The theme of our first Western Intensive reflects that it is our first time having this event on this side of the country. It also reflects what’s special about an INTENSIVE — it’s about:
- going deeply,
- taking risks,
- making new connections, and
- having a profound experience of being part of a learning community.
We hope this Intensive reflects what is unique about our region: its beauty, spirituality, history and contribution to human development. And, as we honor our history, we look toward our personal and collective futures — what is emerging, and what wants to become new in our own lives?
All levels of Constellations experience are welcome!
This gathering is for all practitioners and students of Systemic Constellation Work who want to:
- deepen their encounter with their own ancestral and social systems,
- grow their skill
- heal old wounds, and
- join together in adventuresome exploration together.
Whether you are a brand new to Constellations, or you are an experienced facilitator or trainer, this program is designed for learning, growing, feedback, and discovery.
- For participants who set up their own personal Constellations, they will find a safe, supportive environment.
- For Constellation facilitators, this residential immersion establishes a unique field that allows you to mature and advance your practice.
Some may ask: How can we have an event for all levels of constellation experience? Good question! Participants will be assigned to Cohort Circles with others who are at their same level of experience where they can dive deeply in a way that matches how much they already know about constellations. For more information, go to Cohort Circles. For any other questions about how this works, please contact us.
On the faculty roster so far are three well known and well loved Constellation trainers:
- Francesca Mason Boring
- Gary Stuart
- Leslie Nipps
Please check them out on our Faculty page.
Are you feeling at all anxious about what’s going on the world today? We hope that this Intensive will be both a retreat – so that we can care for ourselves and take a step back – and also a place where we can be in community and explore some of what’s important in the larger world. This is an important time for shared social issues in the US, and we will be finding time as a community to gently and with curiosity to explore and seek hope.
The intensive will be held in Los Gatos, CA just south of San Jose, at the Presentation Center
