Family relationships aren’t usually simple or straight forward.
This is a matter of design, because our karmic blueprint brings us into family situations where we can play out the dramas necessary for our evolution.
In this episode, Thom answers questions from listeners about the dynamics of family relationships during times of difficulty.
He discusses how to cope with family relationships that have broken down, and how to show adult children how they can make the most of their world, even when outer circumstances appear tough.
