One Life, Two Journeys: Childhood Trauma & Transcendent Spirituality

January 12 at 11:00 am - 12:30 pm PST

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.


Mark Forman, PhD is a licensed clinical psychologist with over twenty years experience working with individuals, couples, teens, and families. His text – A Guide to Integral Psychotherapy Complexity, Integration, and Spirituality in Practice – is one of the seminal works in the field of Integral Psychotherapy.

Dr. Forman is more recently the author of The Monster’s Journey: From Trauma to Connection, which is a reimagining of the The Hero’s Journey archetype for those who have suffered early childhood trauma. It is a book meant primarily for clients who are trauma survivors.

Dr. Forman has studied philosophy and religion and is a long-term practitioner of yoga, reiki, martial arts, and meditation. He has trained in a wide variety of therapeutic settings and with a number of different clinical populations over the past two decades. His areas of training in psychotherapy include Integral-developmental, Jungian, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, multicultural, transpersonal, trauma-based, and attachment-based psychotherapies.
