NATHANIAL - VANCOUVER ISLAND - MODULE 1 INNER CHILD - 2020
Can you share briefly a bit about your background experience or perceptions with inner child and anything about your journey and inner child practice before doing the course?
Before doing the workshop I had read a couple books and found some information online that gave me a basic understanding of the fundamental concepts and objectives of inner child work. I understood that there are sub personalities within myself that have their own emotional needs and expectations. The inner child being one of them can be further broken down into different aspects such as the wounded, emotional, angry child. There are also parts of ourselves that get stuck in their development due to emotional trauma. This information gave me a basic framework for exploring and beginning to communicate with these parts of myself. Most of the work I did was emotional release and understanding their needs and wounds.
Can you share any intentions and goals you had from taking part in the workshop?
I came to this workshop because I felt I was missing something in my process as there was so much releasing but little resolution.
How did the workshop serve in providing you with new tools and techniques to carry on your practice?
The workshop definitely helped a great deal as it gave me more tools to effectively communicate to my inner child as well understand how I can more deeply interact with him and fulfill his emotional needs, which lead to major resolutions for these conflicted parts of myself and a greater sense of peace and calm that came as a direct result. I’m finding myself being less triggered in previously challenging situations. When triggers do cause an emotional response I’m finding it much easier to recognize the part of me that’s challenged and just be with it allowing it to be heard and felt which then dissipates the charge.
Can you share a little bit about your overall experience of the online workshop?
The experience was great for me. Amy has a calm and gentleness that radiates clearly and an understanding that shows she’s walking the path herself. I enjoyed our meetings so much and after the first, I was very much looking forward to the next ones. There was much insight, release, resolution, and growth within the sessions. There’s also been much after from continuing with the techniques. It definitely gave me a major missing piece to the puzzle that allowed me to take my own practice further.
