In this episode, based on Jules' background in Transpersonal Psychology and understanding of psychospiritual transformation - Jules share the perspective that experiences of trauma can often be a catalyst for our psychospiritual growth and awakening as Highly Sensitive People.
Jules discusses how the traits of high sensitivity can mean HSP are more prone to the impact of their environment and dysregulation of our nervous system.
Inspired by the teaching of Gabor Mate, Bessel Van der Kolk, and Peter Levine she touches upon what Gabor refers to as the 'wisdom of trauma' and share how trauma, can result in a 'breaking open' and without negating the challenges. She share the perspective that trauma can move us closer to the divine and a connection with the spiritual; often resulting in awakening. She draws on the concept of the wounded healer and the importance of leaning towards, rather than moving away from our difficulties.
