Inherited Trauma: E-Class with Mark Wolynn
Sunday March 26th, 2017
An interactive E-Class online with Mark Wolynn
A unique opportunity to learn more about inherited family trauma with Mark Wolynn, author of: It Didn’t Start With You: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who You Are and How to End the Cycle.
A presentation from Mark will be followed by questions, answers, sharing and some exercises.
It Didn’t Start With You shows how the traumas of our parents, grandparents, and even great grandparents can live in our unexplained depression, anxiety, fears, phobias, obsessive thoughts and physical symptoms—what scientists are now calling “secondary PTSD.”
Documenting the latest epigenetic research—how traumatic memories are transmitted through chemical changes in DNA expression — and the latest advances in neuroscience and the science of language, It Didn’t Start With You is an accessible and pragmatic guide to breaking inherited family patterns.
Event lasts: 2 hours

WHAT IS INHERITED FAMILY TRAUMA?
Many of us relive the tragedies from previous generations and rarely make the link. Examples from the book include:
- A man in jail for a crime he didn’t commit discovered he was paying the price for a murder his father had been acquitted for a generation earlier.
- A woman who couldn’t understand her sudden indifference toward her husband was entangled with her grandmother who lost her husband tragically at the same age.
- A young, Cambodian boy whose self-destructive behavior was linked to the murder of his grandfather by the Khmer Rouge.
- A woman with claustrophobia—unable to ride in a plane or elevator—made the connection to her father’s parents who perished in a gas chamber.
- A woman with a paralyzing fear that her child would die discovered that her grandparents lost two children before they immigrated to the United States.
A PRACTICAL GUIDE
The E-Class will open a process of self-discovery and healing through the epigenetic and psychological legacy of the ancestors, offering tools to identify the emotionally-charged language of fear that can link to unresolved trauma. This interactive E-Class, live with Mark Wolynn, offers mentorship and an introduction into to the integration of new trauma techniques into the practise of healing.
You will learn:
- How to identify inherited family trauma that lives in your anxious words, fears, behaviors and unexplained physical symptoms.
- How to map out the traumatic events in your family history that keep the cycle of suffering alive from generation to generation.
- Practices, visualizations, healing sentences and other tools that can help you disentangle from an emotional legacy you’ve inherited.
- How to create new neural pathways in your brain, new experiences in your body, and new vitality in your relationship with yourself and others.
The event is hosted by the I AM HERE community and is sponsored by the International School of Spiritual Psychology (ISSP).
Mark Wolynn does a masterful job of illuminating the ways in which often unknown to us, our ancestors’ unresolved suffering disables us and binds us painfully to them. He gives us the tools and skills — an approach that combines understanding, imaginative dialogues, and compassionate reconnection—to free and heal ourselves.
