3 – Rising From The Abyss Of Trauma With Ted O’Neil

POSTED BY Hamish 12/09/2017 IN Podcast | No Comments

After growing up in a terribly dysfunctional and abusive home where all he saw was chaos, Ted O’Neil graduated with his degree in psychology and subsequently worked in a psychiatric crisis centre for 8 years, at which time, he chose to study law. Ted formed his first company that was highly successful. On the day his largest client cancelled their contract due to 9/11, Ted suffered a heart attack.

Sinking into a deep depression for nearly a decade in which he was perpetually suicidal, he lost his friends, his family, he left his home and his children and found himself homeless sleeping on floors in the Philippines. Submitting to psychiatry, he found himself taking meds after meds that only made things worse and eventually led to a combat level traumatic event.

This lead to a spiritual awakening. Today Ted and his wife have dedicated themselves to giving back to others so that they don’t have to spend years finding the answers that he learned.
