The word, even the most contradictory word, preserves contact – it is silence which isolates Thomas Mann –

29th November – Writing to Your Alienated Child – 19:00-21:00 GMT – Cost £40 per person (family members can join for the cost of one place).

For several generations around the world, children’s relationships in divorce and separation have been reduced to what is called ‘letter box contact’ a restriction which is based upon limited letter writing from parent to child. This limited connection to a parent can cause you to feel as if you are writing into a black hole as month after month, you search for something to say.

What do you say in the face of such disconnection, when you cannot know what your child is feeling, when you cannot share how you are feeling for fear of causing your child to disconnect further or for longer.

During this Listening Circle we will look at ways of writing to your child which enable the deepest connection between you to be held in mind and conveyed to your child, we will consider language and its power and different ways of presenting meaningful words which will connect with the healthy child who is hidden behind the false self.

Listening and Learning Circles are about sharing what works as well as discussing and finding answers to questions, if you have a letter writing style that works, bring it along to share. Together, the pain of letterbox contact can be reduced and managed and I will show you the evidence of how and why you should keep writing, with words from children, now recovered, whose only life line for a time, was the letters they received from a parent they had rejected.
