The Power of Being Present

The Power To Be

As we allow our minds to silence we allow in the possibility of presence. Ultimately power is the power to be & fully embody presence. When we are capable of experiencing that, presence acts on us & thru us. The more we experience essence the more there is a transformation of our souls’ unfoldment. It allows the optimizing force of being to overtake us, we become the servant of it - spiritual work. We need to be comfortable with not knowing because we don’t know what will come through. 

We begin to feel the power of presence -the magnificence & immensity. We see its beauty, the magic of it, its incredible dazzling effect on us. 

This weekend can be attended as a one time workshop or as part of the 6 month Learning Program. The ongoing program is an experiential Personal Process that is done in a Community with a safe holding environment. 

The actual training consists of  24 weekends, done over a 2 year period. Participants are only required to commit to 6 months at a time & then they can decide to continue or not. All participants must fill out an application to see if they are a good fit for the training.

This training will be an experiential learning experience. Participants will learn to navigate and resolve their own personal and systemic trauma issues, along with acquiring skills to work with others who have trauma.  Focus will also be given to learning to work with the activation in the nervous system, self-regulation, cultivating presence and embodiment.

Participants will also learn about Constellation Work concepts, and for experienced constellation participants, there is a  possibility to go on the facilitator track in the second year. The training will have occasional drop-in workshop participants in it.

This month's theme: Pre & Peri Natal Issues & Birth Trauma. Divine Homesickness, Vanishing Twin Syndrome
Renegotiating Early Trauma. 
Embodiment, Cultivating Presence & Bodyfulness

We will begin and end the training with working with heart qualities, before we open the trauma dynamics. The ultimate goal of the training is to reconnect to our life force that has been usurped by traumatic interruptions in our life and open the heart again to love and belonging. For more information about this training, go to Trauma Training.

The following pages on this website will also inform you of the theoretical concepts included in the training: Learning Program, Relational Constellations, SE Trauma Work, Somatic Psychology, and Sacred SoulWork

The heart often holds memories of ruptures and emotional wounds that go back several generations. This interrupts our reaching-out movement, our capacity for true intimacy and heartful relationships. Uncover disruptions and entanglements so that all parts of the self and all members of your family can find their own strength, dignity, love, and purpose. Reclaim your lost living heart. Reconnect to a more authentic part of your soul and to your deepest heart's desires.

Love is the guiding principle used for finding a resolution. Profound healing of emotional problems, family conflicts, and physical illnesses often result. We give attention to interpersonal or systemic issues like entangled love, false autonomy, and spiritual issues in general. We will use a deeply educational and creative process that nurtures your heart, soul, and creative life force, called Relational Constellations. We will access a part of the soul that provides us with insight and can activate a profound inner transformation

Constellations are a reconciling and a peace-making activity for your life and your relationships. In the moment when the soul is touched and love can flow more freely, deeply satisfying relationships can occur in your life. We ask all participants to be scent-free.

The Power of Presence & Nervous System Regulation to Navigate Trauma
 

Sometimes your heart slips into hiding, and you can disconnect from the empowerment and well-being that comes from living “heartfully.” What happened to this radiance and wholeness you were born with? The heart often holds memories of ruptures and emotional wounds that go back several generations. This interrupts our reaching-out movement, our capacity for true intimacy and heartful relationships.

With Relational Constellations, we uncover the disruptions and entanglements so that we can find strength, dignity, love, creativity, and a sense of belonging. Constellations are a reconciling and a peace-making activity for your life and your relationships. We access a part of the soul that provides us with insight and can activate a profound inner transformation. In the moment when the soul is touched and love can flow more freely, deeply satisfying relationships can occur in your life. Constellations allow for the exploration of personal issues related to illness, split-off parts of the self, growth, expansion, and creativity; profound healing of heart, body, and soul are often the result.

Come reclaim your lost living heart and reconnect to a more authentic part of your soul and to your deepest heart’s desires!

 5 Day West Coast Systemic Constellation Residential Intensive Training In Marin County

Welcome to the Annual West Coast Constellations Intensive!

http://www.westcoastconstellations.com

2018 Theme: Returning to the Full Circle…

The theme of our second Western Intensive reflects the challenges of our world today, as well as a celebration of coming back together in the West to dive deeply into ancestral healing work. In the year since we last met, Charlottesville and Houston – and all they represent in history and in our planet’s unfolding present – have been much in our minds, and much more. Where is our place in this? How can we find personal and collective healing?

Circles are a powerful metaphor in constellation work. They represent the fundamental themes of belonging and including that are central to how constellations unfold. And they reflect the fullness of life, where we see how every element contributes to the whole.

At this Intensive, we will connect with our ancestral lineages for answers to our questions about meaning, place and how to move forward. As a community of warmth, and respect, plus a bit of bravery and humor, together we will form a full circle that helps re-connect us to the greater circle that is always with us. We hope you will be part of that fullness!

What is Family & Systemic Constellations Work?

This Intensive is centered in the practice founded by Bert Hellinger, and since developed as a means of cross-generational inquiry and healing. The traumas of history linger when they can’t be fully acknowledged and dealt with at the time. That unresolved history shows up in our personal and collective pain. Through constellations work we can include all that has taken place, release what is over, and receive deep strength for our paths ahead.

We invite you to take this journey in a beautiful place, with fellow explorers, guided and supported by our world-famous faculty.

Who is this event for?

All levels of constellations experience are welcome! Whether brand new to constellations, or an experienced facilitator or trainer, the program is designed to provide ample opportunities for participants to do their personal work and/or professional learning in a safe, supportive environment. The structure of the Intensive means that the work will be customized for the learning level of the participant. For Constellation Facilitators, the 5-day residential immersion establishes a unique field that allows you to mature and advance your practice.

This gathering will be for practitioners, students and others who want to deepen their encounter with their own reality, as well as grow their skill, heal old wounds, and join together in adventuresome exploration together.

Who will be teaching?

The 2018 faculty roster comprises four well known and well loved Constellation trainers:

  • Sarah Peyton
  • JoAnne Chartrand & Dyrian Benz
  • Leslie Nipps

Please check them out on our Faculty page.

Where will the intensive be held?

The 2018 intensive will be held in San Anselmo, just north of San Francisco, at the San Francisco Theological Seminary. Please see our Venuepage for more info.

Explore the Interrupted Separating Movement To Support Healthy Individuation in Relationships:
Cultivating True Strength - To be strong without being defensive, hard or angry. 

Theme for our upcoming Weekend is: 

‘Ego strength’ has a sense of incapacity and weakness underneath it.

False strength is the strength of the ego or imitation strength.  Underlying that false strength is the fact of our separation.  There is a gap between false strength and true strength, our Essential Strength, which is an Aspect of our Essential Nature. Need to discriminate between the two. 

Strength is an energetic fullness, a full-bodied existence, fluid like lava or like blood, but it has heat to it, & expansiveness, courageous & bold.

Love and appreciation are the guiding principles used for finding good resolutions. Profound healing of heart, body, and soul are often the result.

When we bring love and respect to ourselves and our family, then love can become a healing agent in all aspects of our lives. We also explore personal issues related to illness, split-off parts of the self, growth, expansion, and creativity.

Find ways to get unstuck. Join us being together with our creative life force and living more consciously. Honor the past, cultivate more presence, and build the future. A relational constellation is a deeply educational and creative process that nurtures your heart, soul, and creative life force. This is a way to further your personal process & do it in community.

Recommended reading: The Delight of Love and Belonging by Dyrian Benz and JoAnne Chartrand.

We ask all participants to be scent-free.
