Family Constellations Training

This Family Constellations Training builds on the Constellations Growth Group, which is actually year one of the training. Having had the chance to delve deeply into the theory and principles of constellations, and to expand their own self knowledge in the Growth Group, participants can choose to continue on to year two and become trained as constellation facilitators. The objectives for year two are similar to year one with one major difference - the primary focus on learning to facilitate several types of constellations. To learn more, click here.

Equine Assisted Constellations: Playing in the Knowing Field with Horses

Back by popular demand, this is the second event this summer where we spend a day in the 'field of the horse,' first getting to know how they live in the field (meaning the Knowing Field, not only the hayfield), and then having a chance to experience the deepened resonance of doing constellations with our equine friends.  The horses lend their exquisitely tuned ability to perceive energy to the work we do, and the heightened clarity of that results can bring profound results to the humans who come with questions they'd like to explore on that day.

The Practice of Family Constellations for Personal and Professional Growth

Katherine M. Curran, Ph.D

Family and Systemic Constellations is an indigenously inspired practice that was initially developed by a German ex-priest and psychotherapist named Bert Hellinger, from personal experiences with Zulu tribes people in South Africa.Constellations reveal a ‘life image’ of unconscious dynamics in a family, organizational, or social system. Through having participants represent elements in a system, a constellation can display relationships, entanglements and connections between people in a family, or people and/or functions in an organization or social system that we would not be aware of otherwise. We live the symptoms of entangled dynamics through patterns we create and recreate to our detriment - even over generations - with greater or lesser degrees of pain and/or unhappiness.

Constellations expand and change our sense of the ground of an issue so that we see the figure in a fuller, more meaningful light. They show what is out of order that leads to these symptoms, and by revealing this allow a healthier, more functional order to be established. Two distinguishing traits of this method are that it allows us to access and heal patterns created in earlier generations (i.e., transgenerational trauma), and that it does this through drawing on information available in an expanded sense of ‘the field’ as first described by Kurt Lewin. In this intensive, participants will learn the basics of constellations, have opportunities to either work on personal or professional issues, to represent in others’ constellations, and to debrief the experiences from a Gestalt point of view.

All My Relations Constellations

to May 12

All My Relations Constellations

A transformational walk with the family soul . . .

Family systems constellations reveal those places where one suffers out of loyalty to the challenges, wounds and fears of the past in the system.  Being disconnected from our lineage, land and stories, many modern souls are searching for the inclusion which is so often found in a simple movement in the Circle. Walking with the ancestors, we will introduce respect, and the incorporation of ancient healing wisdom traditions and ritual in life and systems constellations.

In this workshop, participants will:

•Be introduced to family system constellation work

•Be encouraged to consider the family system dynamics in their own background, including the orders of love, the role of the ancestors in healing and victim/perpetrator dynamics

•Experience a constellation, either their own, standing in as a representative, or as an observer.

Francesca Mason Boring, is an enrolled member of the Shoshone Nation, an aboriginal tribe in the US.  She has been trained in Family Constellations by many of the original masters in constellation work through out the world.

She has facilitated workshops/trainings throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Italy, Singapore, Australia, Bulgaria and South Africa.

Mason Boring serves on the advisory board of and writes for The Knowing Field, the journal for constellation work and has authored six books, most recently Family & Systems Constellations: In the Company of Good People.

Systems Theory in Org Development vs. Systemic Thinking in Org Constellations: What's the Difference?

Mother's Song, Father's Tune: Live Your Own Dance Constellation Workshop, with Susan Altschwager

In family constellations, exploring what we have received from our parents is some of the most important, basic healing work we can do. Our parents have the most influence on us, seeming to show us how much life is ours to have, who we believe we are, where we fit into the world, and how to connect with life. Entanglements in family dynamics can result in relationship difficulties between parents, partners, children and siblings. They can contribute to pain, addictions, depression, and physical and mental health issues.
