When we grow up walking on eggshells, living with codependent, perfectionist and people-pleasing habits, our sense of self can get so Other-People-Focused that we lose touch with ourselves on every level.
And as actual-children we learn that it's smarter, safer, better, wiser to Not be our authentic selves...
And so we act out the roles that we believed would keep us safe at home and in the world:
- The Good Girl
- The A+ Girl
- The Gold Star Girl
- The Thin Girl
- The Quiet Nerdy Girl
- The Joker or the Clown
- The Rebel
- The Giver, The Helper, The Saint...
And that little-you version of you lives on within you as your inner child, impacting your sense of self, your relationships, your career choices, your reactions to life...
UNTIL YOU LEARN TO SHOW UP FOR YOUR INNER CHILD AS YOUR OWN MOST LOVING ADULT, your inner child will rule your adult life.
Here's the most important thing I've learned over my decades of experience practicing many different healing modalities:
Our inner children hold the key to unlocking the joy, success, contentment, and happiness that we're always seeking.
Until you heal and rebuild your relationship with your inner child, you will continue to struggle with confidence, peace, success, fulfillment, your partner, your parents, and judgement of the self and others.
Until you work with your inner child to feel safe, you will struggle with trust and feeling at peace in your life, regardless of how stable it may be.
Until you work with your inner child to feel unconditionally loved, you will struggle with jealousy, intimacy, vulnerability, connection, and communication.
Until you work with your inner child to feel heard and seen, you will struggle with resentment of others, people-pleasing behaviors sticking around even after years of therapy, and listening without defensiveness in conversations or conflicts.
connect to your inner children & give them the love they need
When you are present with your inner children, you are able to ground yourself in new ways, to stay conscious, intentional, connected to your intuition, and you are able to pause to intervene and to advocate for yourself in real-time to help you:
Identify the places where you can strengthen your relationship with your inner child
Get clear about a plan for healing your relationship with your inner child
Achieve proficiency in listening to & speaking with your inner children
Know the ins & outs--the HOW--of working with your nervous system and your body to create the safest & healthiest environment possible where your inner child can thrive
Know how to work with your inner child when you feel triggered, threatened, or lost
Walk away as a more confident, joyous, wise, peaceful, & abundant adult human

A hands-on, somatics and thought-work workshop to cultivate a loving relationship yourself

You will get

You will come out of this weekend with deepened self love and self knowledge because you will be held to a higher level of engagement by the group.

This is a 2 day deep dive of minute-by-minute guidance through a healing experience with you and your inner children.
