Join us for this half-day workshop where we will create an internal experience of safety through guided visualizations of perfect nurturers.

What to Expect

Guided meditation will be the main focus of the program. There will be ample opportunity to ask questions and share whatever you feel comfortable with. There will be no pressure to do so; passive participation is perfectly fine.

We will spend time…

  • troubleshooting to find areas of resistance
  • meditating on different aspects of secure attachment
    • Safety
    • Belonging
    • Unconditional love
    • Support for explorations
    • Delight
    • Problem solving within the zone of proximal development (ZPD)

Workshop Overview

This program is suitable for beginners to meditation and healing work.

This event will draw strongly from

  • Ideal Parent Figure Protocol
  • Attachment Theory
  • Schema Therapy’s image rescripting exercise
  • Inner child work

Issues targeted:

  • Insecure attachment
  • Relationship problems – fear of abandonment, not feeling safe, feeling unvalued in relationships
  • Low self-esteem
  • Poor self-agency and exploration abilities
  • Strong, sometimes overwhelming negative emotional responses

Miscellaneous Notes

Lecture content will be brief, with the content focusing more on experiential learning through meditation and Q&A.

There will be time for Q&A and spot coaching.

We will be doing deep work. For that reason please feel free to take a break at any point.

Walking Meditation

There will be a few breaks for walking meditation, and brief instructions will be given.
