Constellations Workshop
Wednesday May 31st 6:00 p.m.
Wayne Cina and Laura Ghedina
Our food choices, eating habits and cravings are interconnected with our blind loyalties to our family. The reason why we often can’t follow through with a diet or lifestyle change stems from the covert promises. Family Constellations is a very effective experiential approach to uncovering hidden emotional entanglements, which are often the roots of physical and emotional ailments. We would like to present a short talk on the matter and offer a constellation demonstration or an actual constellation if there is a brave volunteer present. When an illness is diagnosed, we often go right away into eliminating the symptoms without looking holistically for the causes. Often diet and exercise are not enough alone if energies are trapped in the body from historical, emotional challenges.  By suppressing symptoms, we miss important insights that can help profoundly in the (long-term) healing outcome. Family Constellations is a very effective approach in finding the roots of these hidden causes. The field of Epigenetics provides astounding research that links ancestral traumatic experiences and environmental stressors with our de/activated genes. Our inherited emotions decide which genetic blueprint in us is activated, and thus how resilient we are in staying healthy. Systemic Family Constellation Work, a modality developed by the therapist Bert Hellinger (a Catholic priest for 25 year) in Germany, discovers/discloses inherited emotions, and can resolve the impact they have on us. In their work with individuals and families Wayne Cina, licensed Marriage Family Therapist, and Laura Ghedina, Soul Body Health Coach, find that depression, anxiety, allergies, intestinal problems and other physical and mental illnesses are often connected to the client’s family system and its hidden dynamics. In their talk, they will share their insights, observations, and offer you a new outlook on illness and health. Wayne Cina – 203-231-0699Wpcct@yahoo.com  Laura Ghedina –  (207) 844-1121la.ghedina@gmail.com

Chimney Swift Celebration Night
Wednesday, June 7th 7:30 p.m.
The Audubon Center at Bent of the River!
Join us for “the Best Air Show in Town”! Chimney swifts are little dusky birds, resembling flying cigars that rarely fly below roof or tree canopy height. That’s why they often go unnoticed.  We should take notice, however, that they eat 1/3rd of their mass in insects every day!  Come learn all about these amazing little birds that fly at least 3,000 miles every year to raise their young right here in our backyard!  Everyone will meet in the Community Room at New Morning Market for a short talk and Q&A and then the group will take a field trip over to Mitchell School which has been identified as one of the largest summer roosting sites for chimney swifts in Connecticut!  This is one of the most entertaining bird sighting events you could experience in CT!  About 20 minutes before sunset they congregate in swirling groups which can number in the hundreds! They fly in formation like little fighter jets, until about 10 minutes after sunset when they will pile up, flip and drop into the chimney. You won’t want to miss this fun family event.  Donations to the The Audubon Center at Bent of the River are greatly appreciated. Free:  Register Here
