Hosted by Akaya Windwood, President, Rockwood Leadership Institute
With Gabor Maté, MD; James Gordon, MD, Founder and Director of The Center for Mind–Body Medicine, professor at Georgetown Medical School; Staci Haines, national leader in the field of Somatics, teacher, author and pathfinder in healing sexual traumas.
In our culture, illnesses, traumas and addictions are usually viewed as the problems of individuals, but they are, above all, social phenomena. Physical and emotional disturbances vary a lot culture by culture. Ours seems to be very prone to creating cancer, depression, obesity, stress, sexual dysfunction and violence, and anxiety disorders. Three brilliant healers and thinkers on the social context of illness explore how our society generates illness, and how, by understanding those processes, we can build up our resilience and achieve higher degrees of balance and wellness, skills we can pass on to our children. They will also look at what we can do to begin transforming our society into a source of solidarity, mutual aid and healing, rather than of disease, separation and fear.
