"Inner Child work is a way of getting in touch with our younger self... it means we can get in touch things long forgotten, things that control us today, and by doing that, WE can take control of our lives. We can find peace and contentment and Freedom to be ourselves." - JS
by Joe Soll and Jen Oakley, these healing
weekends are for adoptees and
mothers who lost children to adoption.
They are a carefully developed progression
of exercises which
lead people to feel safe, enhance
visualization techniques leading to inner
child work, exploring the ability
experience the feelings that are so
scary. Combining these exercises
will allow deep
healing providing new paths to inner
peace, contentment, and freedom to live
A prerequisite to attending a healing weekend is regular participation in our free nightly support group. We want to ensure that a healing weekend is an appropriate next step in your healing journey.
