“Your genes are affected by the environment as soon as there is an environment.”
– Gabor Mate (watch the trailer for “In Utero”)

Hi everyone,

What if, in order to understand how our species developed so many troubling issues we see all around us today, we needed to go back to the beginning and understand “...life in the womb and its lasting impact on human development, human behavior, and the state of the world”? And, what if understanding that could put us on a better path for knowing what we need to do differently?

I got really excited when I first saw “In Utero” last fall because to my knowledge it is the first feature length documentary to talk about the cutting edge topic, Epigenetics, how the environment influences our genes. It opens the door to pondering things like trans-generational trauma and dysfunction vs. trans-generational health and healing. Additionally, I really love listening to Gabor Maté and he is in the film. (Does anyone recall an email I sent last October featuring an item he wrote about the Presidential election?)

Tomorrow, March 16, please join us for a screening of “In Utero”. This is the third and final event in A Legacy of Learning: Establishing Equity in the Aftermath of Trauma. The event also features Rebecca Amis, co-founder of MUSE School. I have had the good fortune to visit MUSE three times now and have been amazed each time. Everything at MUSE is based in sustainability. They have the whole package there. The curriculum was created to promote authenticity, empathy and connection, while making living with environmental mindfulness just a natural part of life. Additionally, they are one of the first entirely plant-based schools in the U.S. and grow much of their own food in organic school gardens.

I hope you will join us.
