This event starts in:
Homework for each session is to read a chapter from the book The Monster’s Journey: From Trauma to Connection, Dr. Mark Forman
One Life: Two Journeys will be a six-session course focused on issues of childhood trauma and its relationship to transcendent spirituality, and will include silent meditation, journaling, peer-to-peer support, and ample time for questions and answers addressing these two areas of life. The guiding text for the course will be The Monster’s Journey: From Trauma to Connection, which is authored by Dr. Forman.
We will meet every 1st and 3rd Friday of each month for approximately 3 months.
Please note: Although the course will focus on important psychological and spiritual issues, and will allow for personal sharing, the course itself is not intended as a form of psychotherapy and does not substitute for the importance of individual trauma therapy with a qualified professional.
