Inevitably, in periods of meditation, one confronts aspects of oneself related to memories of the past. Childhood leaves indelible imprints in our mind, structuring it, contributes to the physical sculpting of it through neurological development, and contributes to our unique experience of reality. Contemporary approaches in psychology as well as spiritual practices utilize a notion of an ‘inner child’: a psycho-spiritual image of the individual as a child, with the memories, joys, pains and sadness that one experienced. Though the past is temporally absent from the present, the traces and emotions from this past reverberate in the present and often deeply influences one’s future. Mindful practices can help develop an awareness of the past and one’s inner child, allow mental-emotional space for healing and nurturing of this aspect of the embodied self, and in imagination provide a connection with this past that is echoing in the present.
In this session, we will contemplate this inner child, create a space to open contact, and exchange experiences in order to glimpse how this dimension of our reality impact our shadow and self. As before, a meditation before and after will occur.
