Talking points: trauma, culture, collective healing

Wow! Very grateful to have had the opportunity to sit with Thomas recently to discuss not just his book, but his vision and mission for people everywhere. This was a deeply moving conversation; Thomas’ perspective on how trauma forms and how it needs to be healed will be resonating with me for a long, long time. Check this out.
