The Talk

Mark Wolynn is one of the world’s leading experts on inherited family trauma and its impact on our physical and emotional wellbeing.

After spontaneously losing nearly all his eyesight as a young man he made a miraculous recovery simply through uncovering and healing family trauma hidden in his subconscious. His recovery sparked a 20 year career into how unprocessed trauma in our lineage impacts of physical and emotional lives in the most profound of ways.

His book IT DIDN’T START WITH YOU: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle is one of the most authoritative reads in the field of how our DNA is coded from birth by the traumas and past experiences of our parents, grandparents, great grandparents and so on through our genetic lineage.

In this conversation we talk about how science is essentially now proving karma through epigenetics, how your life is hugely codified by your genes and family trauma, and how to spot and heal those effects.
