Our Vision

Austin Shamanic Center rides the razor’s edge between Spirituality and Modern Science, stepping us out of ancient superstitions and into universal connection. It is from the many ancient indigenous teachings that we have all come, and it is to them that we now return. We are all about your conscious evolution. Our aim is to remind you of who you truly are and to help you find the way into living in integrity with yourself, and with the world around you. It is to empower you with tools that create optimal health, self awareness, and wellness on every level of your being: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Once you have reclaimed your strengths, you become a beacon of light, facilitating the same in others. As we all come into balance, creating conscious communities around us, we make a positive difference in the world from the place of deepest service.

Trauma, Freeze, and Consent

It has been said that trauma is a thief. Whatever it was that happened, the worst of it often lies downstream. The events may have been horrific, in and of themselves, but trauma also steals from us our future and our self respect. Like interest on a maxed out credit card the effects of trauma are compounded daily. Especially when it happened early in life. As children we are usually considerably outmatched by our aggressors. The default stress response is to flee or to fight back. But when we are small this is usually not an option. Children facing violence, abuse, or violations of their boundaries and bodies have but one option: to survive it. A third stress response called Freeze takes over. Freeze is a shut down of all physical and emotional responses. It is akin to the opossum playing dead. The goal is to live. We go into shock, into paralysis, and then we dissociate, leaving our bodies to the circumstances at hand.
