Constellation Circles
Feb 05, 6:30 PM


CONSTELLATION CIRCLES - an opportunity to explore our connection to our ancestors and other allies in a healing journey within sacred community!

What Family and Systemic Constellation work is about:

Family and Systemic Constellation work, developed by Bert Hellinger, with interest blossoming worldwide, is proving to be a beautiful way for a circle of interested people to safely and powerfully support each others' experiential exploration of possible liberating shifts in interpersonal systemic dynamics. 

The process is nearly impossible to describe, but wonderful to experience. 

Beginning with any big or little issue, following a kind of natural movement, again and again we find ourselves honoring trans-generational and historical trauma, and sharing the feeling of natural release from old patterns and the restoration of openings for the flow of love and clarity. 

Karen Stocker, longtime student of the 'phenomenological' constellation work of Francesca Mason Boring, began offering Constellation workshops to the Seattle community more than three years ago. This includes personal family constellations; restorative constellation meditations; medical constellations; organizational, community and nature constellations. 

'First Friday' Constellation Circles at Interfaith Community Sanctuary are a chance to experience this work, so difficult to describe and so wonderful to experience! 

The format is designed to offer a variety of constellation experiences. One or two personal Constellation spaces are available each evening. There are opportunities to experience, explore, and practice together:

Nature and Environmental Constellations, Community Constellations, Systemic, Organizational and Health-related Constellations on topics and other issues affecting our Beloved Community.

These Constellation Circles are offered as part of a regular monthly schedule of brief Evening Circles in community settings, designed to be easily accessible to all. 

The suggested donation to participate in the evening experience is $10, everyone is welcome, all questions are welcome, all issues are welcome, drop-ins are welcome.

(Please book your personal constellation in advance with Karen Stocker (206) 363-5555 x 1064 to secure a place. Personal constellation work is $50).  Please feel free to REGISTER with Katherine by using this email at: or ***** and you are welcome to leave questions in a message for Karen Stocker at (206) 363-5555 x 1064. 

with love, respect, gratitude and best wishes,
Karen and Katherine!
