Happy Winter! Last weekend I did a full day workshop focusing on Family Constellation and Continuum. It was a day for very deep inner personal work. I wanted to share these modalities with you because they are so rich for healing and introspection. I am so grateful to live in the Kootenays where there is an abundance of alternative healing practitioners. Robyn Irwin and Courtney Wren-Mabbutt are beautiful people and facilitated the workshop with grace.
Continuum is a gentle, restorative, somatic movement practice that develops awareness and engagement with the body as a living process. We use vocal sounds, the dexterity of breath and very subtle movements to stimulate and aliven the fluid system and inner resources, as well as notice, soften and release our subtle restrictive movement patterns and cultural conditioning so that we can regain access to, and revel in our bodies' innate wisdom, responsiveness, and healing potential. All of Continuum’s teachings are designed to connect with and enrich the fluid system, invoking it’s genius to transform structure and foster the art of self-renewal.
Continuum has been shown to be beneficial for pain, chronic injury and other physical limitations, promoting deep relaxation and restorative states of consciousness, and a sense of well-being and connectedness. It is a practice also explored by artists to dissolve creative blocks and support creativity and improvisation.
About Family/ Systemic Constellations:
Constellations are a relational process of tuning-in to the ancestral, family, land, cultural & collective field/ systems of energy all around us~ the morphogenic field or ‘knowing’ field. We join together in this together-space to listen and embody what is unspoken in the field, what is known by the soul, but unseen. Through curiosity and presence, we support our energy fields, DNA, nervous systems, cellular imprints and relational fields- the systems of all we are in relation to- to be transformed, for more love to flow.
You know that a constellations process is for you if: challenges or energy blocks you are encountering are familial and generational, you can sense that it didn’t start with you; you’ve been working with particular energies or blocks or struggles in many different ways and it doesn’t seem to shift; you feel overwhelmed by a particular issue and aren’t able to find clarity by holding it yourself: you long for deeper connection to the greater relational field of self, other, family, ancestral, community, the world; you desire to embody your own destiny, your own soul expression; you long to find your place in your family, lineage & land; you want to contribute to collective healing.
