Certified Sage-ing Leaders Directory2018-10-03T21:16:55+00:00

Certified Sage-ing Leaders (CSLs)

The Sage-ing Leader Certification program provides participants with a thorough grounding in facilitation skills and the core concepts of Sage-ing (including Images of Aging, Life Review and Life Repair, Forgiveness, Facing Mortality and Creating Legacy).  This prepares them to present Sage-ing events in their communities in a variety of formats (talks, classes, workshops, conferences, reteats and Wisdom Circles).

As is true for all healing practitioners, CSLs  first apply “the practical work of translating theory into practice in the laboratory of their own lives.” The skills development, introspective inner work and the practice presentations working with a mentor required in the Certification program take about a year to complete. The following are a few of our leaders who have completed the certification program. For information about leaders in your area contact Jeanne Marsh.

Esther Dzialowski Amarante

Dedicated to promoting human potential, I integrate Somatic Experiencing (SE) with Family Constellations in my professional practice. SE was developed by Peter Levine, and Family Constellations, by Bert Hellinger and Idris Lahore, the founder of Libre Université du Samadeva.

I’m accredited as a Sage-ing Mentor and Spiritual Director by the Aleph Institute – Alliance for Jewish Renewal, created by Rabbi Zalman Shachter Shalomi z”l. In 2000 I founded the Kol Hacavod Group (KHCG), and I have been the General Coordinator ever since. In the KHCG we learn, practice, celebrate and spread R’ Zalman’s Sage-ing paradigm in Brazil.

For me, contributing to the growth of this paradigm is a mission, and I offer lectures and workshops in many places across the country.
