The staff this year includes:
For many years maintaining a lively interest in spiritual practice and exploring the interconnections of systemic constellations systemic bodywork and rituals. In my work I aim to balance body, heart, mind and spirituality for the unfolding of an entity which encompasses all these dimensions.
I am a systemic therapist and consultant who likes, together with her clients, to explore their questions, narratives and histories in a wholehearted and dialogic way - with the intention to open new perspectives and beneficial narratives that can help to add meaningfulness beauty and joy to their (personal and professional) life.
Due to my background in different therapy schools (e.g. systemic therapy, hypnotherapy, body psychotherapy, depth psychology) it is my major concern to integrate different approaches and methods in constellation work. Main focuses in my teaching through practical exercises are formats for groups, couple therapy as well as the one on one setting, clarifying the individual´s concern, using the phenomenological approach and the group as a therapeutic factor.
I have a background in Gestalt and education, and have been working as a family, educational and organisational constellator, concerned with helping to establish sound training in the UK and internationally since 1992. I have also specialised in couples work and in exploring the power of language and the creative range of constellations to support its heart opening value in families and in society.
Lap Fung Cheng
I can describe myself as one of the most innovative facilitators that incorporate Chinese traditional wisdoms into constellations. I‘m also an inventive teacher who can make constellation work much more easier to master than ever before. I‘m also an agent of change to China‘s whole social movement. My vision is simple: offer Chinese people ONE more choice!
As a Facilitator, I am respectful, patient and sensitive to the client’s experience, and family system. Integrating a background in theater, improvisation, Gestalt and family therapy, I often use humor and story telling to create an atmosphere of acceptance, trust and safety, which allows the work to go deep. I work at maintaining a personal edge in order to help the client reach clarity, new insights and systemic truths. I am interested in exploring the deeper spiritual aspects of constellations and its affcet along the path. I am a husband, father of six, a grandfather, friend, and one of seven siblings. I am a trail runner and a practitioner of zen meditation. I love to garden, cook, write, travel and hang out with friends and family. I laugh a lot, sing oftn, and try not to take myself or life too seriously.
Special Guests this year include:
Hunter Beaumont, PhD
Hunter Beaumont, the founder of the International Intensive, will briefly leave retirement to return to the Intensive this year for a gest lecture. When asked for a few descriptive sentences for the web page, he wrote, “I love solitude and the stillness of remote places. In this phase of life, my energy and interest turn inward, and toward Nature and the course of seasons. I live in gratitude and joy for all that I have been given.”
Since 1983 I have been exploring body, mind and spirit as a bodywork and energy practitioner. I began to study Family & Systemic Constellations in 2002. I integrate constellations into my hands-on-therapy, do individual and group constellation sessions and train facilitators. In all my work I use highly developed senses to come into deep contact with the client’s patterns of disorder to support their spontaneous movement towards resolution and truth.
I am a wife, mother, psychologist and founder of African Constellations, training facilitators from many different fields in using systems constellations since 2005. My approach with clients and teaching is phenomenological and experiential learning from the body up, with special interest in observation, nature, dance, ritual and African psychology.
I am a registered Drama and Movement Therapist, Family Constellations Facilitator and founder of Expressive Movement. My interest is embodied practice and I’m passionate about dance as an accessible holistic healing and meditation practice.
My uniqueness is my ability to tune into the inner („soul“-) processes of another - creating pictures in language so that new stories can emerge. My hope is that the other people can then also join me in seeing these processes with their inner eye. Or: I, the bard, travel from village to village, from country to country, I tell you stories, and I collect your stories – I breathe them in and I send them back to you with my breath.
I bring together neuroscience and constellations, making learning and integration fun and easy. I facilitate, teach and speak and write about constellation work and interpersonal neurobiology internationally.
I am a constellator and musician who has the ability to feel what is going on in people and what they need to hear right now. I do my constellations more body based und giving an experience rather than with too much speaking and mind.
