It is the perfect place to take a holiday with constellations woven into the daily programme. Chris Williams will be running the workshops. (ConstellationSense.co.uk) Highly recommended!

The new Five Realms Training – A New Way of Seeing with Judith Hemming and Jutta ten Herkel, begins in June this year.

Constellation work is expanding beyond the original thinking and teaching of the last two decades. It is now widely regarded as having value in many different realms such as the body, the personal field, and the wider collective and archetypal fields. We are very excited about this new training, as it is the first of its kind in the world. To find out more and to listen to Judith Hemming talking about Five Realms click on the link above.

Back in the UK

 

As the year gets under way we would like to remind you about CSC’s up-coming workshops and courses that we hope you will enjoy.

Daan van Kampenhout is returning to London, by popular demand, to give the 2015 Centre International Guest Workshop on March 21st and 22nd: Working with Systemic Ritual.

Daan, was already a well-established teacher of Shamanism when, in the 90s, he became fascinated by the similarities and differences between shamanic work and Family Constellations. Daan and Bert Hellinger, corresponded over 18 months, and the letters Daan wrote to Bert became the ground material for Daan’s acclaimed book, ‘Images of the Soul’ published in 8 languages.

Over the following years and over hundreds of seminars world-wide, Daan went on to develop Systemic Ritual, a method, whilst strongly influenced by Family Constellations and Shamanism is individual and independent with its own distinct shape and theoretical foundation. During the workshop Daan will teach and demonstrate how to use ritual, constellation and shamanic practice to make healing interventions, often combining the representation method of constellations with practical shamanic knowledge about the nature of the soul.

Daan being interviewed about Shamanic Ritual (2012): http://daanvankampenhout.com/en/

Daan has 8 books published in 10 languages, including the renowned ‘The Tears of the Ancestors’.

Working with Trauma with Judith Hemming (13 – 14 March 2015)
A 2-day workshop to learn how to recognise and work with trauma in the client and in the family system. The teachings will look at methods of working with groups, individuals and trauma theory. Understanding this work is essential for people wanting to work safely and ethically in this field.

The new Five Realms Training – A New Way of Seeing with Judith Hemming and Jutta ten Herkel, will begin in June this year.
Constellation work is expanding beyond the original thinking and teaching of the last two decades. It is now widely regarded as having value in many different realms such as the body, the personal field, and the wider collective and archetypal fields. We are very excited about this new training, as it is the first of its kind in the world.

If you are thinking of joining the course, this is a reminder that the early bird discount ends on 31st January.

BOOK REVIEW

Family Constellations-Unravelling the Mystery of Your Ancestral Timeline. By Rafe Nauen. Reviewed by Andrea Spencer.

Rafe Nauen’s Family Constellations – Unravelling the Mystery of Your Ancestral Timeline is a concise explanation of constellation work. It dispels any mysteries that surround constellation work, and uses simple, jargon-free language to introduce the work to new-comers as well as those who have some understanding and wish to learn more about the work.

Personally I found the simple layout of the chapters easy to follow as they are self-explanatory and well titled. This makes the book clear and informative. The personal stories that are included in the book, illustrate the methodology and encourage empathy and understanding.

I look forward to reading more about constellation work and how it can be used outside family relationships in work situations.
