Interrupting Cycles: Trauma Recovery Yoga, with Brenda Hershey of TRY Global

Wednesday, 15 March 2023
12:00 PM GMT


Live Webinar Session has ended now.

Brenda Hershey is an author, international humanitarian, researcher and TRY Global's President & Founder. She became a certified TRY instructor in 2019 and had been teaching the classes regularly when she experienced a series of her own “Big T” traumas. Because she had built up such a high level of resilience teaching TRY, she found herself equipped with the tools to self-regulate during those dark moments, and process/ release that trauma.

Brenda has a BA degree in International Relations, a MA in Community Development, and is currently obtaining a Certificate in Traumatic Stress Studies from the Trauma Research Foundation. Having more than two years of humanitarian fieldwork in the Middle East, Brenda is passionate about integrating the TRY method into traditional humanitarian efforts because she knows firsthand that these tools are, in fact, life-changing.

This event will look at the theme of Interrupting Cycles. We are delighted to be able to introduce you to the work of TRY Global, and organisation delivering life-changing practices to conflict survivors in places like Kurdistan and Ukraine.

During this session, Brenda will tell us about her humanitarian work, and how she delivers neuroscience-based therapeutic skills to people who are dealing with the consequences of trauma.

Brenda will also take us through a seated practice, so you can experience this gentle process for yourself. She has also kindly agreed to gift a recorded meditation practice to all who register for the event. 

This event has been organised as part of the 28th Global Brain Awareness Week initiative, hosted by the Dana Foundation.

The NeuroDevelopment Institute exists to create awareness of the benefits understanding more about our brains can bring, and the changes that can create in the human condition.

We are grateful for your support, and ask you to share these free events and resources with friends and colleagues who may also benefit from them.
