James Gordon - The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma

The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma

Join us for a lecture and discussion on The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing  After Trauma by James S. Gordon, M.D., in which the world-recognized authority on post-traumatic stress and acclaimed mind-body medicine pioneer presents the first comprehensive, evidence-based program for reversing the psychological and biological damage caused by trauma.

The Transformation represents the culmination of Dr. Gordon’s fifty years as a practitioner, teacher, and advocate of integrative approaches to overcoming psychological trauma and stress. Offering eye-opening research, innovative prescriptive support, and inspirational stories, The Transformation for the first time gives the reading public clear guidance in the methods that Dr. Gordon has developed and that he and his team have used to relieve the suffering of hundreds of thousands of children and adults around the world.
Dr. Gordon’s work is grounded in a basic understanding:

  • Trauma will come to all of us, sooner or later
  • Each of us has the capacity to understand and heal ourselves.

So, what if we lived in a world where trauma was seen as an accepted, inevitable human experience, and not a pathological anomaly? What if healing and reversing trauma was the key to attaining the joy and fulfilment that every human deserves?
In The Transformation, Dr. Gordon answers these questions and delivers an inviting narrative that allows readers to easily use his step-by-step evidence-based program—which so many others have used—to reverse the psychological and biological damage that trauma causes, and to restore their hope and heal themselves.
