Nature is continually showing us how the seasonal change that emerges each part of the year can vary significantly from one year to the next. At times the change of season comes to us gradually and gently in transition. At other times it startles us with the drastic shift into the next season, only to take a step backwards, and then forward again. As it completes its resetting and transition to a new beginning, this next season takes hold.

Healing from trauma is for many, a lifetime process of change where we are resetting and choosing new beginnings to support and enhance our own growth and healing.
Sometimes these changes can feel gentle and slow in process and other times it can feel swift like a gust of wind. Most of us will experience the shift into our next "reset" and then experience a few steps backwards. But then we recommit to moving forward again as we learn to embrace this new "beginning". We all have the ability within us to "reset" our path, our minds, our beliefs and our choices as we step into this journey of uncertainty in reclaiming ourselves and our lives.
In this webinar, panelists will share their insights on recovering from trauma through life stories and the experiences that have supported them on their path to healing. Panelists will also share holistic practices that may help those who have suffered similar traumatic experiences.
This panel conversation is part of OMA's Trauma Program, designed for the sharing of stories around our diverse life experiences and exploring the connections among us all. Join us as we explore Reset and New Beginnings into Healing from Trauma.
Panelists: Marilyn Carpenter, Deb Carter, Angela Failor, Carlynn Graves, Callie Gropp, Elizabeth Homlish, Gail Hunter, Paula Ilochi, Mai Nguyen, Liza Vivio. See past panelists.

Let’s all drop the pretense that we are either normal, or abnormal…
We are all in the same support group: ordinary people who must deal with the struggles that come with being human. We all carry this heavy weight—a trauma, whether from childhood abuse, childhood adverse experiences (ACE's),domestic violence, gaslighting, bullying, emotional/ verbal abuse and manipulation, medical trauma, and injury. We all at the same time struggle to meet our basic human needs for connection, community, acceptance, and validation among ones who share our culture and language, or not, for authenticity–the capacity to feel what we feel and to be in touch with our bodies and to express what we feel when we need to.
Fundamentally, that is the ultimate trauma, the disconnection from ourselves…
In this webinar series we believe that in the presence of compassion, healing is possible. Only with compassion can we bear our pain. In the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying the author says, whatever you do don’t shut off your pain. Accept your pain and remain vulnerable. –Mai Nguyen, Panelist
