Pedram Shojai is a former Taoist monk who is an accomplished physician of Chinese medicine and has lectured on wellness all around the world. His no-nonsense approach teaches esoteric concepts to Western readers in an easy-to-understand way. Ann Louise and Pedram jump in with both feet to discuss the reality of trauma in our personal lives, and in the world in which we live – “it hums in the background of our lives and robs us of the joy, faith, peace, and love we fully deserve.” They discuss the difference between ‘big T and little t trauma,’ the ways that trauma can alter and impact the physical body if left unaddressed, and most importantly the ways we can halt the cycle of trauma today to prevent future generations from swimming in the trauma of their childhoods. Pedram is the best-selling author of “Trauma: Healing Your Past to Find Freedom Now” and his popular podcast “The Urban Monk” invites you to join in the conversation exploring what it means to live with balance in the 21st century.
What a interesting perspective. I really learned a lot.
