Meeting and Nurturing your Inner Child Friday Aug 12th 7:30 PM with Rev. Ellen Rochedieu
There is a part of our mind that retains the sense of curiosity, awe, and innocence we had as children. It keeps us asking questions about new things, playing and seeking joy, and inspires wonder at the world around us. Our inner-child, as it’s referred to in psychology, can also hold onto the harm caused by feeling unsafe in our youth. This part of our psyche might hold onto feelings of fear, anxiety, loneliness, or insecurity we might have experienced as children, feelings that then make their way out into our thoughts, behaviors, and choices as adults. The influence of our inner child can create havoc in our lives as it takes hold in uncomfortable situations and steers our direction based on those feelings. In this class we take the first steps in learning to take over the role of caring for our inner child’s needs in order to heal and avoid letting pain from our past define our present and future.
Please bring a pen, notebook and an object or picture that would remind you of your self as a child. Also, as we will be journeying, you could bring a blanket and/or pillow to make yourself comfortable. If you have a drum or rattle bring that too.
