The Mother’s Imprint

AND NOW, LOVE is the story of 97-year-old Dr. Bernard W. Bail, a highly decorated Jewish World War II hero who was shot down over Nazi Germany.

Imprisoned in a German hospital, he began a clandestine affair with his nurse, Irmgard, who introduced him to a spiritual love unlike any he had experienced, which became the guiding light for his life and career.

Determined to understand why this pure love is so often unattainable, he became a doctor and psychoanalyst who revolutionized the psychoanalytic process with a new theory called “the mother’s imprint,” an idea that strikes at the root of all mental illness. Bail posits that we all live impressed by this imprint, the unresolved negative feelings a mother has about herself that are unconsciously passed down in utero from generation to generation. This imprint is the result of centuries of female oppression and abuse that cuts us off from pure love and knowing our true potential. Website

In His Own Words
Dr. Bail Discusses His Discovery

Bernard W. Bail, M.D., a psychoanalyst with over fifty years of clinical experience, speaks about how he came to understand the workings of the human mind through the analysis of his patient’s dreams. He explains his Theory of Imprinting, which traces our emotional underpinnings back to fetal life, as well as his resultant call for a shift in psychoanalytic theory from a masculine to a feminine paradigm.
