About this Event

"Trauma comes to everyone. It is a part of, not apart from, our lives."

Dr. James S. Gordon, a Harvard-educated psychiatrist and founder of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine will join the International Arts + Mind Lab for a presentation and interactive workshop on trauma and immersive healing techniques.

Dr. Gordon has dedicated his life to healing population-wide trauma using an integrative arts approach. He started the Center for Mind-Body Medicine in 1991 with the goal of bringing self-awareness, self-care and group support into the center of healthcare around the world.

He and his 130 international faculty have worked with populations as diverse as refugees from wars in the Balkans, the Middle East, and Africa; firefighters and U. S. military personnel and veterans and their families; student/parent/teacher school shooting survivors; and Native American children and their families—as well as stressed out professionals, stay-at-home mothers, inner-city children, White House officials, health professionals and medical students, and people struggling with severe emotional and physical illnesses.

A peace-maker and consensus-builder, Dr. Gordon is known for cross-cultural relationship building as well as deep life-changing therapeutic work with individuals and families. Through a mixture of art, music, movement, creative writing, meditation and guided imagery, his approach helps individuals think critically about their own identities and how they view themselves.

Dr. Gordon’s latest book, The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma, helps us understand that trauma is a universal human experience, not a pathological anomaly.

In The Transformation, he guides us step by step in a comprehensive evidence-based program to reverse the psychological and biological damage that trauma causes. Drawing on the latest scientific research, 50 years of clinical experience, timeless wisdom, and inspiring life stories, he shows us how we can meet the challenges that trauma brings while discovering the ordinary joys as well as the meaning and purpose of our lives.

***Dr. Gordon will be giving away copies of his new book, The Transformation, to Dialog Series participants on a first come-first serve basis.***
