20th & 21st of May: Systemic Constellations Workshop

‘Radical inclusion, entering the knowing field’

With Charlie Stevens Hdip, MA, SIAHIP and Marianne Gabriel MA UKCP

Constellations can be used not only to see the effects and possible resolution of hidden family dynamics but also to explore issues such as the systemic causes of illness, the blockages in business development, your relationship to money or those people with whom you struggle. There are many applications of this most powerful method.

This phrase ‘The knowing field’ was coined by Dr Albrecht Mahr, psychiatrist, constellator and meditator. When we enter the constellations as a participant or witness we become aware of a type of knowing that may not be cognitive, logical or magical but always reveals a truth in a certain deep and often emotional way. This knowing field enables us to witness and feel the underlying energetics of a system, be it a family, organisational ,our own body or other type of constellation. From there we can make some movements that will create a new image and dynamic within the system. For example we can see the necessity to include the excluded members of a family or the role of symptoms in illness or what is preventing healthy growth. Often a resolution emerges which can have a deep and lasting effect on all parts the system.

Marianne will be holding movement and awareness practice before and in between constellations. ‘The anatomy and the creative way I work with body/mind has arrived through a synthesis drawn from many different approaches. Its starting point is from the felt-sense of a need to follow the body’s desire to move and thus allow its own natural movement as a way of healing and retrieving and reclaiming the forgotten, hidden neglected parts. Often what shows up is our creative fire, or our watery flow, our pleasure or in the words of the poet Mary Oliver a calling back to our “one wild and passionate life” Here my intention is to create a safe and protective space where we can feel more ease and space in our bodies, breathe a little deeper and connect to our primordial life force re-connecting to our true wild and nourishing nature.’
