On re-parenting yourself

Thinking about mothering and parenting today. About raising children and supporting those who are given the Herculean task of shaping those children into adults.
.
Also thinking about how so much of my work is geared toward helping adults learn how to re-parent themselves. To find that inner child – the angry, lost, sorrowful, or broken one – and make space for repair through play and narrative and empowerment and creative self-expression. To learn how to provide the safety and home that our own parents may not have been able to provide.
.
It’s not easy work. It’s not quick necessarily. But it is valuable and life changing. Finding the ability to make your inner you feel safe again, everything becomes possible.
