Trauma doesn’t have to be a life sentence. On the contrary, it can be our doorway to healing and wholeness. Come gather in the community with fellow travelers on the path of deep trauma healing! In addition to the film and the talks, we will be offering daily integration practices and circles. Each day we will have the opportunity to connect, ground, and reflect with others in a safe space on what has become alive in us from the program and the film. In small groups we will share, listen and learn from one another, so we can take our stand in the present moment aliveness, welcoming ourselves and each other with care and heart. The integration sessions will be guided by Gail Brenner, Ph.D. and our friends at Holistic Resistance. Please pre-register here for the integration circles as space is limited.
