Workshops, Retreats, and Classes


6 Wednesday Evenings on ZOOM
Leading Into the New Year

In these trying times, where fear and anxiety are rampant and we struggle to not get caught up in anger or despair, the word "trust" may not initially seem to resonate.

And yet, only when we can sink into the safety and openness of trusting relationships (with Self and Other) can we find our equilibrium, reclaiming a sense of peace and perhaps even happiness.

Join us in exploring our mental and somatic patterns of connection and protection while discovering the path to deepened trust.

We will  share exercises and experiences in dissolving mistrust and building renewed trust. We will deepen connections with like-minded others who are also practicing trust-building. You will learn somatic skills you can use again and again to anchor your awareness in trust.

We start Nov 3, 2021. Join us from  6:30 - 8:30pm EST. Fee: $345. 


November 5-6, 2021
In-Person Retreat in 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.



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

January - May, 2022

After deep reflection, we have decided after all to offer a hybrid Learning Group experience for 2022. Our immersion into Family Constellation work will include 2 in-person weekend Intensives and 3 full-day Zoom workshops. We welcome participants of all experience levels to join our circle for a transformative learning experience.

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.

January 28 – 30, 2022 (In-Person)

April 9, 2022
May 20 – 22, 2022 (In-Person)


Jan 28-30, Amherst, Mass

This special weekend at SaMa Sanctuary which kicks off our 5-month Learning Group, is also open to non-Learning Group members on a space-available basis.

Connecting to your mother and fathers' lineages, you discover your family's gifts and burdens. You will learn how belonging, entanglements, blind loyalties, and transgenerational transmission impact you today. You will learn how these family burdens can be lifted.

No matter what you find in your lineage, when you truly see and feel what your ancestors experienced, you can stand firmly and with pride on their shoulders. Embodying your lineage with all its gifts, strength, wounds, and unfinished dreams, you will find that you are becoming whole and strong in Self.  Fee: $475

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.
