She had, over a period of many years, worked and lived
at a meditation and growth center in Pune, India, where
she introduced constellation work. She also lived and
worked for 3 years at a retreat center in Italy. Her
way of working has also been greatly influenced and
enriched by her work with Native Americans, and by the
friendship and guidance of a Hawaiian elder on Maui,
SNEH writes: In my
way of leading constellations I use a variety of tools
I have learned from Master teachers over the world and/or
created myself. My early training in art and in acting
certainly will always be at the roots of how I lead
constellations: I like to apply them in a variety of
ways, with plenty of surprise and a good dose of humour.
(I believe that change can happen while we laugh.) I
love to use "chaos -constellations" (see my
article on http://www.victoria-schnabel.com/uksite/articles.html)
where our mind is at a loss while our soul can sing
Having in my past conducted constellation work and
training with first nation people, I have learned about
coyote-medicine and ever since I cannot help but sprinkle
some of it into my work. My ties to the island of Maui
and the friendship of a very wise and funny elder and
teacher there have left a special mark on what I do.
My recent training in SE (somatic experiencing), a very
thorough and delicate tool, has found it's way into
my work, adding new understanding and possibilities
about how to be with trauma coming up in constellations.
And yet all of my work would never have been possible
the way I do it, had I not spent a great amount of years
in India, in the presence of a modern mystic, an enlightened
master. His were the teachings about nothingness, non-judgemental
awareness and most of all about love- teachings unsurpassed
by anything else I learned.
When I am at work, all this is part of me as much as
being my mother's and my father's daughter, born in
Freiburg Germany, married to a Jewish New York Brooklyn
native. The sum total of what makes me do my work and
lead constellations are all of my life's experiences,
including the many excellent trainings I have had, and
all I believe in.
I absolutely believe that we are here to live the human
experience in many life times with zillions of possibilities
and no chance to ever fail, no matter what we think.
