Attachment Style Workshop

Understanding Your Attachment Style and How It Impacts Relationships

“Healthy intimacy requires trusting offer of our true self to another and our trusting acceptance of the other’s true self in return.” – Pia Mellody

As human beings we are bonding animals and hard-wired for attachment. Join us as we explore the various attachment styles, why there is often an adaptation to survive the reality we find ourselves in, and ways to bridge back to the hard-wired secure style that is covered up by the adaptation.

Through these lectures and interactive exercises, you will learn to recognize various early attachment styles such as:

  • Secure
  • Avoidant
  • Ambivalent
  • Disorganized

How the group works

In this workshop we will focus on how everyone can cultivate deeper connection, meaning and passion in adult relationships by working to heal early attachment wounds. You will learn to understand unconscious dynamics that block the ability for intimacy and how to overcome them to achieve better communication, trust and closeness. We will explore specific examples of how early patterns developed within our families obsecure our innate ability to bond. In addition, working with the original wounding pattern, we will focus on how to excavate the intrinsic healthy attachment system that exists naturally in our human design.

We have the capacity to heal the past and live more fully in the present. Understanding the source of our patterns and applying the right understanding to unwind them releases new energy to live fully and freely in the moment.
