Hosted by Kristen Timchak          

Show Notes


One of the reasons for doing self care is to build resilience.  When you are more resilient you are able to move through life with more flexibility.  We all have traumatic experiences big and small at some point in our lives, but when we cultivate resilience we can find a more graceful process of healing from trauma.

In this week's episode with Efan Hsieh we get into some of the nuances of trauma and post traumatic growth.  Efan  is a certified functional health coach, Biology of Trauma professional, and nature connection guide who facilitates retreats around the world. She shares tools for adventurous empaths to regulate their nervous system, maintain mindbody coherence, and connect deeply and authentically to nature and their True Self so they can go from burned out to thriving.

In this episode:

  • What trauma is and isn't
  • What it means to heal from trauma
  • The tension between authenticity and attachment
  • How to trust your intuition
  • Somatics and nature connection for regulating the nervous system, building resilience and healing trauma
