Our integrative protocol is presented in our forthcoming book, "Reclaiming Life After Trauma" that will be published by Healing Arts Press in June 2018. This publication marks the first time an evidence-based, integrative, self-help approach to PTSD will be available to the general public. Our book is available for pre-order now.
Integrative Trauma Recovery Program
ITRP brings two state-of-the-art, evidence-based therapies to the treatment of PTSD: cognitive-behavioral therapy [CBT] and Kundalini yoga. Taught by recognized experts in their fields, the program offers cutting-edge recovery tools to anyone suffering from PTSD and other stressor-based disorders. The program is offered globally in a three-day intensive format.
Trauma imprints on both our bodies and our minds. This imprint, not the traumatic event itself, creates disorders like PTSD. CBT uncovers post-traumatic beliefs about ourselves and the world that limit our ability to feel security, joy and peace of mind. CBT then provides powerful tools to refashion old beliefs and self-defeating behaviors that link us to a painful past.
Trauma also is stored in the body's deep muscle groups which can then remain in a chronic state of tension. When this tension - an expression of the fight or flight response - becomes the body's new normal our physical and emotional health suffer. Kundalini yoga is a 4000 year old technology that regulates the relationship between body and mind, opening the way to the healing potential contained in each.

PTSD is one of several trauma- and stressor-related mental disorders diagnosed by clinicians. It affects about 9% of the general U.S. population and up to one third of combat veterans, victims of assault, rape and childhood abuse. It often includes symptoms such as those listed to the left, though any one of these may or may not be present in a particular person. Research suggests women may be more vulnerable than men and genetics may play a role in predisposing certain individuals to developing PTSD. All trauma-related disorders are now treatable, without medication, using cognitive-behavioral therapy and mind/body approaches such as yoga therapy.
