Throughout his 20 years of research and work in the field he is continually taking great strides to help people realize that according to the newest scientific research, the effects of trauma can pass from one generation to the next. His book is a culmination of 'empirical observations, groundbreaking neuroscience, epigenetic, and the science of language.' He helps the reader to identify inherited family patterns that we unconsciously adopt from generation to generation. He also outlines specific activities that one can engage in to further investigate the impacts of generational trauma.
His work truly is mesmerizing and life changing. He is a beautiful story teller and shares his own personal account of generational trauma. "In many ways, healing from trauma is akin to creating a poem. Both require the right timing, the right words, and the right image. When these elements align, something meaningful is set into motion that can be felt in the bod. To heal, our pacing must be in tune. If we arrive too quickly at an image, it might not take root. If the words that comfort us arrive too early, we might not be ready to take them in. If the words aren't precise, we might not hear them or resonate with them at all."
May we all feel supported as we do our necessary work and blaze a fresh trail for those who have gone before us and those who have yet to come. One of my beautiful teachers shared that when we engage in our own healing work, we heal seven generations forward and seven generations back. That my friends is life changing:).
