Attachment Theory & Repair – 8-week Online Meditation Course (Late Option)
October 17, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC-4
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Monday, repeating until November 7, 2022
Join us for this course where we will do visualization practices that use “perfect nurturers” to reparent our inner child. The intended outcome is to get you doing the meditation practice to move you along the path towards earned secure attachment
This program is for people who have insecure attachment, in particular those who have tried other healing modalities, like psychotherapy and mindfulness meditation, with disappointing results.
Latecomers will get access to recordings for any missed sessions. Classes will be run twice each week to accommodate people in different timezones. Participants can attend either slot.
Donation-based so all can attend.
In this course we will cover:
– The basics of attachment theory
– How it forms much of the developmental foundation for adult mental health
– How attachment conditioning is made up of attachment schemas which together form an “internal working model of attachment” (Bowlby)
– We will re-pattern and work through these attachment schemas systematically
– How insecure attachment usually implies deficits in mentalization capacities (metacognitive, perspective taking abilities)
– Which we start correcting in the guided meditation
– How to heal our early attachment conditioning in order to have much improved well-being, better romantic and platonic relationships, and a stronger, healthy sense of self.
– There will also be an experiential quiz at the end of the first class to help you get a sense for what your attachment style maybe.
– This is a Practice oriented course.
– Doing the work (meditations in this case) is what brings about the results. The learning content of the course is intended to guide and encourage the meditation practice.
Participants in this course have the option to join a practice pod. This is an informal group of 3-5 students who meet, usually once a week, to listen to a guided meditation, discuss difficulties in practice, and share insights and progress. Connecting with peer learners in this way can keep you motivated, consolidate learning, and create a sense of community.
