On episode 264 of The Nurse Keith Show, Keith interviews Leslie Huddart — a brilliant acupuncturist, speaker, healer, and trainer based in Phoenix, Arizona — regarding the mind-body connection, the subtle body, dealing with conflict, Leslie’s beliefs in spiritual healing, and what nurses can do to live their most powerful and healthy life. We also speak about secondary trauma, the nature of suffering, and much more.
Leslie Huddart L.Ac. is guided by the outrageous belief that our Outer world problems (our health, relationships, finances…) are actually Inner world problems (our unconscious beliefs, unresolved trauma & subtle body issues). Leslie is a spiritual guide and subtle body expert who gives individuals the practical tools to actually embody the life they’re meant to live, without years of struggle or therapy. Leslie teaches people how to heal their anxiety, release old trauma safety, and find true confidence through practical body-based systems of healing. She combines her experience in Vedic spirituality, yoga, acupuncture, and somatic therapies to help healers and empaths understand the technical side of how their mind-body-spirit system can work for their benefit.
Leslie has worked with many nurses in her acupuncture practice and in her spiritual bootcamp, why she chose to transition out of full-time clinical practice, and other fascinating topics. You can also access her free 60-minute training, “How to Walk Your Healer Path” by clicking here.
Leslie says, “Your body has your best interests at heart.”
When dealing with traumatized patients or individuals:
- Acknowledge that you need to put on your oxygen mask first and not overly identify with another’s suffering.
- Notice your own physicality compared to the suffering person sitting in front of you.
- When sitting with a person in deep distress, place your hand over the top of your solar plexus just below the ribs and this can help you come back into your own sense of personal clarity.
- After you’ve dealt with a traumatic situation or encounter, use water intentionally in order to let go of others’ energies and “call in” your own.
- Develop a clear sense of what you think is going on at the deeper levels in the face of trauma.
