It shapes the way we live, the way we love and the way we make sense of the world. It is the root of our deepest wounds.- --Intro of Movie Discussion-- Movie is a tender medium to access our deep perceptions and emotions. By discussing philosophical topic of the scenes, we can understand ourselves more and connect with people deeper. In the meanwhile, movie can help us to bypass the self-protection of our subconsciousness and then reach the deepest issues of ourselves. After discussion, we might have more awareness and courage to confront ourselves and life! --The atmosphere of discussion-- Open, respected, vulnerable, authentic and confidential. Please measure your condition. The extent of sharing depends on your willings. --The process of discussion-- 1.Check in: Share your recent situation associated to the film or everything. 2.Discussion: Discuss few questions about the films. 3.Check out: Share a word, sentence or phrase to represent your feelings of whole discussion. --Facilitator-- Lee Ping-Yi, a freelance writer from Taiwan. I'm into philosophy, psychology and spirituality. Two the meanings of my life are connecting people around the world and helping myself and people knowing ourselves more by my life experience. --Intro of the movie-- Official trailer: Film link: One in five Americans are diagnosed with mental illness in any given year. Suicide is the second most common cause of death in the US for youth aged 15-24. It kills over 800,000 people a year globally and 48,300 in the USA. Drug overdose kills 81,000 in the USA annually. The autoimmunity epidemic affects 24 million people in the USA. The film makers are asking the question “What is going on?” The interconnected epidemics of anxiety, chronic illness and substance abuse are, according to Dr. Gabor Maté, normal. But not in the way you might think. In The Wisdom of Trauma, we travel alongside physician, bestselling author and Order of Canada recipient Dr. Gabor Maté to explore why Western society is facing such epidemics. This is a journey with a man who has dedicated his life to understanding the connection between illness, addiction, trauma and society.
