Resolving Trauma + Expanding Resilience
Trauma Resolution- what is it? Can we ever be fully resolved of our trauma? The key may lie in the connection you hold to your body and its truth.
My guest this week is an incredible expert in the field of somatic trauma healing, Denise Chang. Denise is a queer enby femme, somatic trauma resolution guide, and co-creator of consensual culture- a community collective and relational healing ecology for trauma resolution and QTBIPOC liberation.
Denise is an immigrant of Malaysian-Chinese decent, who came to the U.S. at age 21 to attend college. After experiencing the American culture of self expression and sexuality, Denise discovered repressed trauma and shame in their heart that would lead them to learning more about how they could learn to trust themself as they uncovered layers leading to their true self.
The discovery of the layers of protection around their heart due to the conditioning and messaging they received around their identities gave Denise the clue they needed to begin exploring the spiral path through the parts of themself that needed more love, more attention, to simply be met and held.
This journey took Denise deep into the realms of somatic trauma healing where they learned that when the conditions are safe enough for us to express, our bodies respond and we can find deep healing and authenticity.
In this week’s episode, Denise brings their wisdom of somatic trauma resolution, spiritual embodiment and the uncanny ability to sense systems of oppression that exist within our culture and relational field to light.
