MODULE 2 OF THE CONTEMPLATIVE STUDIES IMMERSION
Many serious students of contemplative practice can spend years of earnest effort and not make progress. Likewise, high lamas and spiritual teachers can so egregiously abuse their students. It’s time we all recognize the warning signs of trauma and inform our Dharma practice with the latest findings and empowering methods for its integration.
One of Life's Greatest Challenges
Workshop: Ritual and the Trauma of Separation from Spirit
Class 1: Spiritual Bypass and Scientific Impasse
Class 2: The Nature of Trauma
Class 3: Trauma and the Brain
Class 4: Trauma and the Mind
Class 5: Trauma and Relationships
Class 6: Healing Trauma
Trauma-Informed Dharma combines a workshop on rituals with a series of six 2-hour classes designed to be a primer on trauma specifically for yogis, meditators, and those on the spiritual path who almost never receive sufficient training on this important subject.
The course synthesizes a vast body of our current clinical understanding of trauma, its impact on mind, brain, relationships and ancestry across generations as well as integrative methods for healing. It is presented in an accessible style for the lay audience and helps students understand why they have been struggling and what they can do to resolve life’s greatest challenges.
