Event Description

STOP & BE! is an event to support the healing of individuals suffering from trauma and post traumatic stress as well as their family members and care givers. It features Zen Buddhist Monk, Vietnam Veteran and Author of AT HELL’S GATE: A Soldier’s Journey from War to Peace, Claude AnShin Thomas, who will give a talk on his journey from living with post traumatic stress to being at peace with his unpeacefulness. He will also offer practices that support living with these realities and respond to questions from those participating.
The event also features Nirlep Kaur, who will introduce Kundalini yoga; and Lynda Pedley who will complete the day with iRest® Yoga Nidra, a guided meditation practice that combines deep relaxation and resiliency training with meditative inquiry, which is offered widely at Veteran’s Centres and Military Bases in the U.S. and is growing in Canada.
