Cultural Differences and Common Grounds

International Seminar 2019 for Constellation Facilitators 
by Dr. Bertold Ulsamer 

in Germany, Sonnenhof, Hinterzarten (Black Forest - near Freiburg) 

his constellation seminar for participants from different countries is a journey together to broaden the horizon for other cultures and to reach to a deeper understanding of what unites us as human beings. 
Families in different cultures – what do they have in common? What are the differences?
Men and women in different cultures – what do they have in common? What are the differences? And what can bridge these differences?
Moreover: historical events are reflected in the microcosm of each family. They are also reflected in every individual - whether on the surface or in deeper emotional reactions.
The question is: What is the effect certain historical events have today, e.g. imperialistic wars and conquests of the 19th and 20th centuries, Third Reich, Cultural Revolution. In the seminar this does not remain an academic question, but may touch each participant in its depth.

The background of the seminar: Since 11 years I work twice each year in China and have lead 11 trainings in family constellations. Chinese particpants asked me if they could come to Germany and to be part of an international training. So we plan a seminar with (around) 15 Chinese, 5 German and 8 participants from other Western countries.
(So this is a unique chance for Westerners to learn more about China, its culture and its people!)

We work with constellations (personal issues and supervision cases), do constellation rituals and exercises or practice in small groups.

The training is meant for facilatators and clients with a long constellation experience who want to deepen their understanding – limited number 28 

Bertold Ulsamer has a degree in clinical Psychology and holds a PHD in law. Since 1995 he has lead workshops and facilitated trainings in Europe, USA and China. He is NLP-Trainer and did the 3-year training with Peter Levine in Trauma work ("Somatic Experiencing"). He is author of "The Healing Power of the Past" and "The Art and Craft of Leading Family constellation" and of 7 other books about constellation work in German. 
Personal remark: In the many years of leading family constellation I developed my personal style where I focus strongly on the issue of the client and I set up only the minimum which seems to be necessary for the issue. I use precise and skilful language to “translate” the energy of the field. So an unique balance between the basic dynamics of energy, order and reality grows. I love to teach and often can explain the reason of an intervention afterwards.To see my way of working will give you some new ideas for your own practice and how to develop more skills.

The plan for the first 3 days – and then we go on with the flow.
