So let me share some of my favorite lines from this interview:

“Our childhood and our conditioning has everything to do with how we feel and how we behave and what we believe and and our fulfillment or lack of thereof in adulthood..” 

– Phyllis Leavitt

“The more trauma is in their childhood, the more deficits in love and belonging or safety that people have experienced when they find a safe place where they can really explore what happened to them and the impact on them, they’re able to make better choices.”
– Phyllis Leavitt

“People who are really loved, who are taken care of, who feel that they’re valued, who feel that they have a place and they belong and they’re wanted, who are provided for, do not want to murder other people. They do not want to hate other people. They do not want to rape or exploit or in any other way harm other human beings.”

-Phyllis Leavitt
