The Wisdom of Trauma Film: We Are Partners!

Only very little do we speak about an epidemy much worse than the one filling private and public space in connection with coronavirus. But its symptoms are everywhere around us and they shape our lives as well as the societal setup and functioning. It is an epidemy of traumatization, both individual and collective. We bring The Wisdom of Trauma film into the Czech Republic and Slovakia and we initiate a wider discussion towards trauma informed society.

To learn more about the movie and trauma in general go to

"Trauma is the invisible force that shapes our lives. 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."

Dr. Maté gives us a new vision: a trauma-informed society in which parents, teachers, physicians, policy-makers and legal personnel are not concerned with fixing behaviors, making diagnoses, suppressing symptoms and judging, but seek instead to understand the sources from which troubling behaviors and diseases spring in the wounded human soul. With this film, we hope to touch many people, begin a conversation, and develop a common understanding about how trauma impacts our individual lives, communities and society as a whole.

The Mindfulness Foundation and Trauma

Why do we do all this? Because in the Foundation, we strive to enhance compassion, kindness, (self)acceptance, generosity and love in human beings... and this is impossible in traumatized individuals living in traumatized, fragmented, dehumanised and despiritualized society.

“Every human has a true authentic self. Trauma is the disconnection from it and healing is the reconnection to it.” Dr. Gabor Maté


Some inmates in the US have a chance to reflect their trauma thanks to the Compassionate Prison project
