The Family Constellation Workshop is a beautiful way to bring the real issues in your family system to light. Systemic Constellation is an effective method for working with trans-generational issues and repeating patterns that show up in the family by increasing the flows of Love in your family system, easing the blockages to the flows of Love. A Family Constellation Workshop is a beautiful and gentle way to bring the real issues in your family system to light and to encourage them to transform. Systemic Family Constellations began in Germany in the early 1980s, and are the life work of Bert Hellinger, psychotherapist. Systemic Family Constellation is a popular, known therapy worldwide and is now gaining traction in the US.  What is Family Constellation and how does it work?  During a Systemic Family Constellation workshop, we gather as a sacred circle of individuals in service to our families and to each others' families. If you have an issue you want to look at in your family system, I will ask you some basic questions about your family system: Who was excluded? Did anyone die at a young age? Was anyone forgotten? When I have a sense of where the issue might be centered, I ask you to chose people from the group to represent your family members, issues, events, or even places which might have a bearing on the issue. I will ask you to place each representative in the working space in the manner in which it feels 'right' to you.  When a representative is placed, they are connected to the Knowing Field of your family system. They begin to relate to one another in very specific visual and spatial ways. From these relationships, we can see what cannot normally be seen about the inner workings of the system, and we can see where blockages occur. By nudging the system and by encouraging representatives to use Healing Statements of simple truth about what is, we strengthen the system and increase the flows of love within it. Systemic Constellation is one of the only methods for examining and modifying trans-generational patterns within the family system. To have a successful constellation you don't need to bring any other members of your family with you! We can do deep work in constellations because you bring the complete Knowing Field of your family system with you. We work with the system itself when we do a constellation. You can bring any issue to the workshop to be constellated. In the past, clients have looked at issues such as these: Repeating Patterns Across The Generations Addiction Estrangement Loss of Fortune Repercussions of Immigration Physical Pain which defies treatment Eating Disorders and many more Constellation work looks into the systemic aspects of the issue, that is, the parts of the issue which lie in the system itself, rather than in individuals.

*TIME TO BE ANNOUNCED* The various yoga communities around the globe are incredibly expansive in their philosophies, practices, methods and cares. At Yoga Alliance, we believe we are better for that diversity, especially when we come together in yoga to channel our collective energy together for the greater good. In order to better understand the perspectives of different yoga communities, this summer, our President & CEO David Lipsius and COO Shannon Roche are embarking on a journey across the U.S. to personally share with you the ways in which the organization is changing to better serve the yoga community and to request your guidance and feedback.  The discussion will include details on the Yoga Alliance Standards Review Project, a comprehensive and inclusive review to ensure that our standards are appropriately evolving over time. As a member organization, Yoga Alliance is most known for its standards and credentials. Because the Yoga Alliance credential is immediately recognizable by most yoga practitioners, it is vitally important that teachers and practitioners understand what our standards mean.  By developing standards and offering credentials to those who meet the conditions of the standards, Yoga Alliance: Provides teachers and schools a measure for quality, safety and performance that they can claim in order to get jobs or promote themselves to the public; Assures quality, safety and performance for customers/students of teachers and schools; Allows those most knowledgeable on the subject matter to shape the field; Discourages government agencies from standardizing all of yoga into narrow definitions; Improves competence and effectiveness of its members. At Yoga Alliance, we know that personal connections and respectful, peaceful and conscious communication are keys to successful relationships so we look forward to meeting you and opening a dialogue that we hope will continue for years to come.

Pleasure Evolution and Brad Leaf Amberheart invite. . . LADIES, GENTS, AND PEOPLE OF ALL GENDER IDENTITIES: As a giver: Learn to support, nourish, and EXCITE your male-bodied PARTNERS by helping us re-claim our relationship to our 1st Chakra, and the Evolutionary Pleasure Center known as the "Male G-Spot! As a receiver: Learn to surrender, receive and connect to your ecstatic body. Together we can activate a powerful source of life-giving pleasure, hence transforming a masculine-dominant cultural paradigm into one of creativity, joy, and life-giving vitality. Whether you are straight, bi, gay, or none-of-the above, if you have a PROSTATE and a healthy butt*, YOU have access to an extraordinary generator of PLEASURE for yourself AND for your lovers who are REALLY going to fully ENJOY you when you get so turned on you can't stand it!    *Even hemorrhoids or other 1st-chakra discomforts are no excuse for depriving yourself of pleasure.  This workshop will even show you methods for bringing love and nourishment to your ass which can result in miraculous healing, even if it starts by learning to give ourselves simple, motionless, external touch, and bearing witness to the healing which surges forth from that place of peace, comfort, and self-love.   Come Home and Help us reclaim the Sacred. The Male G-Spot is one of the most powerful (yet least employed) catalysts that men have available to generate PLEASURE.   In Tantra, we regard pleasure as one of the great healing powers.  The more pleasure we can generate, the more we can gain access to higher states of Vision and Ecstasy.  Higher states of Vision and Ecstasy provide vital insight, wisdom, and information for our life’s decisions.   Oh, if only more of our World Leaders could learn to play with their assholes!   Today, we’re inviting ourselves to be the leadership we seek in this world!   MODULE 1:  UNLOCKING THE SACRED TABOO RITUAL and CONSCIOUS HONORING are at the core of what we’re here to do this evening. Within a sacred, sweet, honoring container, we'll have a DEMONSTRATION of male anal/g-spot pleasure by a duo or two who are experienced in the art of giving, receiving, and generating high levels of ecstatic pleasure. There will also be a short primer about hygeine to help dispel old myths and open the way to more pleasure and FUN!  Many of us, sadly, have not yet had the opportunity to be in the presence of a man who is ecstatically activated by anal/prostate massage, and so…here is an opportunity to fully engage in conscious WITNESSING of this sacred and very powerful way of generating life-giving energy for ourselves, our loved ones, and this world.  You’re going to be invited to drum, sing, and dance, or just watch and learn, in accompaniment to these demos (rituals) of re-awakening.  Movement and song are actually the key elements which will help each of us move the energy and emotions which come up when doing such deep work and unlocking the sacred taboo.   Your presence as witness will, in itself, begin a much-needed planetary transformation which will help bring all of us some much-needed relief from the stress, anxiety, and competition which have ruled our world for far too long. Come help us! Thank you! We’ll close the evening with a heart circle so that all who have been present—in bravery, in joy, or in trepidation—can share whatever came up for them during the demos.  The opening of hearts will help prepare the group for the NEXT LEVEL, next week!  MODULE II:   Blazing the Trail Home to Bliss and Magic Get out your latex gloves and favorite lube!  It’s time for ACTION!  (Latex and non-latex gloves will actually be provided, as well as a a take-home sample of the best butt lube in the world, wild-crafted by our own faerie medicine person in Cherokee.) !***  We’re going to have an experienced male model or two on-hand so that YOU can explore the male anatomy and get some of those questions answered that you’re never had a chance to ask.  THEN, for all of you who are READY for some FUN, we’re going to have practice sessions!  If you’re a person with a prostate who thinks you might have a desire to EXPERIENCE G-Spot ecstasy this evening, please come prepared (see bradamberheart.com/buttplaybasics for some preparation suggestions). IF YOU DON'T FEEL YOU'RE UP FOR GIVING OR RECEIVING MALE G-SPOT MASSAGE THIS EVENING, NOT TO WORRY!  Your PRESENCE is what's most important. Witness. Support. Encourage. Honor this Sacred pleasure center which has been ignored in our recent culture. Our ultimate wish is to put to practice the valuable insights that we’ve gained, and to attract ever more opportunities for transformational pleasure!  Blessed Be. ***Note--if you think you might want to experiment with the art of GIVING the gift of g-spot pleasure this evening, or learning how to, then PLEASE TRIM YOUR FINGERNAILS 2 days in advance. If you’re a man who’s ready to experience the joys of receiving anal play, please go to this link to review some helpful tidbits about preparation and hygeine, which we’re also covering in Module I bradamberheart.com/buttplaybasics.  Thank you!***

Description:
The Sacred Breath Facilitator Training is designed as a rite of passage into spiritual leadership in addition to a comprehensive training immersion for the trainee. You will heal, you will shed, you will learn, you will activate. Guided by the intelligence of breath and benevolence of Spirit, the entire experience will serve as an initiation into the role of the Sacred Way-Shower. With higher knowledge comes reverential power, and with such power comes sacred responsibility. While the decision to serve humanity in this way is a noble intention, the path comes with a responsibility to represent the spiritual forces of existence with integrity, humility and grace. Thus, we seek to guide the trainee into their most luminous and crystalline embodiment so that they may anchor and harness these energies, becoming a true conduit. By walking between the worlds in purity, we can assist in bridging spirit and matter, illuminating the shadow, healing the wounds, empowering the essential self, and weaving beauty, light and truth into all we touch.  Each training is completely unique to the individual, based on their spiritual developmental needs. Kaya and Malakai will anchor a space of receptivity to divine guidance and work to support you in the process of surrendering to the wisdom, passion and unique soul blueprint of your higher self. This entire process will serve to illuminate the essential elements of the very transformation you will be facilitating others to have in the future. By the end of the training, you will have a complete understanding of why we are weaving breath medicine and a knowing that not only are you infinitely supported in offering this revolutionary platform to others, but that the process itself is birthing into the world through you from the loving, celestial beyond.   Testimonials: "Participating in the Sacred Breathwork Facilitator Training was a heart-opening and life-changing experience! Kaya and Aeleo create a beautifully sacred and healing space for personal growth through the breathwork and also fully prepare you to guide others through the process. They encourage each participant to find their own path of facilitation, which felt empowering and respectful of our own learning and process. It is clear they have done their own work in the way that they show up with authenticity, unconditional love, non-judgment, and integrity. They are experts at intuiting and meeting people where they are! I can’t wait to do more work with them in the future. I highly recommend this training for anyone interested in breathwork and teaching it in their communities!"  — SHARON J. BALSAMO "There are no words for how amazing and transformational the Sacred Breathwork Facilitator Training was. The opportunity came into my life at the perfect time and brought in an abundance of true light and strength. Kaya and Malakai are such beautiful souls and have so much love and healing to offer the world! I am forever grateful that they appeared on my path and have helped me to find my most aligned, powerful self. I did not originally choose to do this training to become a breathwork facilitator, I am a stay-at-home mother of young children, so I thought I was just doing it as part of my own healing journey, but that quickly changed and now I cannot wait to offer this deep healing to others. My heart is so full of gratitude and my mind is in a state of pure bliss!" — KIFFANY HORTON https://www.sacredbreathacademy.life/breathwork-teacher-trainings-us/

Description:
This class bundle includes the one-time, three-hour Childbirth Refresher Class and the one time Welcome Baby Sibling Class. The Childbirth Refresher Class is for women who have given birth previously.  We will cover what to pack, signs of labor, coping techniques, hands-on comfort measures, labor positons, birth preferences and informed consent, and ideas for sibling integration and postpartum planning. Many families need support for siblings with a new baby. The Sibling Class is designed for you to learn about integrating the new baby to the mix, together with your children. Come to class with your older children and learn ways to welcome the new baby, how siblings can help with the day-to-day tasks a newborn requires, transitioning to a family of four or more, and how to prepare children for the birth of their new brother or sister.  The class will focus on what to expect, the changing family dynamics, challenges with older children such as toilet training and sleep.   Select a Sibling Class to attend - you may attend the sibling class whenever it fits your schedule, prior to, after, or in the same month you attend your Refresher class. The children will paint a onesie for the new baby and create a big brother/sister tee shirt for themselves. They will also receive "I'm the Big Brother/Sister" certificate upon completing the class  This class is appropriate for kids 2 and older.   For this bundle you will pick the date of your refresher class and during checkout you will pick the Saturday for your Sibling Class. You can choose to attend the Sibling Class during the same month as your Refresher class, prior to or after your Refresher class - whatever fits your schedule. And now for the fine print...Because our classes often sell out, we do not offer refunds or transfers for non-medical reasons, so please be sure you can attend the class you register for! If you choose to register for class that will begin after 37 weeks, there are no refunds if your baby arrives beforehand.

Description:
Welcoming another new addition to your family?  Is your older child excited about becoming a big sibling but not sure what their new title really means? Register now for this awesome Sibling Class. The Sibling Class is designed for children ages 2 and older. Each class we sit together and learn the basics about newborns - what they are wearing when they are born, how babies communicate, and what babies need (diapers, clothes, blankets, love). We talk about the process of labor and birth in G-rated fashion - where moms and dads go to have a baby or what it will be like to have a baby at home, how the baby gets out of mom, what are those funny sounds mom is making, and that mom is OK. Children are encouraged to bring a baby doll or baby-sized stuffed animal to class so they can diaper, clothe, swaddle, and hold the baby. They will learn the important ways they can help when the new baby comes home and learn how to "play" with thier little sibling and show the baby love. Each class includes time to read a book, watch a birth story, and do a craft and ebbs and flows to hold the attention of the various ages in the group. Although this class is primarliy focused on the children, parents will learn tips about integrating the new baby to the mix, including ways to welcome the new baby, how siblings can help with the day-to-day tasks a newborn requires, transitioning to a family of four or more, and how to prepare children for the birth of their new brother or sister.  The class will also have resources on what to expect, the changing family dynamics, challenges with older children such as toilet training and sleep.   The children will create a onesie for the new baby and create a big brother/sister tee shirt for themselves. They will also receive "I'm the Big Brother/Sister" certificate upon completing the class  YOU MAY ALSO LIKE: Childbirth Refresher Class We also offer class bundles:  Childbirth Refresher Class + Welcome Little Baby Sibling Class
