Sex Spoken Here: After #metoo Recovering from Sexual assault
Welcome to my virtual therapy room! I am Dr Lori Beth Bisbey and this is Sex Spoken Here. Remember that this podcast deals with adult themes so if you don’t have privacy you might wish to put on your headphones.
Joining me today is Carolin Hauser-Carson, German trained Naturopathic Doctor, Humanistic Psychotherapist, and Family Constellations Facilitator, is the author of the book Blossom – 7 Steps to Sexual Healing and the upcoming book The Pleasure IQ. An internationally-recognized speaker and teacher on the subjects of spirituality, healing, and women’s empowerment for almost two decades, Carolin combines her knowledge to help women (and brave men) to have love-filled lives that flow with a sense of ease and amazing results. Her work is based on the intersection of where the human body and experience meets past–and even ancestral–trauma, and shows how each individual’s authentic and true self is the source of one’s own good – a place of unlimited abundance, creativity, courage, and joyful existence.
Carolin talked about the #metoo phenomena as being both helpful because shame has been lifted so that people can speak out but also sad because it seems to be polarizing men and women.
She talked about how trauma impacts your energy and your soul and that healing happens by healing your nervous system. She compared it to the electrical system melting or burning out as a result of the trauma. She spoke about the energy being leached away and causing chronic fatigue, autoimmune disease and exhaustion and that healing the trauma brings the energy back and heals the body so these conditions no longer cause exist.
She talked about her book Blossom which is a self-help book to engage in this type of healing. It starts with understanding the impact of trauma on the body, then learning to access feelings again and to feel them in the body. As the work moves on, there is a particular tool that heals heals the energy system and she spoke about how powerful this is. She said that using this every day has turned her entire life around.
Carolin does a lot of work with people in groups – and runs retreats each year. She spoke about the power of group work as people who are on similar journeys learn from each other, support each other and bear witness.
Carolin said that healing from trauma does not need to be complicated. And that putting one good tool into practice and doing it every day is enough. She likened it to going to the gym and working on your muscles and that doing this daily creates great sometimes monumental changes if one is persistent.
