Veg 101 and Aftershock: Confronting Trauma in a Violent World

First up, we speak with Bev Miller, R.D., about the Toronto Vegetarian Association’s free “Vegetarian 101: Moving Towards a Healthy Heart Diet” nutrition talks. The March 17 talk is dedicated to “Protein, carbohydrates, and fats,” and the final session on March 31 will tackle “Making healthy lifestyle habits.” Get a taste of Bev’s accessible and lively style as she busts some of the biggest food myths, and teaches you how to thrive nutritionally.

Then, we continue with a live conversation with activist, sanctuary co-founder, and psychotherapist, pattrice jones. In this interview we delve into jones’ poignant new book Aftershock: Confronting Trauma in a Violent World, A Guide for Activists and Their Allies. “Everyday,” writes jones, “people who push against violence and injustice or pull for peace and freedom must face their own fears. Many activists also must struggle with ‘aftershock,’ the physical and emotional reverberations of frightening or traumatizing experiences endured in the course of their activism.” On tomorrow’s program, we hear about some key aspects of trauma and how people can positively address these issues, with particular attention given to the relationship between trauma and animal activism.
