D1: Honoring the Land: Incorporating Nature into Family Constellations
Francesca Mason Boring
Beginning with honoring our ancestors, this workshop is for facilitators. A variety of constellation templates which include Nature to further understanding of our family of origin and beyond will be introduced. Supervised groups will conduct constellations following templates which are safe to introduce even in inexperienced groups. The cautions which should be observed while facilitating Nature Constellations will be taught, and the theory which supports including Nature in Constellations, (i.e. as a resource for those who are unable to perceive familial support, or who experience frozenness) will be introduced through brief lecture and teaching which is integrated into the activities. Did you ever make a mud pie? This is a workshop where you will have your hands in it. Everyone who comes to the Circle is a teacher and a healer.
