Constellation Facilitation Learning Program

Is This Learning Program for You?
  • If you’ve already taken a constellation training, & would like to increase your effectiveness & confidence facilitating
  • If you are new to the work & want to gain a solid foundation in the principles, practices, & attitudes that underlie this work,
  • If you want to learn more about a particular application of constellation work such as organizations or health…

...this program is for YOU!

If your work involves working with other people, especially in a healing, consulting, management, coaching, therapeutic, or service capacity, this program will be useful to you. Whether you are a relative novice to constellation work or an experienced facilitator seeking breakthrough to a new level of practice and understanding in your work, you will be able to shape the program to meet your needs. If you seek a place to explore your own issues and an opportunity to gain new useful perspectives and tools on living life more successfully, this program can support you. 

By joining this program, I assume that you are motivated to learn, have a deep, abiding interest in this field of practice, and are willing to put in the effort to gain what you want from this program. 

You are in charge of your learning: I can guide and support you, offer resources and assistance, and only you can decide where you want this journey to lead you.

Learning Program
Together we collaborate in shaping this training. In teaching constellation work internationally over the past 14 years, I’ve learned that most of you are likely to learn best when:

  • Your learning is customized to your skill level and the context in which you want to use constellations.
  • Learning is co-created through generative experiences with myself as an elder and guide, and other students who are passionate about this work and bring different perspectives, and your engagement with the important others in your life while you are in this program.
  • You follow your own pacing and timing, and work to the depth that is compatible with your life situation.
  • You bring your real-life situations and issues into the training context.
In this program you will learn: 
  • How to recognize the principles-in-action in the client’s description of their issue
  • How to recognize the principles-in-action on the floor or in table top constellations
  • How to read “Bodies in Space” and understand quickly where the most effective leverage points in the constellation are
  • How to position yourself in relation to your clients to give you the most ease and encourage their engagement in the process
  • How to negotiate successfully with the client’s cognitive framework so that change can happen and stick
  • How to adapt this work to different practices that you already offer
  • How to articulate the principles and value of the work to a wide variety of clients
  • How to facilitate constellations with ease and confidence

  What others are saying

Jane is a rigorous and delightful trainer. She challenges, encourages, provokes and supports. She possesses very refined skills as a therapist and researcher and she makes them explicit in the training in a way that I’ve not experienced before. In other words, what she teaches comes right out of her own experience of learning and inquiring into the constellation work. She has forged a path of understanding, and now invites us to join her in the exploration.
In short, I highly recommend this program for anyone who has a passion for learning, a willingness to explore inwardly, and who wants to gain a deep understanding of systemic constellations. For those who want to become facilitators of the constellation work, I can’t imagine a more thorough grounding and skill building process. Jane’s coaching and guidance is invaluable.
--M.M., Consultant, Trainer, Facilitator. Constellation Facilitator Training Program

As a professor of education, I have keenly observed and learned from Jane Peterson's skill as a teacher. Her presentations are carefully geared to suit all of our learning styles. She encourages us to read in areas that we are particularly interested in. She pays close attention to each of our strengths and areas that need developing and structures her assignments on an individual basis to address these needs. When speaking to a group, she attends most carefully to the group's state. And, as an excellent trainer of trainers, she points out to us what she is doing, so that we can learn to do the same thing.
--L.R., PhD, Educator. Constellation Facilitator Training Program

Thank you for your astute critical mind and willingness to share your knowledge so that people can find their own way to feel confident in this work. Thank you also for your willingness to explore new possibilities, to add to the growing body of work that allows each one of us to express our human journey from a place of inner knowing and love.
