“Inviting People to be in the Present and Learn from the Past”

An invitation to reflect on the importance of empowering each other to form a human family despite our differences.  A brief chat about the January 6th events and how can we evolve rather than revolve and learn from history.

A native of Hungary, Edith Eva Eger was just 16 years old in 1944 when she experienced one of the worst evils the human race has ever known. As a Jew living in Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe, she and her family were sent to Auschwitz. Her parents lost their lives there. She and her sister survived even though they were subjected to horrible treatment by Dr. Josef Mengele and survived the Death March in Austria. In 1949 she and her young family moved to the United States. In 1969 she received her degree in Psychology from the University of Texas, El Paso. She then pursued her doctoral internship at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center at Fort Bliss, Texas. She has spent much of her professional time working with members of the military helping them to recover from, and cope with, the ongoing effects of PTSD. Dr. Eger has a clinical practice in La Jolla, California. In the fall of 2017 at the age of 90, her memoir “The Choice, Embrace the Possible” was published. In her book, she details how the synergy of working with, and learning from her patient’s perspectives has enriched her life experiences and outlook. Her second book, “The Gift, Twelve Lessons to Save Your Life” was released in September 2020. Both books are being translated into more than thirty languages.
