Oct. 27/28 Mid-Pacific Conference on Birth & Primal Health Research (Honolulu, HI):
Info | **** Breaking news from Michel Odent’s conference on Birth & Primal Health Research: the data is clear that we humans are losing the capacity to give birth! How can that be? It is pure evolution in action: when we do not use certain functions of our physiology, the “message” to our always-changing bodymind system — a message that becomes passed down to future generations through changes in DNA expression — is, “That function is no longer needed.” **** Read more on this…

As a conference planner, I want to stay away from the trite or bland. I count on Marcy Axness to be neither. She brings currency and depth to her presentations. Best of all, she is an unabashed voice for children.

Always so provocative and informative, your talks seem to tie up the loose ends of science, spirituality, and psychology for me in a way that affirms my sense of the miraculous connectedness of all things. You’re wonderful to listen to – always a total turn-on.
~ Lynn Comley, parent
Dr. Axness is passionate about all facets of child development, adoption, parenting, and the complex cultural influences on how we become who we become–as children, as parents, as people. She is a dynamic and popular speaker, probably because she just loves learning and sharing about these topics on human development!
Marcy Axness is a superb presenter. She has the rare gift of distilling the latest research and the most sweeping of truths into concise vignettes and memorable stories that go straight to the heart of the matter and the heart of the listener. And always with the lightest of touches, the latest in PowerPoint and the most accessible of styles. For every parent and every parent-to-be, Dr. Axness’ work is a must see, hear and read.
