So many of us have experienced the pain of addiction in ourselves, or stood by helplessly as the pattern unfolded in a loved one. Be it a drug or alcohol addiction or any form of self destructive behavior, these symptoms are difficult to change without understanding the trauma or pain that they mask.

Join us in applying constellation work to addictive patterns, with special guest Rasada Goldblatt. Rasada has 15 years of working in the Systems field, as well as extensive experience in working with addiction in a variety of environments including rehab centers. He will share how to effectively use constellation work in service of people struggling with addiction.

The focus of this workshop is on increasing the capacity to see and feel the pain behind the symptom, while acknowledging the intelligence of the addictive behaviour that protects the pain. This creates space to remove the stigma and support the release of addictive behaviour in the addict as well as the family members.
