The Magical Child ~ Our Essence
The Inner Child is a powerful presence. It dwells at the core of our being. Imagine a healthy, happy young child with great enthusiasm for live, constantly exploring tsp environment. It expresses its feelings openly, when it is angry it screams, when it is happy it smiles and laughs from deep down inside. This child is highly sensitive and instinctual, it knows who to trust and who not to trust. This child loves to play and discover. From this playfulness comes in inexhaustible well of creativity and aliveness. Do you recognize yourself in this child ?

With growing older, those very qualities that gave our inner child its aliveness - curiosity, spontaneity, ability to feel - are forced into hiding for various reasons. If one or more of the above sentences resonate with you, you know for a fact that your inner child is in need of healing.
The 3 day workshop that we are offering is carefully designed to reconnect with your innate aliveness which can be hidden beneath childhood traumas, cultural convictions, education and the limiting beliefs of your parents.
By experiencing the wounded and contracted parts in you and through reconnecting to your unmet childhood needs for love, safety, trust, respect and guidance you will unleash your aliveness along with it.
Through drawing, writing, creative play, self inquiries and bodywork we will find the voice of the child who lives in you and that is your essence. You will discover its needs and wishes. You will learn how to be a loving parent for your inner child.
