I’m delighted to have Marcy Axness as one of my guest speakers for the Matrix Birth Reimprinting Online Practitioner Training
Marcy Axness, PhD, was an Emmy-nominated, multiple award-winning documentary writer/producer in her “pre-motherhood” life. But becoming a mother rocked her well-ordered world and called her toward personal as well as intellectual growth. Once her son and daughter were in school, she turned her penetrating eye and inquiring mind to early human development. Her research question never wavers: How do our conventional parenting and childcare practices affect our children’s healthy development and potential—and how can we give them a better beginning? Her teachings are imbued with a relevance and compassion borne of her willingness to share her own parenting struggles, joys and discoveries.

A member of Mothering magazine’s online expert panel, Dr. Axness is a gifted writer and dynamic educator, and has delivered keynote presentations to audiences across the U.S., in New Zealand, Canada and Brazil, and has appeared in countless publications, both popular and scholarly, including as a regular columnist in Los Angeles’ longest-running parenting publication. Her favorite audience are young people who light up at Marcy’s empowering Parenting for Peace message: You can change the world, beginning long before you have children… beginning today!
Dr. Axness has a private consulting/counseling practice specializing in mind-body fertility, pregnancy psychology, adoption, and early parenting. Weaving together scientific and spiritual principles into her Quantum Parenting map, she guides parents (and pre-parents) in fostering their children’s optimal development, while helping them discover more fulfillment as parents. She also provides training for adoption, education, and mental health professionals about the latest findings in the science of human thriving.
Parenting for Peace: Raising the Next Generation of Peacemakers by Marcy Axness
If we really want to change the world, let’s raise a generation “built forpeace”… from the very beginning. Parenting for Peace is a user-friendly scientific roadmap for how to do exactly that… while bringing more joy into family life!
Parenting for Peace details a unique seven-step, seven-principle matrix for hardwiring our babies and children with the brain circuitry for such essential peacemaker capacities as self-regulation, empathy, intelligence, trust and imagination. The win-win is that a child wired in this vibrantly healthy way is a joy to parent, and as an adult has the heart to embrace and exemplify peace, the mind to innovate solutions to social and ecological challenges, and the will to enact them. To be successful in a changing world.
