Embracing the Past, Trusting the Future, Standing Strong in the Present
How easy it would be to recoil in fear and anger in the face of the current challenges that we face as individuals, as communities, as human beings. Our theme this year invites the opposite: to rise up in optimism — not sugar-coated, but bold and courageous. To “embrace the past,” allowing its lessons to penetrate and its successes to be carried confidently forward. To “trust the future,” claiming our responsibility and our ability to plant seeds of reconciliation both in our personal lives and in the wider spheres. To “stand strong in the present,” tirelessly uncovering the light even in the darkest places, falling in love with the world again and again.
We, as a team, are so pleased and privileged to share Constellation work in its many vocabularies with participants in this circle. We meet again, having further honed our individual voices, and committed to honoring the teacher and student in one another and in you. The central tenet of Constellations is inclusion: unity as we understand it is not a singularity but a combination of wildly divergent threads brought together in a deep, beautiful, and enduring tapestry.
All Levels of Constellations Experience Welcome
Whether brand new to Constellations, or an experienced facilitator or trainer, the program is designed to provide ample opportunities for participants to set up their own personal Constellations in a safe, supportive environment. For Constellation Facilitators, the 5-day residential immersion establishes a unique field that allows you to mature and advance your practice.
Systemic Constellations allow you to clear generational trauma and feel the love that inhabits and surrounds you in an entirely new way. Working in small groups led by our world-class faculty each person in turn takes a fresh look at a particular issue of their choosing. Together, we go deep into a 5-day journey of intimacy, deep learning, laughter, tears, new connections and new possibilities for the future calling us forward.
Participants report a greater sense of aliveness, feeling grounded and expansive, filled with humility and awe, and empowered to do their work in the world. More details about the Intensive Program can be found here.
Outstanding Faculty and Guest Presenters
Our faculty are among the most skilled and accomplished Constellations Facilitators and Trainers in the US. Ed Lynch, Francesca Mason Boring, Dan Cohen, Bill Mannle and Emily Blefeld represent the richness and depth of experience and innovation in the Family and Systemic Constellations community. Each year, with their guidance and in co-creation with guest presenters and participants, we create a sacred circle in which profound shifts occur. Through Constellation work, we experience the support of our ancestors, and a deep connection with the Earth and Life. More details about the Intensive Faculty can be found here.
Professional Continuing Education Credits Pending
This program is currently pending approval for Continuing Educations Credit Hours from the National Association of Social Workers (CT), the continuing education criteria for CT Social Work Licensure renewal, and the Connecticut Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (CTAMFT). Attendees outside of CT must contact their state licensing board to determine if these Continuing Education Credits fulfill their states’ requirements for licensure renewal.
We gather in Open Space every evening: self-organized constellations, workshops, conversations, presentations, music, dance or other offerings. This is an opportunity to share your gifts and wisdom with each other, to make lasting connections, and to nurture the bonds of community.
Whether you look forward to the Intensive as an annual event or have only recently discovered Constellations, we invite you to join us in Connecticut!
