Date & Time
10:00 am - 5:30 pm
It didn’t start with you, but it can end with you. Unconsciously, we relive our mother’s anxiety. We repeat our father’s disappointments. We replicate the failed relationships of our parents and grandparents. Just as we inherit our eye color and blood type, we also inherit the residue from traumatic events that have taken place in our family. Illness, depression, anxiety, unhappy relationships, and financial challenges can all be forms of this unconscious inheritance.
In this workshop, Mark Wolynn, author of It Didn’t Start With You: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle, will draw from the practice of Family Constellation to offer effective ways to break our inherited patterns so we can live healthier, happier, more fulfilled lives.
Through the interactive group work of Family Constellations, you will learn how to:
- Become a detective of your family history, uncovering the traumatic events that can affect health, success, vitality, and relationships
- Interpret the clues in your words, feelings, symptoms, and behaviors that link to unresolved traumas
- Use dialogue, imagery, ritual, healing sentences, and other tools based on neuroscience that are designed to break the cycle
Note: This workshop is suitable for mental health professionals, anyone interested in personal healing, and those who long to work through deeply rooted family issues.
