Systems Constellations, including Family Constellations and Organisational Constellations, is a powerful therapeutic process that seeks to reveal hidden familial or collective dynamics impacting current experiences and relationships. Often a system may be out of balance due to exclusions, historical trauma or energetic entanglements that cause disorder or dysfunction. When these hidden dynamics - which may be trans-generational - are revealed, it may offer pathways to acceptance, healing and healthier functioning. The effects of trauma can become powerful forces that weaken a system’s health. As balance is restored those patterns that bring new creative life and energy must therefore be strengthened. On this retreat we will look to reveal and include these life-giving, creative forces in the constellating process. Expect a combination of systems constellating - learning about healing from trauma-related symptoms, creative art-making and reflection with time to restore and nourish ourselves.
A typical constellation takes place in a workshop setting made up of a group of unrelated participants. Participants represent members or aspects of the system being constellated and through this representation, dynamics can be revealed and released, and healthier patterns can be included.
