Collective trauma has upended our lives and eroded certainty. Our trainings can help your and your community enhance resilience.

Images of war and refugees from Ukraine, Gaza, Israel, and twenty other conflict spots.  Inflation. Challenges to democracy. The aftermath of the pandemic. Social unrest. These major events have rapidly changed our world even as we live with the ever-present climate emergency and the unnatural disasters that result. No wonder we can feel off-balance and overwhelmed, sometimes anxious, sometimes paralyzed. No wonder hope feels tenuous.

The ongoing and cumulative effects of collective trauma on our nervous systems can be exhausting, affecting our individual and collective creativity and relationships. Individuals, organizations, congregations, and communities who invest in understanding the impact and energy of trauma---current, ongoing, generational, historical, or moral injury-induced can learn ways to support and enhance their well-being.

This time of upending is a marathon, not a sprint. Our trainings can help you or your team pace yourselves. But we all need more than resilience tools. In this changing landscape, we also need an understanding of the links between trauma, structures, and cycles of violence. We need nonviolent ways to work for justice that regenerate relationships and the planet. We need ways to listen from the heart as well as the mind.  Check out our offerings.

Strengthen your resilience for the long haul. Address current and historical trauma with justice and conflict transformation processes. Listen deeply to find your call in a changing world.
