The Body as Home

What does embodiment really mean?  We are offering this very unique three day course to give you a chance to begin a new relationship with your body, and to explore what prevents us from deeply engaging with our bodily wisdom, the deeper story of our life force. Our body is the home for our soul, and the soul tells its story through the body.  And yet we sometimes disconnect from the body, and thereby lose touch with the soul’s messages. 

Who is it for?

This course is for those wishing to gain a fuller understanding, from a systemic constellation perspective, of the issues and concerns that they may have in their everyday life – this may be personal, familial or professional. No previous experience of or training in systemic constellation work required.


What will your learn/develop?

This course will be evocative, rather than didactic. Traditionally in constellations we work with the body through symptoms and health issues.  In this course we will be looking at the realm of the body as the fundamental ground of our being. We will journey from shame to befriending; from isolation to inclusion, from rejection to acceptance. As we bring awareness to our body, we will gain an appreciation of the triumph of life passed on to us; a sense of our life force, energy, wider field; and of the divine intention of our soul within this body.
