African Constellations provides training in Systems Constellations in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and other cities in on African continent and internationally on invitation. Our Foundation Course is for personal development and is based on a learning model that integrates embodied experience and theoretical understanding. The Foundation Course is the pre-requisite for Facilitator Training which can now be followed in various learning tracks including:
- Family and Couple Constellations
- Organisational and Coaching Constellations
- Nature and Land Constellations
As well as highly qualified and experienced local trainers, our international trainers have included: Dr Ursula Franke-Bryson, Bertold Ulsamer, Daan van Kampenhout, Frank Gallenmueller, Johannes Schmidt, Stephan Hausner, Guni Baxa, Francesca Mason-Boring, Marianne Franke-Gricksch and Ria Verlinden.
African Constellations is committed to acknowledging and honoring the first people of the African continent, as well as sources of knowledge that inform Systems Constellation theory and practice. Our aim is to build a local community of highly trained professionals in South Africa.
African Constellations now also produces dollies to be used for Systems Constellations in individual therapy as its first women’s economic empowerment initiative in South Africa. We support mothers to learn doll-making as a source of income for their families, and help to market and distribute the dollies worldwide.
