This is a wonderfully power-full invitation to tap our individual and collective courage and determination to upgrade healing for us all. My experience too indicates that the consequences of ACEs is beatable and treatable to some degree at any age.

The video is very user-friendly and can be easily used with colleagues, clients, administrators, policy makers, friends, family, social media, .... Imagine the conversations and then share what comes after someone says , "I wonder if we could ....." and someone else says, "Yes, we can."We have what it takes all-ready. Have you considered that the missing link may really be our own pain related to broken neural connections from our own ACEs and toxic stress? Are we daring enough to nurture ourselves and each other to bloom into compassionate action at some level wherever we are.

Thank you Jane and Nadine!
