From Clever to Wise – How Healing our Trauma Heals the World

Highlights from this session:

Rola shared in a profound way about her shift away from being a savior to being a healing presence and the importance of embodied self-care versus just prioritizing the external action. She also speaks about what learning to be with pain and suffering in a non-overwhelming way looks, sounds and feels like and how it reflects her story of away from clever to wise and bringing a more trauma-informed approach into health institutions.

“Wisdom is applied knowledge. If you know something, you're clever. We don't need any more cleverness. We need to be applying the knowledge that we have, we need to be applying all of the learnings that we have, whether they've come from science or the wisdom traditions. “

If you sign up for the summit package you also receive this extra gift from Rola: Access to her iTHRIVE quiz and newsletter with many free resources.
