We all carry unresolved wounds, secrets, and pain from our childhood. Whether it was a friend moving away, caregivers who believed children should be “seen and not heard,” complex trauma, or needs that went unmet, as adults we can access our inner child to re-parent ourselves and heal. The tarot, when used a tool for self-reflection, can be a profound partner in the process of working with our inner child.
Healing the Child Within is a workshop on using the tarot for inner child work, guided by folk tarot reader and PTSD survivor Tessa Giberson. Together we’ll use the tarot to reflect on and release past painful experiences, feel our emotions in real time, communicate with our inner child, heal intergenerational and parental wounds, and extend compassion towards ourselves.
Prior experience with tarot may be helpful but not required for participation. This is not a theory-based workshop and we won’t be covering any tarot card theory.
This workshop may feel therapeutic, but is not intended as a substitute for therapy and the facilitator is not a therapist. Tess does not claim or intend to fix, treat, or diagnose trauma or any health condition. Inner child work can be triggering, so please honour your self and your nervous system.
