Gabor Maté - trauma, addiction, healing, economics...-
Gabor Maté (b.1944) is a Hungarian-Canadian physician, author, and important teacher of therapeutic and transformational healing. His mother gave him away to friends as a baby to save him from the Nazi Holocaust.
I encourage anyone interested in how we might enable a better humanity to see the extraordinary film The Wisdom of Trauma - thewisdomoftrauma.com.
Also, read his books.
His work, rather like that of Kazimierz Dabrowski (Positive Disintegration), offers evidence and guidance for re-imagining human societies, education, economics and governance.
