This is a class to help you understand - and break free from - the counter-productive behavioral patterns you learned in childhood.
When we are face-to-face with present day anxieties and struggles, it can seem far-reaching and inopportune to consider our childhoods. But this is precisely the place we must look in order to understand the conditioning of our families of origin that contribute to our present-day troubles. Patterns we learned from our families in childhood will affect us no matter what. But the more aware we are of these patterns and the more tools we have at our disposal to modify our responses to them, the healthier we will be.
Ultimately, we all know that there are certain thoughts, feelings and behaviors that we all have that we can trace back to our family of origin. Some of these experiences manifest themselves in pleasant ways, such as how we celebrate certain holidays, how we communicate with each other, or that feeling you get when you see your parents together. Some experiences can manifest themselves in unpleasant ways, such as how we celebrate certain holidays, how we communicate with each other, or that feeling you get when you see your parents together.
See what just happened there?
Depending on your experiences in your family of origin, perhaps one of those sentences fits better for you than the other. And sometimes those past experiences inhibit your ability to enjoy your present family or work life in some way. This class will help you uncover some of these patterns that may be manifesting in your life today.
When we can honestly look into our experience as a child, then we can more clearly understand our adult experiences. This class will guide you to understand your younger self so you can shape who you want to be now.
