Herbs and Somatic Practices for Stress, Trauma and Resilience
with Larken Bunce
Herbs and somatic practices pair powerfully to address the neuroendocrine, immunologic, and digestive dysregulations, as well as the emotional and spiritual challenges, associated with stressful and traumatic experiences and ongoing traumatizing conditions. Drawing on the latest insights in psychobiology and principles of trauma-informed care, we’ll explore the role plants and somatic skills can play in modulating the stress response, healing trauma, and building resilience. Simple, teachable practices will be shared, with rationale and indications for immediate application in the context of herbal practice.
