“Healing History 2014 in Bonn was an incredibly deep experience for me. Gary supported me in working with my trans-generational and collective trauma related to the Holocaust experiences of my Jewish ancestors. I felt witnessed and held. Clean and clear, trusting each other, without shame. We moved to that space “beyond the stories” where new possibilities can emerge and manifest.” (Shared by a participant of Healing History 2014)

Growing up in Poland in communist times and being involved in political changes which seemed unthinkable before, I know how much our inner world is shaped by history. But I have also experienced that a historical situation as well as our perception and feelings around it may change: transforming consciousness really makes a difference.
