Hunger: From Infancy to Intimacywoman with apple500

Whether we are hungry for sex, cookies, connection, or spirit, we all have a sense of the drives within us, and how powerful they are. The exploration of allowing the involuntary of our hunger to be part our life, as well as how to navigate when our hunger goes out of control is a wild and profound ride. 

Part of the puzzle that we will be exploring in this talk is the notion of “stacks”, where early attachment wounds of neglect and trauma result in hunger for attention, affection, attunement, acceptance and appreciation, and leave us with distortions in our nervous system with some combination of profound hunger and numbness. Then we go through puberty, and these distortions are compounded by the hormonal changes and instinctive drive to procreate and connect, thereby stacking on top of the early hungers.

What we are left with, is in short, are highly energized hungers that have roots in both prepubescent and post pubescent hungers.

We have letters and words for language. We have notes and staffs for music. We have colors and shapes for sight. What do we have for sensation? How do we move towards the complexity and beauty of stories or songs or paintings with sensation? Sensation can help us to become more present in the moment, and in what is important in life. How do we become more skilled in the language of sensation amidst a world where there is so little language?

shadow jung 01Exploring more deeply into the notion that we have not only an inner child, but the possibility of an inner parent, we will begin to see some of the expressions that might arise within us. We will touch on the ways that these aspects of self have particular effects on our nervous systems, our physical tension and posture, and several other things.

“We have the opportunity to heal our inner child, to seek it out like a feral cat, and slowly gain it’s trust and make friends with it. In order to do so, we must grow an inner parent that is patient, present and compassionate.”

This will be a combination of presentation and process. Join us!
