Dr Gabor Maté – Live on Stage in London

At the Barbican

Drawing on cutting-edge science and real-life stories, renowned physician Dr Gabor Maté returns to How To Academy to share his compassionate and humane approach to wellbeing.

‘Gabor Maté’s connections – between the intensely personal and the global, the spiritual and the medical, the psychological and the political – are bold, wise and deeply moral. He is a healer to be cherished’ – Naomi Klein

A revered expert in the psychology of addiction, a prize-winning author and the pioneer of an innovative understanding of human development that employs the lenses of science and compassion, Dr Gabor Maté is a singular figure in contemporary medicine.

Renowned for his insights into the connections between mind and body, self and society, Dr Maté avoids glib self-help remedies, instead promoting self-understanding as the foundation of wellbeing and the first key to healing.

Returning to How To Academy to explore the major insights of his life and career, from the role of trauma and emotional loss in the formation of addiction to the myth of ‘normal’ and the connection between personal suffering and the pressures of modern-day living, this live event will change how you see yourself, others and the world.

We may not be responsible for the way that the world creates our mind, but we can learn to take responsibility for the mind with which we create our world.  – Gabor Maté

Praise for the work of Dr Gabor Maté:

‘Gabor and Daniel Maté have delivered a book in which readers can seek refuge and solace during moments of profound personal and social crisis … an essential compass during disorienting times.’ Esther Perel

‘Gabor Maté takes us on an epic journey of discovery about how our emotional well-being, and our social connectivity (in short: how we live), is intimately intertwined with health, disease and addictions … This riveting and beautifully written tale has profound implications for all of our lives, including the practice of medicine and mental health’ ― Bessel van der Kolk
