July Wellness Update
by Gracelynn Lau
Summer is the time of creativity, action and growth, reminding us the innocence and playfulness of the children. At the last Wellness Saturday systemic constellation workshop we dived into finding the voice and the qualities of the child within us all. Jan Hull and her constellation team took us into a wild journey, skillfully teasing out some of the key elements in the collective – “Joy/Freedom”, “Acute Reflection”, “Divine/Beauty”, “Self Critic”, “Family Critic”, “Corporate World Critic”, “Epic distraction and confusion”, “Community support”, “Fear”, “Courage” and more. Participants in the workshop intuitively chose one of these elements to represent. Each one of us in the circle was guided in the somatic process, allowing the Morphic Field to inform us what need to be unfolded. One of the key messages that came through in the workshop is that belonging doesn’t have to be so complicated, that we all belong naturally, each one has a place, including the “Critics” in the family; in society and within ourselves. OUR Sustainable Wellness team will bring in an advance systematic constellation 1 day workshop on August 17 9am-5pm. Interested to know more this powerful healing modality that focus on ancestral, cross-generational healing? Registration is available soon
