Special event – The Wisdom of Trauma

“The Wisdom of Trauma” World Premiere reached 4 million people in 220 countries in June when it was first released. This ground-breaking film provides an alternative narrative and a vision of hope, compassion and healing in our very divided world.

Blue Knot is honoured to be an affiliate for the relaunch for this film for its screening from October 4th-10th leading up to very our own Blue Knot Day later in the month.

The film features Dr. Gabor Maté, not only a leading trauma expert but a survivor who openly shares his personal challenges, with guest appearances by Russell Brand and Tim Ferriss. It is accompanied by additional talks, panels, meditations, music and integration sessions that feature over 30+ guests including Bessel van der Kolk, Jewel, Jamie Lee Curtis, Richard Schwartz, Ashley Judd, and others.

Blue Knot’s work like that of Gabor Mate focusses on possibilities for healing and trauma awareness. Our culture is not trauma-informed, and many people living with the effects of their trauma whether it is mental distress, chronic pain, physical health issues, addictive behaviours and isolation slip through the cracks, and don’t get the care that they need.

This is a film and series which inspires and unites. When we come together and begin to embrace our own humanity — to see each other not for what we’ve done, but for what we’ve been through – we can then begin to put the pieces together for a more compassionate world.

Trauma is the invisible force that shapes our lives. It shapes the way we live, the way we love and the way we make sense of the world. It is the root of our deepest wounds.

Dr. Maté gives us a new vision: a trauma-informed society in which parents, teachers, physicians, policy-makers and legal personnel are not concerned with fixing behaviours, making diagnoses, suppressing symptoms and judging, but see instead to understand the sources from which troubling behaviours and diseases spring in the wounded human soul.

When you register https://blueknotfoundation–sand.thrivecart.com/supporter-fall/ , you’ll also get INSTANT ACCESS to The Wisdom of Trauma Companion Booklet.
