"We have the symptoms but they may not be ours."

Episode 61:

This week we're straight talking inherited family trauma with award winning author Mark Wolynn. Mark literally wrote the book on generational trauma "It Didn't Start With You" and on this very special episode Mark breaks down the science of how traumatic experiences that happened to our parents and grandparents can be affecting us now! He shares some clinical examples with us, tells us how to identify if we are carrying family trauma and most importantly teaches us how to start to heal if we are. Mark also shares his amazing story of how he was facing blindness until he healed his own trauma.

Peter jumps on for a catch up, Kamron is smiling after getting his first car, with tragic news events we chat about how in Ireland we idealise the dead and how the "the good (front) room" typifies the persona that we all present.
