(bring your own coffee/tea and snacks).
Relationships are integral to what it means to be human. Though we sometimes think of ourselves as separate beings, we’re more connected than we are separate. In this session we’ll look at the systemic basis for understanding the space between us in relationships.
- How balanced is the giving and receiving/taking in your relationships?
- What is your tendency when giving to others?
- How easy is it to receive or take from others?
We’ll use Systemic constellations, a process for exploring hidden dynamics in family systems that encourage or disrupt connection. In a gentle, respectful way they can shed light and bring new insight that helps relationships. They can offer a new perspective on relationships – and the issues that inevitably come up between people who care about each other.
In small group practice sessions, you’ll be invited to explore a relationship you value, and that you’d like to examine more closely. We’ll look at the balance of giving and receiving/taking, and how it affects relationships. You’ll have an opportunity to explore some of the hidden dynamics that keep issues in place, and have the chance to experiment with new ways of connecting.
