Awareness through Movement® classes – or the Feldenkrais Method® – offer an exciting holistic approach to health and healing. During class, you are guided through a series of deceptively simple exercises, which have a profound effect on your posture, breathing, and ease of movement. Some classes will focus on lengthening the spine; others on easier sitting, turning, reaching, or bending – things we do in everyday life and can do with greater ease. These classes are a wonderful complement to any exercise program, and are especially beneficial for anyone experiencing fatigue, pain, or restriction of movement. Benefits include deeper relaxation and fuller breathing as well as improved emotional well being and comfort. To register or for more information, email carolregan53@gmail.com or call 301-565-8208

A Family Constellations Workshop: Healing Ancestral Wounds through the Energy Field, with Carol Heil, LCSW-C & Members of The Constellations Group

Sunday, April 9, 20 17 • 9:30 AM to 5 PM (Please come at 9:15 for Registration)
$125 per person (Certificates of attendance available)

Family Constellations vividly demonstrate the profound impact of our families and ancestors. Hidden family events and dynamics from past generations may manifest in our current lives as illness, relationship problems, addiction, symptoms in children, lack of purpose, depression, anxiety, mental illness, etc.  Bert Hellinger, an international figure in the healing community, developed this method to uncover hidden dynamics which entangle us in fates not truly our own, but the legacy of others who did not resolve them in their lifetimes.

You must see and feel the constellation process in order to get it.  Serving as a representative is like stepping into the soul of the family.  It is as though the representatives are “channeling” the family energy field of the client—thus revealing the unseen forces that have held current family members captive in life patterns not previously understood.  Constellations reveal root causes of pain and “stuckness” and offer an opportunity for healing and transformation.

Members of The Constellations Group are all helping professionals and graduates of The Hellinger Institute USA. They have led workshops at Crossings as well as at National Integrated Health Associates (NIHA) and other organizations for over 13 years. Carol Heil, LCSW-C (301) 899-4841 or carolheil.lcsw@gmail.com; Betsy Hostetler, Phd (202) 362-8672 or hostetler.betsy@gmail.com; Mary Rentschler M.Ed (202) 244-8280 or wrennxx@verizon.net

JOURNALING AS A CREATIVE PRACTICE: A one-day retreat, with Nicole Salimbene and Susi Wyss

Sunday, April 30, 2017 • 10:00 – 3:00 pm
$80.00 per person. All materials are included with the fee.

This one-day workshop is designed for people who don’t consider themselves artists or writers, but are open to playful exploration of art and writing as a means of self-discovery. Nicole and Susi will lead participants in writing and art exercises introducing the practice of keeping a journal as a tool for reflection, self-inquiry and wellness. This is not a class to learn formal art or writing skills, but rather an invitation to use art and writing as a contemplative practice. To register, email Nicole Salimbene at salimbene@mac.com or call (240) 367-2301.

Nicole Salimbene has created a method for using the artistic process to develop mindfulness and to enrich vocational wellness, and has brought this approach to various academic institutions, community settings and professional associations. She has led workshops in contemplative art making practices in affiliation with American University, Clark University, the Lama Foundation, The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society and Ghost Ranch. A visual artist with an interdisciplinary approach, she works in painting, sculpture and installation exploring issues of transformation.
