The Healing Journey: Nurture the Gift that You Are

Valuing and creating a healthy relationship with self is an important component of healing from emotional wounds. Less than nurturing experiences in childhood cause us to adapt and become who we think will please others, creating codependency and dissatisfaction in relationships. After your 3-day journey, you will begin the process of resolving past hurts that have kept you stuck in unproductive and destructive patterns (depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, and painful relationships). The focus is not on blaming caregivers, but rather healing the trauma of any past events impacting your adult life.

How the group works

Phase 1: Educational participants will be presented with an overview of Pia’s model regarding childhood trauma, and the impact unresolved trauma has on current relationships, including relationship with self. Participants will begin to understand the relationship between the child and the adult, as perceived by the child. It is from these relationships that children internalize their sense/source of value and worth.

Phase 2: Debriefing with the help of the therapist, participants will explore the less-than-nurturing and/or abusive recollected childhood experiences with a focus on the associated emotions.

Phase 3: Experiential guided by the therapist, participants move through a series of specific processes developed by Pia Mellody, which help to identify and heal childhood relational trauma issues. In this safe environment, participants often release painful emotions and begin the process of reclaiming their rights and personal power.

Phase 4: Ongoing healing participants will receive a set of strategies, tools and resources to use on a daily basis for ongoing recovery, self empowerment and healing.
