strength from within

A Family Reconstruction Workshop

Using our family of origin as a resource,
discover new ways to find strength within yourself

Sunday, Aug 14, 9-5PM
Boulder, Colorado

Chris McCarthy's Family Reconstruction

“The Law of Life is Change; Nothing continues for any length of time. Happiness must become unhappiness, and will be succeeded again by the joy it has displaced. And the past must also be reckoned with. It is scarcely as far behind us as we might wish, and the future trips over it just when we think the road is clear and joy our own.” -James Stephens

Participants will come away with an experience of:

  • Identifying Hidden Fears that Hold Us Back

  • Healing the Pain of the Past

  • Personal Integration

  • Claiming Self-Authority

The content of the workshop will primarily focus on the family and lineage of Chris McCarthy. All participants will have opportunities to explore the relationships in their family of origin and unlock new resources for growth.

The Family Reconstruction is a vehicle of transformation originally developed by Virginia Satir, a pioneer in human systems thinking in the 20th century. She has developed models to increase awareness, facilitate the healing of old wounds, and create opportunities for growth that have been taught around the world, benefitting hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

I was first introduced to human systems as a field of study and the work of Virginia Satir in 2000. That year I attended a Satir-based Family Reconstruction workshop conducted by Steven Young, one of Satir's formal students before she died in 1988. Since then, I have attended or facilitated over 400 days of personal growth, career development, and leadership trainings around the world. I am a leadership coach, and hold a Bachelors in Physics and a Masters in Organizational Leadership. I am an Agile Leadership Journey Guide and have studied extensively with Crafted Leadership. I am always excited to share the tools of discovery that I have used to help others, and myself.
