Special Event: Southwest Costellation Symposium

Southwest Constellation Symposium

Coming Together – Creating Community

Our 1st Southwest Constellation Symposium on Dec 6/7, 2014 in Santa Fe, New Mexico will focus on coming together and creating a strong constellation community in the Southwest. This symposium will celebrate our local communities in Santa Fe, Albuquerque and beyond, by meeting in the “Knowing Field”, sharing our knowledge and learning from each other. Our program invites facilitators, students and everybody who is drawn to constellation work. Our goal is to empower each other for more collective and personal healing and professional growth. We honor Bert Hellinger as the one who initiated constellation work in Germany and we embrace his students who passed on the knowledge and gave facilitators all over the world the opportunity to create their own unique approach to constellation work. Our intention with this symposium is to come together as a greater community, to share our passion for constellation work and honor our different styles. We all belong and have our place in the “Knowing Field”.

Bill Mannle, LMFT

Bill MannlePresentation – Saturday: “Movement of the Soul, a Personal Reflection“
Presentation – Sunday: “Systemic Supervision: Moving through Impasse and Discovering Resources“
Description: Finding your way in the field can be difficult. Often a therapist will become immobilized, feel frustrated, alone, and set drift without a compass. This can be the result of hidden loyalties in the therapist’s family system, past trauma or fear, being activated by the client’s system. Supervision is an experiential approach that explores reciprocal influences between the therapist, the client, the representatives (group work) and the field. As practiced in Constellation work, supervision invokes inquiry that compels the therapist toward a deep introspection, while at the same time providing a safe space to develop heart and soul presence. Using Constellations as the primary method of inquiry, we will identify personal blocks, move with resistance, re-connect to our creativity, and find resources that help us remain open and present to our clients.
Bio: Bill Mannle, LMFT is a Gestalt and Marriage & Family Therapist in private practice in Connecticut, USA.

Barbara J. Eggenberger, MFT

Barbara EggenbergerPresentation: “Not Knowing, The Doorway to Everything“
Description: Not Knowing is a heightened sense of perception that escapes the boundaries of time and space and experience. It is the difference between regurgitated information and information that is fresh, brand new and exquisitely meaningful. Like ordinary knowing, not knowing is a state that can be learned and cultivated within the individual. I will share my own journey from Knowing to Not Knowing and provide some relevant experiences to support others along that path.
Bio: Barbara hails from California and Oregon where she has been a licensed Marriage Family Therapist for quite some time. In 2003 she was introduced to Constellation Work and after five years of seriously studying, representing, experimenting and training, she began facilitating in 2008. She has had a successful constellation circle in Sacramento, CA for the last five years and is well known and recommended for her powerful private constellations. In the last three years she has been facilitating psychotherapy groups that use constellation work as a tool of integration and has been leading Money Workshop Intensives. In the future she looks forward to adding intensives for health, sexuality and self empowerment. Her focus in all of her work is intended towards healing our relationship with self; for out of that relationship, all else follows.

Andrew Fearnside, MA, LMHC

Andrew FearnsidePresentation: “Honoring the Mountain, Creative Practice in the Desert from a Symbolic Systemic Perspective”
Description: A tension between individuality and community vibrates in every human life and enterprise. Here in the Southwest, this archetypal reality manifests in our relationship to the high desert, the land of the mountains at whose feet we build our lives. Can we live the psychological and spiritual values of our roots, and honor the desert? What does the desert require of us? How much can we allow ourselves to imbibe the values of the land we live in, and how much of our native values must we hold fast within us? What are we native to? Artist Andrew Fearnside will share aspects of his psychospiritual creative practice in exploring these questions.
Bio: Andrew Fearnside grew up in the temperate hill country of suburban Massachusetts, and developed and affinity for the land at a young age. He completed two Bachelors degrees, in literature and fine art, at Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.
