Occasionally, we like to pop in and see how you're doing. It's important for us to pause, breathe, and reflect on what we've learned, what we've accomplished, and what's working or not working for us.

The Idea of the Week

Check-ins are an opportunity to mindfully engage in your surroundings and experiences, or in self-reflection. When we check in with ourselves, we assess our emotional experiences and problem-solve ideas and actions to improve our situations.

There are many methods you can use to check in with yourself. Here are some ideas:

Once we have brought ourselves to the present, we can take the moment to ask ourselves questions and listen to our answers. You can ask and answer by

  • journaling by typing on a computer or phone, writing with pen and paper, or using text-to-speech features;
  • asking/answering yourself aloud;
  • asking/answering yourself in your head;
  • signing to yourself;
  • asking/answering your reflection in a mirror;
  • asking parts of yourself (e.g. asking the part of you that feels anxious or stressed or overwhelmed);
  • answering by talking to your pets;
  • answering by talking to stuffed animals or other inanimate objects that bring you comfort;
  • answering yourself in the language and method that feels comfortable for you (even if it seems unconventional).

Practice of the Week

There are many ways to check in with yourself. We’ve curated a few questions to guide your check-in if you’re feeling stuck:

  1. What does my body feel like? Where do I notice any feelings?
  2. What emotions am I experiencing? Try to name the emotions or identify where you hold them in your body.
  3. What’s taking up most of my thoughts right now? Write your thoughts out. You may even want to try scribble writing (a 1 minute TikTok)!
  4. When and what was my last meal? Did I drink enough water today?
  5. What habits or practices have been working for me? What hasn’t been working for me?

How was your check-in? Let us know on our Instagram or Facebook page!

Family Constellations and Sharing of Ancestral Knowledge Workshops with Tati

Join Tati on her first US visit from her home in Ecuador, where she owns a healing and psychotherapy practice working with sacred plant medicine, ancestral healing, and art therapy.

Family Constellations is a type of therapeutic approach that focuses on exploring the dynamics within a person’s family system, including their relationships with parents, siblings, grandparents, and other family members, even ancestors. This approach can be used to address a variety of issues, such as relationship difficulties, emotional blocks, and unresolved traumas.

This workshop involves a group of participants who come together to explore their own family dynamics through a series of exercises and discussions led by our facilitator, Tatian Davila, a psychotherapist, healer, and seeker of ancestral knowledge. Tati will offer 2 workshops as well as individual healings. The workshops will be held at Breathing Space Studio in Erieville, NY.
The Family Constellations Workshop will be held on April 22, 2023, from 10 am to 4 pm. 

The Sharing of Ancestral Knowledge Workshop will be held on April 23, 2023, from 10 am to 4 pm.

Both workshops will be held at Breathing Space Studio
3455 Erieville Road
Erieville, NY 13061

Individual Healing Sessions will be held in Fayetteville, NY from April 24th through 28th.
