“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller
Each and every one of us loves in our own unique way. For most of us, we tend to excel in some areas and struggle in others.
Perhaps you’re great at giving love and are less comfortable receiving. Or you receive love easily, but mysteriously lose interest in people after an early phase of excitement. Maybe the particular way you act in relationships is something you’ve always done, or maybe you’ve gotten burned and tried to reinvent yourself.
Regardless of how you act or react in relationship today, one thing is clear: everyone carries a particular template for how we give and receive love. It’s a map that guides all the patterns we fall into when we’re seeking partnership, getting into relationships and maintaining relationships.
Whether you’re a giver, receiver, the provider, the strong one, or the distant one: being or having ‘a type’ isn’t necessarily the problem. The problem is when we feel stuck in patterns that put us through familiar cycles of feeling disappointed, hurt, unloved, lonely, distant, disconnected and more.
On Saturday January 26th, we will be engaging in a powerful and experiential healing process devoted to rewriting your template and putting unhealthy or unwanted relationship patterns to rest.
Family Constellations for a Healthier Connection With Love
Using Family Constellations, a groundbreaking healing modality, this workshop will hone in on an often overlooked or misunderstood aspect of the human experience: the effect your family of origin has on your present day life.
The power of this approach is in its ability to simplify what often feels like a complex or confusing set of issues. Instead of digging into a lifetime of stories of let downs, break ups and/or grief, this process helps you surface what lives at the core of the patterns you’re seeing in your love life.
Once uncovered, the work aims to provide you with meaningful and lasting tools to heal that can have far reaching effects outside of the workshop.
Family Constellations is supported by two decades of Epigenetic research which has repeatedly shown that what your parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents experienced in life has a major impact on how you move and act in the world today. By considering your relationship to family and the experiences of past generations in your understanding of a present day challenge, you’re given an extraordinary opportunity to find solutions that might never have been considered previously.
What Happens in the Workshop?
Family Constellations is an eyes-open, experiential approach, in which fellow participants will be asked to stand and represent relevant aspects of your life. Depending on the issue you’re experiencing, representatives may be chosen for your partner, an ex, or other people in your life or family. As these individuals stand in representation, they will be gently guided to tap into an awareness that allows them to become a mirror that reflects back the dynamics you’re exploring.
At first, the accuracy of these maps or constellations may be surprising. But as we progress through the workshop, we’ll go beyond creating visual representations of your life and move towards how you can free yourself from the entanglements that are wrapped around your potential to receive and experience love in the way you want.
Some of the Intentions of This Workshop:
Engage in a process of connecting with consciousness that is beyond the ordinary
Uncover barriers that are entangled around love, relationship and your family system so that they may be seen and healed in conscious awareness
Break the unconscious patterns that pull you toward recreating echoes of the past in your present day life
Offer practical steps to move forward with strength to make meaningful and positive shifts in your life outside of the workshop
A note: Every person will experience tapping into different family systems and representing for each other in the workshop. Due to the format and time frame, some people may not be able to take on the role of the client and have a personal Family Constellation. However, for the vast majority of people that engage in this work, the experience of representing for others is as personally significant as being the client. We are all connected, and it’s the process of representation that supports the intentions you bring to the workshop. There will also be group exercises that will ensure everyone is receiving personal insight specific to their experience.
*This class is limited to 12 people in order to provide as much individual support as possible.
