2018 Theme: Returning to the Full Circle…

The theme of our second Western Intensive reflects 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 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 will connect 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 will form 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!

What is Family & Systemic Constellations Work?

This Intensive is centered in the practice founded by Bert Hellinger, and since developed as a means of cross-generational inquiry and healing. The traumas of history linger when they can’t be fully acknowledged and dealt with at the time. That unresolved history shows up in our personal and collective pain. Through constellations work we can include all that has taken place, release what is over, and receive deep strength for our paths ahead.

We invite you to take this journey in a beautiful place, with fellow explorers, guided and supported by our world-famous faculty.

Who is this event for?

All levels of constellations experience are welcome! Whether brand new to constellations, or an experienced facilitator or trainer, the program is designed to provide ample opportunities for participants to do their personal work and/or professional learning in a safe, supportive environment. The structure of the Intensive means that the work will be customized for the learning level of the participant. For Constellation Facilitators, the 5-day residential immersion establishes a unique field that allows you to mature and advance your practice.

This gathering will be for practitioners, students and others who want to deepen their encounter with their own reality, as well as grow their skill, heal old wounds, and join together in adventuresome exploration together.
