Session 1: Wisdom of Trauma
Can our deepest pain be a doorway to healing? Trauma is the invisible force that shapes our lives. It shapes the way we live, the way we love and the way we make sense of the world. It is the root of our deepest wounds. In The Wisdom of Trauma, we travel alongside physician, bestselling author and Order of Canada recipient Dr. Gabor Maté to understand the connection between illness, addiction, trauma and society. Dr. Maté gives us a new vision: a trauma-informed society in which parents, teachers, physicians, policy-makers and legal personnel are not concerned with fixing behaviors, making diagnoses, suppressing symptoms and judging, but seek instead to understand the sources from which troubling behaviors and diseases spring in the wounded human soul.
Join us for an exclusive screening of the film Wisdom of Trauma, followed by an intimate sharing circle facilitated by Sepali and Semal Bodh Mastani.
“Trauma is not what happens to you. Trauma is what happens inside you, as a result of what happens to you.” — Gabor Maté
