Susie Guckin, a “Warriors At Ease” and McLean Meditation Institute certified meditation teacher and Reiki II practitioner walks you through her personal story of injuries that go far beyond what the eye could ever see. She was injured in two car accidents, but never sustained a single, external scratch from either of them. However, the internal brain injuries left a lasting and confusing impact on her life, creating long term memory loss that has not been recovered. Her journey of recognition, acceptance, education, and development of tools to help her heal from traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress (PTSD), and trauma was divinely guided and inspired through her time volunteering with the wounded and transitioning troops at the local Army base. She has given talks on TBI, PTSD, and meditation at Community Medical Center Hospital, Toms River, NJ and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. She has also participated as an energy work practitioner for veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), and Operation New Dawn (OND) at the Blue Cliff Monastery: Veterans Mindfulness Retreat in Pine Bush, New York. She is the owner of “Peaceful Warriors” (www.peacefulwarriormeditation.us), where she offers trauma-sensitive meditation and energy work in her hometown at the Jersey Shore.
She is a “Warriors At Ease” certified trauma-sensitive meditation teacher with advanced training in military combat stress, trauma, post-traumatic stress, and resiliency. She is also a McLean Meditation Institute, “Simple Easy Every Day (S.E.E.D. ©) certified meditation teacher with training in stress management and stress reduction.
