In this workshop we will use family constellations, native shamanic practices and dream-tending to contribute to healthy relationships with our ancestors and descendants – past, present and future.
In a heart-centered circle of warm mutual presence, discovering, acknowledging, and tending to ancestral barriers, entanglements, and relational influences can allow harmonious connections to emerge.

(kids come free, with the understanding that parents will tend to them. POC, LGBTQIA+ and disabled folks are welcome to pay what you can afford.)
Attending both days is highly recommended, but you are also welcome to only attend one. Please bring a lunch (and a snack to share if inspired).
I’ll post a few group requests here in the early spring for predictability.
In this circle, I’ll facilitate a wide variety of Constellations addressing ancestral issues of all kinds. From a foundation in shamanic practices, indigenous wisdom, ecological intelligence, and dream tending, I’ll be practicing principles of a variety of family constellation with relational neuroscience, depth empathy and nonviolent communication as taught by Sarah Peyton.
Light snacks will be provided; you are welcome to bring healthy snacks to share with the group. We’ll break for lunch mid day, so bring a lunch or simple healthy food to share for an informal potluck, if it brings you joy.
Please plan to arrive around nine, gather up by 9:15 to connect and prepare and begin at 9:30am. I recommend dressing in layers to accommodate fluctuating temperatures. Please be mindful not to use scented products before attending. I welcome group collaboration to respect the needs of all participants.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
More about Systemic Constellations:
Systemic Constellations are a safely held and gently facilitated experiential group process. When a seeker requests a constellation, and once the issue and intention are clarified, members of the group are invited to stand in as representatives for various aspects of the presenting issue. In following the movements of the constellation in the context of the field of knowing, we are often guided into healing movements, expressions and insights which can resolve family of origin issues, internal systemic complexes, natal and developmental traumas or other hidden influences, patterns or entanglements which have often been in existence since long before birth.
There is no experience required for participation in this circle, and no special preparation is necessary. You are not required to present an issue of any kind. Deep healing occurs simply from witnessing or representing for others’ constellations, as we all exist in overlapping fields of resonance. I work in ways that honor and respect each seeker’s comfort with the group and there is no need to reveal the details of any specific situation.
There is room for work, play, participation or simply observation…everything we do is confidential, voluntary and held with the highest intent and integrity for mutual healing and support. ♥ Bring your life questions, issues, challenges and dreams to be explored!

What people are saying:
“I am grateful to Kirsten for the profound healing. I know the constellation work unfolds over time and as the weeks go by I will experience more of a shift in both hoped for and unexpected healing. I was impressed with Kirsten’s command of our space and gentle loving presence. I love how Kirsten brings together their shamanic studies and the evolution of consciousness with family constellations. Kirsten has a true gift.”

“Kirsten’s facilitation was stellar; they held space like a rockstar – strongly and easefully. I felt very safe in entering into very emotionally vulnerable places, and in connecting to my fellow workshop participants for this great work. I appreciated Kirsten’s rich and extensive background with Family Constellations, as well as history with Shamanic knowledge and practices. The Ancestral Healing workshop was so powerful. We were able to create such deep healing, both personally and – it seemed – globally. I am grateful.”
~ Adele Jerista, Spiritual Guide, November, 2013
“I attended Ancestral Healing on All Souls Day 2013. I was looking for a combination of constellation work with a shamanic foundation and this workshop was just what I was hoping for. Kirsten gracefully and powerfully facilitated a beautiful and sacred experience. It is important to me that I work with someone who has been in the depths of human experience and knows how to navigate through this into a transformative potential. Kirsten certainly has this skill and is available as a humble servant of the Universe. I have felt a shift in my physical body and the best thing is that I am reunited with my own Guides who are more present than ever to support me through the daily mystery dance between Spirit and Form.”
