Do you know that you are not to blame for your triggers and harmful reactions? Mark Wolynn, author of It Didn’t Start With You, explains how traumas and harmful patterns pass on from one generation to the next. We also talk about the power of mindfulness and other modalities to help us heal these hurts for good.


  1. By rejecting our parents, we share or repeat their life patterns.
  2. Trauma stays within families' genetic code, changing the way genes express.
  3. To transform trauma, we must practice the feelings & sensations of positive experiences.

Mark Wolynn is Director of the Family Constellation Institute in San Francisco and the author of It Didn't Start With You: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle (Viking/Penguin), winner of the 2016 Nautilus Book Award in psychology.
