Inner Child Workshop

Our deepest needs are human needs; love, warmth, acceptance, support. “The spontaneous movement in all of us is toward connection, health and aliveness. No matter how withdrawn and isolated we have become, or how serious the trauma we have experienced, on the deepest level, just as a plant spontaneously moves toward sunlight, there is in each of us an impulse toward connection and healing.”

Inner Child journey work made simple.

If our emotional and psychological needs were not adequately met in childhood, they continue to exist today in their original state. In order to cope and “get on with life,” we all have automatic survival mechanisms we rely on to protect and shield us.

This often means the wounded child parts have to go into hiding. Some parts get pushed very far away out of consciousness, especially if there wasn’t anyone there to offer comfort or support. Inner Child work is about reclamation, a process of reconnecting and integrating those “lost parts” over time, it doesn’t happen all at once. Keeping the focus on staying present “in the here and now” is important to prevent feeling overwhelmed and getting lost in the past.

Where ever you find yourself in life now is the perfect place to begin. Inner Child work is about the willingness to take responsibility (my ability to respond) because when I resist what is, “I suffer.” What ever happened in the past can’t be changed but I can “step into the picture now” and create a different response to what has happened. Sometimes people worry if they can’t remember their childhood experience. All you need is to have a sense of the “child” not remembering is a way of coping and is quite common.
In getting to know yourself, you will discover you have a whole inner world to relate to, versus the thinking that everything of value is outside of yourself, out of reach, somewhere else. All the love we will ever need is to be found “within.” Through fostering a secure inner attachment we start to belong to ourselves.  Inner Child work becomes truly transformative when all the pain and suffering we carry within us potentially becomes empathy for ourselves and for others.
Participation is always by choice, saying No is as valid as saying Yes. While I have a responsibility to keep things on track as facilitator we all co-create what happens over the two days. Each person brings their own unique experience and wisdom and we learn from each other.
Conversations include: Guidance on how to connect with child parts of the self, experiential exploration of boundaries, the inner critic, shame, the purpose of dissociation, resources, compassion, reflections, meditations, creativity and self care. We can use the outdoors to do some earth rituals, weather permitting.
The Child is not something we outgrow. It is a life long channel for our Spirit. –Jon Eisman.
