Nature Constellations with Francesca Mason-Boring
Nature Constellations will allow facilitators of systems constellation to expand their practice by beginning to more consciously include nature in their facilitation of family, organizational, community, collective, and all applications of systems constellation. This content will also provide several specific templates and resources which will allow you to consider whether you might wish to offer a constellation workshop which specifically addresses issues around land management, identifying specific support for clients through the inclusion of Nature in constellation, and possible explorations and understanding of our human connection to nature as yet to be discovered.
Facilitation of Nature Constellation assumes prior training and experience in the facilitation of systems constellation. Completion of all material is recommended before beginning to offer Nature Constellations.
In addition to the facilitation of Nature Constellation this course provides references and resources which could encourage teachers at all levels, to expand their personal perspectives, and nurture within students a deeper perception of indigenous knowledge which is increasingly appreciated for its respect and relationship to the natural world.
For those in helping professions; therapist, medical practitioners, counselors, life coaches, etc. the content of this course may reinforce the inclusion of nature and natural elements in your approach. Further, I hold a hope that for those who are serving human beings something in this content will remind you to make space to renew yourself through encounters with nature- whether through more regular visualizations of quiet vistas, flower gardens, or inviting places to lie on the grass when you are pressured; perhaps your earlier camping trips, or nature walks will be reinstated to more frequently restore your energy levels and allow you to fully let go the stresses which can accumulate when you are accompanying other human beings in difficult circumstances.
Of course, I hold a hope that the accumulative result of this course is that we again remember that we are a part of nature, and that is how we have survived on the planet for the time that she has held our family systems. The re-membering of that sacred relationship is our path to the continuance of future generations on this Mother Earth.
Note: this is a do it yourself course. You can do it in your own time. At the end, you will gain access to a facebook chat group live with Fran.
