SATURDAY

The Inner Child Journey – A workshop for mothers and fathers, with Robin Grille

This is an experiential workshop for parents and adults only. This is not appropriate for children.  We will be learning how to take an inner journey that helps us see the dilemmas of parenting as the greatest personal growth and healing journey of our lives. So often, it is not our child that has the issue – we do. 

Your own life as a child is one of the strongest influences on how you parent today.

Do you remember what it felt like to be a child? Are there some memories you’d rather forget? Some memories that bring you joy? The emotional paths you trod as a child hold a treasury of wisdom. Just to touch lightly upon the emotions of childhood can help you immensely to:

  • Understand your own child better, from the inside
  • Free you from repeating old inherited behaviour patterns
  • Intuit what your baby and child is asking for and know how to meet his/her emotional needs
  • Help your child to trust you and listen to you
  • Help your child to feel heard, seen and secure
  • Heal old emotional wounds and bring more joy to parenting
  • Deepen your sense of connection to others and to your community

In this workshop you will be shown ways to safely tap into the wisdom of your ‘inner child’, and gain much trust in your inner knowing about how to respond to your child. This process can be very freeing, empowering, healing for you and richly enhancing of your relationship with your child.

Helping your Children Heal from Emotional Wounds with Robin Grille

From time to time every child experiences something frightening, sad or painful.

Difficult feelings, even post-traumatic stress, can sometimes linger and resurface. These days there is so much information available about what helps children develop – but sometimes this information can be a little scary. We feel ever more pressured as parents to ‘get it right’. Many parents are worried by the implications of the new child-development sciences, and wonder fretfully: ‘have I caused some damage to my child?’

There are simple but very powerful steps we can take as parents to help our children to heal from the wounds and disappointments life sometimes brings. How do we help our children to heal, grow and move through?

In this workshop for parents, grandparents, child-carers, teachers and health practitioners, we will look at topics such as:

  • Healing hurts that happened before your child learned to speak.
  • Helping babies, toddlers, children and adolescents with their BIG emotions.
  • Helping children at the heart level – even when there are painful circumstances beyond our control.
  • Dealing with anger and blame.
  • Parent-guilt: why we feel guilty sometimes, and how to let go and open up to learning new ways of relating.
