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.

Best book I've ever listened to

What did you like most about Healing Trauma?

Made more sense than any other self help book I've read. No hype or BS, just great, useful information.

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.

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.

Like being on the couch in real time.

I really liked the pace of the book with the authors narration. I felt I learned a lot and will be listening over again to fully absorb the knowledge of gentle and natural in-built body wisdom that is God given. Levine leaves space for the spiritual dimension which I could adapt into prayer. I am not sure that I agree fully with his conclusions at the end but that didn't detract from the listen.
