Why and How Meditation Heals: The Research Explained by Dr. James Gordon

When you transform your trauma with meditation and embodiment exercises, you can experience:
~ A much enhanced sense of physiological and psychological balance
~ A greater capacity to use your imagination to appreciate life and solve the problems that inevitably come
~ Enhanced compassion for yourself and the pain you’ve experienced
~ Greater satisfaction and fulfillment in every aspect of who you are
~ The ability to share yourself more fully in relationships
~ A renewed sense of meaning and purpose
~ A willingness to explore new paths to becoming who you’re meant to be

James S. Gordon, MD, is a Harvard-educated psychiatrist, former researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health, Chair of the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy, and a clinical professor of Psychiatry and Family Medicine at Georgetown Medical School. He has authored or edited ten books, including Transforming Trauma: The Path to Hope and Healing. In 1991, he founded The Center for Mind-Body Medicine, which has become one of the world’s leaders in addressing population-wide psychological trauma.

Studies published in peer-reviewed journals have repeatedly demonstrated that Dr. Jim Gordon’s techniques can decrease levels of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by 80 percent or more in children, adolescents, and adults. Published research also demonstrates statistically significant decreases in depression, hopelessness, anxiety, anger, and sleep disturbance, and increases in quality of life.
