Let It In with Guy Lawrence

Oct 18, 2020

#141 This week, I’m here with the amazing Dr. Lori Leyden and a quite emotional episode. Dr. Lori is an internationally known humanitarian, a trauma healing expert, and a spiritual mentor. Dr. Leyden works in traumatized communities who have experienced genocide, war, and school shootings.

Our conversation today centered mostly around trauma and not only healing them but healing them in the most graceful and loving way. We specifically talk about EFT, Somatic Release, and the Grace Process as ways to heal.  I think this episode is really relevant to us all because we all carry hidden traumas and I hope that listening to our conversation can make you understand your trauma and help you find a way to start the healing process.

Lori: Lori Leyden, PhD, MBA is an internationally known humanitarian, trauma healing expert, author, visionary, and spiritual guide. In her private work, Dr. Leyden mentors successful transformational leaders, business people and influencers committed to aligning more fully with their destinies and becoming conscious heart-centered leaders in service to global healing.

As a humanitarian, Lori and has brought comfort, peace and healing to thousands of trauma survivors around the world from Rwandan to Australian Indigenous and Refugee communities and post school shooting communities in Newtown, CT, and Parkland, FL where the Sandy Hook Elementary School and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tragedies occurred.

Dr. Leyden is the Founder of the non-profit, Create Global Healing, member of the Global Evolutionary Leaders Council, Association for Transformational Leaders, and Evidence-Based Clinical EFT Master Trainer.
