Family Constellation : Ancestral Healing WEEKEND RESIDENTIAL


Price:

EUR345.00

Date: June 22, 2018

This deeply healing workshop explores and uncovers how the limitations we experience with our health, finances and success in life may be inherited from the lives of our ancestors. Unconscious entanglements can develop between family members and ancestors in an effort to heal and restore balance and a flow of love to the family soul. Based on the work of Bert Hellinger, the process happens in a group format where the facilitator works with an issue by setting up representatives for the family entanglements and working with the dynamics that show up. The workshop is designed to serve individuals desiring to seek resolutions of persistent life issues, as well as therapists seeking to discover new ways of working with clients. Everyone who participates (and their families) stands to benefit from the work.  All participants will have their family constellation done.

What is Family Constellation Work?

There is a presence of a family conscience which guards the integrity of the family soul. Hidden orders support the flow of systemic energy in service of belonging and bonding. In families, this energy is love. Then the orders of belonging are disrupted, so is the flow of love. When this happens, family members come under systemic pressure to restore balance. Unconscious entanglements then develop between family members and their ancestors in an effort to heal the family soul. These entanglements can then manifest as personal, financial or professional limitations as well as dis-ease. This format helps uncover the truth behind these loyalties and strives to find re-solutions to bring balance to the flow of love in the system. This allows for the flow of life to be restored to the living members of the family which is the foundation to achieving health, wealth, and success in all aspects of life.

What is the Format?

The work is done in a group format where the participants begin by sitting in circle and share intentions for the day.  There are three levels of participants in the work: client, representative and witness.   The client, chosen on the day, is the individual who has their family system set up to be worked.  Representatives are participants who stand in the field for members of the family or issues.  Witnesses remain seated in the circle.  The way Julie facilitates, all levels of participation benefit fully from the day.

In this group format, the issue is set up in the field using representatives as family members, states of being, or issues.  The facilitator works with the group using words, movements and representatives to first identify the present state of family dynamic as it relates to the issue.  From this place, by acknowledging what is, including those who were excluded and restoring the balance of the flow of love from the elders to those in the current generation, entanglements can be released and suffering is transformed to love.  The facilitator seeks re-solution to the issue moving the system into strength from where it was previously weak.  The constellation is then brought into order by positioning representatives in the appropriate positions in their family system.

How much family history is needed to participate?

There is no requirement for the amount of family history that needs to be known in order to participate.  In fact, the less one knows about their family history, the more likely there are to be entanglements present.  This work is wonderful at uncovering these mysteries.  Knowing the family history can give indications of what particular pattern may be at play within the family system, which can be worked with directly in the field.

What Does it Treat?

Most issues have an ancestral origin, independent of how it may manifest: physical, emotional, financial, energetic, spiritual etc.  This format is very effective with: Emotional Issues, Dis-ease, Physical Pain, Relationship Problems, Financial Distress, Career and Business Troubles and any persistent issues unresponsive to other treatments.

Mindfulness Meditation WEEKEND RESIDENTIAL


Price:

EUR345.00

Date: July 13, 2018

Mindfulness is the practice of moment to moment non judgemental awareness. It is a particular way of paying attention to what’s happening in our bodies, hearts and minds, and in the world around us with friendliness, interest and curiosity. Based on ancient Buddhist teachings, today the wisdom of mindfulness can be applied to enrich and enliven all aspects of our lives, and to all ages.  It is the art of paying attention and engaging with our lives in meaningful, compassionate and non-judgmental ways. Its practice and training develops our innate capacity to find peace and contentment in a busy, ever changing world. It teaches how to pay attention, be more present and respond rather than react to life. In learning to live more fully in the present moment we cultivate greater attention, concentration and clarity of mind. We also develop beautiful qualities of heart such as peace, contentment and appreciation.  The art of mindfulness supports us in developing both self awareness and compassion. We learn to respond rather than react to the challenges of our lives. Mindfulness is an embodied and empowering practice of reconnecting to our own innate resources and wisdom.

This weekend will draw from the teachings of western insight meditation, the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and the embodied mindful movement practice of Open floor.

Participants will be guided through formal practices of sitting, walking and movement meditation. With the support of silence, throughout the weekend you are invited to bring an attentive and friendly wakefulness to each moment of your experience, both on and off the cushion. No previous experience is required, just bring a curiosity snd willingness to taste and explore the practice. There will be opportunity throughout for questions, reflection and enquiry with Paula.

Discover techniques that will help you find greater focus, efficiency and precision in what you do. When your attention is steady, your mind is also. Learn effective relaxation and meditative practices that will support your ability to be more present, more awake. Some of the benefits of these simple practices help bring about deeper connection with others, increased enjoyment in the wonder and richness of life and a renewed openness to the spiritual dimension of life. Learn how mindfulness helps us become more aware that kindness, empathy and joy are available within our own being.

The Yoga of Vocal Sound WEEKEND RESIDENTIAL


Price:

EUR295.00

Date: August 3, 2018

Our essential blissful nature is vibration as expressed through pure consciousness, heart-centred love and, at a practical level, by the harmonious sounds of the human voice. The greatest use of the voice is to re-tune ourselves in body, mind and above all, spirit. This weekend will introduce you to various kinds of therapeutic vocal and movement practices, which are designed to retune the subtle energy centres, creating a wholeness and well-being on all levels. You will learn vocal toning practices, East and West, that focus on transformation of the chakras, the energy centres that comprise our psychological attributes such as rootedness, creative flow, empowerment, compassion, communication, intuition, love and connection to the divine. The toning practices allow for clearing and balancing of any disturbances that can be underlying causes for physical & emotional issues. The sound work will be complemented with simple Tai Chi like movements that encourage and direct the therapeutic sounds. Participants will be given a taste of tuning forks as a centering tool. Along the way chants of different traditions will be interspersed with mainstream vocal practices. To integrate the sound work, there will be a meditative practice allowing for deep contemplation and inner connection. The practices learned in this weekend can help reduce stress, balance emotions, bring self empowerment, reduce physical pain, and transform a limited self into an unlimited self, empowered and fully present to reach your fullest expression in life. Come simply for the therapeutic effects and to learn take home techniques to practice on a daily basis.

James D’Angelo, PhD, has been leading his Soundspirit courses in the UK, Europe and USA since 1994 and is considered a leading authority on different forms of sound healing. He is an American musician/composer/educator who has lived in England for 30 years, developed his therapeutic sound workshops in 1994 in London. These workshops are based on the conscious use of the voice evolved through his life in music, his studies in self-actualization via Indian Advaita spiritual tradition, his participation in Sufu sacred movements and his practice of Reiki healing. He has published a number of articles within the field and has been an invited presenter at major sound healing conferences in the UK and USA. A regular contributor to Caduceus Magazine, James is an accomplished musician and composer whose complete sacred choral music has been commercially released in 2014 on the USA label Gothic Records.

Set Your Voice Free WEEKEND RESIDENTIAL


Price:

EUR345.00

Date: August 17, 2018

Find the courage to authentically be who you are. Through deep exploration of where our sound, our breath, and our passion comes from, together with the tools of Alexander Technique and Freeing the Natural Voice, you will be invited to find your voice while freeing movement and breath in the body. Discover how to use that part deep within that has been hiding as foundation for creative impulse. This leads to new discoveries in the voice, self, movements and breath, and in who we ultimately are. With child-like wonder, find your voice while dancing, moving, swaying. By learning how to “vibrate” sound, the sound begins to move through us; it begins to sing us.  Whether you are someone who secretly wishes you could sing, in chronic pain of discomfort in the body, a musician who feels there’s something holding you back, or if you feel jealous toward other creatives, the tools and techniques in this workshop will shine a light into blind spots within the body and soul to help you open up and meet yourself in a more meaningful way. You will leave this workshop with new inspiration, with tools of how to practice and play the instrument of your being.

Outline:
◦   Warm Up with sound and movement
◦   Body and humming rubs
◦   Simple mapping to understand how the body works and the mind-body connection
◦   Immediately useful Alexander Technique tools to enhance the breath and coordination in all activities
◦   Non-judgemental, yet stimulating atmosphere to deepen your understanding of how we use ourselves and how to improve this use

Previous participant testimonial:

At this workshop, facilitated by Deborah Jeanne Weitzman, I had no idea what to expect. It turned out to be an invitation to come alive, a chance to discover who I am and what I can do when I get out of my own way! I sang, I danced, I cried, all in a way I had thought I could no longer do. With kindness and mischievous humor, Deborah gave us space to share as much or as little as we chose. She listened, encouraged and acknowledged us in a most remarkable way. As the day progressed, I discovered myself freer than I’d been in years. Aches and pains and fears and the accumulated stress of living melted away. Throughout it all, we were fed tiny treasures to help realize the ease of our beings. I came to the workshop feeling insignificant, needy and a wall of negativity. By the end, I felt bountiful, loving, and so powerful the whole large room wasn’t big enough to contain me
