Mind, Body, and Soul: The Holistic Way to a Healthier You
The Three Pillars of Healing for women healing complex trauma
A safe and supportive trauma-informed community allows survivors to feel understood, validated, and less alone in their struggles. It can provide a sense of belonging and acceptance that survivors have lacked in their earlier experiences. Being part of a trauma-informed community can also offer opportunities for growth and healing, as survivors can learn from others’ experiences and gain new insights into their own healing journey.
With the support and encouragement of a trauma-informed community, survivors of childhood trauma can build resilience, find hope, and work towards a brighter future.
Proper resources are essential for trauma-informed healing but have traditionally been challenging to find. The effects of trauma can profoundly affect your physical, emotional, and psychological well-being, and recovery can take time and effort.
Trying to track down the necessary resources can feel daunting and impossible. That’s why we are constantly working to provide healing resources for childhood trauma survivors—so you can stop playing the guessing game about how to heal.
Trauma-informed education is critical to healing childhood trauma because it acknowledges the impact that trauma can have on your brain and body. Childhood trauma can lead to various challenges, including difficulty regulating emotions, disrupted attachment relationships, and disruptions in cognitive and academic development.
Our trauma-informed lessons take into consideration how a trauma survivors learns, and processes information to ensure you have the best chance of succeeding.
The proper trauma-informed education allows you to heal from past experiences and develop resilience in the face of future challenges.

Building a Safe Haven: Essential Elements for a Trauma-Informed Environment
the missing piece
the importance of trauma-informed environments
Trauma survivors can be re-traumatized when put in environments that are not trauma-informed. These situations can trigger memories, feelings, and sensations associated with the original trauma—causing them to be overwhelmed and highly stressed, leading to feelings of shame, guilt, and helplessness that often accompany trauma. This is why a trauma-informed community can be vital to healing.
A Comprehensive Approach to Childhood Trauma Recovery
Mind-Body Healing: The Power of Connection
Western medicine uses a reductionist approach to healthcare—doctors look at the body parts in isolation. While this approach has successfully treated acute medical conditions, it fails to support trauma survivors whose experiences affect multiple aspects of their health and well-being.
Trauma survivors often experience many physical, emotional, and psychological symptoms. These symptoms cannot be addressed by focusing solely on individual body parts or symptoms.
A whole-body approach recognizes the interconnectedness of the body, mind, and spirit and considers the complex interplay between these elements. This approach emphasizes treating the whole person rather than just the individual symptoms.

Survivor of Childhood Trauma, Young Widow, Suicide Attempt Survivor, and Disabled Mom
From Breakdown to breakthrough
My name is Kristina Bentle, I’m on a mission to help survivors of childhood trauma.
I am a research, teacher, and author.
One thing they don’t tell you about childhood trauma…. the lifetime of negative impact it can have on you, and you won’t even realize it. As a trauma survivor, your choices are based on a faulty belief system.
Fast forward twenty years, and one day, you wake up and feel out of control, desperate, and living a life that feels like a total lie.
Finding the right healing tools, education, support, and community took me years. I don’t want others to struggle as I have; that’s why I built Awakened Mom life. This is why I’ve committed to helping other women by taking the guesswork out of healing.
Trauma has robbed me of many happy years. In 2021, I was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder, most likely caused by trauma. I am now disabled because of years of abuse, but in a way it’s made me stronger. I will continue to fight to help others heal and find the proper support.
