Brent Baum - Powerful Interventions in Healing: Release Stress, Negativity, Pain and Trauma

Tuesday      March 19      6:30-8:30 pm


Take a careful look at the “Primary Languages of Healing” – Energy, Color, Sound and Vibration. We will explore practical interventions to foster healing and optimal health. By learning to establish safety and connecting to the resources we have available for healing in the bodymind, we can address pain and triggers at their source. While stress, anxiety and trauma distort our experience, we can gain mastery over the states of consciousness often rooted in past memories and traumatic imprints. Discover remarkable resources for healing. Learn to focus, maintain safety, release the “stuck moments” and return to living optimally in the present moment.


In addition to this workshop, private appointments may be scheduled. Brent will see clients at The Red Shoes.  Contact Antoinette Kleinpeter at (225) 247-8202 or email majk1111@cox.net to schedule an appointment.


Facilitated by Brent Baum, a trauma resolution and relapse prevention specialist who developed “Holographic Memory Resolution®.” Through his work with over 30,000 trauma survivors, he has discovered breakthrough principles that help in healing and development.  An interdisciplinary specialist in fields of trauma, spirituality, and addictions, Brent travels throughout the world providing workshops, training, and lectures on new and innovative strategies for resolving trauma.
