Criándome, Cuidándome is an 8-week, self-paced series focused on practicing healing tools that prevent us from projecting our wounds onto our children.
In this series you will learn and practice:
🌻 The fundamental pillars of Reparenting/Remothering Ourselves
🌻 Practices of reparenting ourselves that help heal past and generational trauma
🌻 Active deconstructing of the cultural norms about gender and childhood impact the way we learn to handle our emotions when we’re children
🌻 Self-regulation tools that soothe and strengthen our central nervous system
🌻 Engaging in community to receive empathy with some of the challenges that arise when our children's behaviors uncover our wounds
🌻 Integrating what it looks like to bond with our inner children and nurture them so that we can remain connected with and nurture our outer children
Brown Badass Bonita x Latinx Parenting are partnering!!! Join us for Liberando Nuestras Voces: The Trauma of “Calladita te vez mas bonita!” and the importance of intergenerational messages
We want to raise powerful Hijas who will use their voice and own their poder.
The Inner Niña/o/x Holding Circle will be a hands-on facilitation of the Reparenting process led by Leslie Priscilla, founder of Latinx Parenting. Participants, and the inner children of all participants, will be invited to show up and embody both the vulnerability of the Inner Niña/o/x and the strength and wisdom of the Inner Parent, as guided by the Future Abuelita/o/x Self.
We will have the opportunity to practice holding, somatic attention, and reflective listening, and be held and listened to in a safe, trauma-informed, healing centered space. We will also play! People who are new to the reparenting process and returning Criandome Cuidandome Reparenting Ourselves Course participants are welcome and encouraged to join. It will not be recorded in favor of confidentiality.
A BRAND-NEW kind of event to support you!
This is not a typical "sit and listen" online summit. We're incorporating what science tells us about trauma and learning to bring you a holistic experience that combines movement and meditation to make learning easier and more fun.
Join us as we learn from renowned experts in the fields of child development, neuroscience, psychology, and parenting!
