‘Healing The Past; Healing The Future: Intergenerational Trauma & Personal Responsibility’

“We are not born into this world as a fresh slate into a new life. We are born into a psychological and emotional reality forged long before birth, gestation, and even conception. We are born the vertex of both our mother’s and our father’s lineage. We carry forth into our lives the legacy of our family, and like it or not, we are responsible for that.”

  1. Hi James

    Heard a podcast of your talk through our friend and fellow conference host, Julian Palmer. Would love to hear from you as we’re planning a conference called Conscious Sexuality in South Africa next year.

    Looking forward
