A lecture from Lisa Loustaunau
Trauma takes many forms. Educator and Core Energetics Somatic Practitioner, Lisa Loustaunau, focuses on the elements of non-characterological or shock-trauma, a trauma that overlays and distorts an already formed personality, distinguishing it from childhood trauma that occurs while the child’s body and personality are still in formation. Techniques are presented that support the energy system to increase emotional and energetic resilience and expand the individual’s capacity for pleasure in living are explained. This video features explanatory segments combined with slides and brief video clips from feature movies that show trauma symptoms in movie characters and is intended for educational purposes.

This is a documentary about the life and work of David Bohm.
When we think about quantum theory we open ourselves for the unthinkable, the infinite expansion of reality.
The question this physicist is trying to explore is “what is reality”. You will be taken on a journey of the impossible collaboration with the Newtonian physicists into the most subtle force of quantum potential. Quantum potential are particles that exists everywhere in the universe and are interconnected.
Through the life and work of David Bohm you learn about the importance of quantum theory for our work and life.
When we think of our work and look back into history, we see that Freud’s ego theory about the drives, how the forces of id upon the ego gave pressure, was in fact a Newtonian way to explain the mind. When we see the mind as an emerging property regulating the flow of energy and information, than in fact quantum rules may apply. One of those aspects in our life is: probability rather than certainty, impermanence rather than permanency, mortality rather than immortality.
A quantum way of living, thinking and working can help us to expand and stretch our mind to embrace the unknown and the infinite potential and possibility to connect.
