PUJA LEPP & ADAM RICE
During early childhood, we form patterns and conditioning through the influence of our parents, our teachers, even our priests, that can have a powerful effect on our entire trajectory in life – including how we make a living, whom we choose as partners, how we behave relationally and sexually and how we cope with challenges that we face every day. Our inner child has stored those memories, the positive and negative ones and their impact upon us internally within our psyche, which can hold us back in later life. In order to reach our full potential as adults, we need to explore both our unmet needs and suppressed childhood emotions (unworthiness, fear, shame, hurt and trauma) as well as our childlike innocence, creativity, and joy, which are still waiting within of us to be felt.
This introductory workshop to inner child work will begin to explain the incredibly powerful impact that childhood conditioning has on us, and how this work forms the foundation of all other healing modalities you may undertake in the future, creating a road map for healing to free up our wise adult self, the part of us that knows what to do, that leads us to make healthier choices and allows us to live our true potential.
It is this part of us, that guides us home…
