“It often seems as if there were an impersonal karma within a family, which passes on from parents to children. It has always seemed to me that I had to … complete, or perhaps continue, things which previous ages left unfinished.”

—Carl Jung

Our Open Family Constellation workshops offer opportunities to explore personal or work-related issues in the safety of a healing circle.  Anxiety, fear, depression, financial woes, and unhappy relationships can all be forms of an unconscious inheritance from our family of origin.

Are certain difficult themes repeating in your life?  This work will show you why. No prior experience necessary.

Since ancient times, human beings have used the breath to open to inner worlds and connect with spiritual dimensions. Consciously directing the breath clears “stuck” physical and emotional patterns. Many clients are surprised by how alive and joyful this can feel! You will:

• Learn some basic breathing techniques
• Experience a group breathwork session
• Get an understanding of your personal breathing patterns
• Use breath to calm and center yourself
• Anchor more joy into your body

Samvedam has facilitated breathwork since 1993 and served as a trainer for the International Breathwork Institute.

What is the Constellation Learning Group? It is a deep immersion and basic training in the profound healing possibilities that Family Constellations provide. This learning experience will offer you an opportunity for a supportive learning community as you see and feel your perspective and experiences transform in your life.

The group that begins in Oct. 2019 meets in Brattleboro, VT. The  2020 group meets in the Boston area.

This training is for anyone who wants in-depth practice and understanding of Constellation work. Space is limited.  Forty (40) CEUs may be  available for Licensed Mental Health Professionals.

Are you feeling called to become a facilitator for constellation work or would like to find ways to include this tool in your work?  We now offer a facilitator training track in our Constellation Learning Group, and you may apply to be one of our trainees.

In order to qualify, you need to have at least one and preferably two years of intensive study under your belt and be ready to focus on moving in the morphic field with your own integrity.

Trainees do less personal work and instead become more involved in serving the group as a vehicle for growth and transformation. An interview with one of our team will assist you in determining if our program is a good fit for you.


November 23-24, 2019

Every group—be it a team, department or company—organizes around structures, processes and relationships to produce predictable outcomes. In fact, every organization is perfectly designed to create exactly the outcomes it is already getting. Constellations can  influence these self-organizing dynamics to create better outcomes and work environments where people thrive.

In the course of a constellation, participants get a direct experience in clear terms of the prevailing perceptions (such as trust/mistrust), the dominant concerns (such as lack of reciprocity), and where individuals and groups direct their attention.

Registration: $400. This workshop is included for members of the Expanded Constellation Learning Group or Facilitator Training Group.


May 16-17, 2020

The body is our friend. It is much wiser than we. In this masterclass, you learn to listen to its voice. Symptoms and illnesses, whether physical or mental, bring messages which show the real cause in the background, for example personal trauma, trans-generational trauma in the family system or collective burdens that have been affecting the society.

Participants will follow the messages of symptoms and diseases, find the healing path, and integrate personal/collective trauma in the healing process. Dr. Rauscher will introduce the innovative healing method Healing Voices, which deepen the healing experience in the constellation in a powerful way.

Registration: $450.  This workshop is included for members of the Expanded Constellation Learning Group or Facilitator Training Group.


April 14-23, 2020 (10 days)

The 2020 Inner Light Spiritual Retreat to Peru is a time to step away from our lives to realign with our soul. On such a journey, the mind, body, spirit, and emotions click back into higher alignment. We change our lens of perception and find a much larger view of who we are and why we are here.

The sacred valley and mountains of the Peruvian Andes provide the ideal environment for our expansion. This is an inner as well as an outer journey.  Within and without become synchronized.

We will be guided by local shamans who offer us ceremonies and healing sessions that are grounded in ancient tradition. And we will integrate these experiences with breathwork, family constellations, and meditation, spending 2–3 hours each day in sacred practices. Join us for the trip of a lifetime.
