Moving Towards Connection to Self and Restoration With Others: A Family Constellation Exploration Day
June 3, 10am-4pm
Josephine Butler Center
Donation-Based Exploratory Workshop (Value Suggestion of $75-150/person)
Are you longing for more freedom and choice in your life but often feel stuck or down unable to really reach what your heart longs for?
Do you try your best to communicate, connect with a partner, child or family member and deep connection always seem a step away?
Are you wanting a career/relationship/life change and can’t seem to shake off what seems to tie you down to persistent patterns of unhappiness?
Are you trying to create a new family culture and keep seeing old cycles of pain happening over and over?
These are some of the many intuitive questions that we have in our lives, questions we don’t usually ask ourselves or friends out loud and that often stay unanswered, clouded in confusion or despair, or we are so used to them that we have found ways to cope with them but never quite feel fully ourselves or free to create the life our hearts truly long for.
Are you ready to ask yourself some courageous questions, explore what may be blocking you towards greater connection, to see what movement or healing might get you closer to the quality of living and relating that you are longing for?
Come and join us for a daylong exploratory workshop using the processes and approach of Systemic Family Constellation. This transformative process is a way to explore the field in between us, to make transparent intergenerational, historical, societal pain and trauma that may be passed on from parent to child and onward. Using restorative dialogue, deep empathy and honoring, Hellinger’s Orders of Love, and other Family Constellation’s approaches, this day is an invitation to see what emerges and can be transformed instead of transferred.
This daylong exploratory workshop may call you if you are:
– Seeking to break old patterns, generational pain and conditioned limited beliefs and reclaim greater flow, freedom and choice
– Wanting to “find your place”, purpose, service, tribe … and deep human accompaniment and empathy on your journey
– Desiring to clear any obstacles to greater love, intimacy, connection to your loved ones (partners in any stage, child/ren of any age, family members …)
– Ready to process what feels like old familial or even historical trauma to liberate new energy and ‘move forward’
– Restore yourself, your family system towards greater wholeness and embodied healing and power

Venue Website: https://www.washingtonparks.net/josephine-butler-parks-center/
Parking is on the street. Metro is either Dupont Circle (Red), U Street/Shaw (Green/Yellow) or Columbia Heights (Green/Yellow), all with about 15-20 min walk. Bus lines on 16th and 14th street a block away.

LUNCH We will have 45-60 min lunch break. BYO and eat together either at the Center or outside at Meridian Hill Park (across the street), or buy options two blocks away towards U street.
In the morning, Mali will introduce Family Constellation overview and offer some mini-constellations where everyone will have a chance to experience some movement in relationship to a person or a pattern/trigger.
The afternoon will consist of two Family Constellations of 60~90 min each where one person* will become a recipient of a constellation. All participants will be invited to choose to either witness or participate as live embodiments of what will be called on the field. Witnessing and participating offer much healing opportunities as well as being a recipient, as stepping into the human experience itself and helping recover Flow offer its own gift to each participant, no matter “for whom” was the Constellation for. More explanations will be provided.
*Seekers will be drawn randomly. We will write all names of those wanting to receive a constellation and draw each name from a basket.
If after the workshop, you are wanting more individual Constellation work, you are invited to try an individual session in person or over the phone with Mali and/or request to be put on a waitlist for future group constellation offerings in 2017-2018.
This is a donation-based event as this is Mali’s first group constellation workshop. We invite you to consider donating between $75-$150 for the daylong and this is only a suggestion. All are welcome no matter the contribution levels. There will be a donation box at the end of the day so you can consider how this day contributed to you and the eventbrite will be open until the day after the event if you want to go back and contribute online.
