This week, McCall begins the process of unboxing the “fractured self”, childhood and intergenerational trauma, and Epigenetics.
The exploration includes three guests: Cherish Asha Bolton (from Episode 8, where she also discussed the psyche, self, and soul) guides us through the “fractured self”; Margot Schrader briefs us on the Internal Family Systems model and intergenerational trauma; and Jessica Ferretti introduces us to somatic healing.
This dialogue challenges listeners to ponder, “What traumas am I carrying that I may not be aware of and how can I start to heal?”
