Jadina Lilien leads workshops in Systemic Constellations nationally and internationally. Some words participants used to describe their feelings after the workshop were: inspired, content, alive with a wonder and creativity that was familiar but had been forgotten. When doing the Constellations, Jadina is able to be present with participants in a way that helps them take steps forward, untangling knots, and being free to access their own relationships to Source, living a deeper beauty behind the story they are presently constellating. Jadina's training in Family Constellation was with the Bert Hellinger Institute (USA)and many other international teachers. Jadina trained in theater, painting and photography at the Museum School of Fine Arts in Boston, receiving an MFA at NYU. Since then, her art work and films have been shown in galleries in the US and Europe. Jadina and Tiokasin are co-authors of the art book Butterfly Against the Wind with words and images reflecting teachings of the Lakota Nation, released in 2016/2017.
