‘Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside,
you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing.'
Extract above from Kindness, a poem by Naomi Shihab Nye
Together we will use the family constellations modality to explore our inner and outer landscapes and discover how one shapes the other. We will travel our internal territories of loss and longing, our layered identities. And we will also find along the way previously unknown connections of support, nourishment and wisdom, from our overlapping systems of family, inner place and outer landscape.
Being in the world. Walking in the world, walking on the earth. Listening, seeing, feeling the ground underfoot, smelling the mingling scents of sea and earth. This experience touches the heart and awakes the senses.
Sound and sight and smell.
This external landscape, holding, surrounding self; becoming part of your moving internal landscape. A new felt internal spaciousness allows a new experiencing of your life, allowing new meanings to grow, together with a new sense of being rooted and grounded.
In the workshop: For those of you who have never experienced a constellation workshop I would like to let you know of the warm, intimate, safe and very holding quality that the constellation circle provides for each person who chooses to work.
And if you are not certain whether you want to, or are not yet ready to set up a constellation yourself, attend the workshop as a representative / observer in the holding circle. The experience of representing in someone else's constellation is deeply moving.
The Forge, 12 Windsor Road, Kalk Bay, Cape Town

A few more words about Family & Systemic Constellations for those new to the work
Working within the constellation modality is a very beautiful way of mapping out the relationships between people who are intimately connected.
This way of working allows an actual bodily experiencing of the texture and emotional content of the connections between each person. What has been hidden within a relationship is revealed. This newly experienced knowing opens up ways of stepping out of old stuck patterns; the new knowing opens up new possibilities and new ways of being in the world. These felt connections are extraordinarily supportive and nourishing; what underlies this work is a deep respect and honouring of an individual’s roots and ancestry and of self.
You will leave the day newly resourced and re-connected to self and to others.
Looking forward to meeting within the work,
