Your "inner child" is much more than just a metaphor, but an active co-creator of your life: you may be aware of this, especially if positive experiences of your childhood are reflected in your life through your enthusiasm, your spontaneity, your amazement and childlike curiosity.
Mostly, however, your inner child unconsciously makes itself felt through negative experiences: when you feel hurt, rejected, unloved, misunderstood, abandoned and vulnerable. Then it even makes itself "loudly" noticeable in your life: by reacting, feeling, perceiving, living, as unfulfilled heart's desires for unconditional acceptance and love make clear.
Imagine how your life changes when you are ready to perceive and integrate your feelings. ... When you admit to yourself to be solely responsible for the joy and harmony in your life. …. If you allow yourself to encounter life in a curious, playful, spontaneous and lively way. How does it feel for you when you imagine that you are joyfully enjoying your lived relationships? And what do you feel when you imagine that you consciously shape your life?
With the mindfulness practices Breathwork (connected breath), meditation and yoga (no previous knowledge required) we want to go on a deep journey of self-discovery during the week. On the one hand, we want to bring the positive experience of childhood into consciousness and use it as a resource. On the other hand, we want to consciously give ourselves the emotional attention and mindfulness in the here and now that we lacked in childhood. We try to integrate and dissolve consciously or unconsciously arising developmental traumas from childhood.
Because "it is never too late for a happy childhood", as Erich Kästner so accurately put it, and it is never too late to decide for a harmonious, self-determined life.
To take part in the course a state of emotional grounding is required as well as integrity and self responsibility. The course is not psychotherapeutically conducted, but we’ll guide and support you sensitively and versed.
During this week you will have time to explore the incredible nature surrounding: the gigantic mountain ranges and the fresh and crystal clear lakes. You can generously relax, enjoy massages, eat wonderfully prepared vegetarian food. The costs for leisure time-equipment (hiking boots, swim wear, massage) as well as massage treatment, sauna and private Breathwork sessions are not included in the course fee.
The course will be held in English & German.
