IFS Parenting and Legacies Workshop | Mantra Mooloolaba Beach | Wednesday, 13. November 2019

In this workshop participants will explore the depth and complexity of Parenting and Family - foundational human experiences – including the many forms these concepts show up in our lives. We will examine one of the most powerful yet somewhat hidden influences on us, the various Legacy Burdens that are shaping our lives as a result of Family and Parenting. These unconscious patternings are contracts that bind us to early imaginings and hopes, or family expectations and social requirements.
We all experience Parenting in our life time – as receivers, as givers or as both. The “external parenting” we experience, is directly connected to the “internal parenting” that we are able to provide to ourselves. Similarly, the Family structure we experience externally, is directly connected to our “internal family” and the formation of our personality. Unconscious contracts and intergenerational burdens are carried forward by us, passed on to our children and impact our lives in many different ways.
This dynamic and original workshop will combine theory, demonstrations and experiential activities. Participants will explore how their own internal and external parenting and family interact and shape their lives. Importantly we will also demonstrate and teach how to identify, understand and then release these burdensome vows and out-of-awareness inheritances. 
Israel-based Einat Bronstein and Australian trainer Simon d'Orsogna will jointly offer this unique experiential-learning event in Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast, Queensland over the course of four days in November 13-16th 2019.

Recent participants at Einat's 2019 Australian Level 1 trainings said:
Einat is an excellent trainer, clear, perceptive, experienced, gave lots of examples of actual dialogues of parts, covered lots of ground - of protocol & details, & creative group exercises, plus gave us encouragement to be intuitive & relationally focused by second week. She was very discerning with questions/answers; & gentle, sensitive & wonderfully present in demos & discussions.  
... inspirational and her style is exemplary .. what an honour it has been to witness her work and be in her presence 
... the best trainer I've experienced. She was warm, genuine, available, funny, highly skilled/knowledgeable and Self-led. A true blessing
