Healing with David Kessler

I have learned that talking is healing and I am excited to share this free conversation with the mainstream. I hope you will join me and some very special guests in the ongoing discussion about healing from the pain of grief and trauma.

Join me as we explore ways to focus on the power of our own healing from grief, trauma, and life’s disappointments. What we resist pursues us, what we face transforms us.
