MSG presents: Body wisdom: How emotional trauma presents in the body

Speaker Brent Baum

Speaker Brent Baum

Glenda Anderson

This presentation by Brent Baum, developer of Holographic Memory Resolution (HMR) and Miraval’s longest running contractor, will be the last one for this season. Brent will scan willing participants to find where you are storing emotional trauma in your body and explain how his method can resolve these traumas easily and quickly without having to relive the trauma. Join us on May 13, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. at the SaddleBrooke Activity Center for this remarkable lecture.

What is your body really telling you? If you have hearing issues, your ears could be holding years of childhood shame from a constantly critical parent. Have you broken or sprained an ankle? You may have been exposed to a lack of emotional support between ages three and five — perhaps owing to parents divorcing, domestic violence, abuse from an alcoholic parent or a consistent lack of nurturing – since ankles store trauma from that age of development. Rotator cuff and arm issues may reflect back-forth indecision about establishing or detaching from a relationship, whether it’s a romantic partner or putting mom in a nursing home. Brent will help you understand how intimately the body is tied to our states of consciousness and why physical pain is often the indicator of places where unresolved emotional pain is held. A significant portion of what we label illness is in fact a precise metaphorical expression of trauma, manifest in physical form, according to Brent. This physical disease serves to capture our attention so that we can bring resolution to the unfinished business of the subconscious mind, releasing both mind and body from pain. Join Brent as he takes you on a fascinating walk through your own body, helps you examine its status in holding emotional trauma that may underlie physical issues and provides guided instruction on how to release pain on all levels – for peace of mind, emotional balance and physical health.

Brent developed HMR as a relapse prevention strategy while working in both inpatient and outpatient treatment centers. Completing post-graduate training at the Gregorian University in Rome, Brent served as a Catholic priest, a faculty member of Notre Dame Seminary, an archeologist in the Near East, Clinical Director for Cottonwood Treatment Centers, Inc. and is currently a certified addictions counselor and a clinical hypnotherapist. Brent maintains a private practice in Tucson, Arizona, and is one of a select group of alternative therapists providing services at Miraval: Life in Balance in Northwest Tucson ( He is the co-founder of Michael’s Gift (, a nonprofit charity devoted to education, training, and dissemination of trauma resolution strategies to the diverse populations affected by the many faces of violence and abuse in our world. He is the author of three books: Surviving Trauma School Earth (2013), Living as Light: The Awakening of Mystical Consciousness (2006) and The Healing Dimensions: Resolving Trauma in Body, Mind & Spirit (1997). The hallmark of his work is the empowerment of the healer we hold within. “You are your own best healer. Only you know what you have experienced, so only you know exactly what you need to heal.”
