Please join Laura Khoudari '00 in a thoughtful discussion of her book "Lifting Heavy Things: Healing Trauma One Rep at a Time," with Ju Hong, director of Be Well. In this innovative title, trauma-informed strength trainer and wellness coach Khoudari brings a fresh approach to healing after trauma— using strength training as an embodied movement practice. Compassionate, witty and fastidiously researched, Khoudari’s debut, "Lifting Heavy Things," is a breakthrough title that empowers and inspires readers to develop resilience and build emotional and physical strength through lifting weights while mindful of the ways that trauma can compromise the well-being of the mind and body. 

Dinner will precede the book talk. 

The event is FREE and open to students, faculty, and staff. 

Please register here!

This event is sponsored by Be Well and the MHC Alumnae Association. Special thanks to the Department of Physical Education and Athletics and Public Saftey and Service!
