This year we are extremely delighted to have Dr. Michael
Mayer from Berkeley, CA to discuss bodymind healing practices in the treatment of trauma. Dr. Mayer is a licensed psychologist, hypnotherapist and Qigong/Tai Chi teacher who presents his approach to bodymind healing at professional conferences, national/international workshops, universities and hospitals; and he is a keynote speaker.
Bodymind Healing

Essential Practices
for the Treatment of Trauma
It is now well-recognized that somatic approaches are a necessary component in the treatment of Trauma. In this presentation, Dr. Michael Mayer will share his bodymind healing approach, which synthesizes Western and Eastern somatic approaches to healing trauma.
Discover how Qigong and the internal martial arts of China, which were developed to reverse sympathetic nervous system over-reactivity in the midst of danger, can help treating trauma.
• Learn how Qigong can be integrated into trauma treatment in psychotherapy without ever using a word about Qigong and without doing a Qigong movement.
• Theory, experiential exercises, case examples, and research will be used to illustrate.

For those interested in a more extensive workshop, Dr. Mayer will be presenting October 25–27 through Cascadia.
We Hope You Can Join Us!
