TENDING OUR ROOTS: A CONSTELLATION WEEKEND

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.

SINKING INTO TRUST: A SIX-WEEK GROUP JOURNEY

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 Jan 26, 2022. Join us from  6:30 - 8:30pm EST. Fee: $345.

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.

THE CONSTELLATION LEARNING GROUP ~ 2022

NEW DATES & HYBRID FORMAT!

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.

FAMILY CONSTELLATION IN-PERSON INTENSIVE

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

DISSOLVING PAINFUL BONDS ~ WITH SAMVEDAM RANDLES

close up of chain link

February 19, 10 am – 4.30 pm

Use and misuse of power are ever present themes in our lives and it is not easy to separate these two.

What happens in our relations when we get hurt? And what happens when we are the one who is doing the hurting?

Are you struggling with such a dynamic and would like help and further understanding? Most of us have been on the receiving and giving end of this equation and have experienced its painful aftermath. What is this powerful bond that keeps us connected to the ones who have hurt us/ been hurt by us?

In constellation work we call this the victim/perpetrator dynamic. It often is found in transgenerational trauma transmission, which means that what you are experiencing within your nervous system may not even be your own trauma but that of an ancestor who had no path to clearing it. What leads to a clearing within both parties, victim and perpetrator? What allows love to flow again? Join us on ZOOM to explore.

FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS & ADDICTION SERIES ~ FULL

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.
