Meditation: A Healing Response to Trauma

Meditatio Seminar 2020

With Laurence Freeman OSB

Given that most of our communication and exploration is - for the moment – online,
what better time to take part in an online retreat?

The practice of meditation within a cultural and wisdom tradition has been shown to help refugees heal these invisible wounds of trauma.

In 2019, the UN refugee agency reported 26 million refugees and over 4 million asylum-seekers worldwide. We need a public mental health response to help forcibly displaced individuals to heal from trauma.

Meditatio is convening leaders in the field of meditation, mind-body medicine, and global mental health to explore meditation as a healing response to trauma. All those interested in learning about the healing practice of meditation and an effective way of sharing with refugees and other survivors of trauma are welcome to attend.
