Welcome in our circle where like-minded parents and caregivers meet. In the middle of the circle are their children, age 0-7 years. They are not there physically, they are there at the heart of the encounter. The light of the children is so bright, their play is so full of life, we can not help but see them. In the pure child circles we as caregivers look at our children and the invitations and treasures they hold for us to ‘simply’ live.

We share that we believe in the purety of our children, their wholeness and the challenges they offer us to grow, to love, to live. Together we unpack their gifts to live a wonderful life together with them.

Questions we hold, by many more:

  • What do our children need from us to develop themselves following their own paths in their own pace?
  • How can we let them be ‘just as you are’ and be the example ourselves, loving ourselves unconditionally?
  • How can we stay true to ourselves and our children in a world where parenting is mainly seen as a job to raise children in a predefined direction of ‘a good adult’ by using praise for good behaviour and punishment for bad behaviour.
  • How can we live closer to our hearts and our natural rhythm again, together with our children, caring for our planet earth.

Design of the circles

  • Five offline or online encounters with a circle of 4-6 caregivers (teachers, aunts and uncles are also welcome)
  • Each gathering is based on one of the elements earth, air, fire, water and love, and starts with a sharing of discoveries from the Pure Child Project.
  • We check-in, use exercises to be fully present, connect with our own experiences, questions and the gifts of our children, share, hold space, experience the magic, and dive deeper into one case that resonates for all. We learn how to hold space by holding space for each other, a competence very valuable in guiding children.

Ik vond de cirkel heel bijzonder. De elementen hielpen me om tot de kern te gaan van wat ouderschap voor mij betekent: er zijn voor je kind. En dat is zo simpel en tegelijkertijd zo ongelofelijk moeilijk. Voor elke ouder, we proberen het allemaal goed te doen. De cirkel verbindt ons in deze zoektocht. Jouw vraag is mijn vraag en jouw tips inspireren mij. En zo geeft de cirkel ruimte om te ontspannen in wat er is. Bij het loslaten van de verwachting hoe het zou moeten zijn, ontstaat plots toch de ontwikkeling. Lieve Saskia, dank je wel!‘ – Gwendy

‘De avonden waren voor mij een mooie combinatie van een prachtige plek bij jullie in de boomgaard (stil en donker, uitnodigend), de warmte en gloed van het vuur, de thema‚Äôs, de lekkere warme thee en last but not least: lieve mensen.’ – Nynke

Join? Meedoen?
Looking forward to meet likeminded parents on their journey, get inspired by the elements of nature, by the stories and experiences of the other parents, learn how to hold space, and deepen the questions we encounter in daily life.
