I feel really sad, y’all. All over the Internet, I keep seeing posts that are essentially denying healing to men — especially straight, white men.

body image coach holly toronto

Bonus 25: Noticing the Voice in Your Head

There’s been a theme happening this week with my clients around the voice in our heads. When a theme occurs in my 1:1 coaching work, I always pay attention. Usually, the theme isn’t just for my clients’ healing; it’s also for mine — if I’m willing to look at what my clients reflect back to […]

Episode 67: 9 Free Ways to Support Your Nervous System (solo episode)

I am passionate about nervous […]

Episode 66: Listening to Your Body — Your Cravings, Need for Rest, Intuition, ALL OF IT with Caroline Dooner

Let’s talk about your nervous system with a bucket analogy… A lot of people’s buckets are full because they’ve been sitting under the leaky ceiling, collecting water without anyone emptying the bucket or replacing a small bucket with a bigger one. Need me to keep elaborating? So, a lot of people have been chasing symptoms […]

Bonus 23: Somatic Tracking for Pain, Anxiety, & Body Connection

In this bonus episode, I’m sharing the practice I used to heal anxiety. At the time I started doing this practice, I didn’t have a name for it. I just called it “being with my body’s sensations”. Then, in 2021, I read a book called The Way Out by Alan Gordon. In this book, he […]

Episode 65: The Physiological Effects of Chronic Stress & Healing Your Nervous System with Dr. Jennifer Love

Chronic stress has real effects on our physiology. From elevating stress hormones like cortisol to creating inflammation in our bodies that leads to autoimmune disease, “mental illness”, reproductive issues, and more, chronic stress dysregulates our nervous systems just as much as “Big T” trauma. I discovered this truth in 2019 when I began learning about […]

Episode 64: When Crisis Strikes with Dr. Jennifer Love

Crazy enough, my guest on this episode — Dr. Jennifer Love — and her co-author Dr. Kjell Hovik were in the process of writing their book, When Crisis Strikes, BEFORE the Pandemic hit. In December of 2020, their book was released, providing a practical blueprint for getting through crisis — whatever the crisis is. Obviously, […]

Bonus 22: The Messages I’m Receiving from the Universe Right Now

I didn’t know what this episode was going to be about. I’ve learned that not knowing usually means WAIT. Wait and see. Wait to hear. Wait. Don’t react. Nothing is urgent. Just wait. And when I lean in to the waiting, the answer almost always comes quickly. As I was falling asleep last night (12/26), […]

Episode 63: Holistic Pelvic Health with Kate Coletti

Pelvic health care is one of my favorite tools in my trauma-healing toolbox. Pelvic health care, including pelvic floor physical therapy, is part of my daily Nervous System Hygiene practice. Due to messages from religion, shame surrounding menstruation, and society’s taboos about the female body, I was disconnected from my pelvis and pelvic floor for […]

This Week’s Guest Honor Schauland is a community organizer, anthropologist, director of our local community center, master apple tree-climber, and my real-life best friend.

In this first-ever bonus Q & A episode, I’m tackling these questions: Am I making the best healing decision to set big boundaries with my family or am I running away, avoiding triggers, and missing an opportunity to heal? How do I heal my Mother Wound and move forward? Is there a way to make […]

Bonus 19: Anxiety — Do You React or Respond? (+ Thoughts on Consciousness & Surrender)

Oof. It’s been a month. A great month. And an exhausting one. I’ve spent all of November 2021 creating, manifesting, writing, marketing, and then teaching a new workshop, Nervous System 101. Some of our Circle members attended NSYS101, and it was so nice and comforting to have some familiar faces/names in the Zoom room. So, […]

Episode 60: Why Learning About Your Nervous System Might Be the Most Important Thing You Ever Do (solo episode)

For over a decade, I hopped from practitioner to practitioner, spent thousands of dollars on supplements, and cut whole food groups out of my diet. Not a single healthcare provider ever talked to me about my nervous system and how trauma affects it. Once I learned about how my nervous system works, how my brain […]

Bonus 18: How Our Thoughts Create Our Reality & How to Change Your Reality

I believe we create our reality. The good, the bad, the ugly, all of it. I also know that most people are creating their realities unconsciously — from the ego. In his book A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle writes, The ego is not only the unobserved mind, the voice in the head which pretends to […]

Episode 59: Trigger Warning — This Episode Is About the Self-Responsibility of Facing Triggers (solo episode)

This is the one-year anniversary episode of the Holistic Trauma Healing Podcast!

I don’t believe they’re bad or for avoiding; I believe our […]

Bonus 17: A Conversation About Panic (& How Cold Plunges Helped Me Train for an MRI)

I had an MRI on Thursday, October 7. Would you understand what I mean if I told you that I feel like doing cold plunges and other exercises that require leaning into discomfort helped me “train” for an MRI? You see, I’ve always been very claustrophobic. Not in elevators or closets. It’s when I can’t […]

Episode 58: The Episode for Empaths & Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) with Kristen Schwartz

Several years ago, I learned that I would be classified as a “Highly Sensitive Person” or HSP. (Yes, this is really a thing.) Learning this about myself felt so validating.

Bonus 16: You’re Comfortable Being Uncomfortable… But Can You Be Comfortable Being Comfortable, Too?

Lindsey cold plunging in Lake Superior

I’m pretty sure the official motto of the Trauma Healers Circle is… “I am comfortable being uncomfortable.” And, while healing is absolutely about widening our windows of tolerance so we can live fuller lives without needing to be rigid or restrictive with ourselves, there’s value in being comfortable, too. In fact, I think I haven’t […]

Episode 56: On Integrity, the Cancel Mob, & Boundaries on Social Media with Lux ATL

stripper with a Ph.D. Lux ATL

I started following Lux in 2020 and immediately fell in love with her “don’t give no fucks” attitude.

During the winter of 2020, I jumped at the chance to take her Social Media with Boundaries workshop. And then I knew I […]

Bonus 15: It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to… Control

Feeling like you need to control everything is a doozy, y’all.

Episode 53: Exploring Your Purpose & Remaining in Question with Dr. Janine Kreft

Sometimes, we truly have to get to a level of such pain, disgust, and discomfort with our lives and choices to wake up to the truth that our conscious and unconscious choices have created our reality all along. This is consciousness, and it’s the only way to create a new reality for ourselves. When we […]

Bonus 14: Inner Child 101 in 45 Minutes with Evelyn Hale

I totally forgot that Bonus Episode 12 was also about the Inner Child when I invited our very own Circle member Evelyn to record this bonus episode with me… That also happens to be about the Inner Child.

I am so new to learning about the realm of the Soul, and my guests’s work has been integral to this new aspect of my journey. Learning about the work of my Soul, soul contracts and lessons, the Akashic Records, and past lives has been so healing for me — because I now understand that […]

Episode 51: No One Is Disposable (solo episode)

This Week’s Oracle Card Solo Episode! Lindsey Lockett is a trauma coach and educator and host of the Holistic Trauma Healing Podcast. […]

Bonus 13: Do You Treat Your Inner Child Like a Stepchild? (+ How I Am Actively Re-Parenting Myself)

Treat your pain as a hurt child you are trying to comfort, not as a stepchild — always demanding and begging it to speak to you and tell you what it wants and why it’s misbehaving. Have you tried that on a kid? Or had it tried on you? You were hurting and confused and […]

Episode 50: Your Sacred Self — Personal Sovereignty & Responsibility with Madison Morrigan

leadership coach madison morrigan

Self-responsibility is the gateway to self-sovereignty. What happened to you wasn’t your fault or your choice.. It wasn’t fair. And yet, your own choice to heal is the only way. That requires radical responsibility. No one can do it for you. Contrary to what your hurting Inner Child might believe, getting an apology from whoever […]

Bonus 12: Can We Heal in an Unhealthy Environment or Relationship?

A member of the Trauma Healers Circle recently asked a hard question: Can you heal in the same environment or relationship that’s making you sick? Whew. That’s tough. There is so much complexity in a question like this, particularly if the relationship is a spouse or partner and you have kids, finances, a house, etc. […]

Episode 49: Calling Back the Fragmented Parts of Ourselves with Holly Toronto

body image coach holly toronto

I had never heard the phrase “fragmented parts of ourselves” until I met Holly. Her message is all about women calling back the fragmented parts of ourselves — the parts we had to piece off to fit in, to please, to be good, to be desirable. We’ve been taught by our culture, our mothers, the […]

Bonus 11: Ashley Wood Opens the Akashic Records of the Trauma Healers Circle

I am brand-new to exploring the Akashic Records (aka library of souls), but my guest isn’t! In fact, she read the Akashic Records of over 700 people before releasing her course, How to Read the Akashic Records with The Pinnacle. Now, she teaches you how to read your own Akashic Records or how to create […]

Episode 48: Consciousness Is So Much Bigger Than Social Justice with Janira Martinez

desire coach Janira Martinez

This episode is ON FIRE, y’all! There’s some discrepancy in the current mainstream social justice narrative. The cancel culture, binary thinking, shaming of white people, and more is NOT how we’re going to move forward and finally eradicate the symptoms of our collective trauma: poverty, racism, homophobia, transphobia, consumerism, the destruction of our planet, war, […]

Episode 47: Sexual Trauma & Healing, Spirituality, & Soul Growth with Ally Gayle

sexuality and sensuality coach Ally Gayle

This episode was originally intended to be all about sexual trauma and healing, but as per usual, it flowed into something else! My guest Ally Gayle and I do talk about sexual trauma (we have a LOT to say about trauma comparison), but then we go deeper into spirituality and soul growth. It doesn’t matter […]

Episode 46: Exploring Human Design with Melissa Kirk

In this episode, my guest Melissa Kirk — a Human Design, manifestation, and Theta Healing expert — explore Human Design! Human Design is NOT another personality profile test, like the enneagram or Myers-Briggs. In Human Design, you don’t have to answer questions about yourself; it’s completely based on your day, time, and place of birth. […]

Episode 45: On Self-Trust, Rest, & Other Good Stuff

In this solo episode, Lindsey discusses self-trust. Self-trust is THE key to unlocking our healing. We can’t and won’t heal unless we trust ourselves to heal. Likewise, we also won’t rest, change gears, take risks, set boundaries, start something new, or think critically without self-trust. Holistic Trauma Healing work will ALWAYS direct you back to […]

Bonus 10: Chatting About Psychedelics with Mike Govoni

Psychedelic medicines have been a powerful catalyst for my healing journey. Psychedelics also have the potential to stall healing journeys as well. I definitely don’t recommend them for everyone, and I believe they should be approached with great care and intention. For me, there is nothing recreational about psychedelics at all. My guest Mike Govoni […]

Bonus 9: Mom Guilt Doesn’t Serve a Purpose + a Beautiful Guided Visualization with Jeremy Tan

Remember Jeremy from episode 39? He’s here with a vulnerable and raw bonus episode. We talk at length about relating with our own parents, as well as my experience with raising a teenage son who I have felt increasingly distant from.

Episode 43: The Deeper Work of Addiction Recovery with Mike Govoni

addiction recovery specialist Mike Govoni

All healing is self-healing, a journey back home to ourselves. So, anything is an opportunity to awaken consciousness: illness, addiction, divorce, a death, financial struggle, parenting, a move, a relationship — literally anything and everything is an opportunity to awaken consciousness. A big take-away from this episode for me is that there is a difference […]

Episode 42: The Trouble with Binary Belief Systems (special solo episode!)

lindsey lockett laying on a colorful rug holding her phone and smiling

SPECIAL LATE-NIGHT SOLO EPISODE! I’m not normally a night owl, but the energy of late May-early June have been intense. Rather than feeling sleepy at 10pm, I’m wide awake… and not in an anxious, thoughts racing kind of way. It’s a peaceful, but inspired awake. And, I’ve felt like taking a lot of inspired action […]

Episode 41: Addiction & Recovery — Consciousness Prevents Relapse with Mike Govoni

addiction recovery specialist Mike Govoni

Alcoholics and addicts are people, too. It’s easy to judge them for the destruction and harm they cause due to their behavior. But, addiction is the result of a traumatized person doing the best they can to regulate a dysregulated nervous system. Alcoholism and addiction are not about the substances. They’re about what the person […]

Episode 40: How to Tell the Difference Between Intuition & Fear with Chelsea Horton

chelsea horton, CEO of Healing Embodied, wearing a blue dress having an intimate moment with her husband Matt

There is no question that trauma is stored in the body. We know this from the work of people like Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk and Stephen Porges. So many of us live in our heads all the time because being in our bodies is too uncomfortable. But something else besides trauma also lives in […]

Bonus 8: Solar Storms & Eclipses & Retrogrades, Oh My! with Tammy Antoinette

lindsey lockett crouching on a bed of green moss

I just loooooooove it when resident astrologer Tammy Antoinette joins me on the podcast! This time, we had a little chat about the intense energies of the month of May 2021. On May 12, 2021, a G3-level solar storm hit Earth. If you have experienced brain fog, increased sensitivity to lights or sounds, fatigue, vivid […]

Episode 39: From Trauma to Purpose — Astrology & the Inner Child with Jeremy Tan

psychological astrologer Jeremy Tan @sacred_saturn

Would it surprise you to learn that there are hints about our traumas in our astrological charts? I’m still surprised by this, but also comforted. To know that where various stars and planets sit in our charts may provide clues or even answers about our childhoods, mother and/or father wounds, how we react to systems […]

Bonus 7: Food Addiction, Hyperpalatable Foods, & Whether Any of That Matters if We’re Being Present with Dr. Maria Paredes

lindsey lockett holding a fork with a brussels sprout and smiling

This is the remainder of the episode I recorded with trauma-informed eating disorder therapist Dr. Maria Paredes. As always, I saved the juiciest part for you, Circle members. I have recently become aware of the term “hyperpalatable foods”. As a certified health coach and former health food blogger, I thought I had heard it all […]

Episode 38: Disordered Eating as an Adaptation of the Nervous System & Listening to the Body with Kindness & Curiosity with Dr. Maria Paredes

eating disorder therapist dr. maria paredes

Addiction, eating disorders, and any other form of self-harm are adaptations of a dysregulated nervous system to cope — to create faux windows of tolerance to feel safe in an unsafe environment. The body must respond, however, to the trauma of food restriction on a cellular level. Constantly assessing the threat of food restriction is […]

Episode 37: Healing Trauma Is Different for Women: How to Access Your Inner Predator & Develop a Healthy Fight Response with Kimberly Ann Johnson

author, somatic practitioner, & teacher kimberly ann johnson

Women heal differently than men. The origins and foundations of how we’ve looked at bodies and at healing, from religion to medicine to fitness, have been established by men. In Western medicine, the male body has long been the standard, the one that procedures and drugs are designed for and tested on. In yoga, postures […]

Episode 36: Deconstructing & Deconverting from Religion, Religious Trauma, & Setting Boundaries with Religious Loved Ones with The Reclamation Collective

reclamation collective founder and therapist kendra snyder

Deconstructing your religious, spiritual, or political beliefs is not a betrayal of your community. Deconstruction of an ideology, dogma, or belief system is any reassessment, re-evaluation, and/or reconsideration of your beliefs. Deconstruction is a beautiful evolution of learning, growing, and having the flexibility and capability to change your mind. There is no framework for learning, […]

Bonus 6: Be Your Own Fucking Alchemist with Bethany Russell

I originally recorded this episode for the public podcast, but something told me to save it just for The Circle. I think I am dealing with some of my own Imposter Syndrome or maybe just fear about posting on what I perceive to be “sensitive” topics. Although I believe with every fiber of my being […]

Episode 35: The Spiritual Abuse of Fundamentalist Ideologies, Including But Not Limited to Religion with The Reclamation Collective

reclamation collective founder and therapist kayla felten

It’s only taken me 35 episodes, but we’re finally diving in to spiritual abuse and religious trauma! I have first-hand experience with the spiritual and religious abuse of fundamentalist Evangelical Christianity. But, I think it’s important to make it clear that any ideology can be a dogmatic ideology; and any ideology can be spiritually abusive. […]

Bonus 5: Leaving Wellness Culture & Trauma at the Root of Chronic Illness with Syanna Wand

After the public episode 34, I kept the tape rolling and Syanna and I had a fantastic conversation. Interestingly, we share backgrounds in being holistic health and wellness coaches… and both of us left that industry after experiencing the invisible ceilings we’d hit with our clients. No matter what diet changes or supplements or protocols […]

Episode 34: Nourishing Ourselves — Why Widening Our Windows of Tolerance Requires Mind-Body-Spirit Nourishment with Syanna Wand

Syanna Wand

Trauma creates a chronic state of contraction and doesn’t allow room for expansion. To nourish ourselves in mind, body, and spirit requires being able to expand and receive. In the short-term, the contraction of trauma keeps us safe. But in the long-term, it leaves us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually hungry. Living in a chronic […]

Episode 33: Re-programming the Nervous System with Breathwork with Jules Carpenter

breathwork facilitator Jules Carpenter

We have the power to shut off the fight/flight system by tuning into the breath. In an activated, fight/flight state, we take short, shallow, quick breaths into our chests. Consciously slowing down the breath and deeping breathing into the belly signals to the nervous system that we are not in danger and do not need […]

Episode 32: Let’s Talk Neurofeedback Threapy with Leanne Hershkowitz, M.A., Ed.S., LPC

neurofeedback therapist leanne hershkowitz

Our brains are neuroplastic — meaning the brain can form and reorganize synaptic connections. Neuroplasticity explains how the brain is able to adapt, master new skills, store memories, and recover after traumatic brain injuries. We can harness the power of neuroplasticity to effect amazing changes and reverse mental illness “diagnoses” that we once thought were […]

Episode 31: Why Healing Childhood Trauma Doesn’t Require an Apology from Our Parents

We all have childhood trauma. None of us made it into adulthood unscathed. But, what we’re experiencing as adults — as a result of developmental trauma — isn’t about our parents anymore; it’s about US. What happened to us wasn’t our fault or our choosing, but what we do with it now is our responsibility. […]

Episode 30: Astrological Predictions for Spring 2021 with Tammy Antoinette

Tammy Antoinette

The polarization continues… The conflict (especially on social media), black-and-white thinking, and dehumanization that we are collectively experiencing is written in the stars. It’s actually part of our collective evolution of consciousness. During this cycle — Spring Equinox 2021 to Summer Solstice 2021 — pay attention to Venus and Pluto especially. The Universe is wise […]

Bonus 4: Bridging the Masculine & Feminine (the Left & Right Brain) Through Hypnosis with Priya Lahki

Lindsey Lockett wearing a white wool sweater inspecting forest moss up close

Let’s talk about bridging the Masculine and Feminine (or left and right brain) through hypnosis! Hypnotherapy can help us re-write the hidden programming (aka autopilot) that we live in 95% of the time. If we’re going to be on autopilot, why not create a hypnosis of success rather than a hypnosis of victimhood? In this […]

Episode 28: Settler Colonialism, the Loss of Lineage, Collective Trauma, & Ancestral Healing with Daniel Foor, Ph.D.

My eyes were opened to the many ways that I am feeling ancestral trauma and the disconnection from my lineage of ritual. While many of my ancestors rejected settler colonialism, many perpetuated it. Because colonialism happened and is still happening, my ancestors traded in their rich lineages, traditions, values, rituals, and practices for the temporary, […]

Episode 27: Ego, Identity, Purpose, & Awakening with Priya Lahki

Listening to this episode is like sitting at the feet of an awakened and compassionate but firm spiritual teacher and soaking up love and wisdom and truth. This episode forces us to take an honest look at the hidden programming (aka “autopilot) and decide from a place of awareness if the stories we’re telling ourselves […]

Bonus 3: On Moving Out of Victimhood & Into Empowered, Conscious Creator

Lindsey Lockett wearing jeans and a blue checked shirt standing in the woods with her arms raised and her head looking up to the sky

It’s another solo bonus episode… this time talking about my observations and journey of shifting out of victim mode and into empowered, conscious creator mode. This is a touchy subject and not one I’m super comfortable sharing with the general public yet. I admit that my nervous system isn’t ready for the potential fall-out of […]

Episode 26: Social Media “Activism” (ie. Strangers Showing Up & Taking a Shit in Your Comments) & How NOT to Be an Asshole on the Internet with Tristi Weston

Social media is this weird space where we try to show off the best parts of ourselves while simultaneously feeding the worst parts of ourselves. There seems to be this very strange sense of entitlement to say what ever we want to total strangers. I don’t believe in using social media to hurt other people. […]

Episode 24: Boundary-Setting as a Spiritual Practice & How We Can Call on Plants, Nature, & Ancestors for Support with Poplar Rose

Boundary-setting is a spiritual practice — one that, arguably, would not have been possible through the ages without help from our oldest allies and friends: plants, nature, and ancestors. Think of this: our ancestors would not have survived without plant medicine. You and I would not be here if not for plant medicine. Plants, crystals, […]

Bonus 1: Emotional Neutrality & Nervous System Literacy with Poplar Rose

You are a product of your environment and your nervous system. You are not the sum total of all your life’s choices. When you recognize this, it creates so much room to make decisions ON PURPOSE. When you can stop, think, contemplate and then act — not from your brainstem like a dinosaur but from […]
