This Friday, August 21st, Dr. James Gordon will be presenting our next free self-care webinar, “Misunderstanding and Prejudice, Inequity, and Racism: Using Mind-Body Medicine to Free us from Their Legacy”. This special webinar features a discussion with his friend, colleague, and CMBM Senior Faculty Member, Dr. Rita Anita Linger.

They will explore together the ways that mind-body medicine can be used to promote better understanding among people who have been separated from and fearful of one another as well as those who have suffered significant trauma from racism, inequities, and prejudice.

This webinar is approximately 60 minutes in length. In the latter part of the webinar, Rita-Anita and Dr. Gordon answer audience questions.
