Family Constellation Foundation Training, Part 1
– 8 day workshop, 22-30 September 2023
Teacher: Svagito Liebermeister
Organisers: Candra Karlholm and Kåre Landfald
The Basic Training by Svagito is offered in two parts (two levels) of eight days each for a total of sixteen days. You can join part 1 before committing to part 2. It is a deep self-experience while also transmitting all the basic theoretical and practical principles of Family Constellation work. In this training Svagito goes further than ordinary Family Constellation therapy by developing an understanding that family members also represent our own inner energy. During this training we will make this shift from looking out to looking in, from being focused on others to coming back to ourselves. The world is really a mirror that shows us who we are.
Osho Family Constellation is based on meditation. It is rooted in a deep acceptance of life as it is, which takes one beyond the effort for improvement. When we can honour what is, therapy ends and meditation begins.
This training does not qualify one to practice psychotherapy as such, but enables anyone already working with people to expand their skills and broaden their understanding. It is for professionals and newcomers alike.
Level 1: Healing the Roots (8 Days)
We explore the energy field a child is born into and how this forms the layers of his or her mind. A therapist needs to learn to tune into such an energy field and in this way understand the behaviour and feelings of a client. A constellation is merely a method to make the relational field that we live in visible and help us understand what serves healing.
In this part of the training you will learn about the parent-child relationship (family of origin) and the man-woman relationship (present family), and what are the underlying laws that operate in these relationships.
As a participant you will have the opportunity to experience deeper layers of your own mind. In this way you will understand more deeply family and social conditioning, not only by seeing your own constellation, but also by watching and standing in for others. Svagito will explain step by step what a constellation reveals, how to stay tuned to the energy of a constellation, and eventually discover what allows the love of the system to flow again. As our awareness grows, our love and gratitude become deeper.
Some of the topics covered:
- Love and order in a family system
- Understanding bonding
- Resolving guilt and shame
- What supports love in the parent-child and the man-woman relationship
- The function of conscience
- The balance of giving and taking
- The difference between blind love and conscious love
- The interrupted movement to the mother
- The dynamic between victim and perpetrator
- Life, death and the unknown
Daily active meditations (Osho Dynamic Meditation and Osho Kundalini Meditation) and other guided meditations are an integral part of this training.
