An Exploration into Healing Trauma

An eight-part course with over 11 hours of video

“We may not be responsible for the world that created our minds, but we can take responsibility for the mind with which we create our world.”
– Gabor Maté

Are you overwhelmed by stress and yearning to reconnect with a sense of inner peace?

In a world marked by heartbreak, stress, and trauma—have you found yourself carrying the weight of a broken heart? Are you longing to be your true self, unburdened and fully present?

If you are a parent or caretaker, a therapist, a spiritual seeker, or a person who is looking for a profound understanding of their traumatic imprint (and the hidden beliefs that sustain it), then this course is for you.

We invite you to join this shared journey of self-discovery, where the fragments of your being are embraced for a purpose, and every difficulty becomes a profound lesson. We’ll be compassionately exploring the effects of ADHD, abandonment, childhood wounds, addiction, and so much more.

If you’ve sensed the gap between who you are and who you aspire to be, this is the space to bridge that divide and embody your fullest self. Embark on a transformative journey towards healing and self-discovery with Gabor Maté’s full course, Pathways to Wholeness.
