New start in Norway in 2021
This training is a journey inwards by Creative Expressions, Constellations and Meditations. It is an exploration of old patterns in our life and patterns in our family. Hidden dynamics that conceal unknown strength will come to light. It will give us new insights and strength in our life. By acknowledging these dynamics without judgment, it will give us support to take steps forward, towards a happier and more healthy and fulfilled life. The participants will be supported to contain and to integrate their personal processes and to find their own path.
Through this training you will experience, how your personal process can be beneficial to you as a failitator or helper. There will be a practical and theoretical approach to the main themes in each module. Projection mechanisms, group dynamics, group processes, coaching techniques, ethical issues and supervision are important to experience, learn and to integrate to become a professional facilitator. Therefore they will be a part of most of the modules,
How to do a Constellation?
During the training modules, we will practice how to do the constellations with playmo figures, creative expressions and constellations in a group and individually.

Module 5 “Fairytales and healing”
Work with fairytales and myths gives the participants support to find their own strength, path and healing. The collective field.
“Of the various types of mythological literature, fairy tales are the simplest and purest expressions of the collective unconscious and thus offer the clearest understanding of the basic patterns of the human psyche. Every people or nation has its own way of experiencing this psychic reality, so a study of the world`s fairy tales yields a wealth of insights into the archetypal experiences of humankind.” Marie-Louise von Franz (C.G. Jung)

Family Constellations started as a method within psychotherapy, developed by Bert Hellinger in the beginning of 1980. Today his work has a more spiritual approach rather than a methodical approach with movements that support life and love.
Peoples lives are extensively controlled by hidden dynamics. The problems and difficulties in couple relationships, in families, with children, work, mental and physical illnesses and lack of happiness in life are consequences of these hidden dynamics. With Family Constellations combined with creative work it`s possible to bring these hidden dynamics to light. By acknowledging what comes to light, the problem or difficulties in life releases and opens up for new insights and solutions. Love can flow freely and it can help us to take steps towards a happier and more fulfilled life.
Art therapy: The theoretical foundation is based primarily on CG Jung’s analytical psychology. With the help of artistic expression, we create a link between the inner and outer world, between the conscious and the unconscious. By drawing, painting, making clay figures, making movements, we create and express. These creative expressions works like a bridge to the parts of the psyche that is normally hidden in the unconscious layers. Unconscious, forgotten or denied resources and opportunities become visible in the art therapeutic process. The creative work combined with the family constellations support and help the individual to release, change and to get more awareness, greater joy, self-acceptance and action in their own lives.
