A Selection of Past Workshops & Seminars
22 April 2023 - Roots of Family Constellations Workshop
This workshop continues the themes developed in the Ancestral constellations process, exploring the 'deep roots' of your family tree. The process looks at your current family relationships and the ancestors who are still connected to the family system, through memories and sometimes through the burdens that we may be carrying on their behalf. As we return to in-person workshops after the COVID pandemic, we can see a return to a more 'normal' life. But something deep and profound has occurred, the veil has been lifted, and there is a renewed sense of urgency for many in reconnecting with their ancestors.
ISCA Presentation - Ancestral Constellations a Diaspora Perspective
Seminar at ISCA 2021 Online Conference (International Systemic Constellations Association) After a decade of systemic constellations learning and training, it is clear that there are gaps in knowledge and resources for systemic and family constellation practitioners, ’all of we’ that are interested in Transgenerational Black Lives. The inequality and social justice issues that are being discussed in the public domain, raise questions about transgenerational health and wellbeing. And I believe that the systemic constellations field has much to offer Black and Brown communities, but they have been slow to find their way to this powerful healing modality.

12-13 September Radical Inclusion an Online Constellations Workshop
8 February 2020 - Mapping Communities Constellations Workshop
In these workshops, we will look at mapping community systems from different perspectives to reveal hidden dynamics and possible places for movement and healing. Using the systemic constellations approach, we aim to go beyond the boundaries of conversations that often fall back into a similar binary loop. How can we talk about Black and White dynamics in a different way? How do we explore the continuum of gender? In what way can we speak about White privilege and denial without the conversation being hijacked by guilt and blame?
30 November 2019 - The Roots of Family Constellations Workshop
‘The Roots of Family Constellations workshop' will be held on 30 November. It is an opportunity to explore the ‘roots’ of the family constellations method, drawing on the African wisdom embedded within the process. A personal constellation reveals your ‘living family tree. You will explore your network of family relationships, your cultural identity and your place of belonging in the family. It is both a ‘step’ into family research and a re-connection with your ancestors.
