The Q&As on Fri Sep 13 & Sat Sep 14 will be moderated by Bob Roth, an American Transcendental Meditation teacher and author.

With courage and, of course, humor, master impressionist, comedian, and Saturday Night Live veteran Darrell Hammond reveals his journey in discovering a history of childhood trauma that was locked away for over 40 years. Brilliant in the spotlight, yet behind the scenes he was misdiagnosed and wrongly medicated for decades, struggling with drugs, alcohol, self harm and flashbacks. This moving portrait artfully crafts an inspiring story of hope and resilience.

"Hammond's hero's journey of helping others is now well underway - a sign of his hard-won and ongoing healing." - Psychology Today

Bob Roth, moderator for Q&As Fri Sep 13 & Sat Sep 14:
Bob Roth is the author of the 2018 New York Times bestseller, Strength in Stillness. As CEO of the David Lynch Foundation, Bob has helped bring meditation to more than a million students in underserved schools in 35 countries, to military veterans and their families who suffer from post-traumatic stress, and to women and children who are survivors of domestic violence. Bob also directs the Center for Health & Wellness, which is bringing meditation to companies, government organizations, and nonprofit organizations. Bob is the host of the SiriusXM radio show, “Success Without Stress.”

Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, MD, guest at Q&A Fri Sep 13:

His most recent 2014 New York Times Science best seller, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Treatment of Trauma transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain’s wiring—specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust. He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, mindfulness techniques, play, yoga, and other therapies.
