Today my guest is Johanna Lynn, the founder of The Family Imprint Institute. She’s fascinated by what parents share with their children, the invisible stuff passed along in their very DNA. Johanna says that our earliest experiences, while we don’t consciously remember them, have a profound influence on how we live our lives. She works with what the body remembers and the knowledge that we are more than our own individual experiences.
If you’ve just been working with your client’s present struggles, you are only working with part of the story. The new science of epigenetics and inherited family trauma shows us that often what we struggle most with inside our relationships, health challenges, habitual patterns or our success often lives in our family’s experiences.
The Trauma Therapist Project discusses trauma and PTSD and supports and inspires those interested in helping those who’ve been impacted by trauma. Guests such as Peter Levine, Pat Ogden, Bessel van der Kolk and Bruce Perry have been interviewed.
