We Unlock Fear & Unleash Extraordinary Potential
We have designed Unlock 2 Unleash workshops to unlock fear and unleash extraordinary potential in your child! From day workshops to five-day retreats, your child recognises fears, gains confidence, and learns to move through life with consciousness and compassion. Sessions are full of life, action, art, movement, and of course, a whole lot of fun.
Unlock Your Fear
1 Day Workshop
This workshop looks at one’s past, so they can look toward a brighter, more conscious future.
We look at those situations that you blame for who you are. We look at those things that are painful. We look at those times where you felt rejected. We look at those things where you feel you could’ve if you’d just had that opportunity, and then we bring it all to the present, and we show children and teens that they don’t have to hang onto it anymore. That’s the past; this is now. Let us help you reach that next level of who you are, because it’s in there. It’s in there! At the end of the workshop, we begin to understand that we are created from a system that wants to see you succeed in life!
Activities include painting, movement, arts, and other exercises. At the end of the workshop, kids put on a small show to close out the day. The lessons in the workshop are a starting point for feeling better, achieving one’s potential, and being extraordinary!
Art Reflecting Life Retreat
5 Day Workshop
The Art Reflecting Life Youth Retreat creates a living container for support and guidance, using the principles and exercises in Unlock Your Hidden Fear workshops.
It’s a worrying statistic, but between the ages of 15 and 24, the suicide rate is higher than it’s ever been in the last 10 years. Many of us don’t know that 41,000 students across the country are homeless. Art Reflecting Life is a series of activities and challenges based on movement, creative arts, painting, speaking, dancing, and more. Over five days, we really begin to switch on our Kwah!
I hold retreats twice a year in April and September for 12-17 year olds.
Interactive Father, Son & Young Men Workshops
Bringing together younger and elder men
Being a man in the 21st Century is fraught with mixed messages. Man up! Be kind! Don’t feel angry! You gotta have passion! Society tells men and boys they have great privileges being born male – while playing down some of the many hazards. For example, instances of male suicide are three times higher when compared to females (ABS, 2016). Depression, overwork, and disconnection are rife in men, but is seldom talked about on a deep and significant level.
The Unlock 2 Unleash father, son, and young men workshops unlock fear, shame, and compulsions while unleashing one’s greatest strength – vulnerability.
We use three books as our guide:
- The Conscious Parent by Dr. Shefali Tsabary
- Daring Greatly by Brené Brown
- The Battles Men Face by Dr. Gregory L. Jantz, Ph.D.
These interactive workshops create a container for being transparent and vulnerable while being open to connect with other men walking the same path.
If men as fathers and adults can release our past baggage, fears, and shame, we can tackle the challenges of parenting from a place of strength – to become the “rock” our children can depend on.
THE AIM OF UNLOCK TO UNLEASH WORKSHOPS
The aim of all these programs is to find ways for kids to build resilience. They will start to know that this moment that they’re going through, it needs to happen now but there’s more on the other side, and while they’re taking that journey, me and my crew, we got your back!
