Connect + Reflect – life navigation for kids ages 10-14

  • Do you know or have a child who is ready or wanting to begin navigating this world of ours?
  • Do you want to set your child free but wish him to be a bit more discerning in his discoveries?
  • Do you want your child to feel a greater connection to the people and places she encounters on her way so that she can feel safer and more empowered?
  • Do you want him to develop his intuition and learn to tune in to his gut?

In this 3 1/2 -hour workshop, developed by Bernadette, we’ll cover all this and then some – through experience, exploration and discussion, offering our kids a greater sense of self, a deeper connection to the people and places they encounter and the ability to reflect and tune into their own intuition.
