Doors at 6:30 pm
With Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D. and David Bullard, Ph.D.

$25 in advance; $30 at the door

In this talk, Dr. David Bullard and Dr. Isa Gucciardi present two very different meditative approaches to working with difficult memories, flashbacks, sleep disturbances and other experiences related to trauma. David will discuss Blink-Flash Meditation® – a short and simple visualization that can rapidly reduce trauma and promote integration and resilience. It is based on the EMDR-derived Flash Technique®. Blink-Flash helps to enable self-knowledge and deeper understandings after rapid decrease in anxiety/panic/fear and other negative trauma feelings and sensations such as disgust/shame/regret. Isa will discuss how Depth Hypnosis techniques can be applied to traumatic experience to create greater understanding and self-awareness. She will also talk about other ways of working with trauma in an altered state, including regression therapy and suggestion hypnosis. You will have opportunities to directly experience some of these techniques and to ask questions about which approaches might be best for you to consider.
