Feeding the Hungry Ghost: The Hard Work Miracle of Understanding Our Addictions

Fall 2021
4 Saturdays 10am – 4:30pm EST

There are few who walk in this life that have not been touched by addiction, our own or another’s. Often, it is in our close circle of family or community. Often, there is pain involved.

It takes a brave and courageous traveler to venture into this world. Addiction is usually cloaked in unconsciousness and shrouded in shame and denial.

Would you like to learn about how addiction may serve, protect, or keep you distracted from being fully present in this moment?

We will look deeper into what drives our need to over-drink, over-eat, over-work, smoke, and get caught in compulsive gaming, sex, etc. Once we understand how these patterns serve us, we may find possibility for movement and change.


Advanced Learning and Facilitator Training Circle

Fall 2021
4 Fridays 9am – 12 noon EST

Experienced facilitators make Family Constellations look easy. But new facilitators experience bumps, questions and “no-goes." This Zoom group is for aspiring facilitators with a strong foundation in constellation work, and for those already facilitating  constellations.

Participants will hone facilitation skills and instincts in a supportive circle of peers. We will address questions, practice facilitation, and provide guidance on specific challenges.

2021 Facilitator Training Dates:
September 24, 2021
October 29, 2021
November 12, 2021
• Nov 12th optional afternoon, 'Tools for Facilitators'

November 5-6, 2021 (Amherst, MA)

Covid permitting, we hope to gather in person in a small circle to dive deeply into Constellation healing work. We welcome any issue that is emerging, be it in your body, relationships or the larger world. We will hold it in our circle of shared presence with care and non-judgment.

Stepping into the Systemic fields to explore what is happening in the unconscious will give us insights into what is needed to heal.

Our ancestry lives in us. Every ancestor, once integrated in our life, is an open channel to the light. Those that are forgotten, hidden, or despised continue to throw their shadows over us in order to be seen and remembered.

Family Constellations, Nature Constellations, and Medicine Wheel Constellations all help us to integrate what is ready to move.  Let us look together!

Advanced registration is required. Time: 9:30 – 5:00.  Fee: $390



January - June, 2022

We are excited to offer another deep dive into Constellation work in the Zoom format. Join a community of like-minded souls for six weekend workshops and five two-hour group integration sessions. We welcome participants of all experience levels.

Come journey into your mother’s and father’s lineages to discover their gifts and burdens. Glean insights into the impact of addictions, victim/ perpetrator dynamics, and unusual fates like adoption or immigration.

This courageous work can be deeply rewarding. In the depth of these currents, we often discover tremendous resilience, love and loyalty.

We meet from 10am to 4:30pm with 1.5 hours for lunch.
