“A fundamental goal of human development is the emergence of a self-sustaining, self-regulated human being who can live in concert with fellow human beings in a social context. Vital for this healthy development is a relationship with a parent who sees and understands the child’s feelings and can respond with attuned empathy to the child’s emotional cues.”
Dr Gabor Mate, When The Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress
Our learning and exploration includes:
- Intergenerational and historical trauma – seeing our personal lives in a larger family and societal context
- Mapping our family two generations back and forward
- Nurturing emotional interactions with parents are an indispensable requirement of human brain development

- In addition to feeling loved, we need to experience ourselves as appreciated for who we really are
- Being present with energy, feelings and sensations in our body
- Releasing core deficiency beliefs
- Looking through a trauma lens and cultivating compassion for ourselves and others in our family
- Widening our window of tolerance as we heal
- Allowing everyone to be as they are, even when it is not what we need
- Releasing resentments, regret and finding peace
