Waking the Tiger offers a new and hopeful vision of trauma. It views the human animal as a unique being, endowed with an instinctual capacity. It asks and answers an intriguing question: Why are animals in the wild, though threatened routinely, rarely traumatized? By understanding the dynamics that make wild animals virtually immune to traumatic symptoms, the mystery of human trauma is revealed. Waking the Tiger normalizes the symptoms of trauma and the steps needed to heal them. People are often traumatized by seemingly ordinary experiences. The listener is taken on a guided tour of the subtle, yet powerful impulses that govern our responses to overwhelming life events. To do this, it employs a series of exercises that help us focus on bodily sensations. Through heightened awareness of these sensations trauma can be healed.
"Fascinating! Amazing! A revolutionary exploration of the effects and causes of trauma." (Mira Rothenberg, author of Children with Emerald Eyes)

essential book- worst narration ever!
I am in Peter Levine's 3 year program, and was so excited to see this was finally on audio.
Unfortunately, the narrator's voice is so monotonous, abrasive and scientific that it made this incredible & lively material unbearable! I don't understand why he was chosen to read it.
I do recommend this book to anyone even remotely interested, I believe it is a profound method of healing. At this point, I'll just recommend the hard copy.
Chris Sorensen is such a poor reader
