This era of human history is witnessing tremendous trauma on a global scale. It seems impossible to try and stop such tragedy despite our greatest desires to do so. In light of this unstoppable, irreversible and seemingly self-destructive era of our humanity, we need to ask: What possible good can come of all this violence? Once again, if we view trauma as a part of life, we must consider the possibility that the large scale trauma that we are experiencing has the potential of helping us evolve into a more ethical, moral and caring species. This global trauma can be viewed as the pain of the human species going through the birthing canal to be born into a new era of human consciousness.

I know asking you to think about January right now might be a bit much – yet – the early registration deadline for Toward a More Peaceful World is this coming Friday, December 19 and I don’t want you to miss out on it.
If you are on the fence about attending, here are some really good benefits to consider:
• Participating in Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) has really good odds of making you feel better – e.g. better sleep, more relaxed muscles, calm-alert mind, etc. You get to learn it from the one who created it — a rare opportunity in and of itself — and then, after the two-day workshop, you get to go home and continue its benefits by practicing at home on your own because it really is that easy to learn.
• Learning more about stress, trauma and the obstacles to conflict resolution from Dr. David Berceli is apt to change the way you see the world (personal, local and global) – cycles we seem stuck in will make more sense — and recognizing what needs to change is likely to make you feel more optimistic.
