Around the Table: Escaping the Cycle of Insanity

As a little girl in the early sixties, Diana sat at the kitchen table managing the consequences of spilling her milk. At the age of five, she already sensed the agony of intimidation radiating from the patriarchal figure hanging on the crucifix above the door. She believed her father and Jesus were one and the same and began counting the peas and carrots on her plate to cope with her developed emotional trauma.


Through her quest to discover her worthiness and survive her teenage years, Diana’s coping mechanisms amplified as she struggled to define love through acceptance within inherited patterning of matriarchal control.  


Her path through adulthood took many u-turns as this courageous woman chose to defy dysfunctional codependency to find genuine connection while co-existing with those she loved.


This fifty-five-year account shares the duality of heart-wrenching and heart-warming memories within a daughter’s battle between the perception of what is right and what is wrong while painstakingly escaping the cycle of living on what she believed was the brink of insanity.

Around the Table: Escaping the Cycle of Insanity 

Reading “Around the Table” opened my eyes to the hierarchy of parental control and the unique perception and interpretation of each child’s experience and how this shapes their beliefs into adulthood. A greater understanding of families and generational trauma and control that often changes within the place you land within your family dynamic often determines the degree of dysfunction...

Creative Healing Through Transformation:

Conversations with my Soul

I have known Diana Reyers for over a decade and have always thought of her as a courageous, vulnerable, inspiring leader. And now I know more of the backstory of how she became the remarkable woman that she is. Hers is an exquisitely heartbreaking, brave, enlightening exploration of her roots, the origins of her inner critic, her familial behaviour patterning and the courageous self-reflection and personal growth to become the authentic woman she is today.

I saw parts of myself in her story, and I imagine you will too.

A spellbinding read and an inspiration for your own personal

self-discovery and journey of growth.
