The Trauma Care Audio Guided Meditations

Your Next Step in Healing (C)PTSD

Meditation for working through Post-Traumatic Stress isn’t about relaxing. It is about slowly guiding you back into the body, while at the same time helping you to hold enough space for yourself in awareness so that you can face what comes up for you.

As you grow into awareness your space opens up, clarity comes to you, and your suffering lessens.

These meditations take you beyond solid trauma-informed knowledge; they are your next step in working through the complexity of Trauma, PTSD, and CPTSD.

testimonial-011I have used more traditional meditation for a long time to help in managing CPTSD, but have often found these can be too confronting if I am in a particularly vulnerable place. Roland’s trauma care meditations are a brilliant alternative that offers ways to work at a more or less intense level depending on how I feel each day. These audios are really helping to get the CPTSD back under control and significantly reducing the impact it has on my day to day life. Thank you Roland. – Clare, New Zealand

Meditations That Are Designed to Guide and Invite You, Slowly on, Step by Step, into Embodiment

You will likely start out on your healing journey by reading about Post-Traumatic Stress in order to understand your reactions and symptoms.

Solid knowledge helps to create a healthy cognitive framework. It provides a roadmap that guides your attempts to understand what you are going through, and how to lessen any blame, guilt or self-reproach you might have formed as a reaction to your symptoms.

Where Cognitive Work Ends and Emotional Work Begins

Cognitive work is essential, but it doesn’t necessarily shift anything on an emotional level.

On the other hand, working with a counselor or therapist individually might still be too daunting. To talk about and work through trauma– and especially trauma which happened during childhood– can be very challenging.

The Trauma Care Audio Guided Meditations Are Designed to Fill This Gap

These guided meditations address in depth the various aspects of dissociation; anger, sadness, or anxiety, symptoms of collapse, exhaustion and fatigue, hyperactivity, control, boundaries and vulnerability, and the fight-flight-freeze responses.

They will guide you towards feeling the sensations of your body once again– by slowly regulating your reentry– and will help you connect to your body sensations and how they relate to your particular symptoms.

Roland Signature

testimonials-013These trauma care meditations have helped me to get back in touch with my body, emotions, and senses and are informative and interesting. Roland’s approach is compassionate and patient, and the gentle, guiding process helps me to feel safe, relaxed and confident. The explanation and guidance on control, anxiety, and resistance was an eye opener for me as I wasn’t even aware of all the control and resistance I was exercising. – Helen, Australia

How Do These Meditations Work?

There is a deliberate sequence to these meditations: They start from the head and from there– slowly on– bring you back into the body by:

  1. Addressing disconnection and dissociation, the head and the busyness of thought;
  2. Working with the fight, flight and freeze activation, and illustrating how they relate to tensions in the neck, back of the head, and the adrenals and kidneys;
  3. Slowly moving further into the body by going into the heart and the chest area, allowing the feeling, weight, heaviness, and sadness to be felt and brought into awareness, to help you process emotional residue;
  4. Helping you work through anxiety, self-image, fatigue, depression and boundaries related to the liver, diaphragm, solar plexus, kidneys and the lower-back area; and
  5. Inviting you to safely engage with silence, while managing healthy boundaries and allowing vulnerability.

testimonial-012I love to meditate, but it is difficult for me to avoid spacing out or getting overwhelmed by deep emotions. Your meditations help me to become balanced, being present, and not going too deep or get lost. Thank you for putting in so much effort, also with the email-reminders and short articles. I find them very clear and helpful. – Amber, Germany

testimonials-014I’ve always wanted to use meditation to my benefit. But, I was afraid because I didn’t know what I was doing and with severe disassociation, I knew I needed to be careful. The best thing about Roland’s meditations is that they are simple and efficient, and they don’t overwhelm you. I still have a long way to go, but they are teaching me how to sit with my emotions. To be able to acknowledge them and not, as before, push them away gives me back some power. I believe it’s the beginning of my healing process. I haven’t felt hope in a long time, and I can’t hold onto it for long, but just knowing it’s still there for me is amazing. – Kristin, USA

ReginaA huge part of why I appreciate your theory is that you do have to start where you are when it comes to meditation; you can’t force yourself to start somewhere else. It always annoyed me that all other meditations I had looked at online ALWAYS instructed you where to start, as though one can just flick a switch and feel differently. It would be like logging into Google maps for directions and having the system tell you that you CAN’T start from your house if you want to get to “x”; you have to start somewhere else, but not telling you how to GET to the place where you need to start. Having said that, I’m glad that you emphasize this point over and over, and provide directions from the natural starting point. – Regina, USA
