Bringing Light into the Dark: Raising Energy for Our Clients and Ourselves
“Bringing the Light into the Dark: Raising Energy for Our Clients and Ourselves,” is the title of the professional training that will focus on practicing and teaching self care from the perspective of energy balancing and education from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 8, at the Samaritan Counseling Center, 1803 Oregon Pike, Lancaster, Pa.
As we approach the winter solstice, we will focus on the “soul” of energy education and how we can prepare ourselves and our clients for the cold and darker months ahead. In this training, instructed by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we learn the energy functions of the body’s chakras and how they determine our physical energy levels, our emotional well-being and our ability to function effectively in the world. chakras become weak, restricted or misdirected, leading to what the traditional mental health field calls depression, anxiety and other disorders.
In this workshop, you will learn:
Karen will include teaching the use of action methods, particularly psychodrama, Family Constellations, guided imagery and the creative arts, to address family system and cultural systems information. The workshop will consist of didactic teaching, questions, demonstrations and opportunities to bring clinical case studies forward for supervision.
You will also have the option to address personal issues in a confidential setting. You may bring your lunch or plan to go out for a 45-minute lunch. Tuition is $85 (before Dec. 4, $95 after) and will include six CE credits for social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors and addiction counselors, plus psychodrama credits. Space is limited; please contact Karen to reserve.
The training is appropriate for mental health and other health professionals, addictions counselors, educators, life coaches, clergy, community activists and others who work in social services programs as well as advanced students.
A selection of Karen’s books, including Show and Tell Psychodrama: Skills for Therapists, Coaches, Teachers, Leaders and Healing Eating Disorders with Psychodrama and Other Action Methods: Beyond the Silence and the Fury, will be available for sale.

Ancestor Stories: Taking Blessings, Receiving Strength
This experiential workshop, led by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, will explore how our lives are impacted by those who came before us -- our ancestors -- and how we can find relief from carrying the burdens that do not belong to us. In doing so, we discover hidden patterns in our family tree that may affect our relationships, business or health and heal these love-blocking energies.
Even more, we uncover the blessings and strengths inherent in our legacy and take them in.
The next workshop is 1 to 4 p.m. on date to be determined and will be hosted by Radiance, 9 W. Grant St., Lancaster, Pa. Each participant may be involved as much or as little according to comfort level, sharing general issues, not details. The group is collaborative and we improvise, according to the needs of the participants and the group.
Some people call this kind of work to “modern shamanism” and others resonate with the mysterious spiritual components that are both invisible and powerful. Those who are interested in increasing or accessing their intuition and inner knowing will find this body-based inquiry highly valuable, a kind of a laboratory to practice and refine sensing energy. Whether you observe or actively participate, you’ll learn a lot about yourself and how you are a part of those who came before you.
Cost is $35 in advance, $40 on the day of the workshop. Early registration is recommended by contacting Radiance at (717) 290-1517.
