with Marianne Gabriel MA UKCP and Charlie Stevens MA MIAHIP
What we continue to discover and excites us is how soulful movement practice and systemic constellations create the possibility of a widening field. Other supportive practices we use that can develop the qualities of the heart are, chanting, soul dance, and meditation.
The path of the year we take together will move through the elements of ground, flow, fire, air, spaciousness and mind. We will explore deeply together such questions as:-
What do I care about?
What resources me?
What gets in the way?
What is it that’s whispering?
What am I practicing?
What am I good at?
What am I grieving?
What am I curious about?
A quote from Marianne about her work.
'Self-Nurture with a holistic yoga practice using the feminine and masculine principles of intuition, flow, receptivity, stretching and ease, together with cultivating core strength. We are invited into our natural movement through somatic movement explorations, dance, breath work, inner work (journaling & art forms) healing power of sound and Rest. The creative way I work with the anatomy of body/mind has arrived through a synthesis drawn from many different approaches. Its starting point is from the felt-sense of a need to follow the body's desire to move and thus allow its own natural movement as a way of healing and retrieving and reclaiming the forgotten, hidden neglected parts. Often what shows up is our creative fire, or our watery flow, our pleasure or in the words of the poet Mary Oliver a calling back to our "one wild and passionate life" My intention is to create a safe and protective space where we can feel more ease and space in our bodies, breathe a little deeper and connect to our primordial life force re-connecting to our true and wild and nourishing nature.
Out of our movement we find ways to language our inner experience in writing and art and ritual.'
' I and many others have found that Constellations can be used not only to see the effects and possible resolution of hidden family dynamics but also to explore issues such as the systemic causes of illness, the blockages in business development, your relationship to money or those people with whom you struggle. There are many applications of this most powerful method. This way of working combined with group and individual process work creates new possibilites in the neurobiological circuits and therefore our daily lives'
