Is Your Story Making You Sick? A Deep Dive Into the Film Reshaping Recovery (be sure to watch the documentary prior to the webinar)

Live Q&A with the filmmakers of the feature documentary film “Is Your Story Making You Sick?” which chronicles eight people from all walks of life as they bravely confront their stories and work through a variety of stress-related illnesses including depression, anxiety, addictions, and PTSD. Like all people, these courageous participants carry the imprint of their past within their body-mind system. That imprint is their story. It determines their emotions and can even make them sick. Using a variety of psychotherapeutic modalities including ethics-based mindfulness, meditation, somatic experiencing, shamanic practices, shadow and dream work, and more, facilitators guide the group to higher perspectives, a new story, change, and healing. Expert interviews of Dr. Gabor Mate, Dr. Dan Siegel, Ellen Langer PhD, Carl Hart PhD, Bruce Lipton PhD, Dr. Lissa Rankin, Dr. Ann Marie Chiasson, Eric Garland PhD, and others, inject credible science into the narrative. Learn from the film’s program director, Dr. Mark Pirtle, ask questions, and take home an evidence-based framework for narrative medicine you can immediately use with your clients.
