Constellation Wednesdays

New developments in our field

We invite you to join us as experienced facilitators share exciting new edges and developments in the discipline of Systemic Constellations.

Our field is growing in leaps and bounds, and we have learned much in the collective practice and exploration of this powerful work.

We hope that in the sharing lives will be enriched and the collective knowledge will evolve this work even further. This exchange of knowledge and experience traditionally has occurred at our NASC conferences.  Our most recent one was this past November. However, there were many invited presenters, who were not able to deliver their presentations due to Covid circumstances. It was these unfortunate circumstances, which have inspired the creation of this forum.

We begin with 3 meetings set for Wednesday evenings, 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm EST.

Dates:

6.29.2022

7.13.2022

7.27.2022

Where:    Zoom

Constellation Wednesdays are hosted by Samvedam Randles, Dipl. Psych. LMHC at the Inner Arts Institute, INC.

Cost:    There is no fee for these events.

A suggested donation of $ 15 would be welcome to cover costs.

Seeing with Your Heart for Love and Relationships
by Dan Cohen, Phd & Emily Blefeld, LICSW

Do you wish to open your heart to sensual, sacred, and soulful love and free yourself from the patterns that destroy intimate, fulfilling relationships?

Or are you a facilitator, practitioner, or therapist who is interested in learning quick, simple exercises to support your clients with achieving breakthroughs in seemingly insoluble conflicts or disturbing dynamics that undermine close relationships?

Join Dan Cohen and Emily Blefeld to see with your heart what the body, mind, and soul remember and awaken greater passion, pleasure and shared purpose in love relationships. Human beings swim in an ocean of consciousness that absorbs and remembers everything. Heartbreaks, tragedies and abandonments from generations long ago may leave an invisible imprint that remains active inside our bodies.
A couple’s relationship is like two deep water waves coming together. At the peak, they amplify magically. At the trough, they descend into painful conflict, often mirroring hidden patterns embedded in each partner’s family of origin. Remnants of unresolved wounds passed down by parents, grandparents, or even great-grandparents resurface disguised as feelings of loneliness and rejection, self-sabotaging behaviors, sexual shame, or the fear of intimacy.
Seeing with Your Heart Constellations dive beyond the immediate stories and emotions to literally shift these wave patterns, helping people to open their hearts to love and free themselves to create intimate, erotic and nourishing partnerships.

Dan and Emily have presented their life-changing Constellations in workshops and trainings throughout the world. Through individual constellations and experiential exercises, participants will learn key tools to see with your heart, illuminate entanglements at their origin, and call in ancestors and spirit guides to release the block to love while resourcing intentions.

Attend this circle to experience the ancient magic of seeing with your heart.

Beyond the Ancestral Field
Samvedam Randles, Dipl. Psych., LMHC

All unintegrated history leaves its traces in the matrix of our cultures, families and lives. The challenge with the past is that it often is not past but lives on through symptoms that repeat tendencies and return the past into the presence. A war that happened years ago ripples through many generations and unconsciously we uphold these patterns. What we cannot include within ourselves we project out onto "the other", which feeds a sense of separation. It takes courage to explore our part in this. It takes vulnerability to own it and include all human tendencies.

Are we ready?

We live in a time where we have to address more than just our personal and our family systems. How do we heal the divided collective in which we now find ourselves? How do we open ourselves to the fields beyond ancestry and collective humanity and re-connect to our participation with earth and universal forces?

Constellation work is uniquely qualified to make the larger fields visible. It highlights the absence/darkness that needs integration before we can find our way back into harmonious connection. How do we modify our work to step into collective healing? How do we resource our field to withstand the high voltage intensity of collective trauma?

In this workshop, Samvedam introduces an approach that combines shamanic ways of healing, constellation work and Thomas Huebl’s approach of the Collective Trauma Integration Process (CTPI).

After a presentation, we will move experientially into the larger fields. There we can discover how we might serve in the healing of our planet.

Honoring ‘Yes’ and ‘No’
When Resistance is an Expression of Our Life Force

By Leslie Nipps

Ultimately, constellations seek to serve to permit the free flow of love again. Along the way, however, life’s obstacles also need to be acknowledged and included. In constellations work, we may have had the experience of saying no to something that on the surface seems good; or we may have had a client or representative refuse forward movement. This is what we usually call “resistance.” When that happens, we get curious and ask – what have we missed? What needs to be honored and given a place?

In constellations, we welcome both the movement toward life and love, and the need to state clear no’s: no to violence, exclusion, and to injustice, for instance. Ultimately, we want to find our way back to our full-hearted yes to life, completely as it is, while we still honor our much-valued boundaries. Let’s honor our yes and our no together.

In this workshop, we’ll learn more about the important function of resistance in constellations, and how, as facilitators, to have a friendly and purposeful relationship with it when it arises. We will also do constellations to appreciate our own resistance, so that we can move in a strong way towards what life is calling us to.
