Havening in a Broken World Experience
July 11, 2019
Hosted by Gord Riddell with Co-Host Dr. Jan Hill
Today we welcome Ronn Young, Certified Traumatologist and President and CEO of the Havening Institute and Michelle Desroches, Registered Psychotherapist and on Faculty at Transformational Arts,and is one of the very few people certified by the Havening Institute. Think of creating a safe haven and that is exactly what havening is all about. It has to do with trauma and the devastating effects it can have on our brain and our life. Backed by science more so neuroscience, trauma derails the body’s ability to function: it altars the brains ability to address reality. Understanding the mind body connection, trauma impacts not simply behaviour but the way we do life. When traumatic things happen, a hyper-gamma wave is produced. The wave holds all the feelings and sensations causing us to re-enact the trauma withe the help of the Amygdala. Havening has found a way to interrupt the wave and the impact of our limbic system.

Things Worth Considering
Thursday at 5 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
This is a show about connections. Connections to your self, your spirit, your feelings and your story. We know one of the most powerful healing tools we have is our connections. Explore connecting to your intuition and those aha moments. Discover how we get in our own way and how we can overcome obstacles to move on. We will discover that how we think, what we believe, and our attitude defines how we experience our life. Fascinating is the idea that we shape our reality to what we believe it should be, in our minds. Connection to our families, our aging family members and becoming caregivers, not caretakers.
Reality of our self aging, not into senior citizens but embracing the archetypal Elder, the Wise One. Living the Spiritual idea of being of service but not feeling like someone’s servant. Moving forward, with our guests, we will connect to each other embracing the mysteries of life as we explore the many roads of the human journey and those will be things worth considering.
