What we're about

In each of us lives a young, suffering child.
He or she echoes our beliefs about ourselves and the world.
Also, most of the time, they drive our emotions and unconscious behaviour.
At home, at work, at the social gatherings and when we are alone with ourselves.
The inner child concept originates from Jung.
It’s a part of our unconscious that represents the child we once were.
And it has been widely used in psychotherapy as a powerful tool in helping with emotional healing and transformation.
We have all had times of difficulty as children and many of us have experienced trauma.
In order for us to survive in our childhood and to avoid shame, in order for us to belong, get love, connection and everything else we need, we as children hide our traumatic experiences and / or emotions.
To protect and defend ourselves against future suffering, we often try to forget those painful times.
Every time we’re in touch with the experience of suffering, we believe we can’t bear it, and we stuff our feelings and memories deep down in our unconscious mind.
It may be that we haven’t dared to face this child for many decades.
But just because we may have ignored the child doesn’t mean she or he isn’t there.
The wounded child is always there, trying to get our attention.
The child says, “I’m here. I’m here. You can’t avoid me. You can’t run away from me.”
We want to end our suffering by sending the child to a deep place inside, and staying as far away as possible.
But running away doesn’t end our suffering; it only prolongs it.
The wounded child asks for care and love, but we do the opposite.
We run away because we’re afraid of suffering.
The block of pain and sorrow in us feels overwhelming.
Even if we have time, we don’t come home to ourselves.
We try to keep ourselves constantly entertained—watching television or movies, socializing, or using alcohol or drugs—because we don’t want to experience that suffering all over again.
The wounded child is there and we don’t even know she is there.
The wounded child in us really needs us to return.
Instead we turn away.
Healing the inner child is the focus of each group meeting.

Inner Child Workshop: Finding Your Joy Again!

What if you could stop for a moment and see the world as you did when you were a child? A world where you jumped in puddles, ran with open arms in the rain? A world were you stopped everything when you saw a rainbow and just admired its beauty? When each day you lived your dreams and nothing was impossible? Traumatic incidents that occurred in our childhood, stay embedded and suppressed in our subconscious, and surface in our adult life when triggered by the environment. This causes us to repeatedly respond in the same manner with toxic negative emotions, which limit our self-growth. In this two hours workshop we will be focusing on connecting to our inner child through our own inner exploration, pairs and group exercises. What to expect: ~ connection with your inner child ~ spontaneous play and curiosity ~ intuitive insight into your inner world ~ a deeper perspective on areas that need healing ~ tools to support your inner child healing This workshop IS NOT about quick positivity, calm and relaxation. A raw awareness, courage and willingness to face your shadow side, to be vulnerable and open to challenge your current way of thinking and behaving, whilst letting go of coping mechanisms which kept you safe but unhappy and inauthentic in your life, is required. WHAT TO BRING: - a pen and your journal - yoga mat, a cushion, or a blanket to sit on - water / tea / coffee ( if you like / need it ) - snacks ( if you like / need it ) - a pic from your childhood ( it can be downloaded to your phone ) What to wear: comfortable layers of clothes Please remember to RSVP latest 24 hours before the event.

Emotions: Anger

Perth

Anger is actually not an emotion but more of a response. We get angry when we feel threatened or misunderstood. Anger covers our hurt and fear which our states in which we feel powerless. Anger is discouraged socially because of the conflict it creates. Most of us have been raised in environment which sees anger as bad so we often try and avoid or suppress our anger. But our resistance and fear of anger only makes anger persists. In the workshop we will be learning to understand our anger, where it is coming from and what to do with it - how to express it in a healthy way and see it as our friend, not an enemy. This workshop IS about facing your shadow and potentially your light. It is about You, your anger, resistance or struggle to connect with your anger, your boundaries ( or lack of ), Your Truth, your inner child, your ego, your past wounds, shadows, insecurities, suppressed emotions, your open heart and your empathy, your thoughts and feelings, values, beliefs and expectations, your healthy and not so healthy patterns of thinking and behaving. This workshop IS NOT about quick positivity, calm and relaxation. A raw awareness, courage and willingness to face your shadow side, to be vulnerable and open to challenge your current way of thinking and behaving, whilst letting go of coping mechanisms which kept you safe but unhappy and inauthentic in your life, is required.

Weekend Workshop: Conscious Relationships

Relationships are the heart and soul of our expansion. They can be hard and painful AND they make the most important part of our life. They ARE life – we are only ever as happy as our relationships! The place we have learned about relationships and love in our childhood was our family home. If we felt safe, supported and connected with our parents or caretakers, that became our definition of love in our adulthood. If we were abandoned, disconnected, emotionally or physically neglected, isolated or abused, that became our belief about love we operate under. And although consciously we know love should feel good, loving, caring, open, supportive, trusting – subconsciously we believe love is complete opposite of that, which results in attracting partners who represent those subconscious beliefs of ours. In our two days workshop we will be learning and rediscovering that our relationships can improve when: 1. We develop a healthy sense of self 2. We become aware of our subconscious emotional drives and triggers and make necessary changes 3. We can practice a radical honesty with ourselves and our partner 4. We use the pain in our relationship to define our values, goals, needs and desires 5. We clearly communicate to our partner what we need and want 6. We are able to have compassion and empathy for our partner’s pain, and are able to understand what they are feeling, what their wants and needs are, instead of trying to love them from our own separate perspective 7. We create ways to deeply connect and share the gift of vulnerability with our partner, developing awareness of his or hers subconscious emotional drives and triggers 8. We commit to a healthy, mature, conscious, open and authentic communication, practicing uninterrupted active listening with our partner This in depth workshop IS about facing your shadow and potentially your light. It is about You and Your Truth, your inner child, your ego, your past wounds, shadows, insecurities, attachment styles, suppressed emotions, your open heart and your empathy, your challenges within relationships, your thoughts and feelings, values, beliefs and expectations, your healthy and not so healthy patterns of thinking, behaving and communicating to your loved one(s), your listening skills, your love for yourself, your goals, needs and desires within your relationship. This workshop IS NOT about quick positivity, calm and relaxation, and fixing your partner or other family members. A raw awareness, courage and willingness to face your shadow side and to be vulnerable and open to challenge your current way of thinking and behaving, whilst letting go of coping mechanisms which kept you safe but unhappy and inauthentic in your life, is required. Who can benefit from this workshop? Absolutely EVERYONE – couples and singles. You don’t have to be in a relationship to come to the workshop. If you are married or in a relationship, you can but don’t have to bring your partner along.
