Applied Collective Wisdom

Applied Collective Wisdom


The first block of the first learning course 'Paving the Way into Collective Wisdom' was received with much enthusiasm and deep learning by all participants. That's why we immediately planned the next version, starting September '08.


International Learning Course


Paving the Way into Collective Wisdom


Systemic Constellations as gateway

into collective connectedness.


In the fast changing world of current (dis-)information age personal and global orientation is more important than ever before. Rationalism can not solve the challenges we face and conventional problem-solving approaches fall short of what is needed. The required change in orientation, perception and volition is essential for our communal survival. Increased personal skills in holistic integration of feeling, sensing, and thinking inaugurate a new culture – a culture of deep connecting with ourselves, our transpersonal nature and global environment.


In Systemic Constellations Work we set up people as all-body-receptors to tune into a co-created field of inquiry. You bring your questions to the field and pick up information via embodied perception, observation of systemic interconnectedness and reciprocal dialogue. With this connection to a wisdom and knowledge that is all around us we can transcend the rationality and linearity of our cognitive safety cage. With more people tuning into that field more comprehensive wisdom can be retrieved and change the people who expose themselves to that communal experience. Sharing this collective inquiry makes us aware and help transcend the boundaries of our awareness. It opens the gateway to unprecedented resolutions and relationships.


When applied in a resonant and listening way constellation work can take you into a deepened relationship with yourself, encourage your surrender into an encompassing transpersonal reality and invites the communal co-creation of collective wisdom. The future issues we face and the traumata we need to overcome require the communal creation of a holding and resonant space.


This 4 x 4 day international residential training course provides a sound introduction into systemic constellation and self-relational work. By exploring themselves the participants are empowered to access the field of collective and transpersonal wisdom and reach into a more connected relationship with their inner and outer environment. A new culture of relating to each other emerges and ‘trans’-personal learning, healing, and transformation ensue.
