The Core Trauma of Separation & the Journey to Wholeness
with Alex Boianghu
We humans all take a mythical Hero’s Journey from the experience of separation to the experience of wholeness. Meditation teacher & therapist Alex Boianghu and I kick off our series off this Journey of Wholeness with this episode. Alex is a gifted therapist with over 30 years of study and practice. He uses an integrative approach to therapy, emphasizing psycho-spiritual growth grounded in somatic therapy’s focus on the unity of body and mind. In our series, Alex guides and models how to positively harness the psycho-dynamic energies we all possess to rediscover our common and innate holistic nature.
Many people recognize that they are called to this journey from childhood. This tells us early in life that we have both the experience of being a separate being in a world that focuses on separation, and something more. The exploration and cultivation of this “something more” becomes our mythic journey as individuals, and as a human family.
Including, these juicy topics:
The experience of separation is the core wound of each human and our collective wound that expresses in feelings of “not enough,” or striving, unworthiness, lack and the feeling that for me to feel like I have enough I need others to have less than me in comparison.
Separation is our core trauma, expressed individually in a variety ways and experiences, and when you try to heal the individual trauma without healing the core trauma of separation, you will experience the core trauma of separation in other ways. When you heal the core wound of separation, then the energy of all traumatic experiences dissolves away.
Trauma and stress can be lodged in the nervous system from pre-birth or very early life, and so learning to calm the nervous system can help you experience more moments of Beingness and your true, whole nature.
We intuit as children that we are inherently whole, and pursuing the experience of wholeness drives our behavior and decisions all our lives. Mostly in ineffectual and even harmful ways, until we learn that wholeness is a trait we can experience and cultivate that replaces the core experience of separation and all the ways that expresses in our lives.
