Sanctuary Anywhere

David and Judy Pierce created “Friends Along the Road” after the death of Lilli, their only child and best friend. With Lilli gone, Dave and Judy no longer wanted to live. Nevertheless, they managed to hang on. In May of 2000 they quit their jobs and embarked on a two-year journey through the back roads of the U.S. and Canada to see if they could find reasons to keep living. After visiting with family members, meeting many friends old and new, and doing much soul-searching, Dave and Judy came to realize that they had learned a few things about grief. Knowing that everybody dies, and that all us suffer the loss of loved ones, the couple finally found something worth living for: helping others in deep grief. The story of their journey is chronicled in David’s book, “Looking for Lilli: Living With the Death of Our Only Child”

In 2002, Dave and Judy embraced the philosophy of caring support. Finding that there are many misconceptions about grieving, they came to understand that grief is an entirely personal experience, and that no one has the right to suggest how another ought to experience it. That’s why they created “Friends Along the Road:” to make such places available, and to be able to recommend similar places created by others.

www.friendsalongtheroad.org

David and Judy speak with Joanna about their life journey and the insights, grief and Nature, being present to the grief, “sanctuary anywhere,” forthcoming projects, “we are all in this together”…

The Pattern That Connects

an interview with Nora Bateson

Nora Bateson is a media producer and educator. Her work includes documentaries, multimedia productions, magazine columns, and developing curriculum for elementary and high school students. Central to all her pursuits is the idea of utilizing media and storytelling to encourage cultural understanding, social justice, and environmental awareness. Ms. Bateson has a steadfast dedication to the possibilities of human evolution, starting with encouraging young children to see the interrelatedness of the natural world with that of the “human-made” world using all media.

www.anecologyofmind.com

Nora speaks with Joanna about the process of making the film , the concept of beauty for Gregory Bateson, story as a co-evolving relationship, art and beauty as ways of intimacy with Nature, the perception of life as a “dynamic web of interrelationships”, paradox, play, double bind, the ecological imperative of changing our way of thinking about the world…

Healing of the Ancestral Field

an interview with Hella Neumann

Hella Neumann earned her MA in Art and Education from the University of Berlin. In 1975 she founded and directed (for 18 years) Atelier unterm Dach Art School in Germany. This work included Art Therapy, Bio Energetics and the Biodynamic Massage of Gerda Boyesen, London. In 1994 she began intensive study of Systemic Constellation Work in Germany with the founder, Bert Hellinger. Living and working nearly three years in a German monastery allowed for an intense period of meditation. This time away from the loud sounds of the world helped refine the sensitivity with which she now tunes in to the non-physical realms of the Ancestral Field. During two years in the Australian rainforest and an extended visit to South Africa she connected to indigenous ancestral wisdom and to the power of ritual which is an important part of her work. She began her own constellation work in 1997 under the name “Songs of the Ancestors,” leading Family Constellation workshops, private constellations and training facilitators. She remains in regular touch with Bert Hellinger and his evolving work and attends the national and international conferences in Germany. Hella lives in Germany and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

www.songsoftheancestors.com

Hella speaks with Joanna about the Systemic Constellation Work: ancestral roots, the family soul, the collective side of healing/change … through fascinating and moving examples.
