Because much of my work has been helping people heal from trauma and abuse, I have been asked to comment on the recent school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. In this podcast I will be sharing some suggestions of how you can:
1) Release and heal from any trauma you might feel in the wake of this tragedy.
2) Suggestions as to what you can do to answer deeper questions like: Why did this shooting happen? Why do these things continue to happen? And is there something that I can do about it?
Thank you so much for spending time with me, I wish you infinite blessings, unconditional love, and the presence to fully enjoy them.

Programs for Healing and Recovering from
Trauma, Crisis, and Preventing PTSD
You don’t have to be there at ground zero to be impacted and even profoundly traumatized by an event as horrific as the Newtown Massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Even President Obama cried.
Dealing effectively with such challenges requires you to:
Phase 1. Go through the appropriate grieving period with sufficient relaxation that you do not develop post-traumatic stress issues, yet remain sensitive and responsive to the naturally healing feelings of grief.
Phase 2. Discover what it is that you need to learn from what has happened.
Phase 3. Develop the focus, courage, and commitment to take the actions that you know are the right ones, no matter how difficult.
The Audio programs below have been prepared by Dr. Emmett Miller. You can learn more about Mind-Body Medicine and the use of Mind-Tools at his Informational Website.
Phase I – Surviving the Initial Trauma and Feelings of Loss
Use the following programs while there are still acute symptoms of shock, sadness, grief, despair, and depression – it may continue for one or more weeks. Their use may be continued into later phases of recovery and renaissance.
Letting Go Of Stress – Tools and techniques for keeping your body balanced and free from excess stress and its damaging chemicals.
Healing Journey and Rainbow Butterfly – two beautiful programs weaving the guidance of Dr. Miller’s words together with original music – pure relaxation and peace.
Easing Into Sleep – When it is difficult to turn off the mind and quiet the emotions enough to get to sleep try this.
Goodbye Insomnia (MP3 only) – is another program to listen to after you climb in bed.
The Silent Path – This music-only CD provides the perfect background for meditation or just relaxation.
Escape From Depression – When feelings of helplessness and hopelessness persist beyond a few weeks, this two-CD program will help you rediscover the spark of life (in severe cases of despair and exhaustion, evaluation by a mental health professional is wise).
Phase II – Discovering Deeper Learnings – Who am I Now, and What Is My Mission?
After one or several weeks, the acute pain becomes less intense, and there is more emotional and mental space available. While continuing your relationships with loved ones, it is now time to reassess who you are now, and what are the changes that you want to bring into your life.
I Am: Awakening Self-Acceptance – A Heart-to-Heart talk followed by two guided meditations take you to a special place within, where you go past superficial aspects to the deepest part of your being. There you discover the ever growing core (your capital “S” Self), nurture it, and embody it in your everyday life.
Accepting Change and Moving On – Through two deeply relaxing guided imagery experiences you will learn the secret of letting go that occurs with each breath, the comfort and freedom of releasing, and the peace of completion and new opportunities.
The Serenity Prayer – Heart-to-Heart wisdom and guided imagery: understand the true source of wisdom, serenity and courage, and use them intelligently.
Phase III – Spirit in Action: Your Duty to the Deepest Part of Yourself
Sometimes the process of healing from a great loss or trauma awakens you to the fact that your life is not meaningless – you have a mission. The following programs help you further identify your goals and stay on focus. There are things we have to do – play your part.
Awakening the Leader Within – Stage a revolution and seize control of your life; guide it with your deeper Self, then play your part in leading in your community.
Begin Your Day the Olympian Way –Dr. Miller and 3-time Olympic Athlete Marilyn King: trains you in the use of the strategies and visualization skills of top athletes, leaders, performers, and others.
Personal Excellence – a 6 part program for discovering your true value and purpose and how to create a compelling vision of the future you want to create and empowering yourself to create it.
Abolish Anxiety –An effective set of inner exercises to decondition the anxious part of yourself and awaken the courage to meet your challenges.

Healing Trauma & Treating PTSD
Recovering from the Newtown School Shooting and Preventing Another
You don’t have to be a direct victim of trauma to be profoundly traumatized by an event as horrific as the Newtown Massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Even President Obama cried, notes Dr. Emmett Miller of Nevada City.
An internationally recognized physician specializing in healing and recovery from trauma, Dr. Miller is offering a free mp3 (a downloadable online recording) on how we can cope with our own anguish, help those whom we love – and change a nation, culture and media that glorify violence.
“Healing Trauma & Treating PTSD – Recovering from the Newtown School Shooting and Preventing Another” is a two-part presentation from one of the pioneers of mind-body medicine.
Part One analyzes how we can respond – not just react – to this tragedy. An appeal to both our deepest emotions and highest intellect, Part One takes us from our most intense feelings of loss and grief through the trauma healing process to the most practical and political solutions of how we can turn this crisis into an opportunity to, literally, change the world.
Using the precepts of his recent book “Our Culture on the Couch – 7 Steps to Global Healing,” Miller takes us on a journey from the most basic step of being in, and accepting, the present reality to the ultimate step of committing to staying on course to changing ourselves and the world.
While Part One challenges our most fundamental fears and beliefs in a positive way, Part Two gives us respite from the horrors we face via guided imagery meditation. In his hypnotically soothing voice, Miller leads us to a place of both peace and empowerment.
“Healing Trauma & Treating PTSD – Recovering from the Newtown School Shooting and Preventing Another” is available for free at www.DrMiller.com/healingtrauma/.
“When news of yet another outbreak of senseless violence, the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, my heart was deeply saddened.” Said a passionate Dr. Miller, “I knew this event would traumatize many people, and so I create this program to help people heal, grow, and respond effectively to this nationwide crisis.”
For those who want to explore more deeply how we can change the world by changing ourselves, Dr. Miller is offering a free e-book copy of “Our Culture on the Couch – 7 Steps to Global Healing.” To obtain a copy, just sign up for the free Healing Times newsletter at www.drmiller.com/newsletter/.
