1. Morning Activity (Optional)–Participant Led

Do you lead a practice that would make a good morning activity? Yoga, tai-chi, sunrise walks, meditation, or something else? Let us know what you would like to lead and share.

2. Morning Constellation Gathering with Faculty Reflections

Each morning will begin with a short faculty talk on the theory, practice or history of Constellation work, followed by a large group Constellation exercise. Large group constellations might include welcoming the land, as well as addressing social issues that are of interest to the group. The goal will be to connect the group and to go on adventure with each other with our personal and global concerns. And to have fun!

3. Morning and Afternoon Sessions: Cohort Circles

All participants will be assigned to a Cohort Circle with whom they will learn and travel during the entire Intensive. Faculty will rotate through leading each group so that all participants will be able to work with all of the faculty. This builds a sense of group safety and trust that allows us to go very deeply into our work.

Although we will assign participants roughly by their experience level, all Cohort Circles will have the following activities and goals:

  1. Individual and group growth, evolution, and exploration as participants represent in constellations led by the faculty.
  2. Group learning facilitated by the faculty and each other (peer learning).
  3. Reflection on constellation experiences as a means for deeper engagement.
  4. Different ways of doing constellations together as a way to pursue diverse healing movements and learning.
  5. Discussion, questions and reflection together on the work.
  6. For those who want and who are experienced facilitators, the opportunity to facilitate under the guidance and mentoring of the faculty.

Because of these group goals, we ask that all participants agree to the following guidelines.

Cohort Group Guidelines:

  1. Participants agree to hold confidentiality and support each other in creating a safe space for the work, offering and respecting each other’s vulnerability.
  2. Participants take care of themselves, respecting the needs of the entire group as well as their own, and ask for what they need.
  3. Participants engage the process in a spirit of inquiry and adventure.
  4. Participants who ask to facilitate must have experience as facilitators.
  5. Participants are willing to explore personal issues under the leadership of the faculty and other experienced facilitator/participants.
  6. Participants who agree to facilitate accept constructive feedback with an open mind and offer it to others with honesty and kindness.

4. Morning Constellation Workshops

The faculty will offer constellation workshops on a variety of topics for deeper inquiry into and practice of different areas of constellations work. They will be rich constellation experiences on various themes. Registrants will make workshop choices when they arrive on-site.

5. Open Space Gatherings (Optional) – Participant Led

The evenings are devoted to constellations, workshops, conversations, presentations, music, dance or other offerings. We want what you have to offer! Space will be available based on upon the interest of participants. This is a great time for budding facilitators to try something new. Open Space is organized on site, but we would love to hear about your offerings in advance.

Certificate of Attendance

A Certificate of Attendance will be issued to all participants as part of their Intensive fees. It is the responsibility of each participant to limit the application of this approach to those clients and situations for which he or she has the appropriate qualifications. This Intensive does not qualify participants to practice psychotherapy or constitute a certification to practice Constellations.

Continuing Education Credit (CEUs)

Regrettably, due to stringent California CEU certification policies, we are unable to offer them at this time. If that changes, we will inform you. If you are interested in CEUs, please let us know!
