Developmental trauma occurs when a child’s earliest needs go unmet and they develop unconscious patterns that cause life-long psychological and wellness challenges, as well as interpersonal difficulties.  Fortunately, the field of trauma healing is developing new and effective treatments, some of which include a strong spiritual grounding.  In this class, we will explore a surprising and helpful connection between Shalom Aleichem, the song Jews sing to welcome in the ministering angels to our Shabbat evening meal, and the powerful work of healing developmental trauma.


Rabbi Lisa Goldstein is a teacher, consultant, and certified practitioner of NARM, a modality of healing complex trauma.   She teaches a wide variety of online courses with an emphasis on spiritual wisdom, prayer and meditation, and the teachings of R. Nahman of Breslov.  She also works one-on-one to support people in their journeys of healing and spiritual growth.

Educated at Brown University and Hebrew Union College, Rabbi Goldstein has almost 25 years of executive experience, serving as the director of Hillel of San Diego, and the executive director of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality.  She is a faculty member for Jewish Pedagogies for Well Being at M2, a research program for master educators, and has helped create and implement online learning programs, including self-paced highly produced courses.

She lives in New York City with her husband, Igal Harmelin, and their foster son, Seydou.
