In this episode, you’ll learn how Brainspotting allows for incredible breakthroughs to peace and peak performance for both athletes (specifically gymnasts) and first responders.

For more information about Brainspotting, please see Brainspotting is the work of Dr. David Grand.

What do these populations ( gymnastics and First Responders) have in common? They both train in the context of great risk.

You'll learn some amazing tips and hear stories of healing from Brainspotting practitioner Jessica Crowley.

The mantras from the episode are as follows:

Mantra #1: Obstacles don't always result from a first-hand experience; secondary trauma is an important consideration for both peak performance and healing.

Mantra #2: We are not always aware of the underlying causes of our obstacles/ “stuck” feelings, which leads to….

Mantra #3: The Brainspotting process is not always linear; Brainspotting follows the “uncertainty principle” first proposed by Quantum physicist Heisenberg.

Mantra #4: Whether it is an athlete or a first responder, the “healee” has a very important and active role in the healing process (healing is not the “doing” of the practitioner)

Mantra #5: In Brainspotting, verbalizing the content is not necessary; the “talking cure” has its place in mental wellness, but you don't necessarily have to talk to process and heal
