On Getting a PhD, I talked about the backstory here as an example of how ancestral trauma can influence life and perhaps conflict with our own karma and dharma.
The seminary moved the graduation date up so I could do a project for them. However, as events unfolded, it became apparent that hadn’t been necessary. It seems the ancestors wanted to manage this on a different timetable.
Some of you asked to see photos. As has been very common this year, the graduation was virtual.
