5 Elements Constellation Workshop

London

Constellation process can be seen as a tool that can be used or accessed in order to gain clarity and insight into situations in our lives that we are not happy with. This include, relationships with family members, intimate, as well as with friends or co-workers. Health or professional issues, our relationship with money, abundance or feeling stuck are some of the important life issues that can be constellated.

In this work the elements represent five aspects of the Self. Each of the 5 elements, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, and Fire have many associations and significance and it is an intra-psychic type of constellation. Additionally, there are two cycles that help and promote health and harmony, similarly to the ‘Order of Love’ from Bert Hellinger. When these two cycles are affected or disrupted these lead to internal dynamics that support ways of being, issues, and patterns that weigh us down or holds us back. These are further explained at the beginning of the workshop.

Constellating the elements  allows us to reveal the inner and ‘hidden’ dynamics internalised earlier in life or we are unconsciously entangled in systemic, parents and ancestors events or situations. Many, maybe even most problems we have in life are often times symptoms of these unconsciously internalised dynamics. Dynamics that thus far have had an influence or hold on us and have been making life more complicated or difficult or confusing. The constellation approach allows these inner dynamics to be seen and help us to be aware of them. This process is insightful, diagnostic, and expands the person’s view of pertinent life issues. From this new expanded awareness the work progresses towards a resolution, towards a more harmonious, strengthening way of being. By seeing the deeper reality beneath presenting problems is enlightening, hugely relieving and creates real movement. When these movements are supported and happen, we are more integrated, congruent and calm. These help us gather more of ourselves and our resources, easing our way forward in life. This approach supports us experience life with a greater level of harmony with ourselves and with everything and everyone who is important to us.

Basic Facilitator Training – Boulder, CO – 9 Days

Shadow Work

PROVIDENCE, RI

The Basic Facilitator Training might be exactly what you are looking for. It provides substantial structure for facilitating Shadow Work® processes together with lots of experiential practice time.  We train very small groups of facilitators so you can receive plenty of mentoring and guidance from us as you practice the processes.

You will discover how to use the power of the Shadow Work® processes to liberate those parts of yourself and others that have been repressed and denied.  The training also provides you with the opportunity for some personal growth as you work with the shadows that might block your ability to facilitate – ­­or just live the life you want – by unlocking your true power and experience your gifts and strengths in a setting designed for group safety and individual choice.

Besides learning to facilitate Shadow Work ® processes, you will also be shown the four basic “Shifts in Perception” we use to illuminate the four most difficult shadows you will encounter.  Learning to understand what’s really beneath the most difficult shadows gives you leverage for dealing with all people.  You will learn how each of the four biggest shadows grew out of a particular set of wounds, and how it can be unraveled and mended by the ShadowWork® processes.

In this way, you have more capacity, balance, and choice with which to live your life. Our desire is that you will discover how to use the power of ritual space to use these tools for doing that consistently with yourself and others.

Time Mastery for Leaders

One Moment Company

Multiple Locations

Great leaders lead on time.

Not  boxed in by a congested daily schedule, they don’t confuse being ‘busy’ with being real and being present each time, every time. They model healthy time habits for their organizations because they know that their personal time practices profoundly impact those around them. They create the time needed to truly lead. And they seem able to do this with space and with ease.

The day-long seminar, held in Greenwich, London–one of the most important sites in the history of human timekeeping–will be a deep dive into your beliefs and choices about time.

You will learn how to transcend the daily struggle with ‘busy’, find the kinds of time you really need, and discover that by creating more space in your mind, you may even have more time than you think. And you will learn our disruptive approach to  time, enabling you to meet the emerging challenges of 21st century leadership.

The One Moment® Time Mastery program will help you:

  • identify the factors that have forged your relationship with time
  • penetrate the mystery of time
  • develop the skills and power to make time work for you

Immunity to Change Facilitator’s Workshops

Minds at Work

Doubletree Suites Boston/Cambridge 400 Soldiers Field Road Boston, MA 02134

This three-day workshop is the first step in developing knowledge and experience with the ITC methodology. Participants learn how to use the powerful Immunity Map assessment tool in both individual coaching and group workshop settings to uncover the hidden immune system that prevents change.

The Immunity to Change Approach

What happens when your clients want to change but find themselves stuck in old patterns?  The Immunity to Change (ITC) methodology is designed to help individuals, teams and organizations attain deeply sought changes by bringing their internal unconscious resistance to change to light.  This award-winning coaching method is based on years of research in adult development and has supported individuals, teams, and organizations in every sector and geography to succeed in meeting their improvement goals.

Over the three days, participants join other coaches, consultants, organizational development officers, corporate trainers and others from around the world to learn about and practice how to support their clients in diagnosing and overturning the immune system and realizing their critical improvement goals.

We offer this program four times per year: March 27-29, June 12-14, September 18-20, and December 4-6.  It is a prerequisite for all other Minds at Work ITC programs.

Our next workshop is coming up in March!

The Coach Certification program is the most in-depth and comprehensive coach training program that Minds at Work offers and the only one that provides a path to ITC coach certification.  We are very careful in our selection process, looking for the strength and experience of each individual participant as well as the dynamics of the small cohort we are forming.

Participants experience ITC as both coach and “client.” There are two intensive, interactive seminars here in Cambridge, two group video-conferences, and each participant is paired with a personal certified ITC coach and mentor who will guide them through the various aspects of ITC. Our dual approach gives participants a deep, holistic understanding of Immunity to Change and enables them to demonstrate skillful ITC coaching.

It allows co-creators in a given system to gain insight into the current situation, seeing potential opportunities for change. It sets the ground for creative collective action.
“Theater” here denotes an empty stage or a blank canvas where the different aspects and roles of the system can be embodied. In that space, the roles can interact in fresh and creative ways to reveal emerging possibilities hidden in the system. It is “the art of making a true move.”

Conscious Leadership: A Unified Model of Leadership Development

Cape Cod Institute

 

Consciousness and performance—personal, organizational, and systemic—are fundamentally connected. The organization will be structured and perform at the predominant level of consciousness of its leadership. If we want higher-order performance, individually and organizationally, consciousness must be restructured.

This workshop will provide a powerful leadership development experience for both those seeking to improve their own organizations and those serving clients as organizational development consultants, coaches, and therapists. It will introduce you to a unified model of leadership that integrates most of the best theory and research to emerge over the past 50 years in the fields of leadership, psychology, human potential, and even spirituality. At the core of this model are the Stages of Adult Development frameworks that are just now finding their way into our approaches to leadership effectiveness.

The workshop will include a self-assessment using the Leadership Circle Profile, which provides personal insight through the lens of the Unified Model. It will introduce five leadership practices (listed in the outline below) that will reliably boot up higher-level leadership.

Also, you can be a part of the Shadow Work experience without working your own issue individually in the center of the group.

Envisioning Peace: Foundational Practices

Hollyhock

Peace is a choice, intention, and outcome. Envisioning peace starts with the foundation of cultivating peace within our own hearts and generating harmony and vitality in the body. From the sacred ground of inner peace, we learn skills to bring peace into our speech, into our relationships, and into our world.

Immerse in yogic practices that cultivate and generate inner peace in mind, body, and heart. Practice non-violent communication, mindful speech, and conflict resolution skills. Learn to stand up, speak out, and act from a place of love and fearlessness. Envisioning Peace speaks to all aspects of our health and well-being- body, mind, heart, relationships, and our purpose.

Topics and themes covered include:

  • Power of intention, visualization, meditation
  • Non-violent communication and conflict resolution skills
  • Boddhissattva (Buddhist) activities and practices
  • Yogic practices for inner peace and harmony

Envisioning Peace is a call to all dreamers, healers, yogis, and activists to gather, dream, inspire each other and create the positive momentum for peace and justice in ourselves, our families, our community, and the world.

The Joy of Missing Out: A Digital Mindfulness Retreat

Hollyhock

You have 365 days this year. Imagine spending four of them at a world-class wilderness retreat centre surrounded by thoughtful people set on making their days count too. Imagine conversations and clarity. Imagine tools for real-life scenarios that will go to work for you immediately. You get to choose who wins this year: you or your devices.

It’s easy to forget that in the course of human history, smartphones, social media, and other elements of digitized culture are brand new and we are still adjusting to this ‘new normal.’ All of us need a moment to step back, take a breath, and re-centre our relationships with ourselves and other humans. This program offers people the opportunity to set their screens and distractions aside in order to tap into their sources of joy and meaning while learning how to make the shift from being controlled by technology to engaging with it on our own terms.
