What you will learn/develop
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 day will alternate between moments of teaching and practice. 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. Other topics covered will include the establishing of boundaries within the role of representation and the understanding of trauma timelines within the narrative arc of a constellation

An Important Point About the Course
Please note: This course is run as a learning group. However, the teaching material can sometimes be triggering of our own personal issues. Whilst every attempt is made to hold a safe, contained and nurturing learning environment, students are required to respect the Learning Contract of the group and recognise that this is not a therapy or process group where personal issues can be attended to.
If we feel that your personal issues are overwhelming in such a way that the learning of the group is affected, we reserve the right to ask you to leave the group. It may be possible to repeat any missed modules on a later course.
We do recommend that all students have some form of on-going support in place (such as therapy, supervision, mentoring, coaching or spiritual work) for the duration of the course. Please speak to your tutor should you need any help with this
Stefan Jovanović is a queer Slavic storyteller, performance-maker and therapist. Initially trained as an architect, he later established a career in the performing arts and trained in Family Systemic Constellations and Somatic Experiencing®, integrating therapeutic modalities into his artistic practice. His stage work explores ideas of radical togetherness, systemic inclusion and ancestral trauma through a maximalist aesthetic that combines sculpture, ceremony, dance and design. Creating cultural spaces for healing sits at the core of his practice. In his therapeutic practice, Stefan fuses learnings from a decade of spiritual self-development, plant medicine, somatic sensing, voice-work, dance, body release, and trauma healing with visualisation techniques, touch, 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.
