Joy Restoration and Divine Feminine Power for Women
Tuesday, May 9th 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m.
Donna Cassity, RN, MDiv. Health Coach and Spiritual Mentor
Lindsay Gibson BA, Pre and Post Natal Health and Spiritual Coach
Why do women need Joy Restoration and Reclaim their Feminine Power?
The world needs healing and the woman is best designed to heal others because divine feminine power is about love.  Love is the power that heals the world we live in and this is a woman’s birthright. She is designed to love and give nurture to the world around her.  This is the positive faith and healing that births a stronger generation that can heal others who engage and are influenced by her.

50 million people in the US are likely suffering from grief due to loss at any one time. Over half are women.  It takes 5 to 8 years to overcome major loss and function as one did prior to loss.  Wrong thinking about grief has led to unneeded suffering and myths have perpetuated.  Grief can originate from many things in a woman’s life from divorce, financial loss, job transitions, relationship breakups, loss of health and losing a baby or child.  Grief also comes from miscarriage and inability to get pregnant.

The CDC reports that an estimated  10-15% of pregnant women will suffer from postpartum depression.  That number is probably not accurate when you consider that many women do not report their grief A more accurate number each year might be approximately 950,000 women are suffering postpartum depression.

Post- menopausal women also suffer from depression because of the many changes in their bodies and loss of fertility and the empty nest.   Women suffer from silent grief.  We now know that unprocessed sadness can lead to postpartum depression, long term depression and increased stress that can greatly affect a woman’s health.  Our thoughts and emotions are powerful enough to make us sick.

In both of these transforming years of a woman’s life, she may suffer from a sense of loss in her own body, mind and spirit leading to chronic grief.  Whether she is in the fertility years, pre or post- menopausal, women need to find empowering ways to restore their balance, sense of purpose and take back their joy.  Tickets$20.00

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
