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 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.
Get in touch
If you have something you would like to tell us about then do get in touch – but please note that we wont be using this space to promote workshops or individuals as practitioners. Instead, we have created a living map, in which you are invited, as a member of the community, to make your mark.
There are two possibilities – you can simply register your place in the community, or if you are working with systemic constellations and meet our requirements (please download the criteria), then we would be delighted if you would like to promote your practice. We do not list individual workshops as this would create unsustainable on-going administration, but we are happy to list you as a constellator. There is a small admin fee for this that covers the time required to process your application.
We would love to hear from you.
Gaye, Ed and Chris (Directors)
