A message from Black Lives Matter Global network:
This is a critical moment for the world and for our movement. Many of us are holding depression and grief from devastating losses of community members to both COVID-19 and police violence.
How do we work through generational trauma? How do we confront and transform histories of abuse on our bodies?
Watch Black Lives Matter Global Network Managing Director Kailee Scales as she joins renowned physician, author, and philosopher Deepak Chopra, M.D. to discuss how trauma can affect our health. Dr. Chopra shared ways to bring healing and transformation to feelings of stress, trauma, and fear. Note: This video was filmed prior to #GeorgeFloyd’s murder by the police.
At a time when COVID-19 and police violence are creating imbalance in our community and within ourselves, Kailee and Dr. Chopra explore healing work and practices that center our collective safety and wellbeing. Dr. Chopra also leads a guided meditation during their conversation.
Now, more than ever, we need to prioritize healing and lift-up practices that support resilience, wellness, and safety.
Together, Kailee and Dr. Chopra talked about everything from mental health during coronavirus to healing from generational trauma.
We hope that this conversation about the problems we face, and the solutions we deserve, help to fortify and sustain us through these challenging times.
