Childhood or adult trauma in its various forms—Adverse childhood experiences, bullying, domestic violence, emotional and verbal abuse, gaslighting, medical trauma and illness, can all distort one's perception and belief of the truth of who "I am."
The result is a continual layering of negative, distorted imprints that alter our own perception of the unique and authentic truth of who we are and have always been.
These layers of distorted, negative beliefs affect our ability to "remember" ourselves and who we came here uniquely to be.
"Rebirthing" is remembering the "I Am" that always lives underneath those layers, waiting to be "reborn" and awakened as we remember and become whole. When we begin to embrace and honor ourselves in our experiences and release all that does not belong to us, we can step onto this path of "rebirthing" into the truth of ourselves and the freedom to heal.
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, December 14 at 6:30 when we explore The 'Rebirthing' of Self in Healing from Trauma.

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
