SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 24 2017 PeaceMaker Workshop
DISCOUNT CODE: PEACEMAKER
Hosted at WISR in Berkeley 2930 Shattuck Ave #300, Berkeley, CA 94705
In 1944, sixteen-year-old Edith Eger was sent to Auschwitz. There she endured unimaginable experiences, including being made to dance for the infamous Josef Mengele. Over the coming months, Edith’s bravery helped her sister to survive, and led to her bunkmates rescuing her during a death march. When their camp was finally liberated, Edith was pulled from a pile of bodies, barely alive.
In The Choice, Dr Edith Eger shares her experience of the Holocaust and the remarkable stories of those she has helped ever since. Today, she is an internationally acclaimed psychologist whose patients include survivors of abuse and soldiers suffering from PTSD.
Dr. Edie explains how many of us live within a mind that has become a prison, and shows how freedom becomes possible once we confront our suffering. Dr. Edie is part of the Idea Architects Collective of thought and culture shifters. Her story of survival, freedom, and forgiveness is remarkable and inspiring.
‘The Choice is a gift to humanity. One of those rare and eternal stories that you don’t want to end and that leave you forever changed.’ —DESMOND TUTU, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
“I would take Edie Eger on an op with me any day.”
—U.S. Navy SEALs Commander (Ret.) MARK DIVINE, bestselling author of The Way of the SEAL and Unbeatable Mind
“I have learned from this gifted human being, this indomitable survivor, this accomplished therapist, more about humanity and suffering and resilience than from all my advanced degrees. This effervescent, brawny nanogenarian has more than a story to tell, a therapy to offer, a journey to guide; she brings us to a new way of being.”
—Dr. ROBERT KOFFMAN, former Director of Psychological Health, U.S. Navy
