Deborah Bowman

Deborah Bowman is passionate about helping others learn from loss and sharing how we can change overwhelming life challenges into joy. In this moving TED talk Deborah details electrifying moments of falling on an ice wall and years of recovery to build a life of emotional and spiritual discovery. As a psychologist Deborah continues to share personal insight from her codependent and near fatal decision to climb unroped at the request of another. Working today as a Dean at Naropa University and as a professor of mindfulness-based counseling she helps countless others to heal from devastating patterns and recover their potential.
