Regulate Your Nervous System, Overcome Your Triggers & Heal Your Soul


When you think about healing from trauma, what images come to mind? For many people, they might picture going to counseling or hitting the gym or going on a journey of self-reflection. While these can all be incredible tools to cope with our trauma, fully healing our bodies and minds from it often goes a lot deeper. 

Trauma manifests in our bodies and nervous systems in a variety of ways. It’s only through educating ourselves on the different levels and complexities of trauma that we’re able to better understand it, and make progress in healing from it.

My guest today is a leading expert on the treatment of trauma, and she’s going to show us how to get started and effectively navigate healing from our emotional wounds. Her name is Dr. Mariel Buqué and I’m so pumped to have her on the show to share her wisdom. And now, please help me welcome her to The School of Greatness!

“Abundance comes from being able to get into the depths of your soul.” @drmarielbuque  

Dr. Mariel Buqué is a Columbia University-trained Psychologist, intergenerational trauma expert, and the author of the upcoming book Break the Cycle: Shifting from Generational Trauma to Generational Abundance. 

She provides courses for healing difficult emotions and building healthy relationships and provides corporate wellness consultations to Fortune 100 companies including Google, Twitter, Capital One, and Facebook. She shares mental health tips with an online community of over 700K community members and has been featured on major media outlets including The Today Show, CNN, and ABC News.
