As we navigate our own emotions, now is the time to look inward for deep systemic healing. It seems to me that the following article is a testimonial to how we are experiencing our time in the world, right now!
2017 was the world's most miserable year on record, study says

West Mosul residents mourn relatives killed by an airstrike targeting ISIS jihadists. Iraq was named the world's second-most negative country in Gallup's annual Global Emotions Report.
London (CNN)Last year was the world's most miserable for more than a decade, according to a survey of people's emotions in more than 145 countries.
People experienced sadness, stress, worry, anger and physical pain more frequently in 2017 than in previous years, according to Gallup's annual Global Emotions Report.
The results mean the world is more "negative" than at any point since the polling company started the study in 2005.
In a year dominated by war, political division and humanitarian crises, nearly four in 10 people told pollsters that they experienced stress or worry the previous day.
One in five people reported feeling anger, while 23% experienced sadness and 31% suffered physical pain.
The title of most negative year in the Negative Experience Index had been shared by 2015 and 2016, with scores of 28, but 2017 recorded a score of 30. The survey polled 154,000 people worldwide.
"Collectively, the world is more stressed, worried, sad and in pain today than we've ever seen it," Mohamed S. Younis, Gallup's managing editor, wrote in the report.
"Regardless of where a country may fall on the Positive or Negative Experience Indexes or where it ranks in terms of specific positive or negative experiences, all leaders need to be monitoring the emotional temperature of the people they lead," he added.
When I read this article, I felt a great sorrow for those who experience deep trauma. Our work has helped so many heal their inherited trauma and I continue to wonder how to get more of our constellation work out in the world.
On a positive note:
The word is spreading. We have recently experienced success in Truckee, CA and in Salem, OR with another invitation to head out to Pennsylvania in spring of 2019. We have been honored to have been, and continue to be, invited to these healing communities. I am always amazed at how powerful this type of healing work is. The men and women who show up ready to do their own amazing healing are courageous and centered. Grounded and aware.
I have witnessed clients and representative experience tremendous healing using Catherine as their facilitator. These folks are so open and so willing to go as deep as they need so that true healing begins to occur.
Our workshops in Reno, Truckee, Salem, and on Whidbey Island this past year have been incredible. So many people have shown up to experience constellation work and to facilitate their own healing with Catherine's splendid guidance. Catherine and I look forward to many more humbling experiences as we head into the new year.
