What’s it all about?

Adventure on an amazing journey inside the weird world of Epigenetics! Be amazed (and quite possibly shocked) at how the environment, the experiences and lifestyle choices made by not only you but also your parents, your grandparents (and even your great grandparents) have shaped your genetic make-up and continue to do so every day.

What will we cover?

In this interactive workshop, you will learn:

  • Basic principles of Epigenetic inheritance
  • Latest scientific evidence in the field of Epigenetics
  • How you might inherit experiences of your ancestors.
  • How to harness the potential of Epigenetic mechanisms to improve your health and well being.

You will receive a list of resources to take continue your learning as well as a booklet of selected Epigenetic scientific studies.
