Systemic Constellation day- 3rd February 2018 in Brussels

Our happiness, we are told, depends above all on our hard work, our intentions and thoughts. In short, everyone is “the maker of his own fate” and the responsibility for it rests on our own shoulders.

But what if it weren’t entirely this way? What if, despite trying with clear intent and working really hard, some old unsatisfactory patterns keep on occurring over and over again-with no solution in sight? Both in the professional or private life.

Again you come across a choleric boss, or again you were left by your partner. Again the family reunion ends in a quarrel.

A systemic constellation can be helpful here. Through a constellation it is possible to uncover the real and in many cases very moving underlying motives for your thoughts and actions. You are herewith able to recognise the extent to which you have contributed yourself to the situations, as well as the deeper meaning of the problem or crisis. Furthermore, and decisively, a constellation offers an understanding of the inner posture that can lead to a lasting solution.

Systemic constellation work is based on the assumption that all members of a family are interconnected over generations, regardless of whether these ties are reflected on the outside or not.
In this way, positive but also negative patterns of life and behaviours in families are often passed on unconsciously over generations and can be perpetuated. In particular, severe fates and tragic events (e. g. accidents, suicide, war) often have an effect over generations. It is, however, rarely apparent at first glance that a current, burdensome condition is linked to this.

Present day issues that you’d like to work on can be:
-family issues
-relationships (or the lack thereof)
-difficulties in the workplace
-illnesses
and many more themes

Procedure of a constellation
First of all, the request of the client is clarified. For this the client is invited to specifically name dramatic events in his/her family system. Then the client constellates the difficult situation with the help of representatives. The individual representatives are positioned in the room, all looking in a particular direction, at a certain distance from each other. Here often the representatives have distinct sensations and symptoms. Now, with the help of the representatives, many things can be unveiled and put into a healing place, following a systemic order that conveys utmost respect for everyone involved.

This weekend we work in a group of about 5-10 people.
No previous knowledge is required for these seminars.

A Return to Love- The Work that Reconnects- 9th-11th March 2018

How to heal our hearts and minds in these times of turmoil? It seems with the ongoing madness of global social and ecological destruction the urgency to do so is ever greater.

Wherever you look living systems are in crisis. In the animal and plant kingdom, family systems, immune systems, school and political systems, (the list goes on endlessly) …with inevitable repercussions to our inner emotional world. It seems that as this earth is pushed to its ultimate limits, so are we.

Needless to say that all of this is incredibly stressful and exhausting. It’s just really hard to keep up with who is bombing who and at the same time worry about the shrinking habitat of polar bears, while making sure that we are making a living and meeting all our deadlines. In all this there is no time to rest and no time to think about what we really should be doing with our limited time on earth. And yet, we are suffering the constant awareness of what is going on. This can be a very lonely and frightening place.

We therefore need to return. Return to love. For ourselves and for this beautiful broken earth.

Never before has the need been greater to stand up for life. For ourselves and future generations (both are inherently linked). We need to start by healing ourselves and come to a greater place of compassion. From there we can reach out. In this spirit I invite you to this unique workshop in the middle of nature

Here you can be inspired, rest, replenish and refuel.You will be given avenues to reconnect with yourself, heal, and find ways that are meaningful and feasible for yourself to help shift this global Titanic around. You will be catered for with the delicious local organic vegan food, which means these are also detox days. Each one of us has unique talents and aspirations, even if they are dormant and hidden. In this workshop, based on Joanna Macy’s work, you will be guided through different exercises that help you reconnect with your self, life and the world at large. Through individual and group exercises, indoors and outdoors, you will be invited to connect to nature and the nature of life.
