Education is essential to personal and social transformation. Brooklyn Peace Center offers workshops, seminars and webinars on a wide range of topics related to the work of peacebuilding. Topics cover the wide and deep field of peacebuilding and conflict transformation, and our pedagogical approach places high value on intersectionality and context. Topics include, but are not limited to: trauma awareness and resilience-building, issues in international/local peace and conflict (historical and contemporary), antiviolence and antiracism, and more.

Wounded Healer: Trauma-informed Spiritual Care
This two-hour workshop introduces participants to key concepts related to trauma awareness, resilience-building, and ancient/contemporary spiritual practices.
Across religious traditions, spiritual disciplines, from breathwork and stillness to vocal harmonization (e.g., singing, chanting, etc.) and embodied practices (e.g., dancing, movement, etc.), provide a deep wellspring of resources to develop models of trauma-informed spiritual care.
Integrating neuroscience, models of nonviolent/antiviolent conflict transformation, and contemplative/embodied spirituality, the Wounded Healer workshop provides an introduction to the basic models, tools, and practices from which clergy, clinicians, and community workers are able to develop a trauma-informed approach to spiritual care that is both contextual and intersectional.
This workshop is designed for those who seek to understand how trauma impacts spiritual care, and who are working toward building peace within their spheres of influence.
