The African Constellations Experience


Welcome to the 1st African Constellations Experience

A Return to Source. An African Encounter. A Learning Experience.



We invite you to the 1st African Constellations Experience, 12-16 September 2018, to be held in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa – one of the origins of Family Constellations.

This historical event is about learning and deepening our constellations practice through grounded connection, coming home to ourselves and acknowledgement of the richness, wisdom and community that is inherent to the African continent.

This initiative was dreamed of for many years by Tanja Meyburgh, founder of African Constellations. In 2016 Nadia Khan Kimmie approached her with a similar idea and this  ignited the spark that would inspire the founding of the first African Constellation Experience. A core holding group was invited and the experiential conference and intensive rapidly took shape. We are privileged to be supported by Francesca Mason-Boring and Stephan Hausner among many other esteemed facilitators and trainers locally and from abroad.

Workshops, Training, Presentations – 12 to 16 September 2018

Subject Workshops: Tanja Meyburgh, Francesca Mason-Boring and Stephan Hausner will offer open workshops.

Training: Three different afternoon learning streams according to your level of family constellations training and experience. Click for more on the training streams.
