When we are "open to doing practices that consistently induce positive emotions, we can widen and deepen the psychological resources available to us in times of stress."
We can learn to broaden our ability to become open to gratitude, allowing the positive, nurturing and healing effects in our lives to take hold, giving the opportunity to heal and grow from the traumas and uncover the truth of ourselves—the essence that lies underneath the memories of past traumatic experiences.
Simply being told to “show some gratitude” is not enough, especially when you’re already having a hard time. And that’s many of us right now. Gratitude is much more than just turning away from or minimizing the pain, suffering or loss from our traumas.
The practice or "framing of gratitude" is something we can learn to do—to evoke the emotion of gratitude and to potentially strengthen it as a trait over time. We can deliberately reflect on what’s going well and the positive attributes that life might be providing us, as a way making the emotion of gratitude more readily available and powerful to us.
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 on Tuesday, November 30 at 6:30 when we explore The Healing Powers of Gratitude.
Panelists: Marilyn Carpenter, Deb Carter, Callie Gropp, Angela Failor, Elizabeth Homlish, Gail Hunter, Mai Nguyen, Liza Vivio See past panelists.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE... Others have walked this path before you, including the panelists in this series. We are all connected on this journey of healing, of both self and humanity, from our own individual traumas as well as our collective traumas.
