With Brenda Hersey

Brenda Hershey is an author, researcher, international humanitarian and the President & Founder of TRY (Trauma Recovery Yoga also known as Total Resilience Yoga) Global, an international non-profit organization using neuroscience and yoga to create healing worldwide. Currently residing in Iraqi-Kurdistan, Brenda's purpose is to help people (re)connect mind, body and spirit.


In this interview Brenda discusses the foundations of TRY in America, it's original inception in treating victims of PTSD and her involvement in it. Brenda discusses her foundation of TRY Global in 2021. Based in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, it has had massive success in helping women and children in refugee camps, who have suffered rape and displacement by ISIS and ongoing war.


She also relates her own tale of trauma of losing her father and sister (later on) receiving the news at a very inopportune time flying to South America on behalf of TRY and how the techniques she learned and teaches with TRY helped her deal with the trauma and grieving process. Brenda relates the techniques and aids that TRY uses when dealing with traumatized people and the unique approach they take with traumatized children.


She explains the challenges in adopting these techniques for different cultures and languages, as they have now expanded TRY to Iraqi Baghdad, Lebanon and now Ukraine. We talk briefly about TRY in the media, how the organization helped first responders in the aftermath of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting and expand upon that to talk about the benefits TRY can offer in helping general mental health, stress and anxiety that is a feature of modern lifestyles.


Finally we talk about TRY's YouTube channel and video's offering some of TRY's methods for free, a live demonstration in the interview and a discussion of her new book Your Time to Shine: A Personal Strategic Planning Workbook, a workbook to help build a lifestyle based in purpose.
