Emancipate Your Mind: 028: Somatic Experiencing and the Release of Trauma with MindBody Mentor, Shawna Kathleen

  • by

Today we’re diving into the practice of somatic experiencing as a way to help locate and release trauma in the body. 

MindBody Mentor, Shawna Kathleen, talks about her own experience with autoimmune disease, relationship abuse, and sexual trauma and how learning to use somatic feedback from her body allowed her to begin alchemizing the pent up trauma from her past and turning it into something that has expanded her personal and business life. 

She’s a speaker, the owner of GoldMind, the host of GoldMind Podcast and a self proclaimed nerd who loves ancient culture, biohacking, nutrition and anything with animals.

She’s been taking clients through somatic mind-body work for 3 years and doesn’t plan on stopping.

For more information on how to follow all of Shawna’s incredible work or to work more in depth with her, find all of her information here at this link:

Don’t forget, in the episode, Shawna offered half price somatic sessions for those who listened to the podcast and want further help with moving trauma through the body. Discount Code: SOMATIC


I’ve just released a brand new self-paced program called “Reclaim Your Identity”. The 5 weeks of modules take you through the process that has helped dozens of my clients begin to reconnect with themselves and begin feeling confident making decisions from their own inner wisdom. The group also comes with live coaching support on Zoom and in a private Facebook group with others also reconnecting with their authentic identities.

If you’d like to be part of an online community where we take the podcast topics and pull them apart for discussion and further learning, talk about all the religious transition things, and just enjoy each other’s company, join my free “Emancipate Yourself” Facebook group at this link:
