Where ideas can be learnt, shared and applied.
CSC Position Statement 2021
As Covid-19 restrictions continue into 2021, we feel it is appropriate to provide a CSC Position Statement for our community.
Whilst 2020 was in so many ways a dark and challenging time for us all, at CSC our experience of having to adapt and change in order to address the prevailing circumstances shone a light that has revealed some great benefits too. As a result we have decided to continue to integrate elements of online learning in all of our forthcoming offers, although we are of course very much looking forward to the days when we can return to face to face training too.
The necessity of online learning has meant that:
– Location is no longer a constraint to inclusion, and we are able to welcome students from all around the world. This has increased cultural diversity and the wisdom that comes from different and shared experience in our groups
– The need to develop new ways of teaching and learning has brought energy and insight that has in many ways benefitted our programs.
– We found that the flexibility and openness required by a phenomenological approach was enhanced by the online experience. Students have developed a confidence and self-reliance that supports innovative and dynamic ways of working
– Our 2020 students formed online practice groups where the whole group were able to meet regularly, this increased the holding experience and deepened group connection and cohesion – contrary to what we had imagined
– The environmental impact of travelling to modules was lessened, which is particularly important right now
At CSC we are aware of the profound need for a systemic, inter-connected understanding of our world. We recognise that our own health and wellbeing is inseparable from the whole – this includes the environmental, social, familial, trans-generational, spiritual, cultural, political and economic impact of everything around us. This of course is the foundation of Constellation Work.
There has never been a greater need to understand how to work with the natural laws that underpin the global health and wellbeing of all. The place of Constellation Work is undeniably important at this time, and we are committed to continue to train, to the highest standards established in our school over the past 20 years, all those who wish to come and bring this understanding to their lives.

Absolutely brilliant quality of teaching and facilitation. I feel enriched both personally and professionally. From halfway through the course I felt more equipped and confident to incorporate systemic thinking into my clinical practice.
I went through a profound change during the course. It enabled me to become rounder, weightier, clearer, calmer and just simply more authentic. The teaching opened new ways of seeing, becoming more kind to myself and others.
One of the best courses I have ever experienced. The strongest experience for me was the way I felt with others – safe, accepted, seen, heard…
The teaching as always for me is excellent. The exercises are always brilliant and new and innovative. During every exercise, something shifted for me.
It was an amazing journey for me personally and professionally. It was great to see different styles and approaches of Systemic Constellation Facilitators and think what I can take into my own practice.
