Sample Chapters: 

An abridged, easier to read version of the full book. It covers the core exercises and concepts in the body-centered approach I have developed for working with abuse recovery. The work is based on the ideas that powerlessness is the core of the trauma wound, and that growth and healing must be anchored by tangible experience of success in controlling the environment. The book focuses on practical, step-by-step exercises which show how to work with breathing, muscle tone, posture, movement and intention to develop body awareness, power, love, effective boundaries, and safety. 150 pages. (Also available in German as a paper book. Das Lächeln der Freiheit: Sebststärkung und Körperbewusstsein—Ein Leitfaden zur Traumabewältigung)
