A Review of In an Unspoken Voice by Peter Levine

If you're interested in trauma and PTSD....

This is the book for you.

It’s what drives us gives us energy and hope, connects us to the world, gives our life purpose.

But when your heart has been shut down...maybe repeatedly...you begin to lose trust. And the world becomes a scary and threatening place.

We cut ourselves off from each other...fabricate separation….the mine and the yours.

Some of us have good reason.

Most of us have suffered trauma in our lives...sexual abuse, rape, physical abuse, neglect, medical intervention, life threatening injuries, car accidents...and the list goes on. We build emotional pain!

So we become fearful to protect ourselves from the world.

And anxiety and depression show up.

Now the heart is a REALLY big topic.

So I’m going to break it down into some parts, the parts I’ll call
