Frequently Asked Questions

The Healing Trauma Program is for anyone who wants to develop self-regulation skills so they can become a greater healing presence for others, and to learn directly from some of the most respected trauma educators, researchers, and clinical practitioners of our time. This can include helping professionals of all kinds: yoga teachers, frontline health-care workers, coaches, educators, community leaders, parents, and other people who encounter people suffering from trauma, needing to know how to embody a sense of groundedness and connection. We welcome any person willing to participate in this enriching, life-changing event.

While there is no prerequisite to join, it’s most appropriate for individuals who are committed to personal change.

You can expect to have approximately 1 hour to 1.25 hours of coursework per week. This time will include 30 minutes of teachings and 40 minutes of guided practices per week, one monthly live “deep dive” learning session, and two monthly optional Office Hours with Jeffrey.

For more detailed program schedule information and key dates, please refer to the Program section of the website.

The Office Hours will be held on the second Thursday of every month at 8pm ET/5pm PT and the third Thursday of every month at 12pm ET/9am PT. The Going Deeper broadcasts will be held on the fourth Thursday of every month at 8pm ET/5pm PT.

This program is considered “blended learning”—some of the information will be presented live and some will be prerecorded, so you can participate when it’s convenient for you.

Many of us have carried trauma for years and more likely decades. That kind of trauma cannot be transformed in an eight week course. Instead, Sounds True created a longer immersive experience, to give students the opportunity to develop the necessary skills to work with their nervous system. Embodying safety and becoming a healing presence takes practice and support that requires a longer length of study.

No problem. All of the online sessions will be available to watch on demand within 24–48 hours after they are broadcast.
