The second workshop builds upon the tools that you have developed during the Inner Child work. We recommend that you have achieved the following before considering this second module:
- You have an active relationship, both in daily routine and in the meditative space with your Inner Child
- You have been challenged by your Inner Child in aspects of the trust relationship
- Your Inner Child has revealed events from your childhood that have contributed to your ongoing integration
- You are contemplating present events with subjective meaning
- You have witnessed at least one long term behavioural shift
- You may or may not have been introduced to other characters from your unconscious
In the second module we create a safe space to interface with other characters of our unconscious which allows our Inner Child to reveal deeper aspects of our ancestral story and work towards deeper integration. We learn the tools to approach and to interpret these encounters, how to ask for what we need and how to respond, understanding and resolving non-serving energetic contracts.
We use the word archetype for a broad array of characters that can introduce themselves from the personal and collective unconscious. These can present themselves as a characteristic representation of an energy manifestation, as is familiar in the Tibetan practice of chod; a character that represents a missing integrational key, such as an unborn relative, long lost friend or childhood imaginary friend; a typical archetype mentioned in the work of Carl Jung; mythological figures such as gods and other deities; or an archaic animal archetype often anthropomorphised into communicative form who shares deep soul guidance and more fundamental aspects of our personal journey. These characters enact the required symbolism that is required for us to identify a narrative that will lead us along our exploratory adventures with our Inner Child.
This inner soul journey brings us along a path of purification as we resolve emotional and energetic blockages, align our sense of being and begin to learn the necessary requirements and tools we need in order to raise our spiritual integrity towards inner spaciousness and liberation. We learn to accept the responsibility required for each level of access into deeper knowledge and become the comfortable inhabitors of our own inner domain which will ready us for moving into Module 3, the Inner Corpus.
The Workshop consists of around 6 and a half hours instruction. It can be completed in two sessions or three shorter sessions, depending on the participants and their requirements. The workshop carries on from the Inner Child workshop to present tools required for deeper exploration of the unconscious. Again, we ask that you share as much as you can of your personal journey with your practitioner in order for them to guide you best during these sessions. We recommend that group workshops are kept to small and intimate sizes, where participants have been carefully selected for suitability within the group, allowing all members to feel comfortable to share openly their past and what comes up during the workshop.
