We all have an inner child, buried within
Healing involves getting back in touch with this child.
A core part of my personal healing has been reconnecting with this little girl inside. Going back to my earliest years and looking at how I began. How I was loved, nourished, and “invented” to be the person I see myself as today. Inner Child Work feels essential in healing our trauma, addictive behaviors, seeing our attachment patterns clearly, and also essential in understanding our strengths, gifts, desires, and buried dreams. It’s essential to rediscovering what the face of our personal genius looks like. Who is this child within who got buried beneath so much survival stress and societal demands??

Despite the freedom we gain in growing into an “adult,” we also develop limiting beliefs which impact our health. Inner Child Work can help us get back that sense of freedom permeating our childhood. I believe that by leveraging our Inner Child, we can grow younger while still facing adult challenges.

There’s a deep drive in me to understand what’s normal for humans – as opposed to what’s common to the Industrial Western world. I’ve found that a lot of ancestral traditions hold wisdom and embodiment which isn’t common in modern living. AND… I see children as modern citizens with the greatest access to this innate wisdom because they haven’t been trained to forget what’s natural.
I remember so many nights, standing in line at my local drugstore, half-alive under the buzzing fluorescents, waiting to pay for an over-the-counter sleep aid. This was not the solution I wanted and left me feeling yucky the following day. But...
Growing up, I used to joke that I was born two hundred years too late.This was a silly thing to say if you look at women's rights, economics, short life-spans, and so many other factors pre-industrial women had to deal with. As a pre-teen, I was too young...
It was my first year at Burning Man and was, in many ways, a living dream. An event I'd fantasized attending for years was suddenly a reality and I was immersed in the indescribable magic which only a virgin burner could. The downside being: I was...
