Beginning in 2018 is the new series of Deep Learning Groups (the original Study Groups began in 2011). The 2018 series is held by 3 x weekend workshops through the year. April, August and November, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 – 16:00.
What will this space offer?
My head is bursting with the joy of the unknown. My heart is expanding a thousand fold. Rumi
These expanded systemic constellations Deep Learning Groups (formerly named Study Groups) offer an intimate space for a deepening of aware consciousness through experiential learning and embodied support and connection, through a process of shared presence.
We will explore what this word “presence” means in our lives: what is the difference in quality of the state of “being present” to that of “not being present” and how does that impact on the way we engage with ourselves and others? Through this door of awareness, we come into direct contact with the foundation that family constellations work rests upon.
We will work alternately through the day with words and with silence. Stillness and movement. Becoming aware of awareness. Deepening a listening, to our inner and our outer worlds. Sensing and feeling into the immediacy of each moment. Exploring ourselves and the spaces that we inhabit in the world. Reflecting and resting, working in dyads and triads. Moving into connection.
Feedback from former participants
I deeply appreciate the sharing of intimate journeys that goes on, the careful probing people do of themselves and the spaces between. CU
The study group meetings have been enriching and expanding. [This] way of working has brought me new ways of seeing and feeling. …..has showed me a dimension of the work which is non verbal, non thinking but sensing and resting in openness. JSR
These groups will be for those who already have some experience of constellation work (minimum requirement is prior training or attendance of at least 3 full day workshops); for constellation facilitators who are already working in the field and would like to remain connected and grounded; for deepening personal work in the field.
Our western system of intelligence began by dividing the world into equally fragmentary facts and events. It stressed the integrity of objects and the independence of ideas. It set things apart from one another, but it has always been strangely reluctant to acknowledge the existence of the spaces in between.- Gifts of Unknown Things: Lyall Watson (1976)
There will be feedback and questions after each piece of paired work, or after whatever constellation may emerge on the day. You will also be invited to bring whatever emerges from the monthly one day workshop, into these smaller Learning Groups, for reflection and deepening wisdom.
The maximum number for the group will be 10.
Together we will explore the overlaps of other ways of working creatively in the world. We will create pools of discoveries; of books and writing that moves us; of film that delights and opens up interior spaces. Together, in-between the deep dives, we will have fun exploring fiction, music and creativity. And the art of constellation work. These tools and themes will thread through the work that we will do over the coming weekends.
