Thus, there is no compelling reason to spend more money purchasing this audio file or use up a credit for it. Unfortunately I could not discern this problem from the limited product information provided in Audible's blerb.

    Very important topic. A highly qualified author who writes and speaks clearly, engagingly and with much hope. Alas, better sources for the combined book and CD elsewhere.

    "wonderfull. book of healing.
    "

    it was a wonderfull experience to read this book.
    it must be included in everybodi's must-read.

    practically makes us regain the old and wise ways by which human kind survive & thrive.

    even the book itself shows the way of becoming 'untifragile' which gains from trauma ...

    "Peter Levine's life work on trauma"

    I thought his theory would be more interdisciplinary but found this book to be limiting in reference to psychology. Dr Levine is a master of this content and you definitely feel his passion in resolving and healing trauma.

    "I resonate with the Wisdom of the Body..."

    Dr Levine has certainly worked for a long time to identify the issues with trauma and I resonate with the Wisdom of the Body and recommend this simple and direct audio book!
