We all have an Inner Child!  In this guided meditation we will connect with it in a loving and caring way.

Sometimes our Inner Child may be hurt or scared…This is the opportunity to bring it close to you and heal it.

Join us for this beautiful experience.

The guided meditation is offered by Ligia M. Houben. Even if you have never meditated before, you will find this class to be relaxing and Ligia guides you step by step in how to achieve relaxation and inner calmness.

It is your experience. It is your space. It is the gift you give to yourself.

As a  certified hypnotherapist, she has specialized in getting deep levels of relaxation. It is a deep meditation with some moments of silence. We start and end with breathing exercises.

Children and Grief Seminar @ The Center for Transforming Lives
Jul 14 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Children and Grief Seminar @ The Center for Transforming Lives | South Miami | Florida | United States

As a thanatologist and having lost my father when I was 12-years-old, I know the importance of understanding how children experience grief.  Children are not “small” adults…therefore the way they experience and express grief is different.

As you know we all experience grief, however, it is a topic we seldom talk about.  In this 2-hour talk, we will explore different types of losses children may experience, focusing on the loss of a loved one.

Children need to be heard and understood. It is more than sending them to counseling. You need to understand the process to be able to help them at home or in the classroom.

Join us for this insightful seminar. Let your friends, teachers, and family members know. It is about time we give our children the right to grieve, express, and connect with their emotions.

RSVP by JULY 12th  is needed. Space is limited
