Embrace the child within
How often we think life should be different from what it is. How often we experience unexplained anxiety and depression. How often we think we need fixing and not worthy of love, not realising this is a subtle form of self-judgement. Hidden within these interplays are the cries found deep in us, the unspoken voice of our child within.
We all have experienced some form of trauma, trial and turbulence. Some may come from prenatal and perinatal period, or even from the time of our inception. These traumas can influence us epigenetically and experientially, and in turn affect our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
Our child within needs to be held and heard. By embracing our own inner child we embrace the wounded children of our ancestors. The cycles of transgenerational and intergenerational traumas can be healed with compassion and understanding.
Wisdom of the Heart
Through the practice of self-awareness, we gain clarity in the playground of our feelings and thoughts. Drawing from an expanded heart perception, we are able to let go and surrender to the innate intelligence within. This leads us into a deeper self-acceptance, exposing the underlying fears trapped in our child within.
Our heart brings us into a discovery process lifting the veils of misidentification and misconception which have been caging our child within. Our heart becomes the Mother, embracing the inner child, guiding us into self-healing to live our full potential.
Retreat into our heart
I learned that healing the child within need not be cathartic which itself can be re-traumatising. There are subtle approaches to promote deep healing by recognising the states of our nervous systems.
In this retreat, we will explore embodied touch and movement, infused with the power of yogic practice of hand mudras and ancient knowledge of inner alchemy. Together with somatic meditation, we hope to calm the waves of thought to reach the pivotal point of stillness in our heart.
In the space of compassion and understanding, we will learn to pierce beyond the intricacies of psyche and pain, to reach the indwelling harmony and lucidity of health within us. With grace, we can expand our heart perception to deepen our connection with unconditional love.
