Generational Trauma, Healing & The Holidays

by D'Arcy Benincosa

Generational Trauma, Healing & The Holidays with April and Brooke Benincosa on the Play It Brave Podcast

Do the holidays tend to trigger you and fill you with stress? Listen in while I chat with my sisters Brooke and April about how we have started to heal generational trauma and bring our family closer together to enjoy the holidays free of stress.

Meet April Benincosa:

April is the heart of the family and an embodiment of the lover archetype. You’ll often find April hosting family parties and sharing love and positivity everywhere she goes. She uses her outgoing personality to create safe spaces filled with love for people to heal and carries her energy through her career of owning five salons. 

Meet Brooke Benincosa:

Brooke is the youngest and the warrior archetype of the family. She has been a registered nurse for 10 years and has extensive knowledge in somatic body work. She is passionate about helping people release trauma in the body to allow them more space to heal and step into their power. 

One of the biggest parts of the holidays is spending time with family and friends, this can be triggering and stressful for many of us. Luckily there is something you can do about it, and it starts from within. The first step to healing generational trauma is to identify patterns and inner wounds. This can look like: avoidant behavior, being non-confrontational or over-confrontational, being codependent, people pleasing, and dissociating. Physical manifestations may also appear in the body as pain and illness. After you have identified some of the symptoms, you can work on the roots. Talk therapy and somatic body work are both ways you can look inward and release the pain and suffering of generational trauma, and start to unfold a beautiful balanced life. 

Tips for showing up as your best self during the holidays: 

  1. Move from FOMO to JOMO (Joy Of Missing Out). Start saying “no” to things that don’t feel good, and lean into the peace you feel when you listen to yourself. 
  2. Decide ahead of time what you will and won’t do so that it’s easy to respond when the invites start coming in.
  3. Stay embodied in yourself by learning how to have a loving “no” and an honest “yes” 
  4. Try being PRESENT instead of giving PRESENTS
  5. Experiment with traditions that aren’t centered around food to foster more connection with your friends and family
