Re-Parenting: An Inside Job
a unique 12-week online course with Lyndall Johnson & Charisse Lyons
January 8 – March 5th, 2021
Our first offering filled so quickly, and not everyone was able to attend. Due to popular demand, we’re offering this unique and powerful transformational course a second time in 2021.
This is highly recommended material for anyone in a Tonglen Group, anyone in therapy or spiritual direction, anyone doing inner work on their childhood issues, or anyone that is a parent. Making connections to our childhood is a way to further understand and connect to our internal loving relationship as an adult, so this course is highly recommended for everyone.
All of us learned how to be in relationship with ourselves from our parents as well as other significant adults in our lives. How our parents parented us has been learned and incorporated into how we relate to every age of our own being, in complete unawareness. The outer dynamic has become the inner dynamic and will be lived out unless the work of becoming aware is engaged in with commitment.
To the extent that our parents punished and judged us, is the extent to which we will punish and judge ourselves. If our parents indulged us, we will indulge ourselves. If our parents demanded and expected perfection from us, we will do the same to ourselves.
Understanding the right response to every age within ourselves requires study and intention. Without any self-interest, self-compassion and wisdom to correct inner dynamics, we will perpetuate dysfunctional and self-abusive patterns of behavior within ourselves, as well as with our own children, friends and family. Our choice is to live out the fate of our programming and memory or wake-up to radical change and fulfill our fullest potential as humans.
In this course we will study age and stage appropriate responses to what we notice arising within ourselves. We will learn to recognize the ages within that are young and require a loving response from the mature part of ourselves. This inner intimacy and connection will translate into relationships with others that are meaningful and intimate as well.
We will also study the developmental needs and capacities of different ages in childhood; emotionally, intellectually, socially and relationally, so that we can see what is required in relationship with those parts of us that have been hurt, neglected, and stuck.
Don’t miss this special opportunity; this is a closed course and will fill quickly!
