Healing, Inherited Trauma, Mental Health, Sound Bath Healing, Trauma
I think it’s absolutely fascinating that a lot of the things we might be healing today… are not actually ours. You may have heard the words generational trauma, intergenerational trauma and collective trauma before – but what do they mean? How does this impact a person’s relational patterns, expansion, intimacy or growth? I am so excited for you to experience this week’s episode with the brilliant Dr. Mariel Buqué, a Columbia University-trained Psychologist, Intergenerational Trauma expert, and sound bath meditation healer. Her work focuses on the advancement of culturally responsive therapeutic practices that affirm the lived experiences of Black & Indigenous People of Color (BIPOCs). Her clinical work centers on healing wounds of intergenerational trauma, holistic mental wellness, and centering indigenous healing practices. We discuss the ways intergenerational trauma forms, caring for ourselves in a holistic way, healing from emotional wounds and how to transition into a liberated version of Self.
