Stress Management:

During a Stress Management workshop you will learn practical tools to cope with daily stresses. Chronic Stress is the major cause of a global epidemic of depressive illnesses and with Heart Disease are considered to be the major health issues of the 21st century. Both are stress-related illnesses.

In 2008, 21.2% of males (2.8 million) and 23.4% of females (3.2 million) aged 15 or older reported that most days were quite a bit or extremely stressful.  Males and females aged 35 to 54 and men aged 25 to 34 years were more likely than Canadians overall to report high levels of stress.  These are the ages at which people are most likely to be managing the multiple roles associated with career and family responsibilities. * http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/82-229-x/2009001/status/pls-eng.htm

"Diana Martinez is a master at Family Constellation work. She combines her huge heart with her precise clinical acumen to produce trans-generational, transformative magic. I highly recommend her workshop." -David C. Beck, M.D., Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatry

"Diana raises constellation work to a new level. She is utterly inspired." -Peter Schaffer

"Experiencing Diana's Family Constellation work as both a participant and as an observer was such a profound experience for me. Her precision, compassion and commitment to healing is deep and amazing. This was truly a transformative experience for me and the group! It was a beautiful gift for which I am very grateful!" -Kim Gilbreath

"For me Diana's family constellation workshop was the most coherent and powerful workshop experience I can remember. I'm looking forward to any opportunity to take another workshop with Diana and I recommend her for anyone who is interested to feel and experience deeper levels of truth." -Robert Grubber, NY

You are invited to explore the teachings of Mystical Principles combined with the essentials of Family Constellations to expand your understanding of the nature of transformation, access deeper healing and practice subtle competencies.

This workshop will apply Mystical Principles with the main revelations of Bert Hellinger's “Orders of Love” as a path of awakening into wholeness. Hellinger's “Orders of Love” explains that in order to become we need to belong. We will explore this in ourselves, in our families and in our lives.

Participants will have an opportunity to explore family dynamics, transgenerational family patterns, intimate relationships, illness and health and our relationship with the world.

 

“Beyond the idea of doing right or wrong, there is a field. I will meet you there.”-Rumi

 

Explore your own transgenerational influences, and see how you can heal them and free yourself!

Family Constellation can be helpful for people experiencing issues with:

Relationships

Family entanglements

Loneliness (need to belong)

Separation or divorce (self or family)

Sadness, unhappiness, lack of fulfillment

Grieving

Conflicts (inner and outer)

Loss of motivation

Work issues

Professional success

Historical events that have impacted you or your family

... and more.

 

 Course overview:

  • Morning and evening grounding exercises and guided meditations* (* the meditations are recorded and emailed to you afterwards)
  • Theory and discussion of Mystical Principles in Family Constellations
  • Participants' constellations
  • Personal inquiry and reflection through group work
  • Question and Answer in French and English, as required

Bert Hellinger is a German psychotherapist and the founder of the Family Constellations work. He realised that many of us take on family patterns which can generate various tendencies and symptoms such as lack of confidence, anxiety, guilt, anger, alcoholism or addictions, and even illnesses, as a way to unconsciously trying to belong to our family. Our family system is based on deep bonds and often as a child we sacrifice our own best interests to help heal family pains or traumas.

This workshop led by Diana is deeply inspiring and transformative. I have myself seen friends struggling with deep personal issues finally find a healing shift after Diana's workshop, a shift which was tangible and lasting. I cannot say enough about Diana, her dedication and healing skills are outstanding. I invited her to come to Ottawa, having experienced her gifts and skills directly and believing in this modality, seeing it as essential for us to heal as individuals and as a community. During this workshop, you will receive benefits whether you participate directly to the family constellations or simply observe. Diana has studied and practised meditation for over 17 years, she has studied closely with inspiring contemporary teachers such as Thomas Hübl, and her work is a combination of insightful mystical principles and a sound academic background. There will be grounding exercises, and guided meditations daily, which will be recorded and emailed to you after the workshop is over. It is an event that is unique and that I highly recommend!

COMMUNICATION

"True communication uses a deep and integrated knowledge to illuminate our daily life."
- Thomas Hübl

We sense the potential in every communication we have. The truth is despite our best efforts we are often unable to fully rise to this potential. To be able to truly explore this competency in communication we need to practice it in order to handle its beauty and complexity. It also requires a level of energetic balance and presence that also needs to be cultivated. But this practise in awareness makes life rich, exciting and opens us to greater life experience. We can then express more tenderly, or clearly, in a more fulfilling way. Sometimes an authentic communication is about speaking up. Sometimes it is about listening. Sometimes it is about learning to sense our own fears and reactions. And it is all part of this wonderful path of living with awareness and presence. Learning to communicate in this way has changed my life and many of my clients are saying the same.

A client said to me that she noticed that she sometimes leaves a conversation feeling slightly unhinged, and that she lets this feeling slip as she has a busy schedule ahead or she simply doesn't know what to do about it. However, she sensed that she could deal with those situations in a much more fulfilling way. This for me is a driving force, to access this potential, to address it with clarity and compassion, to grow, to shift to a greater awareness, and to a much more fulfilling life. In the last many years I have studied the art of communication. It is based on the ability to listen deeply and stay connected to our heart. I believe that the heart is often smarter than our brain. When we listen with our heart, when we learn to stay present, we can truly experience a shift in the way we communicate and enjoy a much more satisfying life.

Lynne Cardinal has studied extensively with Thomas Hübl on Transparent Communication and Principles of Transformation and she trained with Diane Hamilton in Conflict Resolution. Lynne has offered Communication skills, Stress Management, Resilience and Burnout Prevention workshops in the government and private sectors for over 30 years She is also a Consulting Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, holding additional certifications in Hypnosis Innovative Techniques and Weight Loss. She is certified by Dr. Weiss in Past-Life Regression and she has a PhD in Eastern Philosophy from India.
