Ancestor Stories: Who’s Missing at Your Holiday Table?

For many people, the holiday season does not look like a picture-perfect Hallmark card. Far from it – stories abound with relationship stress, hurt and angry feelings within families, loneliness, the shattered aftermath of divorce and the sorrow of death.

The fact is that many people are missing at the holiday table – and often in our hearts as well. In this interactive training workshop, conducted by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we will explore the holiday season and its accompanying challenges through the lens of the experiential family systems approach known as Family Constellations, combined with psychodrama, sociometry and mindfulness.

The training workshop, sponsored by the Delaware Valley Psychodrama Collective, will take place from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, at Center for Families, 1225 Montrose Ave, Rosemont, Pa. A short business meeting is planned at 2 p.m., with the program following.

Family Constellations, developed by German psychotherapist Bert Hellinger about 30 years ago, is a powerful healing approach that gently reveals the unconscious and sources of recurring patterns that keep us isolated and disconnected. It is a collaborative activity, with participants welcome to participate at several levels: to simply observe, to assist as a “representative” or to present a concern to explore as a group. Throughout the experience, we will ask – how can we feel more connected to the ones we have lost or the ones who are estranged?

After this training workshop, members will be able to:

- Outline the basics of Family Constellations, the family systems method as developed by Bert Hellinger.

- Explain the Orders of Love, which identify how love flows in family systems.

- View and participate in a Family Constellations session according to group needs.

- Discuss how Family Constellations differs from psychodrama and how it is similar.

Retrieving the Treasure – Returning to Serve, Heal, and Transform the Wasteland

Our 2018 series, which has used myth and the Journey of the Heroine/Hero as a model for healing and transforming ourselves and our world, culminates in this final three-day workshop, which focuses on the Return of the Heroine/Hero.

During phase three, we again draw upon action methods and expressive arts, including the Sociometric Wheel, to help us explore:
• How the Heroine/Hero, who heard the Call and travelled the Journey to retrieve the Treasure, must Return home with those transformational gifts;
• How Global Citizens and Social Artists can nurture community, age consciously, share resources, and actively support the empowerment of all beings;
• The power of joining with kindred spirits in a compassionate community of support, inspiration, encouragement, and celebration; and
• A ‘winter’ of self-care needed to ponder and integrate transformational experience.

Participants will have the opportunity to:
• Identify and reflect upon the gifts they’ve received on the Journey – their Treasure;
• Interact compassionately with others in understanding how they might individually and collectively explore what it means to be Global Citizens and Social Artists;
• Access roles that can deepen their understanding of and experience with action methods and their use; and
• Reflect on how their learning might be incorporated personally and/or applied professionally after the workshop.

Though helpful, it is not necessary to have attended the previous two events. Indeed, as multifaceted beings, in one area of our life, we may be hearing a Call; in another, we may be experiencing the Journey; and in a further area, may be striving to integrate and apply new learning – the Return. The focus of this workshop is on the Return, but the overall heroine/hero’s journey remains the context and will be incorporated into the workshop.

Time: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day
ABE Hours: 18
