Criándome, Cuidándome: Healing Intergenerational Trauma Through Reparenting our Inner Children
Wednesday, September 22
Leslie Priscilla, founder of Latinx Parenting, is a first generation Xicana with Rarámuri lineage. She is a mother to three bicultural children and a certified Parent Coach with over 14 years of experience. Leslie shares her medicine by offering coaching, workshops, support and advocacy for Latinx/Chicanx families locally, nationally and internationally via Latinx Parenting. Leslie’s vision is of a movement rooted in children's rights, social and racial justice, the individual and collective practice of nonviolence and reparenting, intergenerational and ancestral healing, cultural sustenance, and the active decolonization of oppressive practices in our families towards liberation.
During this Great Minds, Brave Spaces, Leslie will unpack how the challenges we face as 1) current or potential parents, guardians, or caretakers, and 2) direct products of our upbringing, can make respectful, non-punitive parenting more difficult to achieve. It is not about blaming or shaming our parents or guardians, but rather, acknowledging that we all have childhood wounds that may require us to reparent ourselves so that we can break the cycle. Leslie will share her mission to End Chancla Culture and how her experiences as an early childhood professional started her on a journey of self-reflection and healing, which then inspired her to create trauma-informed, healing-centered programs to support others in learning how to reparent their inner child, break intergenerational cycles of trauma, and become the parents and guardians they wish to be – either for themselves or others.
This workshop is for everyone; the healing that is so desperately needed at this time in our society, begins at home and within ourselves. As individuals, cultivating & sustaining an authentic connection with our inner child will support the unfolding of emotionally healthy, self-aware children, liberated families & a peaceful world.
