About the Event
Its time to come together in play, ridiculousness, laughter, and expression!✨🧚🏼
SPECIAL DRUM CIRCLE ADDITION FOR THIS COMMUNITY PLAY DATE!
*bring your own lawn or beach chair if you'd like to sit during the drum circle portion of this event, we will have limited seating, but the earth is always a welcoming seat!
This is a community event that has a focus on the child: our children we've brought into this world, and the inner child within us who is still craving silliness and exploration!
Every month we're going to dive into movement & play that intrigues, excites, and invites our children to dance, yell, make a mess, destroy, create, and live in a free, true, and wild way.
This will be a protected container, which means that there will be boundaries held during the classes to protect children and individual personal body boundaries. Things like: not being picked up or touched without permission and consent from the individual (or parent/caregiver), no judgements of peoples choice of expressions or lack of expressions (remembering that judgement is a mirror of our own insecurities), and kind/respectful/honoring language being used when speaking to others within the container. I will do my best to hold these specific boundaries as the host of this event (I take this very seriously), but I am an advocate for you to use this space to practice placing and holding loving boundaries for yourself and for your children, because we all have different limits and to understand you we need to hear you!
💖These gatherings are flexible and fun, incorporating a lot of body movement, dancing, singing, chanting, and overall chaos.
💖Most of us are taught to suppress our emotions and feelings, so we suppress our voice and movements- this is a space to practice coming back into our bodies and voices.
💖Children (and us adults) need safe outlets for their weird, crazy, fun expressions of emotions and feelings.
💖Its time to remember the magic of bubbles, ribbon wands, silly dancing, breath, and fascination with our human experience. Its time for an inner child reclamation!
This months run down of our time together:
ʕ·ᴥ·ʔ Welcome time: welcoming everyone into the circle and beginning to move the energy with shakey eggs and songs!
ʕ·ᴥ·ʔ Drum Circle time: exploration of movement and instruments like shakey eggs, drums, tambourines, and more! Rainbow parachute adventures will also be a part of circle time!
ʕ·ᴥ·ʔ Sensory time: sensory and art exploration stations like: paints, chalk, markers, and of course, bubble stations!
ʕ·ᴥ·ʔ Bubble party: giant bubbles, little bubbles, and bubbles of sizes in between!
ʕ·ᴥ·ʔ Connection time: clean up time, drumfirmations (affirmations with drumming!), and om circle closing

🧚🏼WHAT IS THE INNER CHILD?
The inner child is an archetype (think of it like a mascot) of our personality that holds all of the lived experiences of our past. When we get back in touch with our inner child through play, visualizations, letters, and other tools, we make space for healing those parts of our experiences that were hard or challenging for us as children. It gives us more space to look at our beliefs that we formed because of these years and took into our adulthood that might not be quite serving us!
💖So i invite you and your families to join me, Cierra, to party and play with me outdoors!
