Amazing book that gives a good framework for the HOW in processing and dispelling trauma. I have read some great books on theory and the biology of trauma, but Azita took it one step further to breakdown what to actually do to move through trauma into a place of thriving.
I've been on a healing path for a long time. After reading many books in this genre, this is the first book that spoke directly to me and laid out a blueprint for healing.
The way Dr. Nahai wrote the book made it easy for me to digest. She is honest, open and real. The book helped some old stuff flow out of me. I was able to process, understand and be cool with items that I had not been able to even comprehend.
Dealing with Trauma is not an easy task for anyone. I'm grateful I was able to find and connect with this book. It helped me more than I could have imagined. I will continue to use the template laid out in the book as I move forward on my path.
This book is the real deal. Dr. Nahai's research and experience in the field of trauma is shared beautifully in this book and she provides real tools to use every day while working through the post-traumatic growth process. You do not have to be a yogi to benefit from her teachings but you might find a few new meditations and exercises that you didn't know you needed in your life. I cannot recommend this enough.
5.0 out of 5 starsPerfect blend of memoir and self-help

Full of vulnerability, this memoir / self-help book inspired me to go deep within myself. I loved the mini "assignments" at the end of each chapter that forced me to stop, think, apply what I had learned to myself, and write about it.
This book is amazing for those who have personally been through trauma or work with people who have gone through trauma. The author was honest and genuine and relatable. I’m so glad I stumbled upon this book!!

For anyone who is experiencing pain and unable to find a way to stop the cycle of depression, this is a fascinating and inspiring read. The book is a first person account of Dr. Azita Nahai and how she stopped a cycle of trauma from an abusive boyfriend and having issues of self-worth to find her way in the world and turn her pain into purpose. The author outlines a valuable how-to-guide about the way to use breathing, meditation, and yoga to convert your nervous energy into kinetic energy and feel empowered as a result. Although I don't have the level of trauma that Dr. Nahai went through, I have started using some of these techniques and found it to be very helpful in my own life. We all have our baggage to deal with...and this book inspired me to take some necessary changes in my own life. The book has a lot of valuable take away information and the personal anecdotes make it all that much more interesting than a typical self-help book. Get the book, take a breath, change your life.
So grateful to have come across this book. I found it gave me skills to work through being triggered, to healing, to moving from fear to trust and guiding me back home to my authentic self. Huge thank you to the author for creating this life changing piece.
