Combining 30 years of meditative training and experience with 25 years of clinical practice, Dr. Forman's newest initiative is to create spaces and workshops that help those with early childhood trauma who also have a strong drive towards transcendent forms of spirituality. The initiative is undergirded by his recent book, The Monster's Journey: From Trauma to Connection, which offers a reimagining of Joseph Campbell's The Hero's Journey for those who have suffered childhood trauma.
The inaugural free course for this initiative will start Friday, November 3rd, 2023, 11am-1pm Pacific Time on Integral Life. It will be a six-session course - a session every two weeks - focused on issues of childhood trauma and its relationship to spirituality, and will include meditation, journaling, peer-to-peer support, and ample times for questions and answers addressing the intersection of these two subjects. It will rely on The Monster's Journey text.
The website for Trauma and Spirituality will be housed at traumaandspirituality.net and is currently under construction. Please join our mailing list below to learn more about this ongoing initiative.
