Description of 2019 Event…

In a culture that feels increasingly fragmented and divided, with challenges that invite us into the most serious action and commitment, we long to feel connected, supported, and open to each other in our diversity. To really be there for ourselves and each other.

Healing can be defined as bringing together parts that have been separated. We move from a kind of fragmentation that happens in the face of great strife, whether in communities or within the individual soul, to the reparation that naturally occurs when we commit to truly seeing one another — and ourselves — with compassion.

At this five day Family Constellations retreat in beautiful Santa Cruz, CA, USA, we will joyfully, bravely and tenderly explore this healing work. Our theme this year, A Call To Optimism: From Isolation to Resilience, is an invitation to rediscover the power of the shared space in which all are welcome and to rise up to declare the full force of love. It is an invitation to walk in the company of caring others as we seek out the wisdom of our ancestors to move forward more boldly and in greater unity.

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.

If you are new to constellations work, go to our What are constellations? page to find out more. 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?

This event is for:

  • People longing for resolution of some deep patterns of sadness, guilt, anger or fear, and suspect connecting with your ancestors might be what you need.
  • Seekers of all types, curious about growing in wisdom and love, and intrigued by new approaches.
  • Constellation “fans” who enjoy the idea of deep-diving for five days into this beautiful and soul-stirring work.
  • Constellation facilitators and trainers who are looking for new approaches to the work, and who want to up-level their practice.
  • Admirers of Sarah, Peter and Suzi, who know their fine work, and want to work with them more!
