In this family relationships workshop, we will explore our childhood relationships.
Our family relationship begins with those associated with our Mother, Father, Sister and Brother. We benchmark the amount of love we receive against what we get from these people, or how much they get compared to us.
We are expected to bond with our Mother from the moment we are born. Sometimes this doesn’t happen and we struggle our whole life to believe that we are wanted by her, loved by her, cared for by her.
Our father may have been distant or absent, due to being busy working. Or, he may have been the one we bonded strongly with, given that our Mother wasn’t available to us.
Siblings play a key part in our relationships whether we come from a small or large family. Our place in the hierarchy has us believing that we aren’t as good as them, in some way, or different if we are the only girl amongst a larger family of boys, for example.
In this weekend workshop, we will explore our family relationships, with our Mother, Father, Sister and Brother. We will dive back into our childhood experiences to understand and look at how we saw ourselves back then. Did you think you weren’t good enough? You may have believed that you needed to make your Mum happy all the time, in order to be okay.
What we’ll explore during the weekend
We will work through different activities to collect our stressful thoughts, and then work them using The Work.
Some of the exercises include:
- I assume my Mother/Father/Sister/Brother…….
- My Mother shouldn’t….
- I resent my Sister/Brother because…
- My Sister/Brother doesn’t like me because…
How the weekend runs
We open our day with a meditation and bringing ourselves into the present. Time is spent on exercises and then working beliefs from our lists. We take a ‘Morning Walk’ getting still and noticing our thoughts also, on one of the days.
There are morning and afternoon breaks for water/herbal tea top ups. We have a lunch break in which we go to a local eatery.
