Constellations Workshop
Wednesday March 8th   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
