SHOW DESCRIPTION: In this podcast I talk to mindful licensed marriage and family therapist Vienna Pharaon about trauma and family relationships, facing our origin wounds, how to unshackle ourselves from the past to find peace in the present, and so much more! In Vienna’s incredible new book, The Origins of You: How Breaking Family Patterns Can Liberate The Way We Live And Love, she talks about how, “armed with the knowledge about our past, we can actually rewire our programming to meaningfully improve our relationships and our lives, right now and in the future”. As Vienna points out, “it doesn’t matter whether you’ve been in therapy for decades, or whether therapy isn’t for you. It doesn’t matter if you have loads of memories from childhood, or struggle to remember anything at all. What matters is your willingness to look inside yourself, and your determination to find a new way forward”.
