The iconic feminist talks with leading Jewish scholar and teacher Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, Ph.D., about her empowering new book, Wounds Into Wisdom.
Do we carry the wounds of our ancestors in our genes? As the world faces fresh waves of antisemitism and aggression against women, Gloria Steinem talks with Rabbi Tirzah Firestone about the new field of intergenerational trauma healing. When family members suffer traumas such as war, poverty, mental illness, and addiction, painful patterns can become lodged within the family, profoundly influencing the lives of future generations. Join us for an intimate discussion based upon Firestone’s new book Wounds Into Wisdom, as Gloria and Tirzah explore the trauma legacies of Jews around the world, and women’s centuries-long histories of oppression. Discover how we can learn to release the patterns and behaviors that have come down to us and strengthen and energize the legacies that are positive and life-giving.
