In spring 2018 a new Systemic Ritual Training will start in Berlin. Like the earlier trainings, it will be a very international group where english is spoken – there will be no translation in other languages. In four meetings or five or six days each, held with about four months in between, participants will gain a thorough understanding of the building blocks of Systemic Ritual. Those who have completed the training will be able to create their own Systemic Rituals in response to the needs of the client. Dates are not yet available but will be chosen soon. Interested? Send a mail to organisors Stephan Mante (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Céline Baron (email@example.com) in Berlin to let them know you would like to receive all detailed information as soon as it is available. Please note: to qualify for the SRT you need to have participated in at least one open training Systemic Ritual. On the page Training Programs you can see where and when these these are planned.
I am very happy that Athalbero is finally out and available! The CD will be available during all trainings, and can be ordered as well. For ordering info, see the page Books and CD’s.
Jörg Polzer from Berlin filmed and produced a short documentary in which I speak about my work and my relationship to shamanism. Céline Baron and Stephan Mante were so kind to make themselves available and share some of their experiences and point of view as well. The days of chaos in which my Berlin home was sealed off from all daylight and rebuilt as a studio were worth it: I am happy with the result!
Over the years the amount of collective Systemic Rituals in my groups has been gradually increasing. In my current groups, about half of rituals I offer, give all the participants who wish to the opportunity to step in and join. The collective Systemic Rituals are based on a ground plan that includes various clearly defined archetypical positions. Participants choose each time anew where they will stand and how long they will stay there. By giving an individual interpretation to the different archaic roles that have been suggested, each participant creates their own personal journey within the ritual. Because these collective works are appreciated by many, I have started to plan some groups in which I will offer only collective Systemic Rituals. The first one took place in Amsterdam in October 2016 (Dutch spoken), and similar seminars will be planned in other countries as well, for example in February 2017 in Paris. Next to this new format (only collective works) I will continue to offer the familiar training formats in which personal constellations and rituals will be set up.
For a while I have been working on a new project: Systemic Ritual Tools. I am designing a series of different wheels that will be printed on textile, and some other tools that can be used for groups and in therapeutic one on one sessions. In the next months, as the first products will be made available, more news will follow!
In 2016 my new CD Athalbero will be released. I asked video artist Ceven Knowles to make a video for one of the tracks. Ceven used the old Nordic practice of skrying as inspiration: laying down on the earth, watching the clouds part and let yourself be drawn upwards in the sky to find information and communication with the spirits. Watch and enjoy it here.
The first four CD’s I have made are now available as downloads via CDbaby.com. When you visit cdbaby and search under my name you will find Altar, Kusjanga, Samuch/Side by side and Walk around the Sun there. Athalbero will be made available here soon later as well.
I am happy that finally Altar and Kusjanga are available again, they have been sold out completely for many years.
January 2012 I was interviewed by Renate McNay for Conscious TV. The interview is about one hour long. Unfortunately, at this moment, the interview can not be displayed on iPad because Flash can not be installed there. We are looking for a solution…
