Inner Child Healing Masterclass & Meditation

Inner Child healing is the most powerful transformational technique in the world.

I do not say that lightly. Healing the i nner child:

Is the foundation of all freedom
Is the foundation of all happiness
Is the foundation of positive loving relationships
Is the foundation of your greatest gifts and skills

Coming to complete peace with your past, integrating the lessons and bringing your deep acceptance of yourself to life is the ultimate journey to your greatest joy and fulfilment.

On this training you will be given tools, techniques and tips for engaging with the inner child in the most beautiful and effective way.

You will also discover the most important understanding of how self sabotage and self destructive patterns are trying on some level to protect you. 

And then you will be shown how to lovingly dissolve those limiting patterns so that you can truly bring your best to life.

For the last 20 years I have dedicated my life to the art and science of healing the inner child. It has been the main focus of my private practice and it will be a great pleasure and privilege to share what I have learnt with you.

As you will discover... it is time!

Synopsis: Spaceship Earth is the true, stranger-than-fiction, adventure of eight visionaries who in 1991 spent two years quarantined inside of a self-engineered replica of Earth’s ecosystem called BIOSPHERE 2. The experiment was a worldwide phenomenon, chronicling daily existence in the face of life threatening ecological disaster and a growing criticism that it was nothing more than a cult. The bizarre story is both a cautionary tale and a hopeful lesson of how a small group of dreamers can potentially reimagine a new world.
