About the event:

Based on Dr. Maté’s new book: The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture

Half of the North American adults suffer from chronic illness – a fact Western medicine views largely in terms of individual predispositions and habits.

Western medicine imposes two separations, neither tenable scientifically. First, it separates the mind from the body, largely assuming that most chronic illnesses have nothing to do with people’s emotional and psychological experiences. And yet, a large and irrefutable body of research has clearly shown that the physiologic and behavioral functioning of human beings can be understood only if we integrate our body functions with those of the mind: functions such as awareness, emotions, our interpretations of and responses to events, and our relationships with other people. Second, Western practice views people’s health as separate from the social environment, ignoring social determinants of health such as class, gender, economic status, and race. Such factors, in reality, are more important influences on health and longevity than individual predispositions and personal factors such as genes, cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and so on.

This talk will be conversational with Dr. Gabor Maté and Dr. Maryam Zeineddin and will show how a society dedicated to material pursuits rather than genuine human needs and spiritual values stresses its members, undermines healthy child development, and dooms many to chronic illness, from diabetes to heart disease, from autoimmune conditions to cancer.

We are excited for our community to come together, break the stigma and redefine what mental health and well-being mean to all of us as a society, community, and self. Please spread the word and attend live or virtually on March 29th.
