“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.”
What is the level of thinking that created our problems? The thinking that we are separate. The good news is that solutions emerge when we operate from the knowing of our interconnection: our Expanded Knowing.
I am overjoyed to announce the establishment of the Center for Expanded Knowing in Greenfield, MA!

To say that working with Alison is paradigm shifting would be an understatement: it’s paradigm exploding! This work opens realms of connection, healing and truth that I’ve never imagined I could access…”
I have been facilitating and/or teaching for nearly 30 years. I started in 1991 as an undergraduate peer-facilitator at the University of Michigan. In 2001, I began my career as a high school teacher in New York City. And in 2011, I was introduced to Family and Systemic Constellations. The process arrived in my life just as I was ready for a transition. Within a year of my first constellation workshop, by September 2012, I had transitioned from classroom teaching to begin training in Constellation work.
Constellation work has brought me to a wide range of groups and audiences. Since starting my practice, I have presented to alumni of the Harvard Kennedy Business School, and middle school teachers at the Cornerstone Academy for Social Action in the Bronx. I am a regular guest at Vassar College, and am proposing a regular constellation circle for inmates at the Franklin County Jail in Greenfield MA. I have led retreats in Vermont at Knoll Farm, and with the Thriving Resilient Communities Collaborative in New York and California. I have worked with children at the Agile Learning Center in Manhattan, and teens at the NorthStar Learning Center in Sunderland MA.
To nourish this work in the world, I support myself through rich, body-centered and spiritual practices, and through creativity and play. My intention for myself and my service is to remain in contact with – and surrendered to – the Field of Love.
Now, as my third decade as a facilitator / educator comes to a close, I feel how each turn of the spiral informs the vision I bring forth now. As I enter this new, fourth phase I am eager to share what I have learned to support a new generation of facilitators – changemakers to discover their own applications of Expanded Knowing.
