No one is without trauma in their histories. In this seminar, we will discuss attachment, both from a Buddhist perspective as well as from what half a century of research tells us of its at times ameliorating effects on traumatic experiences. We will examine trauma in its overarching forms, its neurobiological effects, and its subsequent influence on “mal-”adaptive behaviors like addictions. Participants will leave with an understanding of the role that mindfulness can play in recovery – both its benefits and limitations – and several tried and true mindfulness practices that they can select from, as well as a broader consideration of additional resources and well-researched modalities for healing from trauma.
