Join us as we talk with shadow worker and coach, Laura Giles, who shares insight on understanding how past trauma, particularly from one’s childhood, can emerge in a new romantic relationship. Through our conversation, Tracy’s oft-said comment, “when it’s hysterical, it’s historical” and quest for every first date to take place at a therapy session comes to life as Laura talks about the power of therapy, DBT, and meditation in mitigating the effects of past trauma in a new partnership. Corey readily admits, though, that any meditation beyond one minute is simply too long to “do nothing” as Laura says. Thankfully, they learned…one minute is all it takes, apparently.
