Tell me more about:
Inner child.. daily encounter of self.
An alternative way to explore aspects of childhood. A period in life everyone of us have experienced differently. Generating conversations around illustration can help us relate to events differently, sharing and listening to others. Learning from experiences of others while assessing ours from different points of view.
The inner Child encounter is a journey of exploration which is fun, easy accessible, producing powerful life changing results,
At the beginning of the journey we have an introductory round so everyone can introduce Him / herself .. we then have a sharing sessions about ourselves. Choose a card and describe objectively / literally what is on the card and then share a bit why we choose this specific cards.
Everyday we have a small session with the cards adding words to it from the other deck and generate conversations around that specific word in combination with the illustration. Other can relate to any card of the participants and share something if they feel like ..
After a few days we are able to construct a story around the subject and either share it in group or release it into the campfire.. at the end of the workshop most of the time 5th day..
