Trauma has touched all our lives in one way or another


This book presents a comprehensive scientific and spiritual approach to healing trauma that invites readers to access the power of the body as a way to build a capacity for self-regulation and emotion regulation as they move from post-traumatic stress toward post traumatic growth, and transform the dark side of trauma into body awareness, spiritual expansion, and a greater sense of vital aliveness and joy.

“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places,’ Ernest Hemingway wrote. In The Body Awareness Workbook for Trauma, Julie Brown Yau provides practical advice based in solid science on how the broken places can become stronger, and how they can heal. This book should be read widely—for who hasn’t experienced psychological or physical trauma in our tumultuous world?”

“In this comprehensive and deeply insightful guide, Julie has synthesized her vast knowledge and experience in working with trauma with a profound sense of grace and compassion. This is not a dry, theoretical book about trauma, but rather an essential companion for an inner inquiry into all the aspects in which trauma might be coloring the experience of ourselves, others and the world. This is a step-by-step guide for reclaiming our inherent aliveness and feeling at home in our bodies while authentically expressing our essential self."
