Pebble feet that represent family constellationsWe invite you to stir your soul and breathe back life into your family system with Shama and Merissa. This 1 day intensive could allow you new insights into what may be keeping you from living and achieving the life you want.

What makes this workshop unique is that we will guide you into uncovering some hidden dynamics far deeper than conventional therapy can uncover. Depths that often influence the way we take life in or the way we live life. Breath and its depth and fullness is what creates connection and ease. This natural process of safely breathing life in gets entangled and caught up in the fears and stresses we carry in our bodies often unconsciously. 

In this intense 1 day workshop, we will use the combination of systemic approach (family constellation) and breathwork to shift the blocks preventing you from fully living with vitality and joy. Our aim is to create a safe space for you to be inspired and encouraged to move beyond the limits of conditioning and step into a new way of being with a lightness that comes from unburdening yourself, bringing more awareness, ease, and laughter to your lives.

Systemic Constellation approach views people as being embedded in and influenced by a larger family system. You inherit more than your eye colour and blood type, you inherit an emotional legacy that stays hidden and often gets missed in conventional therapies. Anxieties, fears, phobias, obsessive thoughts, unexplained symptoms, failed relationships or failed success, could belong to someone 2 or 3 generations back that have ensnared you and keep you stuck in this repetitive cycle.  In this workshop, you will be invited to create your own experiential family dynamic. It is done by constructing a three-dimensional ancestral healing experience. This is a viseral experience that allows you to examine hidden dynamics that may allow you new insight into the unconscious and an opening to create a deep internal shift. Family Constellations can help you re-establish a healthy connection with yourself and your ancestors setting you free to forge your own path filled with passion and life energy.

In the second half of the day, we will work on connecting to this new opening through BREATHWORK (REVIVAL). Each time the new image is revisited through Constellation work, an opening is created, giving you the opportunity to breathe life into that space, reconnecting with this new awareness.

Breathwork is an effective tool that allows deep integration to your body, resetting traumas and creating a state of inner peace, harmony, and balance. It allows you to let go of stuck emotions and gain a sense of freedom as well as cultivates a deeper connection with yourself and others.

We will conclude your day with a one hour Osho Kundalini Meditation to shake off and balance the body energy so that you leave the workshop calm and grounded.

This workshop is perfect for beginners and experienced attendees alike. The atmosphere will be comfortable and safe at all times. There will also be time for sharing, which is one of the important parts of the workshop process.
