Trauma and the Field
In this experiential workshop, Stefan Jovanovic extends the phenomenological principles underlying constellation work into body-based approaches of working with the nervous system and its somatic awareness. The workshop will alternate between moments of teaching and practice.
Who is it for?
This workshop is key for anyone wishing to work with constellations. Participants must have completed (or at least have done the first three modules and two zoom sessions) of the Foundation training (or equivalent).
What you will learn/ develop.
You will learn embodied methods that draw on somatic trauma exercises, trauma-safety protocols, ways of resourcing issue-holders and representatives as well as recognising trauma-response physiologies. The focus of this new edition of the workshop, now offered in person for the first time, will be on how to work with trauma timelines using representation and narrative arcs. Stefan will focus on working with themes of personal trauma that manifest through behavioural habits and patterns, bodily symptoms and syndromes
The cost for this two-day workshop is £270.

Stefan Jovanović is a London-based queer and neurodivergent choreographer, storyteller, and the artistic director of Studio Stefan Jovanović. As a first-generation immigrant from the former republic of Yugoslavia, a country that no longer exists, and a descendent of transgenerational political persecution, his work and research explores issues of collective trauma, the creation of art that repairs ruptures of personal and archetypal identity through the creation of myth in the search for home and belonging. Stefan is trained in Family Systemic Constellations, Somatic Experiencing® and NeuroAffective Touch®, integrating these therapeutic modalities into creative practice. Creating cultural spaces for healing sits at the core of his practice and life’s work to date. In his therapeutic practice, Stefan fuses learnings from more than a decade of spiritual self-development, plant medicine, somatic sensing, voice-work, dance, bodily release, and trauma healing with visualisation techniques, touch-work, talking, and movement therapy. Stefan works extensively with LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent communities. In 2016, he assisted Dr. Peter Levine and Betsy Polatin in their workshop Trauma and the Performing Arts.
