An important note about how this workshop runs…
This is an experiential workshop in which everyone will participate the process of Constellation Work. I prefer to work with the original single-fee system in my workshops as this way of working feels both more supportive and more aligned with the philosophy of the work than monetarizing a constellation by charging more.
During the two days together we will include about 10 or 12 constellations plus possibly guided meditation, shamanic exercises and discussion. Those who feel ready to do a piece of work are invited to raise their hand. If, on the second day, there are more people who wish to do a piece of work than there seems time for, names will be put into a hat.
Please be clear that the opportunity to present your own issue is likely, but not guaranteed. However, my consistent experience, over 25 years, has shown me that all those present in the group will, in one way or another, have an equally powerful experience. Whether you have brought the issue, actively participated as a representative, or held the space for the work in the outer circle, each constellation offers profound insight and opportunities for everyone in developing new perspectives and clarity on aspects of our own lives. We will of course all reflect on each piece of work together at the end.

Gaye Donaldson is a constellations practitioner and registered BACP counsellor, who has worked in the community and the private sector. She became a student of systemic constellations in 1994, training extensively in both family and organisational constellations in the UK and abroad. She has worked as a facilitator and trainer of the work since 2005. Gaye is the Managing Director of the Centre for Systemic Constellations (http://www.thecsc.net) and is on the teaching faculty for both the Foundation and Professional Trainings. She also works with the constellation approach in film and theatre, and is a trainer for ‘ Healing the Wounds of History’, an organisation that brings new perspectives to conflict resolution in the Middle East. Gaye is a mother and grandmother and lives in Bruton, Somerset.
Dawn Eagle Woman is a profound healer and facilitator. Guided by the feminine creative spirit, she draws on her own deep spiritual experience and a vast array of knowledge, ranging from the Arts to Psychoanalytic Theory, Spiritual Psychology, Shamanic Healing and Divination. Dawn studied Jungian psychology and religion for many years and holds an AA, BFA, and MFA in Fine Arts, and in 1997 received her Doctor of Divinity. She has been a dance instructor and taught sculpture at the University of Wyoming. Since 1994 she devotes all her time to healing. Dawn’s hands were activated by a near-death experience at the age of 25, and her path as a healer has taken her through many levels of refinement. She was given the name Dawn Eagle Woman, Ahnpo Wambli Win, in 1982, by a Medicine Man, Tate Wakapa Wambli. In 1994 she was honored by the Hopi Princess and given the name Kwaahu Wiwti, White Eagle. Dawn has also trained with Bert and Sophie Hellinger in systemic constellations.
Systemic Constellations offer a methodology that enables us to explore what’s needed and helpful for a healing movement or resolution to occur in complex or sometimes seemingly intractable personal issue that arise from family, relationship, career or existential and spiritual difficulties. At the workshop we will discuss the principles and practices that support our wellbeing in the various groups (or ‘systems’) to which we belong. We will learn about the systemic forces that underpin healthy, loving connection and then, through the process of observing or participating in a Constellation, we will experience how key events and traumas (which often include issues from previous generations) influence us and may even have led to ‘entanglements’ or ‘hidden loyalties’ that affect our life today.
What is a constellation?
A constellation begins with a conversation in which the difficulty is presented and the hopes for resolution are identified. The participant is then asked to select group members to represent elements of the system under consideration. Aspects represented are typically individual people, but may include groups, organisations, countries or abstract concepts. These representatives are then ‘set up’ to stand in a configuration called a Constellation or ‘living map’ and asked by the facilitator to feed back basic information which both contributes towards a fuller understanding of the present difficulty and supports movements towards resolution. By creating a ‘living map’ of the issue, we can begin to see what is blocking movement or what it is that needs aligning to complete, and therefore bring peace, to the whole system. The system may of course be our family system, our relationship, our working environment or our own integrated health and wellbeing.
Resolutions come from what Bert Hellinger, the originator of this work, calls ‘the Orders of Love’ or ‘Movements of the Spirit’ and are based on naturally occurring universal forces, such as time and place and inclusion, which govern the balance and health in all systems.
As well as discussion and teaching, there will be space to look at 5 or 6 issues during the day. We will simply ask the group who would like to do a personal piece of work and will select who ever feels ready at that moment. As a result, please be clear that the opportunity to present your own issue is not guaranteed. It is however our consistent experience in this work that those present will, in one way or another, have an equally powerful experience. Whether you have brought the issue, actively participated as a representative, or held the space for the work in the outer circle, each constellation offers profound insight and opportunities for everyone in developing new perspectives and clarity on aspects of our own experience. We will of course all reflect on each piece of work together at the end.
We provide a confidential, safe and supportive environment for this work to be undertaken. The process can be profound and engaging on both intellectual and emotional levels. Please come prepared to participate with a spirit of openness and generosity.
