Play’s Hidden Symmetry: Constellations & Our Relationship with Play



Introduction to what I’ve learned about the relationship between play and constellations including 2 constellation exercises


Are you looking for fun yet profound ways to enable your clients to take a step towards better?

Do you long to constellate in a way that aligns with who you really are? Perhaps you are stuck and can’t quite figure out how to get out of the way when facilitating constellations?

If your answer is “Yes…” to one or more of these questions, then it’s time to play more in support of your growth as well as that of the people you work in service of.

This is a highly interactive session where you’ll be invited to experience true play defined by Dr. Stuart Brown as safe play, fair play and being a good sport.
