Roots Matter, LLC is passionate about Healing History, Honoring Heritage and Renewing Hope.

#

Why Roots Matter

Have you ever noticed patterns of behavior, relationships or attributes in your family that seem to repeat themselves? Do athletes, entrepreneurs, teachers, artists, musicians, mathematicians or scientists “run” in your family? What about depression, violence, and substance abuse? We inherit both healthy and unhealthy habits from our ancestors whether we are aware of them or not.

#

What We Do

We learn about our family and cultural history in order to recognize the sources of strength and suffering. Understanding the connection to our lives can inform the decisions we make.

#

How

Using the genogram , we record what we know of our family story. We learn about the historical events that shaped our ancestors’ lives and subsequently our lives.

„My ’aha’ moment was realizing that I am part of a tapestry of talents, personality, determination and spirit that have been passed down to me through the generations. I am part of them as they are a part of me and I am greater than the sum of my parts. “

Participant, David Foster
