This week's hosts
Guest: Emily Cox graduated from Arcadia’s Masters’ of International Peace and Conflict Program and is now a trauma therapist and yoga instructor. Emily combines trauma healing and body work. Emily says, "In the past few years I’ve worked as a therapist specializing in sexual and domestic violence and healing through the body. A way I take care of myself, given the challenges in my life are, to map out and make space for my anxious and fearful thoughts, and then practice self-compassion so I can respond or show up from a grounded place for the work."
Facilitator: The Rev. William (Bill) Jacobsen, Ph.D. Bill recently retired from Arcadia University where he taught in the International Peace and Conflict Resolution Masters’ program. Bill formerly worked in Burundi and Rwanda post Genocide, as with several refugee communities in the United States, with African Quakers, helping communities to rebuild after the horrors of the Genocide and displacement from people’s homes. He also works with the Alternatives to Violence Project International in SCI Phoenix and with the Compassionate Listening Project International, training people in the practices of deep listening and staying present.
