IT DIDN’T START WITH YOU ~Break the Cycle of Inherited Trauma

08-02-17  IT DIDN’T START WITH YOU ~Break the Cycle of Inherited Trauma Through Family Constellations with Mark Wolynn at Omega Institute August 18, 2017 – August 20, 2017

The latest research in epigenetics tells us we can inherit the biological residues from traumatic events in our family history. Unexplained depression, anxiety, illness, unhappy relationships, and financial challenges can all be forms of this unconscious inheritance. Unresolved trauma and suffering can affect our family for generations, forging a blueprint for our life, which we pass on to our children. But it doesn’t have to continue. Mark Wolynn, one of North America’s foremost Family Constellations facilitators, teaches that, although these patterns may not have started with you, they can end with you.

In this workshop you learn an effective way to break the destructive patterns of inherited family trauma. Through lectures, discussions, and interactive group work, you get to the core of personal and relationship issues, and begin resolving problems that had seemed insurmountable.

This workshop is suitable for mental health professionals and anyone interested in personal healing.

Mark Wolynn, author of It Didn’t Start With You, is a leading expert on inherited family trauma. As director of the Family Constellation Institute in San Francisco, he has trained thousands of clinicians and treated thousands more patients struggling with depression, anxiety, panic disorder, obsessive thoughts, self-injury, chronic pain, and illness. markwolynn.com
