The research conducted by prenatal psychology into psychological and emotional experiences before and during birth has led to the discovery and recognition that human cultural artefacts and activities have to some extent always expressed prenatal and perinatal feelings.
This is illustrated in examples, such as the mythical ideas about kings (prenatal feeling of power), the holy trees (placenta) and the holy chambers (uterine space), among others. Thus the fetal emotions are mirrored in the magic, mythical and religious experience and in the philosophy of life of a given time allow us to “ rediscover” the microcosm of our prenatal life in the macrocosm of the world.
Dr. Ludwig Janus will present at the Human Baby, Human Being conference in Bristol 2019 on the impact of prenatal and perinatal psychology on society and culture. In this webinar, Dr. Janus gives us an overview of his workshop in Bristol and answers questions from the audience.
