Learning the Lessons Our Collective Trauma Has to Teach

October 23, 2020

In September of 2019, Dr. Jim Gordon published The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma. On the first page, he wrote that trauma—injury to our mind, body, and spirit—comes sooner or later to everyone. Dr. Gordon had no idea that just a few months later, people across the nation and world would be dramatically and intimately affected, and traumatized.

While we’re enduring the losses, threats, and deprivations of the pandemic and the disturbance and challenges of political division and a necessary reckoning with racism, we can embrace this time of trauma as a teacher. If we do, it can make us more healthy and whole, wiser and stronger than we’ve ever been, kinder and more committed to creating a world in which we care for ourselves and love one another. 

Please join Dr. Gordon this Friday at 3 PM ET for a conversation about how to recognize, understand, and deal with what we’re experiencing, how we can meet the challenges of this trauma-heavy time, and how we can discover and embrace new, life-affirming ways of thinking, being, and acting. 

This webinar is a time for all of you to have a conversation with him, to ask the questions that the pandemic and our divided and troubled world are making urgent and personal. 

This webinar is approximately 60 minutes in length, and will be simultaneously broadcast at 3PM ET on Friday, October 23 on YouTube and Facebook
