This comprehensive program is unique as it moves away from the traditional master and apprentice style of teaching systemic work to creating a Learning Laboratory together. As educators (inspired and mentored by Dr Jane Peterson) we have broken Systemic Constellation facilitation down into principles, working with people and practice. Furthermore we have broken down what you can see in the chair, and on the floor through reading people, attachment styles, permission in the soma and much more.
A new and exciting program that demystifies systemic constellation work. This highly interactive and experiental program ensures students learn how to read the client’s body, understand the Orders presenting themselves and what each system needs to initiate a primary movement towards openness, support and love again and inline with the clients intention. These tools ensure students as facilitators discover how easy it is to access systemic information quickly and clearly with astonishing results.
