Healing From Past Pain and Trauma

red heart with bandages held in hands | Healing from Past Trauma using Nonviolent Communication

For some, healing from the past can take a lifetime, if it all. The practice of nonviolent communication dramatically eases and speeds this process. Participants will no longer need to struggle to achieve liberation and healing from the past.

For many, the journey from the head to the heart can be long. For some, a deep fear of what they may feel if they embark on such a journey prevents them from taking it at all. Nonviolent communication offers a safe path to personal empowerment and inner peace.

What You Will Learn

  • Move from self-loathing to self-acceptance—and self love
  • Free up frozen emotions
  • Have a deeper conversation with self
  • Change the filter of our current and past experiences
  • Find yourself expressing from the heart without even realizing how you got here
  • Let go of the fear attached to the “what if” conversation that can be paralyzing
  • The power of Self-Empathy
  • Remove the enemy images carried from past traumas and hurts
  • The power of self liberation

I have had the pleasure of participating in several workshops facilitated by Leslie Williamson. I have grown exponentially not only in my own healing journey, but Leslie’s programs have helped me manage more effectively with communication skills and interpersonal skills. I was manager of a restorative justice program with a first nations community for almost 8 years, and Leslie’s workshops not only helped me grow as a person and heal trauma that I had been carrying for years, but really provided opportunities within our own community and clients, to assist them, in their own healing journey. Leslie is an amazing facilitator who operates on heart and logic. I encourage you to take a chance and enrol in her programs, you will not be disappointed.
