I am very close to finishing our long-awaited Transforming Trauma program.  This program has been years in the making, but most specifically during the past two years. How exciting to be wrapping it up in order to share with you. It will release March 29, 2019.

Transforming Trauma is a virtual program focused on cultivating a positive relationship with your body through mindfulness, breathing and gentle yoga poses. These are a few of the tools you can readily access on your #healingforward journey. It will include audio and video tutorials; love and grace.

I am going to provide a basic understanding of PTSD, the confusion and pain of life's trauma, guided meditations, demonstrations of yoga poses and short, gentle yoga sequences. (pst... more women suffer with PTSD than men.)

I will cover ways we mask our pain, the mental confusion, and how unresolved trauma continues to impact our daily lives, relationships and living authentically.

However, I need your help. Before I finalize Transforming Trauma and send it to you, I want to make sure I have addressed your needs.

This is where YOU come in. Please take a moment to answer this super short survey. Your opinion matters. You are priceless!

What are your top two concerns about transforming trauma I absolutely need to address?

Do you currently meditate or is meditation new to you?

Would you prefer a live, virtual yoga nidra session or prerecorded?

Are you interested in being part of a healthy community that will celebrate with you?

Respond in the comments or email me at

Remember, we launch March 29 so I need to hear back from you today.

    Meditation is new to me. Self guided yoga preferred at this time.

      It is actually quite common to prefer private, self guided yoga and meditation; especially when they are new experiences. This is one of the beauties of Transforming Trauma, privacy to explore reduces intimidation around learning. When we are able to reduce inhibitions, we can be real with ourselves and allow transformation. We can remove the social masks, extend love and grace to ourselves and heal forward. Thank you for your insight Cindy.

    I do not meditate. When I do, I have ‘monkey mind’ and find it hard to concentrate. I have not found a time or place to meditate. I would like to do this in the evening, however I am not alone in my room at night and I do not have time to meditate in the morning.
    I don’t know about yoga. Maybe self guided.

    Congratulations on this program!

    • Regina Rowley on December 22, 2017 at 7:31 pm

      Thank you Marla. It is very exciting to be at this point in the journey.

      Monkey mind is common. I will certainly be discussing this and ways to extend grace to ourselves while meditating. We will also cover making space/time for self-care. I guide the yoga with cues, you will have the opportunity to follow the cues in the comfort of your home. Have you been to any yoga classes before?

    PTSD and Triggers need to be addressed.

    I meditate and prefer self-guided.

    • Regina Rowley on December 22, 2017 at 7:26 pm

      Very good Raquel. We certainly will address them.
      Do you use a particular type, when you meditate? Tonglen? Single Thought? etc.

    My personal trauma is pronounced in my life via an eating disorder that I still struggle with. I think addressing positive body image is a brilliant idea. I am still exploring this part of my life because I have only recently come to realize and accept that I have an ED. I am continuing to learn what my life is without my ED and dissect my decisions and reasons to why I feel this way. One of the things I learned is my eating disorder manifests itself because I don’t know how to properly express my emotions and I use it as a way to gain control in my life. I think addressing healthy ways to properly identify and express different emotions and this idea of control would be very useful. Especially to women who are struggling with lack of control in their life.

      Thank you Ali,
      For some reason, the security feature ‘failed’ the comment and trashed it. I retrieved it and I saw your email. I’m grateful you took the extra moment to ensure I received your comments.
      As previously shared, I understand the challenge and will certainly be including information for identifying and expressing our emotions in a healthy way.
      Healthy, positive body image and mental talk are among the topics in Transforming Trauma. You are miles ahead of many Ali, who never stop to consider, let alone discover, the underlying current of their life choices. I’m excited for you.

    I think that you are developing a very important program. I think it might be helpful to give participants additional information for support, like links to information on counseling or even rape crisis or suicide hotlines. If it is on the web someone could stumble across your information and need immediate help, which the links would provide. Once that person was stable then they could come back to your program. I also agree that it would be helpful to discuss how PTSD is understood. I would guess some folks have PTSD and don’t even know it. I have tried both guided and individual mediation. I love both, but am more likely to stick with meditation with support. I’m excited to see this program develop!

    • Regina Rowley on January 4, 2018 at 11:41 am

      Wonderful suggestions Amy! We will get those added to the sight and ensure the links are in the Transforming Trauma course. You are absolutely right in your guess. I was one of those people. I spent decades of my life without knowing I was dealing with PTSD. In fact, it was only somewhere during the last years I even vocalized I was a survivor… Knowledge leads to options… We are grateful for your insight and appreciate you taking a moment to share your thoughts. Stay tuned. We too are excited to be developing this course. We will let you know when it’s ready. Namaste!

    What are your top two concerns about transforming trauma I absolutely need to address?
    Loving ourselves no matter what we have faced

    Do you currently meditate or is meditation new to you?
    I currently meditate and thoroughly enjoy it, it puts me in an calm and stress free mood instantly.

    Would you prefer a live, virtual yoga nidra session or prerecorded? Either way would be fantastic….I will follow yoga nidra in any fashion

    Are you interested in being part of a healthy community that will celebrate with you? Absolutely <3

      Thank you Annie! I completely agree with you. Loving ourselves no matter what is paramount to #healingforward and is part of Transforming Trauma. Meditation truly does help us reduce every day stress as well as the stress still in our bodies after traumatic experiences. It is beautiful to see you loving yourself and using the tools which help you. See you soon. Namaste.
