Community Group “Connecting With Your Inner Child”
Welcome to Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Nederland’s Community Group!
We welcome you to an online space where we can come together, learn about different topics that have to do with the effects of trauma, and, if you feel comfortable, share a little bit about your own experience with the topic. In the past, we’ve explored topics such as; trauma and your brain, trauma and memory, trauma and self-care, and trauma and your gut. The topic for the next Community Group will be “Connecting With Your Inner Child and will take place on Sunday the 8th of May from 16.00 – 17.00 Central European Summer Time (CEST)
What is a Community Group?
During the one-hour LIVE-ONLINE Community Group, we will engage in a short Trauma-Sensitive Yoga practice, introduce a topic to you (introduced by a speaker), and open the group for a discussion, if this is useful to you. You are by no means obligated to share. Sometimes, depending on the topic, there will be a reflective exercise instead of a short Trauma-Sensitive Yoga practice.
We organize a Community Group once a month, to come together and to let you know that you are not alone on this journey. During the online lessons, there isn’t much time to discuss or perhaps learn about trauma and the body. This is what we prioritize during Community Group. It isn’t a group therapy session, simply a place to come together and potentially learn.
Every Community Group we have a different speaker introducing a different topic, and every Community Group we will have a different Co-Host, this month:
Surviving trauma can mean that you’ve had to grow up really fast in order to survive. Once the trauma isn’t actively happening any more, although your body might still feel like the trauma is happening right now, it can be healing to connect with your inner child. During this Community Group, we will explore through multiple reflective exercises, a connection with your inner child.
This Community Group session will help you if:
You’re wanting to explore a connection with your inner child and notice that your adult responses are rooted in your childhood self.
What will you learn:
You will learn to reflect on yourself as a child
Exploring if some of your adult responses are rooted into your childhood self
What does your inner child need, learning to hear your inner child by using reflective exercises
Learning how to spend time with your inner child and how to show your inner child that your adult self can take care of your inner child
What do you need:
Pen and paper, this can be a diary or simply a piece of paper and a pen.
If you do not attend the online lessons you are also welcome to join the Community Group and learn about trauma and the body.
After booking your place here on the website, you will receive the zoom link to attend the Community Group send to you by Eva Reitsma.
The group will be facilitated in English, however, the co-host will be translating in the chatbox where needed. The zoom link will be sent to those attending closer to the time.
