What is Integration Station?

Definition of Integration

Integration is the process of uniting parts into a whole.

Suppressed emotions (trauma) get trapped in our physical bodies and we cleave off our conscious mind from those parts of ourselves. Our Integration process is centered around bringing awareness to your trauma, locating it, and releasing the suppressed emotions in hopes of becoming a fully integrated human.

I was unconscious of the fact that my trauma was running the show. I was in a perpetual fight, flight, and freeze response due to trauma for the first 32 years of my life.

I was utterly disconnected from my physical body (dissociation) and my five senses. Once I fully processed my trauma all my five senses increased in fidelity. My sense of touch, for three decades, was a “one-way function”. In other words, I was aware of touching objects, but my mind wasn’t registering the objects touching me back.

The “bandwidth” of my conscious mind was being used to trap the trauma in order to protect me, because if I were to bring to light all the anger, fear, and sorrow trapped in my body I would have gone insane.

Why is integration important?

Without integrating your trauma you’ll be stuck in a: 

Stimulus → Reaction loop.

Instead of a:

Stimulus → Process → Response loop

Processing trauma can also heal auto-immune disorders, and cure depression and anxiety. As simplistic as it sounds, suppressed emotions were at the root of the majority of my issues, including my chronic sleeping disorder Narcolepsy.

Processing trauma can also heal mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and suicidal ideation. 

For YEARS I struggled with binge eating, even though I didn’t look like it. Sugar and processed foods were my drugs of choice. With the help of Somatic Experiencing, Journaling, Yoga, and other tools I was able to quell the sugar cravings and have lost 25 pounds since.

Our Integration Process



The first step is to bring awareness to the knot. For this, we use the toolkit of education. Dr. Gabor Mate, Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk, and Dr. Peter Levine are great resources for understanding the causes and physiology behind trauma.  

Loosen The First Loop


Then, the next step would be to be articulate and feel your first “batch” of suppressed emotions. There are infinite ways to get there, but none of them involve “mindset”. This process is an experience. You need to feel your emotions. Me, I got there by articulating my pain, out loud, in the presence of an empathetic witness (my mother at the time).

Untangle The Whole Knot


Last, it’s about untangling the whole knot, or at least as much as you can. This step may take several years, and that’s okay. Once I got to step two, I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. It took me roughly 6.5 years of trying to get to step two, but once I was there, step three came much quicker.
