Systemic Family Constellations I

Peirsman Cranio Sacral

Tina Vervaeke

Family Constellations is a powerful method to help you recognise difficult entanglements, both in your family of origin as well as in your present family or relationship. Solution-oriented interventions bring understanding, which is followed by a deep relaxation that allows love to flow again between members of the family system.
The systemic view focuses on the causes and needs behind symptoms (rather than on the symptoms themselves). Systemic interventions primarily focus on clarifying what is going on, so that people in the system can contribute to making the system vital in their own way. Everyone can contribute to the (sub) system from their own place and position, sometimes by looking in a different way, sometimes through targeted, necessary interventions.

We will learn the basic dynamics of family constellations. Students will have the opportunity to have a personal session. Dynamics will be explained accordingly.

Tina Vervaeke is a craniosacral therapist and family constellations facilitator of over 13 years. She lives in Ghent, Belgium where she has her practice and organizes family constellations monthly. She also is a systemic worker and organization constellations facilitator in enterprises, institutes, and organizations. Tina taught the first 4 classes at Etienne’s schools in Belgium and Holland for over 10 years. $650, 4 days, 32 hours. 9:00am - 6:00 pm. Note: This is an advanced course and requires permission from Etienne.

We will further learn about the systemic dynamics and how to ‘see’ and ‘feel’ in a systemic, phenomenological way. There will be exercises in small groups to train this interesting way of observing. We will also learn how to facilitate a constellation session during craniosacral therapy. With extra attention on how to formulate the questions, and how to guide the session from a systemic approach. Pre-requisites: Basics and Talking to the Heart.

Systemic Family Constellations

Cranio Sacral School of the Masters

Tina Vervaeke

Family Constellations is a powerful method to help you recognise difficult entanglements, both in your family of origin as well as in your present family or relationship. Solution-oriented interventions bring understanding, which is followed by a deep relaxation that allows love to flow again between members of the family system.
The systemic view focuses on the causes and needs behind symptoms (rather than on the symptoms themselves). Systemic interventions primarily focus on clarifying what is going on, so that people in the system can contribute to making the system vital in their own way. Everyone can contribute to the (sub) system from their own place and position, sometimes by looking in a different way, sometimes through targeted, necessary interventions.
You will learn the basic dynamics of family constellations and we will apply what we’ve learned in a craniosacral session.

Tina Vervaeke is a craniosacral therapist and family constellations facilitator of over 13 years. She lives in Ghent, Belgium where she has her practice and organizes family constellations monthly. She also is a systemic worker and organization constellations facilitator in enterprises, institutes, and organizations. Tine teaches Systemic Family Constellations at the Peirsman CranioSacral Academy in the Netherlands, where this class is had been part of the curriculum for 10 years. $645, 4 days, 32 hours. 9:00am - 6:00 pm.

Brain I

Cranio Sacral School of the Masters

Etienne Peirsman

This class focuses on the special skills needed to experience Brain matter. It is the ultimate exercise in both neutrality and awareness. Here we meet right at the cusp, where one’s energy starts to materialize and where cells are as close to pure electricity as is humanly possible. It all starts with the eyes, looking inside the body. From there we will refine our skills of touch so that it will be possible to transcend the human form. Our focus will then move to harmonize the symmetry so that all brain parts can integrate. The Brain’s pathways cross the midline at different parts. This creates an explosion of possibilities; we will be able to harmonize these different places and regain unity. You will learn and be able to use Neural Stem Cells to repair all places that are damaged or suffer from lack of oxygen. You will be able to travel around the Brain and visit your total ventricle system and repair this wherever this is needed. Finally we will be able to unwind and experience a fully harmonized Brain, a Buddha Brain. $695, 4 days, 32 hours, 32 CEU's. 9:00am - 6:00 pm. Pre-requisite: Understanding and Working with the Alarm Systems.
