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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Incredible book

I found Peter's book really helpful, the exercises are powerful and I could feel a shift just listening to his words. I'm glad he narrated it himself, as I could not listen to the awful narration on Waking the Tiger. I'm so glad I found this one!

Extremely Healing Content & Exercises!

I highly recommend this book for anyone healing from trauma. The exercises allow you to move through the physical symptoms which were locked in place when the traumatic incidents took places. By the end of the book, you’re left with fresh eyes. Almost as if seeing the world for the first time. Thank you so much, Peter Levine!

Book is good

I wanted to hear this book but couldn't get past the narration.
Too much hesitation in voice. tried many times, couldn't get past the first chapter.

Mind Blowing!

Learning about healing from trauma? This is must read! The audiobook is great for being able to easily go through the material, but I will be adding a hard copy with the workbook to my collection ASAP.
I love that Peter Levine has done the audio reading for this. He does a great job and reads at a nice speed to be able to grasp the lessons.
I will be relistening to this book right away. This mans material is a real gift that I can't wait to start applying to my everyday life and to the hurting people around me.

Different in many ways

Some might find their answers here, some not. I did and I feel lucky I found this book (by chance).

OMFG the narration is horrible.

This is a case where the author should've hired someone else to read the book. It's such a chore to listen to, I couldn't even finish it.

Very Informative and helpful

I found this book very informative and helpful. It’s so important to get in touch with our bodies as that’s where trauma is stored. I am on a journey of healing my trauma and helping others heal theirs. I will have to listen to it again as there was a lot to take in.

Good intro level book

The book did a good job describing the natural instincts related to trauma and response, and connecting it to the healing journey.
