Summer Newsletter 2019

June , 2019

As we approach the Summer Solstice, I realize that I have not posted a newsletter yet this year and am surprised by that.  The year has been full.  Authentic Movement classes have been powerful and full.  I offered a Beginning class on Wednesday nights during the winter.  It was well attended and a beautiful beginning into the depth of this form.  If any of you are interested in practicing, please drop me a line and let me know.  It is through interest that the classes and workshops develop.

Kelley Hunter, astromythologist and I offered a workshop combining Authentic Movement and  the Astrology of Moving through the Eclipse Portal in the early part of the year.  We are currently planning another offering and the details will be formed soon.

I have offered several Family Constellation Workshops this year and will continue to do so.  These are usually offered on a Saturday afternoon in Montpelier, but not always.  If you have done this work, you know about its effectiveness and mystery in releasing inherited patterns and entanglements in ancestral and family systems.  If you haven’t yet tried it but want to or just want to know more, please give me a call and I am happy to talk about it with you.  I am planning to make some short videos to post that will address certain aspects.  I will post them on my website and on my Facebook page–Jan Sandman: Listening into the Center.  Constellation work can be done in a group and can also be done privately and over Skype or FaceTime.

In August, I will again be teaching at the New England Women’s Herbal Conference.  I will lead three workshops, one regarding Authentic Movement and Moving with the Plants, a Constellation workshop creating a Prayer for the Earth and the third, a Sound Healing Ceremony.   If you plan to go to the New England Women’s Herbal Conference this year, perhaps I will see you there.

Since March, I have been working in a new painting studio and loving it.  I just created a website for my art work and will be adding to it over time.  Here is the link in case you are interested.

And as always, you can contact me for private sessions.

I wish you all a glorious Summer Solstice.



Through the Eclipse Portal: Astrology and Authentic Movement

Moving through the Eclipse Portal: Astrology & Authentic Movement

with Jan Sandman & Kelley Hunter

In this workshop, we enter the field of the  Total Eclipse of the Moon on January 21st,a compelling opportunity to engage the energetic awakening, unexpected perspectives and surprising flashes of fresh developments on the horizon. The emotional desire of this Moon is to break through the eclipse shadows into the freedom of uncharted territory.

First, we feel our bodies into the present space. We then discuss current planetary patterns of the eclipse and how each person’s astrological chart may be impacted by this celestial gateway.

Our dive into Authentic Movement is a profound practice of accessing wisdom and inner knowing through trusting how the body wants to move from the inside out, with eyes closed. This wordless alignment of body, intuition and soul will open us to our unique inner guidance, for clearing and preparation for the year to come.

We bring language and visual expression back in, letting the stories and meaning be told, shown, written….

Let the resonance of the day linger through the Eclipse and onward. The pre-dawn sky inspires and conspires with a close alignment of the two most brilliant diamonds in the sky—Venus and Jupiter, Love and Wisdom.

“Beauty is truth, truth beauty, that is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.” -John Keats
