In certain circles, there is a great deal of discussion about actions of “cultural appropriation,” the sociological concept which views the adoption of elements of one culture by members of another culture as negative and unsavory. (White musicians like Elvis etc., taking the black music and making a fortune from it, for instance.)
In this interview with Francesca Mason Boring, who is an author, international facilitator, teacher and lecturer, working with universal indigenous fields in family constellations, hear wisdom, caution and encouragement. Read here.
Systemic Constellations investigate the inner landscape of our relationships, especially with our family members and our ancestors, and reveal hidden information that can dramatically change our lives.
Tarot cards show us pictures that invigorate and inspire our inner lives and encourage us to discover new ways of looking at our dilemmas and challenges.
Truth is, they go so nicely together. The 2015 North American Systemic Constellations Conference thinks so too. I'm pleased to present the my workshop Eyes on Cards: How Images from the Tarot and Other Decks Support Healing at the conference Nov. 12-14 in San Diego.
Thoughts can be overwhelming when we try to figure things out. The still pictures of the Tarot and the images that emerge during a constellation session let us see what our heart knows. We learn that the pictures may contain unresolved pain as well as hidden joy -- and most importantly, show a route away from our difficulties and into joy and wholeness.
I love how the Tarot gives just the perfect picture for what is needed. In this video chat, I spontaneously pulled a couple of cards -- the first the Page of Pentacles, a young person reverently holding what is valuable, and the second card, The Fool, which beautifully illustrates the seeker on the beginning of the journey, willing to be surprised and enchanted by stepping into the field of "what is" and "what can become."
P.S. I don't know what's with my eyes -- aren't they a bit squinty! Anyway, enjoy the video and better yet, join me at the conference.
