A 4-day live, online retreat hosted by Gabor Maté, Betsy Polatin and Julie Yau.
This moment of crisis and uncertainty provides a potent opportunity to recognize old trauma dynamics and create new ways to respond informed by trauma education.
This program will feature Dr. Gabor Maté’s unique therapeutic work and teaching, Compassionate Inquiry, enhanced by movement and breathwork led by Betsy Polatin. We will explore emotional realities and traumatic imprints that spiritual modalities often ignore. It will be an in-depth program, suitable for therapists, spiritual seekers and anyone looking for a profound, experiential understanding of their traumatic imprint and the hidden beliefs that sustain it.
The teaching will be articulated in four main themes:
1. Recognizing Trauma Dynamics
2. Staying Grounded and Connected
3. Expanding Compassion
4. Developing Resilience
**Please note: the format of this retreat will be similar to last year’s. At the beginning of each day, Gabor will share his teachings. Some of the content will be similar to what was presented at the “Returning to Ourselves” 2020 retreat. Much of the time will be spent again in one-on-one Compassionate Inquiry practice led by Gabor with additional input from Julie Yau. Betsy will be guiding us again through breathing and somatic practices.
This retreat will allow you to deepen your experience and understanding of the material.
