#ConstellatePeace and Seeing With Your Heart present
A Retreat for Changemakers
July 17- 19, 2016
Copper Beech Institute
West Hartford, CT
We are convening a circle of healers and change agents to activate a new path for collective healing, earth community and social change.
In this unique retreat, we will weave together modalities that generate:
- SYSTEMIC UNDERSTANDING
using Systemic Constellations to understand the roots, resources, and subtle dynamics of the complex challenges we face
- COLLECTIVE HEALING
through presence, somatic awareness, grounded witnessing and support
- A PATH FORWARD
with emergent processes drawn from Art of Hosting and other social technologies
Social Alchemy creates a safe space in which deep, often suppressed aspects of the collective field can be seen, held and healed. The power of our work together resides in our innate but often untapped ability to reliably access and apply accurate intuitive and collective wisdom toward the service of social good.
Using innovative and accessible social technologies, we will harvest what we learn from the Field. This gathering aims to generate a “group oracle” of healing insights and stories, allowing you to return to your community with a treasure of new tools and understandings.
To support our forward movement, we will stay connected post-retreat. With our Social Tech Team, we will create opportunities for on-going, peer-led support.
Our Host Facilitators include Alison Fornés, Dan Booth Cohen, Emily Blefeld Volden, and Bruce Nayowith, with additional facilitators to be announced. Each of our Host Facilitators are skilled in bringing together intuitive and intellectual ways of knowing, and holding space with presence and sensitivity.
Our circle is one of many that are coming together at this time. We are part of a heritage that has convened for generations before us. We honor our ancestors, and we bless our own descendants. May our work benefit the global and universal family.
