New Meeting In Milwaukee – Reparenting My Inner Child

Happy New Year Fellow Travelers,
We have a new meeting you are all welcome to participate in the Beginning of 2020. (See attached flyer)

What: Reparenting My Inner Child – (Central Coast Intergroup’s Workbook)
When: Starting January 4th, Every Saturday @ 10:00am
Where: Evangelical Covenant Church 7727 W. Center St Milwaukee WI 53222
Cost: Workbooks are $5 each (22 Chapters)
Support Provided: Experience the unconditional support we all deserved as children to become our “True Selves” living happy, joyous & free.

To be our own Loving Parents we need to have a relationship with our Inner Children. As our own Loving Parents, we have to reach out and make contact with our Inner Children because we are the adults. So while our focus is on communicating with our Inner Children, the skills we are developing in ACA are how to become our own Loving Parents.

Becoming our own Loving Parents is a way for us to review the past from our vantage points of adults and provide the fragmented children inside us with ways to develop

  • A relationship between our Loving Parent and our Inner Child
  • A solid foundation for natural emotional growth
  • A complete identity
  • A process for grieving to close the doors on the past
  • A plan to resolve the neglect, abandonment, abuse, and trauma of childhood that stunted our emotional growth so we can complete the life stages we did not finish

In doing so, we learn tools to use and get the emotional support of our ACA family that will allow us to build healthy, happy, and functional adult lives.
