Reconciliation: Healing the Inner Child
Date: October 2015
Duration: 4 hours 10 minutes
Based on Dharma talks by Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and insights from participants in retreats for healing the inner child, Reconciliation is an exciting contribution to the growing trend of using Buddhist practices to encourage mental health and wellness. Reconciliation focuses on the mindful awareness of our emotions and the healing of our relationships as well as meditations and exercises to acknowledge and transform the hurt that many of us experienced as children. Hanh shows how anger, sadness, and fear can become joy and tranquility by learning to breathe with, explore, meditate, and speak about our strong emotions.
Written for a wide audience and accessible to people of all backgrounds and spiritual traditions, Reconciliation offers specific practices designed to bring healing and release for people suffering from childhood trauma.
