Conversations on Trauma and Awakening: Ana Atem

"Suffering was my great catalyst for change, I would never be where I am today if it wasn’t for the painful experiences I had in life. I am grateful for them today and I am hoping to always learn from my experiences."

Ana, originally from Brazil and now living in Vancouver, is a recent Rhodes College counselling grad who finds peace in meditation, exercise and hugging trees :). She is mother to a 14-year-old son, who she describes as the greatest teacher of her life.  

We sat down with the lovely Ana Atem to discuss trauma and growth.

Thank you Ana for being part of our Trauma & Awakening interview series and for sharing your insight :).
