Broadcast on January 30, 2023
With Arielle Schwartz, PhD
Hosted by Lisa Bonnice

In this engaging and experiential talk, you will be introduced to an integrative, mind-body approach to working with generational wounds. Inspired by her work on post-traumatic growth, Dr. Arielle Schwartz highlights the strength of the human spirit, even in the face of adversity. As you cultivate transgenerational resilience, this becomes the legacy that you leave behind for future generations.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • An experiential mind-body approach to working with ancestral trauma
  • How to define resilience and identify key practices to support your post traumatic growth
  • A practice to support transgenerational empathy (a short inquiry/journaling practice followed by mindful-body awareness)
