Constellation is a technical term used in human sciences to identify a system as a set of elements in relationship to one another.
So, we can use the word Constellation to refer to: a family, a relationship, a working team, an organization, the key elements of a project, to the choices available for a decision, or to the parts of our inner world.
The mutual influence between the elements is determined by the type of connection existing among them. The stronger the bond, the greater the influence on each other. Constellations are experiential exercises that allow us to quickly increase our level of awareness of the current situation, foster inner alignment and open up the way to change.
When using Constellations in a session, we create a spatial representation of the key elements of a topic you present, by using placeholders on the floor. Then you can embody and explore each element, by tapping not only into cognitive reflections but also into feelings and physical sensations.
Whatever the topic, Constellations are highly effective for developing Self-Leadership by increasing self-awareness and promoting a better inner and outer harmony.
In a nutshell, the Constellations process in a one-on-one session can be split into four main steps:
- Step 1. A conversation that aims to identify the key elements of the situation you present.
- Step 2. You map the current situation by creating a spatial representation of those elements. Then I guide you to explore each element to enhance your awareness of the situation.
- Step 3. We work together to modify the system and move it into an improved state by increasing the harmony among the elements, so that the system works better.
- Step 4. I support you in integrating the learning and identifying the next steps.
I use different forms of Constellations, including Family Constellations.
