Constellations & Rituals

Constellations focus on the information, the relationships and the flow emerging from the "field" (family, collective, ancestors, inner parts, organizations, etc.).  What, in regards to the issue, needs to be seen?  What needs to be acknowledged behind and/or integrated?

Research points out that constellation work (as well as psychotherapy and counseling) fulfills similar purposes and functions like rituals, especially rituals of transition.

We find rituals in all human societies.  Depending on the culture, they vary in their world-view, interpretation, and symbolism.  What they all have in common:  they are structured.  These structures provide the holding space necessary for change processes.  Also, the rituals of the transition offer resources for healing and, encourage strength and invite steps toward a new perspective.

The workshop will be an interplay between constellations and different ritualistic structures.  Depending on the issues of the participants, we will explore the universal formulation of the wheel and/or structures in lines and polarities or circles (like ancestor circles).  The combination of these clear structures with resources and open process work can be powerful providing healing impulses on different levels.

NECSC Presents

A Two-Day Workshop:

Ericksonian Hypnotherapy

In this hands-on Ericksonian workshop, participants will learn Ericksonian approaches to hypnosis.  Participants will be able to create a trance using the Ericksonian Method of inducing hypnosis and altered states of consciousness.  In addition, they will be taught aspects Of NLP (nerolinguistic programming) as they show up in the work.

Topics to be covered include (all topics will include demo and practice):

  • Eye roll technique

  • Self-hypnosis

  • Pacing

  • Yes set

  • Fairytale model

  • Aspects of NLP

  • Talking to the unconscious

Participants should be able to do an Ericksonian induction with their clients. This leads to states that are more amenable to changing psychotherapy and counseling.
