The Wisdom of Trauma

A community Q&A with Gabor Maté

Join Dr. Gabor Maté and SAND founders Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo for a community Q&A.

It has been almost a year since the release of The Wisdom of Trauma film and it is still being screened in every corner of the planet. After the wave this film has stirred in our hearts, we are inviting the community to come together and ask Dr. Gabor Maté their burning questions about the film, their lives and in the world. Much has changed since the release of the film and we are looking forward to creating a space for connection.

Zaya and Maurizio begin the Q&A with a short interview of Dr. Maté, followed by questions from participants and a discussion on current events, changes in trauma healing and thoughts for the future.
