Settling The Past is about Shayna Miller’s struggle to cope with the untimely death of her oldest son, while her marriage and her relationship with her surviving adult children are falling apart. As she engages in therapy with Dr. Brothym, several past lives emerge, each with their own unique sub-story, connecting Shayna to a history extending from ancient times up until World War II. More
How does one react to the news of the death of one’s child? When Shayna Miller was informed of such a passing, her family and friends believed she was coping well enough. Over time, however, her self-deployed emotional safeguards begin to unravel and everything, including her judgment, self-confidence, her marriage and her relationship with her surviving adult children, starts to fall apart. Shayna suspects that the hospital where her son, Jackson, died bears some culpability for the tragic event. Her suspicions become intensified by the hospital’s unwillingness to communicate openly about this matter with her and Shayna’s husband Phil. At Phil’s urging to seek medical treatment, Shayna consults with Dr. Brothym, who introduces her to past-life regression therapy. Her subsequent transcendental visits bring Shayna to ancient Egypt, the Industrial Revolution in Europe, Australia, and to the death camps of World War II. The notion of justice is a theme that keeps repeating throughout these sessions. Gradually, but not without additional exacerbating incidents, Shayna learns how to release the monumental pain she has suppressed.
