Format: Paperback
I purchased this book (along with a few others on the subject) initially because I was interested in the topic.
Not a medical person or psychiatrist of any sort, I just thought it was something that I would enjoy looking into. For those that know how the subconscious works, you'll appreciate the fact that I discovered that I was a victim of PTSD while delving into the subject.
It was as if the universe was trying to tell me something. All I can say is that it opened my eyes and changed my life in ways I never knew possible.
For those interested in fiction dealing with a topic along these lines (and also Dissociative Identity Disorder) I would recommend reading a book called "Bark of the Dogwood" by Jackson McCrae. It's an intricate study of PTSD, child abuse, dysfunction, and a little of everything else, and packs quite a wallop. And it's actually quite funny in places--probably the ONLY book I know of about child abuse that has a bright side.

This is a very good, excellent resource for those wanting to make the step forward on the healing path. It certainly covers a broud range of lessons. Ranks right up there with books such as NIGHTMARES ECHO and LOST BOY. Teaches the victim how to become a survivor. Excellent Excellent Book I would recommend for everyone to read.

This is a well written book that provides a different perspective on how to work with traumatic experiences. As one who has always "lived in my head" to get through not only the trauma is it occurred, but also as I work through the aftermath, this book provided good insight into WHY I needed to include a physical aspect to my healing.

Received product quickly and in "like new", shape. Gotten through part of the book. Interesting read. Can open your eyes to a few unexpected things. While not exactly light recreational reading the book is easy to engage and keeps you interested.

Format: Paperback
Rambling, poorly written and anecdotal. Many of the hypothesis anthropomorphised animals. I grew up on a farm and I have seen animals retain and 'hold' their trauma's for life. The examples of animals ability to shake off trauma may work for a impala but sure won't for a horse. Psychobabble

Format: Paperback
After suffering a major life threatening illness several years ago, I've struggled with chronic pain that lasts every day, all day. I've literally seen EVERY specialist, every test conceivable to diagnose let alone treat my pain. I've been left with the conclusion that an inner, holistic manner is the only thing left to treat the pain, because drug treatment leaves me basically in a state better left to those in hospice and who have given up.
Dr. Levine has 30 years experience in dealing with patients suffering severe pain and the overiding factor that the pain interferes with even the most simple aspect of living a normal life.
Waking the Tiger presents case studies that are representative of how pain affects us. Levine gives simple exercises to help break through the web of pain so that we can go about enjoying life again.
I can't just recommend going out and buying this workbook and all your problems and pain will be gone by the time you finish reading it. But it does give you faith in the inner strength we all have to control our pain in conjunction with other treatment. And believe it or not, that inner strength MAY be enough to make the difference between needing to be doped up all the time, not being able to enjoy life.
I recommend Dr Levine's material. I'm not pain free and never will be but I am better because of it.

Format: Paperback
This exciting, insightful book reinforces the wholeness of the human vehicle, that our body and triune brain of instinct, emotion and rationality are totally connected to the human experience and to our connection with all of life. The book explains why humans are often frozen in trauma, unlike animals who daily cope with the unpredictability of nature and man. For humans, as is true for animals, the potential for trauma exists from birth through death, with at least one major difference - that humans have a harder time releasing trauma and many carry it all of their lives, which causes major interference with health, peace of mind and the ability to live joyfully and creatively. When human trauma remains unhealed, the energy of the trauma and accompanying emotions will remain locked within the brain and held within the body's musculature, tissues and organs awaiting discharge. Like Sleeping Beauty awaiting her restoration to life once the poisoned apple is dislodged, those with deep psychological scars have disassociated the memory from their minds and are living in a numbed, tensed body awaiting its release so the body can return to wholeness and optimum mental and physical health. The author persuasively asserts that psychological wounds are reversible and that healing comes when the physical and mental letting go occurs, similar to the way the tiger experiences the coming and going of threat, tensing in response to danger, and as the threat passes, the tiger's muscles shake, twitch and let go right then and there the fear related energy which now is forever out of mind and body. So, too, Peter Levine states, can humans learn to release long-held and/or current trauma without return.Read more ›
