Trauma, Memory, and the Restoration of One’s Self with Dr. Bessel van der Kolk and Licia Sky
January 5, 2024 - January 7, 2024
Join bestselling author, psychiatrist, and cofounder of the Trauma Research Foundation (TRF) Bessel van der Kolk and somatic educator and TRF cofounder Licia Sky for a profound two-day, in-person workshop in which you will explore how trauma impacts the body through embodied awareness practices, theater work, neurofeedback, and more.
You will learn:
- How traumatized people continue to be trapped by their history and react to their current experiences as a replay of the past
- Strategies to break the cycles of re-enactment and suffering
- Ways of representing and befriending your inner experience
- How practices like EMDR, IFS psychotherapy, psychedelics, and yoga can help people overcome a traumatic past and regain the capacity to be fully alive in the present.
