How the Pain-Body Affects Children

Aired on 04/27/2014 | CC tv-14
According to spiritual author Eckhart Tolle, the "pain-body" is defined as the accumulation of old emotional pain a person carries throughout his or her life. When parents argue, it can spur the growth of the pain-body early on in children. On the other hand, repressing those negative emotions and creating a tense home environment can have the same effect. Watch as Oprah and Eckhart outline how the pain-body can be passed down through generations.
