Love and Belonging: Harvesting the Power of Attachment, Intimacy and Autonomy

Jan 24 - 29, 2016 Begins in 1 month
with Dyrian Benz-Chartrand & JoAnne Chartrand-Benz

Love and a sense of belonging are the cornerstones to fulfilling relationships throughout life. When the flow of love and acceptance is interrupted in life, the soul suffers. With Relational Constellations, we uncover the disruptions and entanglements so that we can find strength, dignity, love, creativity, and a sense of belonging. Love and appreciation are the guiding principles used for finding good resolutions. Profound healing of heart, body, and soul are often the result.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
