Healing at the Level of Mind
(Cognitive Domain: Contemplative Practice)
Mind is the complex patterns of thought which are constantly flowing in and out of our awareness. How we think, what we think, and how we perceive our thinking are all aspects of life governed by our experiences. Many of us have had very difficult experiences though, which have conditioned our minds to cause us a great deal of psychological suffering. Thankfully, due to the power of neuroplasticity, we can use a variety of techniques to change how our brains are actually wired – fundamentally altering the systems and structures of mind.
Healing at the Level of Body
(Physiological System: Somatic Practice)
Within the structure of the brain lies the amygdala. The amygdala is directly connected the nervous system, bypasses the thinking mind, and has its own emotional memory capacity. In other words, when we are confronted with something like a trauma or the effects of cumulative micro trauma, these events get encoded in the amygdala and trigger-associations are formed neurologically. To heal the body, we have to teach the amygdala that we are safe, rewiring neurons to establish new associative memories that reinforce and sustain the healing process.
Bradley Bemis, MS, LPCC, CLC
Teacher, Coach, Counselor
I’m a mindfulness and contemplative wisdom teacher, mental health professional, and life coach living in Colorado. I’ve been working with people since 2014 to better understand human suffering: how to move through it, learn from it, and fully integrate it into the whole of who we are.
I earned my Masters of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the CACREP-accredited CMHC program at Walden University, and am currently a PhD student studying Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) – focusing on Consciousness Studies and Contemplative Neuroscience. My main area of clinical interest is anxiety, along with its common trauma precursors and often co-occuring presentations of depression, addiction, eating disorders, and sleep disorders. My background and experience with clinical interventions includes ACT, DBT, Mindfulness-based CBT, Internal Family Systems, Inner-child Work, Focusing, Somatic Experiencing, Exposure Therapy, the Gottman Method, Applied Behaviorism, mindfulness, meditation, and contemplation.
