Presenters: Bessel van der Kolk & Licia Sky
If you’re a health professional, therapist, yoga instructor, or simply want to deepen your understanding of how trauma impacts the brain, mind, and body, this program will immerse you into the latest science on healing trauma.

Join bestselling author, psychiatrist, and cofounder of the Trauma Research Foundation (TRF) Bessel van der Kolk and somatic educator and TRF cofounder Licia Sky for a profound two-day, in-person workshop in which you will explore how trauma impacts the body. Through embodied awareness practices, theater work, neurofeedback, and more, you will learn
