Scrapbook of Dr. Marcy Event Highlights


BirthkeeperSummitI’m excited to join a roster of amazing folks at this epic gathering. I’m making very few personal appearances these days (by homebody choice), so this is a rare chance for you and me to be together face-to-face!  My sessions:
Childbirth & The Future of Homo Sapiens (I’ll be on this panel led by Michel Odent) | Friday, May 1 | 7:45 pmParenting for Peace: Birthing the Next Generation of Peacemakers — Pregnancy, birth &  postpartum are “Nature’s Head Start Program”: environmental cues from Mom’s physical, mental and emotional life tell baby what kind of world to prepare for, and development unfolds accordingly — to express optimal growth in a loving world, or to prepare to defend in a hostile world. From the 7-step / 7-principle Parenting for Peace model, I will spotlight practical ways we can harmonize with Nature’s plan at these three critical stages for hardwiring our children with the brain circuitry for such essential peacemaker capacities as self-regulation, self-reflection, imagination, trust and empathy.  | Saturday, May 2 | 10:30am

Poster session: Parenting for Peace 

**** Conference Flash **** 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 to future generations through changes in DNA expression — is, “That function is no longer needed.” Read more on this…

Plenary session: The Conscious Conception &                                   Birth of New Science MpresentingICPA1

Marcy Axness, Ph.D., explored the provocative, vitalism-friendly ideas of “thought as an organizing principle” on the tiny biological system of the fertilized ovum; of conception as the vitalistic “big bang” that echoes lifelong; and the opportunity we have as members of the human family to participate in our own “spontaneous evolution” through offering the incoming physical being thoughts and intention—such as gratitude, wonder and presence—that may invite more coherent, harmonized organization and growth.
