Learn how to face life's inevitable "every day traumas" of significant losses and disappointment.

The program will begin with beer/wine and a full dinner.


Join world-recognized authority on post-traumatic stress and the acclaimed mind-body medicine pioneer James S. Gordon, MD, for an evening discussion and experience of the evidence-based, accessible, practical, mind-body skills in his new book (September 2019, HarperOne) The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma. Trauma - injury to the mind, body, and spirit - will come to all of us as we face life’s inevitable challenges, including significant losses and disappointments. These kinds of “everyday traumas” can affect every aspect of our emotional and physical health, social functioning, and overall well-being. In his book, Dr. Gordon presents the first comprehensive, evidence-based program for reversing the psychological and biological damage caused by trauma. Dr. Gordon and his team at The Center for Mind-Body Medicine have brought this groundbreaking program of comprehensive mind-body healing to people and communities across the nation and world, including traumatized children and families in Bosnia, Kosovo, Israel, Gaza; students and teachers after school shootings in Parkland, Florida and Santa Fe, Texas; and people just like us, in communities all across the United States.
