Yael Abramson was so generous with us in sharing her life experience and mental health journey. Yael demonstrates our innate resilience and ability as human beings to find freedom from the suffering brought about by hardships and traumas that so many of us are unfortunately confronted with in our lives.
For many years, Yael felt at the mercy of manic episodes and periods of deep depression that included persistent suicidal ideation. While she found some initial help from medication, it wasn't until she learned about the role of thought in her mental health that she experienced a tremendous shift in perspective that freed her up to find her own voice. And through her participation in the Rewilding Community, Yael has found deeper peace within herself regarding her gender expression and sexuality.
Yael helps us see that even the more dire-seeming mental illness diagnoses are not as fixed as society would have us think. Since Yael no longer sees the voice in her head as an authority, she no longer struggles with mania and suicidal ideation. And she is no longer frightened by her memories. Yael shares that she is now free.
This episode explores:
- Overcoming mental illness
- How self-acceptance is healing
- The power of a shift in understanding
- Finding your voice when you don't feel you belong
- Healing from trauma and feeling free
Yael Abramson is a Three Principles practitioner, a life coach, and a Rewilding Guide. She is also a facilitator of the Missing Link book club in Hebrew and works with a group of people translating the many books available about this understanding for the Hebrew-speaking community. Yael also has a private counseling practice. As a young person struggling with mental illness, Yael felt that she was broken. After coming across the understanding behind rewilding she slowly started to feel free, ultimately finding more feelings of security and peace of mind.
