The Price of Being Good: 3 Days of Constellations with Master Constellator Elena Veselago

October 6 @ 6:00 pm - October 9 @ 12:30 pm

3 Days with Master Constellator Elena Veselago

Near Portland, Oregon at the Alton L. Collins Retreat Center, Oct. 6-9, 2019

The theme of this workshop will be guilt and innocence, and about how being good for our families can cost too much, while being oneself can be unbearable because of the intense guilt which can arise when we turn away from the traditions of our families.

During this retreat we will look at how families determine the rules of our lives, making us good little girls and boys. As we grow up, many of us begin a desperate struggle with these rules. Why is this struggle so difficult? Because when we enter it, we lose our connection with mother and father – the old childhood connection. And this loss seems enormous.

Looking at this process through the lens of the movement of the field and the laws for the creation of systems can be very helpful in staying connected with family and still living one’s own truth. We will touch on all the basic themes: relationships and aloneness, children and parents, childlessness, professional success, and spiritual self-determination.

At this workshop, Elena will do constellations per the requests of the participants, offer exercises for everyone, and also explain the laws of the field.

Elena is deeply immersed in the energetic qualities of the field, has done thousands of constellations, and has trained thousands of facilitators. Her work and teaching have extraordinary clarity and grace. Elena will most often speak in Russian and Sarah Peyton will offer consecutive interpretation into English.

The focus will be on learning, with the added possibility of receiving a constellation (not guaranteed).

Тема семинара: о вине и невиновности, о том, что быть хорошим для своей семьи может стоить слишком дорого, а быть собой оказывается невыносимым из-за свойственного нам чувства вины, возникающего, когда мы отказываемся от традиций своей семьи.

The Price of Being Go(o)d / Трудно быть хорошим *

Как жить по-своему и сохранить связь с семьей.

На воркшопе мы рассмотрим, как семья определяет правила нашей жизни, делая нас хорошими мальчиками и девочками. Вырастая, многие из нас начинают отчаянную борьбу с этими правилами. Почему эта борьба так трудна ? Потому что в ней мы потеряем связь с мамой и папой – старую детскую связь. И эта потеря кажется огромной.

Понимание этого процесса черех чтение поля и законы построения систем очень помогает сохранить связь с семьей и жить так, как ты сам считаешь верным. Мы затронем все основные темы: отношения и одиночество, дети и родители, бездетность, профессиональная реализация, духовное самоопределение.

На воркшопе Елена будет делать расстановки по запросам участников. предлагать упражнения для всех, а также разъяснять полевые законы.
