If you have been impacted by a traumatic event in your life, you are not alone. In a recent study that surveyed residents from more than a dozen countries, 70% of people reported having experienced some form of trauma. And when you consider how often we suppress traumatic experiences, often without being aware of it, the number is undoubtedly even higher than that. Here to help us unearth this topic is Nadeya Hassa, Founder and CEO of Zaya, a mindfulness platform that employs a science-backed therapeutic model to support the emotional and physical well-being of individuals with trauma and trauma-related symptoms. Their approach teaches the importance of the mind-body connection and uses mindfulness to activate personal transformation and healing. In this episode, we take a deep dive into the mind-body connection and unpack the complex and far-reaching impact that our thoughts have on our physiology. In our conversation, Nadeya shares how her father’s cancer diagnosis prompted a deeply introspective journey that led her all the way to a Costa Rican jungle, then to Nepal, and ultimately back home. We discuss the many ways that trauma is misunderstood in our society and how, given adequate support, trauma offers us the opportunity to deepen our compassion and create resilience. Nadeya shares how meditation and yoga have been integral to her mindfulness journey and why dissolution of ego is essential to letting go of fear and experiencing a feeling of oneness with the universe. Our conversation with Nadeya takes us on an incredible journey to a deeper understanding of the power of our thoughts, so make sure you tune into this expansive and impactful exploration of the mind-body connection!
