Our mother…. “will continue to press every button we have, until we realize what it is that we don’t want to know about ourselves yet. They will point us to our freedom ever time.” Byron Katie
This teleclass is designed to explore the primal ways that our relationship with mother is so deeply shaped by our first stressful memory of her. Discover the ways those early memories formulate how we live out that relationship.
Whether you think you are done with your work around your mother or are just beginning, you are invited to join in this conversation to see what is left that caused separation. It does not matter if you were taken away or given away, if you were raised by a monster or a saint; you are invited to join this conversation in discovering the ways you are still other~realized so that you may better become self~realized, for your freedom’s sake.
All are welcome to this teleclass, whether you are a beginner to The Work or more experienced. This Work is about questioning your stressful stories around your childhood. Contact Jen if you are new to The Work to discuss your readiness for this curriculum.
Doing The Work will help you to identify what you believe about how “off” or wrong your mother was and is, how she could have done better raising you, and places she was hurtful or unloving.
We will investigate our earliest memories and how that play into our current experiences towards ourselves, our mothers and all our relationships. You may be left with an intimacy difficult to imagine.
This teleclass consists of 6~ 90 minute sessions and one hour of partner homework in between sessions.
Class 1: Early memories and how I am right Class 2: Is she a snake or a rope? Class 3: The power of self-facilitation Class 4: It's about concepts, not mothers Class 5: Shame, an obstacle to self-love Class 6: Making amends
