Inner Child Weekend Retreat
Sacred Valley | February 22nd - 23rd 2020 | All Inclusive
With Heart Opening Sacred Cacao Ceremony
Open your heart to heal and receive
I invite you to a nurturing weekend of rediscovering the essence of your true self through a practical Inner-Child workshop and medatitive cacao ceremony, to connect to your inner authentic rhythm and step into personal healing and empowerment.
The workshop is a personal development program which will assist you to master your emotions so that you can regain your power and put an end to non-serving or sabotaging behaviours and patterns that are causing pain and suffering within you and reflecting outwardly into your life. Many people report that this techique provides a very simple concept to understand and to work with providing a tangible ongoing support for your personal spiritual development.
On the first day an introduction to the content of the workshop and the concept of the Inner Child and Inner Child work, the basic needs of our Inner-Child will be given. Following this, the first of three separate child developmental stages is presented, that being infant (birth to 18 months) where we first meet our Inner-Child, followed by the second stage, the toddler (18 months to 3 years of age).
On the second day, continuing to the third child developmental stage, the pre-schooler (3 to 7 / 8 years of age) and finish with a review of what has been covered and the fundamental steps for continuing the Inner-Child work.
The workshop contains written exercises and guided meditations which include rebirthing, imaginal and regressions, all held within a safe space. The workshop is tailored to meet individual circumstances and needs, paced accordingly, with time for sharing and reflecting stories and experiences.
The ceremony begins with several necessary steps, creating the correct environment in order to invoke the connection to the space where we will do our work. These steps include setting our intentions, inviting in the Cacao Spirit and following our intuition.
During the ceremony cacao gently supports authentic communion with your heart and heart wisdom, so that you can clear any stagnant or blocked energy which is preventing you from living your fullest potential and life.
Cacao may help you to clear emotional blocks, ego patterning and self-sabotaging behaviours, so that you can understand yourself on a deeper level, connect to your creativity, live intuitively and be the fullest expression of your true self.
Raw cacao contains an amazing range of beneficial properties, among these are precursors to neurotransmitters. These chemical messengers affect our mood and can very delicately alter our mental perspectives. These shifts, although subtle, can bring forth an awakened emotional-intelligence, a door to personal transformation through inner journeying and self-love. If you trust, surrender and step aside from self-created obstacles, then cacao can show you many insights. If you choose to work with cacao with commitment, she can be the bridge that awakens you to your personal power and encourages you to make simple changes so that you align with who you truly are and live an authentic and limitless life.
Cacao is a sacred fruit used in ceremonial practice in ancient civilisations; Mayan, Olmec and Aztec, continuing today in South America. In support of working on subtle energy layers, tuning into one’s own rhythm, the retreat offers the opportunity to connect with Cacao and experience the heart opening gifts and ancient wisdom this sacred fruit shares, deepening the authentic relationship within oneself.
Each of our facilitators offer support and guidance throughout the retreat, with a focus on integration; how to form, carve and commit to a practice that honours and nourishes the mind, body and spirit. Our facilitators are dedicated guides choosing a life of service that are here to learn, grow in, witness and share their process through supporting others.
