THIS EVENT HAS ENDED
Early on in her clinical practice, psychoanalyst Pilar Jennings was presented with a particularly difficult case: a six-year-old girl who, traumatized by loss, had stopped speaking. Challenged by the limitations of her training to respond effectively to the isolating effect of childhood trauma, Dr. Jennings took the unconventional path of inviting her friend Lama Pema—a kindly Tibetan Buddhist monk who experienced his own life-shaping trauma at a very young age—into their sessions. In the warm therapeutic space they created, the young girl slowly began to heal.

in Dr. Jennings new book To Heal a Wounded Heart: The Transformative Power of Buddhism and Psychotherapy in Action presents this healing journey taken by Dr. Jennings, Lama Pema, and the young girl as a fascinating case study at the intersection of Western psychology and Buddhist teachings. It is a story for therapists, parents, Buddhists, or any of us who hold out the hope that even the deepest childhood wounds can be the portal to our capacity to love and be loved.

Join Dr. Jennings for an in depth conversation about her experience writing this inspiring story as well as her life and work as a mindful psychoanalyst and teacher.
