The Death and Reclamation of God: Working with Meaning – May 2020

May 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - June 3, 2020 @ 12:30 pm

One of the questions constellations seekers ask is about having their connection with higher power restored. How can we work effectively in constellations with the traumas and events that sever people’s sense of belonging to this life? What are the supportive forms and rituals that take our seekers toward their longings? What do we need to do for ourselves to have the clarity and groundedness that most supports this kind of work?

Please note: this event is part of a masterclass series. If you’d like to attend all 4 masterclasses for a discount of over $900, please visit the link.

Participants will:

  • Work with the elements of relational neuroscience that help us understand the brain and spirituality, and how to bring these elements to life in constellations
  • Explore the constellations forms and rituals that invite us into this question
  • Do small group work to ground self-knowing in this area

Workshop Format 

This event is an in-person retreat/intensive that stretches over 5 calendar days, starting with dinner on day one, an evening session, three days of work from 9am until 9pm, and then a completion morning session on day 5, ending with lunch.

Each day we alternate between short lectures on neuroscience and constellation concepts with mini-constellations to explore and practice the concepts, and then we do large group constellations. If you’re a visual learner you can imagine small islands of didactic learning, surrounded by slightly larger islands of small-group learning, and then interspersed with large, full-group constellations.

The large group constellations are alternately run by Sarah and by student constellators (participants in the masterclass series) with Sarah’s support.

Both being a facilitator and being a seeker happen by lottery, with weight given to the number of sessions attended, thus not all participants will have a chance to be a seeker or a facilitator.

For those participants with US passports, you may have the opportunity to participate in a constellations session at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (a women’s prison south of Portland, Oregon) before the workshop begins when Coffee Creek permits this, at no charge to participants.

This event is part of a year-long Masterclass Series which allows for constellation facilitators to deeply integrate relational neuroscience into constellation facilitation, and to have new learning about how to leverage solid understanding about how brains work and how we heal from trauma into traditional constellation work, even if the relational neuroscience is never explicitly referenced with clients.

This workshop includes a special hearing assistance system from Listen Technologies with individual headphones for any participant that desires to use them.
