Trauma, Nature, & The Body. Leslie Korn
Dr. Leslie Korn is a Harvard Medical School-trained traumatologist specializing in mental health nutrition and integrative approaches to treating the mind and body.
Leslie began her clinical work as a bodyworker, yoga teacher and student of indigenous healing traditions in 1973. She lived in the jungle of Mexico for over 25 years where she founded and directed a public health natural medicine center, The Center for Traditional Medicine.
