What is Constellating for the Collective?

Systemic Processes for Humanity (citizens, groups, communities) to Align 🞜 Design 🞜 Activate 🞜 Emerge 🞜 and Evolve 🞜 collectively on behalf of All-Life. Workshops, retreats, and trainings on-line and in person when possible.

What is the Collective?

Collective has several meanings, for example: people who are in groups such as political and religious groups; a community; a city; and (patterns in) collective consciousness.

Who Participates?

Individuals ready to move beyond their own personal concerns to serving the Collective; leaders of visionary organizations; organizations ready to evolve; social justice groups; citizens involved with community/city concerns; Constellators expanding from Family + Organizational Constellations Work, Systemic Coaches + Consultants

Why?

  • care for self, other, place and planet
  • we see the system as a whole and the
    system sees itself
  • listen to the messages of all the parts of the
    system represented and the Field
  • allow movements to emerge and evolve
  • release blocks and restore balance to the
    whole
  • align systems with the flow of Life
  • plant seeds of the new in the collective
    consciousness

Process:

In small and large groups, in-person or on line, Systemic Constellation Work’s tools, methods, and processes (which have proven to be effective, practical and transformative) are applied.

Each group co-creates the process collectively: finding the “right” question/issue to be placed in the knowing field; choosing the elements to be represented; mapping the living system; allowing the systemic movements; sharing information emerging from the Field.

Themes

We gather to explore our challenges, concerns, fears, hopes and dreams for the Earth, humanity, our country, our families, our Home! Here are only a few examples of questions, issues, and propositions we explore:

  • communicating with Mother Earth, the Spirit of Water, Spirit of Place
  • finding a home for the victim and tyrant…
  • exploring how to become conscious witnesses
  • feeling safe in a dangerous world…
  • Indigenous Peoples, Settlers (“those who have come from distant places,” immigrants, refugees) and the Soul of Canada…
  • living beyond extreme polarization – is it possible?
  • shifting from caring only for our personal concerns to serving the collective?
  • what does humanity need to do in the face of the impacts of climate change?
  • what is the role of money now? where’s the money?
  • participants bring their own heartaches and passions

 

Each branch of SCW is a doorway into the Collective Field:

Family Constellation Work through individuals and transgenerational traumas;

Organizational Constellation Work through organizations + institutions and societal issues.

Constellating for the Collective through starting in the Collective Field for the purpose of shifting patterns in Collective Consciousness.
