A Journey to Heal Your Childhood Wounds and Find Joy

10 Live Sessions with Svarup – Inner Child Therapist

Start Date: 20th February 2022

We are offering a free live zoom masterclass with Svarup in January.

Build awareness, meet your needs, and begin to heal the little-you.

At Kannagara we have put together a Online Live Childhood Deconditioning Training with 10 LIVE sessions with Svarup Premartha de Koning.

Join us to meet your inner child, heal your childhood wounds, and break out of your conditioning.

The fact is that most of us still carry the past inside, in the form of body-mind pain. The strategies we developed in childhood to cope with the family situation still run our lives, often with damaging consequences. For example, we are unable to live fully in the present because the mind keeps pulling us back, as we have not completed our past. It still hangs around us as a big burden.

Some of our deepest wounds are carried by the child within. These wounds create tensions, blockages, or contractions within our hearts, minds, and bodies. And when we’re contracted, we become trapped in a tightly-bound separate self, also known as the ego.

Some examples of childhood wounding include::

  • Being hit or smacked by your parents/grandparents

  • Having an emotionally unavailable parent who withholds affection

  • Being the child of divorce

  • Being given inappropriate or burdensome responsibilities (such as caring for your parents)

  • Not being fed or provided a safe place to live from your parents

  • Abandonment

  • Emotional neglect, i.e., not being nurtured, encouraged, or supported

  • Being deliberately called names or verbally insulted

  • Denigration of your personality

  • Excessive demands

  • Humiliation

  • Car accidents, or other spontaneous traumatic events

As a result:

  • We don’t feel good with ourselves

  • We cannot enjoy healthy intimate relationships

  • We may have problems with authority

  • We cannot be fully alive or creative

Have you ever been in a situation where you are triggered and find yourself behaving like a six-year-old? Is there something unresolved with your mother / father or your family?

Do you experience disconnection or feeling demotivated in your daily life?

Is your past getting in the way of creating and maintaining relationships with others and yourself?

Do you struggle with shame, self – acceptance and self – love?Do you struggle to set boundaries and prioritize yourself?

Are you struggling with mental / emotional issues? Do you have unmet needs as a child? Did you grow up in a dysfunctional family system?

We are offering a free live zoom masterclass with Svarup in January.


Inner Child work has to start with YOU showing up for little you. It starts with protecting, meeting the needs, validating the feelings of and honouring the boundaries of the child within. We may have found ourselves in dysfunctional family systems and experienced shame and betrayal…the journey to heal starts with YOU.

How do we even begin this?

Join this Childhood Deconditioning Course with Svarup over 10 LIVE sessions. This course will walk you step by step on your journey with a trained Primal Therapist and a loving supportive container.

Inside this live course we go back to the past, particularly the first seven years of life, bringing clarity to the conditioning we received and light to shine on old wounds carried from that time. This training teaches you to understand, transform and heal childhood wounds and conditioning.

During this process, you will be gently and lovingly guided, through a 10-session journey backwards in time, through each one of the developmental stages of childhood.

These ten Childhood Deconditioning sessions will help you to understand and acknowledge how your family environment and the rules and roles not only imposed on you by your family but also by society have influenced and conditioned your personality and adult life. You will be guided to explore the issues from your childhood, to express and release old emotions and much, much more.

By healing these deep wounds through love and understanding, you will move towards your true self and towards an authentic joyful way of living.

Some of the benefits of doing inner child work include:

  • Improved quality of life

  • Reduced symptoms of depressions

  • Reduced anxiety

  • Improved responses that are proportionate to the situation

  • Improved functioning

  • Better interpersonal relationships

  • Improved vitality

  • Returned sense of child-like wonder

  • Improved emotional regulation and maturity

  • Greater authenticity and whole-person behaviour

  • Understand The Inner Child & The Inner Angst

  • Break Free From Emotional Blocks

  • Find The Root Cause Of Your Issues

  • Understand The First Point of Pain, Your Energetic Vibration, Authority & Your Inner Child

  • How each stage of childhood gets repressed or distorted by issues

  • How these unresolved issues affect our capacity as adults to fully live and enjoy our lives

  • Specific simple techniques and tools to contact the issues and HEAL the wounds

  • Transform the energy that is blocked to life affirmative energy

We are offering a free live zoom masterclass with Svarup in January.


Session 1: The meeting of adult and child

You will learn to recognize and connect different parts of your inner world

  • The Child, which represents your unresolved emotions, but also your energy, and your natural qualities
  • The Adult, who has the capacity to navigate the world and manifest the life you want to live
  • The Internalized parents, who are the sum of the messages (spoken and unspoken) you received from the parents, and what you absorbed from their unconscious in your childhood

As the Adult, you will be led through a regression journey to see the parents of the past and then meet and interact with the child-you

Session 2: Uncovering the Superego: the voices of the Internalized Parents

You will learn more about the impact of the Superego (the parental voices) on the child you.

  • As the Adult, you will be invited to act out those voices
  • As the child, you will be able to experience how these voices took deep roots in your unconscious and made you disconnect from vital parts of yourself

The main method used here will be Gestalt

Session 3: The natural child and the roles for the parents

You will experience the roles you took as a child within your family, with the intent of making the parents happy and fill in whatever void they might have felt in their lives

  • As the Adult, you will be invited to recognize and value the natural qualities you brought with you in this life
  • As the child, you will recognize how stress and effort to fit in have replaced the sharing of those natural qualities and learn to flower and share them again, feeling seen and appreciated for who you really are

The techniques used here are Gestalt and Essence work

Session 4: The sensuous child

You will learn about the natural flow of sensuousness, curiosity and passion that happen during the age period between 3 and 6

  • As the Adult, you will recognize where the flow of these qualities is blocked and withheld in your body
  • As the child, you will be supported to allow these qualities to stream through your body

The method used here will be Neo-Reichian bodywork

Session 5: Creating Healthy boundaries for the Child

In this session we will explore the theme of boundaries in all their dimensions: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, and how they develop around the age of 1 1/2 to 3

  • As the Adult, you will gain a deeper understanding of how your boundaries were invaded during childhood
  • As the child, you will regain a sense of your own space, and the joy to move freely within a territory that feels safe

Here we are going to use a colorful method of energy work

Sessions 6 and 7: Releasing and Transforming the unexpressed emotions of the Child

These two sessions are dedicated to completion with the figures of the internalized parents, mother and father.

  • As the Adult, you will speak up for the child in you, and allow your body to release any unresolved negative emotion from the past that may still cause reactiveness or collapse in your present life
  • As the child, you will feel unburdened and ready to receive the real gifts your parents have given you

Here the main technique will be emotional release

Session 8: The Baby Child: Healing Rejection and Rediscovering Trust

This session is dedicated to the younger child in you, from birth until 1 ½. It addresses the sensitive issue of need, the feeling of abandonment and how these unresolved themes affect us around relationship, love, merging and trust

  • As the Adult, you will learn to understand the strategies you developed to protect yourself from these early wounds
  • As the child, you will find back in your heart that feeling of connectedness and trust that makes you relax in the arms of existence

The techniques used here are a mix of regression journey and the original Primal work of Janov

Session 9: Rebirth

This session addresses the time of birth. We will focus on rebirth rather than reliving the possible traumas around the “first birth”, mainly by recovering the deep sense that we wanted to come to this earth and that there is a deep longing inside each one of us to live a full and meaningful life

  • As the Adult, you will be supported to remember that longing
  • As a child, you will feel welcomed and supported through the journey, from conception to birth, learning to trust your impulse to come out

Here we are going to use simple breath techniques and a colorful regression journey to the origins of your life

Session 10 - Integration

This session is dedicated to integration, bringing all the “parts” together, feeling whole again and moving back into life with all the qualities you rediscovered

We are offering a free live zoom masterclass with Svarup in January.

” I am about to finish a one month Kannagara Kick Start programme led by lovely Bhavisha Gheewala. It is a programme that focuses on developing four key areas of ourselves: mind, body, heart and soul.

I feel privileged to be part of the first Kannagara tribe in Kampala, it is a life changing experience with an amazing bunch of people, I learned how to break my limiting beliefs that my mind constructed over the years and made a commitment to serve humanity rather than polluting the world with negativity.

If we all learned how to clear negativity in our lives, if we had tools to help us to be the best versions of ourselves, the world would be a paradise. “

Rukmini Bonthala

” Hi Friends. I just wanted to share this amazing program that i’m doing right now. It’s a self development program that focuses on mental, physical, emotional and spiritual strengthening.

Just within the past 2 weeks, its been life changing for me in getting clear on my vision and purpose in life, letting go of my limiting beliefs that were holding me back from taking action. I have been more purposefully productive in the last 2 weeks than i can ever think of before. I’ve been able to accomplish so many big and small goals that i would usually set up for myself but either get distracted or put it off till later but not anymore. I take action and finish what i set out to do.

Other than the goals, its been really enabling me to stay positive each and every day regardless of my external circumstances and this has had a positive impact on my relationships as well. This program is 4 weeks long and i have 2 more weeks to go but so far, WOW the transformations are amazing for most of us taking part in the program.

I wanted to share this today since the next program is taking place again in May and if you are in Uganda, and have a goal in life, and need the motivation/energy to take action so you can actually live your life the way you want it and not just dream it, don’t loose this opportunity. “

Flouri Bouillot

” Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me this chance to transform myself and live out my vision and dream that I have been longing for!

After this powerful and magical journey I can declare that “I am confident, I respect who I am, I shine, I transform myself and I empower others: I am a healer”.

My journey has just started with Kannagara and I feel so confident and excited about my new path. Please keep empowering the souls who crave for transformation! “

Suwilanji Ngambi

” Kannagara for me was an eye-opener.

I signed up for the retreat because I have been doing some soul searching of my own, I got a new job and was absolutely terrified of my new role for fear of failure. I wasn’t really sure what I would gain out of it but I made a commitment to do everything that was in the program.

What has changed for me is I am more confident in myself and not just showing people on the outside as I used to. I am learning to be not so hard on myself and remind myself that its ok to be different. The Kannagara experience was not only about working on me but the people that were there with me were amazing, we got to connect in such a short period of time being honest with each other and discovering that I am not alone. It felt like we were family straight after day 1.

I have learnt to see the world differently and discovered that it is bigger than what goes on in my head. There’s a certain level of calmness I feel. I have a very short temper but now its much easier for me to try and rationalize situations before reacting and I love and appreciate myself a lot better. I can clearly see what impact good energy has around people I care about.

I would highly recommend Kannagara. It has helped me take steps to self-discovery, what integrity can do for you, the benefits of doing something in totality, and how amazing it feels when you are at peace with yourself. I handle my stressful situations a lot better than before I went to the retreat and I am grateful for the experience! “

Agnes Ammeux

” I had individual coaching sessions with Bhavi for 3 months, a few months after doing the Kannagara kick start programme. While Kannagara kick start programme helped me to understand myself better and to create links with like-minded people, individual coaching sessions helped me to go deeper and allowed me to step back and look at my emotions from a different perspective.

Before starting the individual coaching sessions, I was thinking I did not need help and it was my turn to continue on my personal path… It is true but it is much easier with a coach.

No matter how much you meditate, how much you’re journalling, how much you’re working on your own personal development, the individual coaching sessions definitely helped me to clear the emotions of the previous 2 weeks and to start the coming week lighter. Highly recommended to boost your personal development. “

Randeep Singh – India

” I was blessed to connect with Bhavi with a beautiful heart.

I did the course with her and we had group members from UK, Uganda, Australia and different parts of the world. It was great to connect with everyone. Most importantly the environment that was created to interact with each other and share our thoughts was safe and secure.

The learning s which I took from the session of limiting beliefs was not to be too hard on myself which helped me during the lockdown days and pandemic.

Another session on inner child was my favourite part. We got to take a road back to childhood and recall what our dreams were and to believe in them once again. It helped me to start moving towards and it was a beautiful experience. “

Ife Piankhi

” Kannagara is a powerful process. I thought I was done but really it was just the beginning for me.

Doing the self assessment questionnaire that identified my limiting beliefs, being coached and being a coach was intense, but I was happy for the challenge.

Its so easy to think we are OK but Kannagara made me look at all my layers. Bhavi thank you – your groove is deep! It seems effortless but it’s deep work. Thank you. “

Alick Mitchell

” Thank you Bhavi. This all came along to me poignantly at the right time, it runs alongside the corona like surfing a wave into the present.

I appreciate your feedback and loving energy. I can feel the soft beauty of your heart in your presence. I stayed up at night for the sessions as I am in Australia. I loved the diversity of the cultures involved and it has been a great compliment to my life. I love what you and Indra put together!

I hold a special place for you even if it has been over zoom calls. Have a wonderful day. “

Alagappan Satthappan

” Hi friends,

This is Alagappan and I would like to share my experience with Kannagara and specifically the Gibberish meditation.

I have been practising the meditation and it has been fun and deep at the same time. It felt good as I usually only do the traditional meditations, and I have not been motivated to meditate.

This was a fun practise and I am grateful to the facilitators to introduce this to me! I have witnessed my silence get deeper from the method you brought to me. “
