Update on my Parent Coaching Certification!

I'm definitely in the right place. So far the material is all about attachment theory and regulating the nervous system. The focus isn't on "tips and tricks to get your kids to ___________", but rather on building mutually fulfilling relationships with children or anyone else, really. My teacher is a kindred spirit, zooming live from her yurt in Kansas where she holds her own transformational group sessions. My peers are teachers, doctors, legal professionals and parents deepening in their own self knowledge and learning how to approach clients with curiosity and compassion necessary to inspire growth that is unique to each person.

When I announced my plan to do this work, my friend who is a Kindergarten teacher at a local Waldorf school invited me to jump in and get started with the tools I already have from my years of energy healing and facilitation experience. I'm excited to announce the first round of my Generational Healing Workshop. We offered it first to the Greenwood Tree community, and I would like to extend the invitation to my friends list as well.

What to expect:

Drum Meditation
Deep Presence in Community
Runic Wisdom
A Safe Container for Gentle Self Discovery

If you're interested in these sorts of offerings please message me with your email address and I'll put you on my email list. I am eager to network and repeat this workshop as long as it's relevant (meaning... forever!)

Hi everyone! Bridgid here. If you know me, you know I’m on the healing path, just getting after it and taking it as far as it will go. So here’s where I’m at in my journey so far.

Becoming a mother has been my catalyst for so much deep inner work- really juicy shadow work, inner child healing, and the kinds of soulful transformations you’d have to be there to believe.

As a mother, I’ve navigated postpartum depression, housing and food insecurity, recovery from alcoholism,

I’ve been a working mother, caring for my babies during the day and then high-fiving my husband as he walks in the door, heading on my way out to work as a waitress till the wee hours of the morning, then nursing into the dawn.

I supported my autistic child through developmental therapies and institutional education and then chose to walk away from that paradigm and live that sweet, all-encompassing homeschool life.

I am so grateful for the support of my family and community helping us through those hard times and I’m proud to say we live to tell the tale!

All of this has been very difficult and also very worthwhile and transformative. I’m sharing all my personal business to say that- I think I have a lot of experience and empathy to offer struggling parents.

There is so much generational pain that gets passed down unconsciously from generation to generation. It can take a Herculean effort to shield our young from the woundings we hold onto when we’re parents. I can see very clearly how my parents improved upon the conditions in which they were raised, and I’ve done the same. The evolution of ancestral trauma and healing is fascinating to me!

Now that my kids are a little older and my life isn’t such a whirlwind, I can truly say that our mother/child relationships are what I’m most proud of. I’m proud of the work I’ve done to grow and maintain our authentic connection. I’d like to help other struggling parents and kids find the same.

So, I’ve enrolled in a conscious parent coaching certification through Jai Institute for Parenting. To quote their literature, "Their strategies allow parents to successfully shift out of the dominant (power over) paradigm of parenting, which creates disconnection, resentment and rebellion… to the relational paradigm of parenting which restores connection, trust and respect."

Nourishing the next generation and strengthening family ties is how I believe I can make a meaningful impact for a better world. We all have our contributions, and I think mine is in my sensitivity and how sacred I consider childhood and ancestral bonds and family ties.

I’m asking for your help in making this investment easier on my family. The tuition is $3,250 and I’m hoping to match that amount with this fundraising campaign. Plus a little extra for fees and shipping.

As a healer, I’ve doven into the wisdom of the Runes. Runes are pre-Christian Northern European symbols representing different themes of life. They are used to gain insight into our journeys and can also be used as power objects, infusing essential concepts into your life. For more information on Runes and their meaning, follow me on Instagram @healingwellcrafts, where I’m posting a year-long Runic study in the timing of the Runic Calendar.

I have made 30 sets of Runes, including all 24 symbols of the elder futhark. These are available with a donation of $45 or more*.

I’m also offering custom rune staves. We can chat about what sorts of energies you want to bring into your home or your spiritual practice, and I’ll design a stave that assists you in your journey. These are available with a donation of $65 or more*.

*Please indicate which reward you would like. Rune bags limited to 30 sets.

If you don’t like Runes but still want to help me get my certification, feel free to donate any amount and I will gratefully accept!

Thank you so much for your support! I’m so excited to level up my healing skillset and help other parents bring harmony and connection into their relationships with their children.

Take care and hope to see you soon.
