Castlegar Library Author Talk

October 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-7

Sarah Salter Kelly shares her experience of her mothers homicide as a template to support others in moving into the underworld territory of trauma. Through her inspirational story she offers foundational teachings to guide you in trusting that not only have you had the right life experiences, you have the resources within yourself to address them and transform them. She offers simple, practical, and powerful insights for the metabolization of trauma in day to day life. 

Her book, Trauma as Medicine,  is based on two primary philosophies: First, we have come to this planet to learn lessons and everything we need to grow is found in the heart of our experiences. Second, the world around us is made of an intelligent matrix of consciousness – life force – that we are in fact a part of, and we may cultivate our relationship with this life force to generate healing. 

Bio- Years of  training in spiritual healing and personal growth, as well as a focus on earth based traditions – particularly shamanism – enable Sarah to present a guide to freedom, compassion and authentic forgiveness. She provides a path in the very life lessons which lie before us: those found at the heart of our trauma.

Sarah provides many pertinent reflections on our collective relationship to the First peoples of this land and the role required of each of us.”  Teresa Callihoo, MBA, Wetaskiwin AB

“Sarah’s talk was informative, inspirational, and approachable.  She shares her story very clearly and with a sense of humour that makes participants feel welcome and awed.  I highly recommend reading her book and attending her talks.  We would love to have her back.” Channing Stenhouse, Director Peace River Public Library

“A riveting read. Sarah really grips your attention every step of the way with her personal stories. Her approach is very relatable and easy to understand. A great book for those who are dipping their toes in their own healing, as Sarah creates a clear and easy format to understand tools of healing, stages of healing and how to work with them. Also a great read for any veterans on the healing path, as everyone can use a reminder or a different perspective in our continuous healing and growth. This book is for everyone.”  Dannika,Gaia Rising Nelson BC

“By mindfully melding the personal and the professional of what shared-humanity can mean when tragedy befalls us, Sarah Salter-Kelly offers hope, healing, and powerful medicine in this rich and thoughtful book.”  Margot Van Sluytman, Poet & Award Winning Restorative Justice Researcher
