Event DescriptionThis workshop presents the Pain Paradox, an East-West theory of trauma-related suffering that suggests that the “solution” to unwanted states is not to avoid, suppress, or intellectualize, but rather to carefully engage, accept, process, and even use painful material in the context of a compassionate therapeutic environment.
