Veterans are returning home with an alarming rate of health and mental health issues related to PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Their lives and the lives of their families and communities are adversely affected. We need these men and women as active members of society. Is there a way to relieve our veterans of their pain and strife from PTSD? Yes.
Emma Seppala, Ph.D., Associate Director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University has conducted research on the effects of yoga-based interventions for combat veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with trauma and PTSD, with positive effect and healing. Join us as we listen in to an engaging and inspiring conversation about the relief of trauma and the cultivation of happiness.
