How Did We Get Here?
Our Refusal to Know the Truth About Ourselves

Blowing the Whistle on Us –
For the Trauma We’ve Experienced and the Trauma We Create

So many of us ask ourselves in these times, “How did we get here?”

Sadly, when most of us try to respond to this difficult question, our answers barely scratch the surface. Few of us – far too few of us – try to go deep enough to see even the barest roots of why our lives, our countries, and our world are in the condition they’re in.

People have all sorts of explanations for how we got here – nationally and globally.

It’s financial. It’s political. It’s patriarchal. It’s prejudicial. It’s misogynistic. It’s abuse. And more.

Each viewpoint can be discussed and seem to explain the cause from a valid standpoint.

Yet … they are all accounts at or near the surface. No matter how long we have believed the explanations … no matter how deep they appear to go … none of them reaches the roots of the way in which we got here. None of them even alludes to the reality that there are root causes deep beneath each explanation. And none of them even hints at the central reality that underlies all the explanations.

So … how did we get here?

In our adult lives, whether we realize it or not, we re-enact again and again the wounding we experienced as children. These re-enactments affect us, those close to us, our country, and our world.

Imagine if everyone made the commitment to explore and heal those roots in themselves!

Find out more and be part of the healing.

Judith Barr's new book "How Did We Get Here?" Interview on Conscious Talk
Judith Barr talks about her new book "How Did We Get Here?" in an Interview with...



Engaging and heartfelt, How Did We Get Here?, tells the TRUTH of how humanity has created the crisis we are currently experiencing. It is written with love and compassion for what we’ve created up-to-this-point, but also with a very strong sense of urgency for humanity to heal its wounds, if we want to save ourselves and our beautiful planet. Healing, as Judith points out, is the medicine desperately needed for these times. Thanks to Judith for speaking up, standing up, and assisting all of us with her healing energy.


Hosts, Conscious Talk Radio

Judith Barr’s latest book, How Did We Get Here? is simply put, life changing. For those who are seeking insights into how our childhood experiences help define who we are as adults, and for those aware, or unaware, of the role of love vs fear, it is a must-read. Her words illuminate what might be, for many, an entirely new way of thinking and relating to the world, other people and situations. It sheds light on the power of our thoughts in a more remarkable and awe-inspiring way than I have read in many other books. As a fan of self-improvement and spiritual readings, I am grateful for having found “How Did We Get Here?”. After finishing it, I find the words continue to deeply resonate with me and help to guide my thoughts, perspectives and experiences. Allow your life to be changed and your insights this book.

In simple prose, this book [How Did We Get Here?] reveals the profound truth of trauma. If we want to survive as a species, we must stop the emotional and physical abuse of childhood. We must abandon cultural norms based upon deeply flawed philosophical musings about human nature going back thousands of years. We must recognize that we are emotional beings, not rational beings. Only in this way can we stop the cycle of trauma that Judith Barr bears testament to.
