Retreat and Constellation Workshop

Kirstin & Marcos are delighted to host this retreat, in the magical setting of Hazel Hill Wood. Created for those working with inner and outer change to better deliver their story, this is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the beautiful 70 acre woodland and, in community with others, explore and make progress with current challenges.

During our retreat we will be working with constellations, an approach which takes us beyond familiar modes of knowing to reveal hidden dynamics and circumstances as they truly are. Whether we’re working on our own story of change, or supporting another to work on theirs, we create a 3-dimensional map of the territory being explored. The process is wonderfully insightful and often profound and healing. Participants tell us this brings new clarity and a deeper resolution to even the most familiar or apparently intractable issues.

With no previous experience of constellations necessary, we invite you to join us with openness and curiosity.

What previous participants say

“Thank you Kirstin and Marcos for your undivided attention and generosity.”

“I very quickly felt a lot of trust in the space. With my own constellation, I felt very supported by Marcos and I felt a lot of trust and tenderness being listened to by the rest of the group… Having felt confused and vulnerable at the beginning, as I was trying to describe my issue, I had 3 or 4 really significant moments when my perception shifted. They were small but significant shifts in the way I was seeing things and then I came out with quite a clarity.”

“Thank you very much for this very special experience. With such an incredible group of people, the very sensitive and compassionate guidance from Marcos and of course the wonderful woodland, it was a very uplifting, moving and enriching experience. A very deep thank you to both of you.”

“It was a gift, a very special experience. What blew me away was how fast we got in to the magic of the place and the experience in the wood. The lighting, the atmosphere, the landscapes kept, every 10 minutes, producing another miracle of extraordinary magic. Constellations is a very special process, something that’s a real privilege to be part of. I can’t recommend it strongly enough. It’s extraordinary. It doesn’t make sense, but it’s such a powerful, insightful tool. And to do it in the woods is amazing.”
