An ontological Being Human workshop staged in another place
As humans, we are equipped to lead both an inner and outer life. When these two are harmonious, they become one, so that our outer actions, thoughts, and feelings are guided by our inner Selves.
This is the essence of being human. In this powerful, experiential workshop we will introduce the Life Forces model that reflects the natural order that we are all a part of, including elements that echo and mirror the material, vegetal, animal, and human realms, our collective evolutionary history, and inherited and familial patterns. When a genetic predisposition, a feeling, a habit, or a belief takes power or influences us, whether positively or negatively, it exerts a force. These forces may support us or disrupt our natural order. We invite you to join us on a profound journey – in a beautiful setting – using the constellation process, and individual and group work to facilitate a wider and deeper understanding of the forces that shape you, and how they can support you in fully emerging as your Self.
There are many ontologies; all are classification systems that describe an ontology–a sequence of references and relationships that describe a process, idea, genus, mathematical or computer science. These classification systems describe the ontology of references that help build a map, model, or understanding of a particular domain. In the metaphysical domain, there exists specific, yet varied classifications that attempt to describe a human. We have melded this old knowledge with our contemporary inner understanding and experiences and created a modern template of a human being. We have taken an understanding that is thousands of years old, and laid upon it a new structure, a new representation, and a new understanding of the emergence of a human into full potential and realization. Our ontological model describes the classification of and emergence of a human through different states of being.
Living in the other
To help people begin to taste the forces, that affect us all the time, albeit we are largely unconscious of them, we take a small party of participants to a foreign country. This helps them to tune into the other ((through material resonances as signals, through the ‘drum’ of the interosseous ligaments between tibia and fibula), and in so doing, these resonances, when amplified, create a counter force against their own biases, beliefs, notions of health, or living, logic, spirituality. This dynamic is when change can occur within the client’s own state of being.
The workshops are held over a period of 10 days, and the group moves from several locations over that period. Ample time is given to explore the countryside, towns, or locals that we visit. However the workshop is the focus and so we use the downtime as homework, to augment and initiate internal processes.
