A Live Online Workshop with Gabor Mate

April 17 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


April 17-18, 10AM to 5PM Pacific time both days


Gabor Mate is renowned for his groundbreaking work with patients facing the extreme challenges of drug addiction, trauma, mental illness, and HIV. He has also extensively studied and written about the impacts of stress, trauma, and attention-deficit disorder on our bodies and minds.


In his work, Dr. Mate utilizes scientific research, case histories, as well as his own insights and experience to present a broad perspective that enlightens and empowers people to promote their own healing and that of those around them.


Join Dr. Mate for a two-day workshop diving deep into his work with the mind/body connection in health and wellness.


We all encounter stress. It plays a role in our personal and professional lives and it can take a heavy toll unless it is recognized and managed effectively and insightfully.


There is strong evidence to suggest that in nearly all chronic conditions-from cancer, ALS, or multiple sclerosis to autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or Alzheimer’s-hidden stress is a major predisposing factor. In an important sense, disease in an individual can be seen as the end point of a multigenerational emotional process. If properly understood, these conditions can provide important openings for compassion and self-awareness, which in turn are major tools in recovery and healing.


This workshop provides insights into why stress remains hidden in our culture and shows how to recognize and prevent it. Drawing on research findings and his own extensive experience in family practice and palliative care, Dr. Mate discusses the mind/body stress connection and the physiological consequences of stress. Understand the nature of stress and how our early environment programs us physiologically and psychologically into chronically stressful patterns of feeling and behavior.


This workshop is open to all individuals including clinicians who wish to learn about the stress-disease connection.
