2018 West Coast Systemic Constellations Intensive a Beautiful Success!

Thank you to everyone who came to our beautiful event in San Anselmo, May 30th–June 3rd, 2018. We gathered for the second time as a community and dove even more deeply into the field of constellations together. We can’t wait until next year!

2018 Theme: Returning to the Full Circle…

The theme of our second Western Intensive reflected the challenges of our world today, as well as a celebration of coming back together in the West to dive deeply into ancestral healing work. In the year since we last met, Charlottesville and Santa Barbara, Puerto Rico and Houston—and all they represent in history and in our planet’s unfolding present—have been much in our minds, and much more. Where is our place in this? How can we find personal and collective healing?

Circles are a powerful metaphor in constellation work. They represent the fundamental themes of belonging and including that are central to how constellations unfold. And they reflect the fullness of life, where we see how every element contributes to the whole.

At this Intensive, we connected with our ancestral lineages for answers to our questions about meaning, place and how to move forward. As a community of warmth, and respect, plus a bit of bravery and humor, together we formed a full circle that helps re-connect us to the greater circle that is always with us. We hope you will be part of that fullness next year!
