Here are Modules 1 & 2 of 10 modules which comprise the Earth Ensemble Constellation Practitioner training.

Scroll below for Module 1 & 2 content

Below are the times for the third intake which will begin at the end of May. Please get in touch NOW to see the details and form and to reserve a space.  

6 sessions on Zoom of 2 hours

Each module comes with a page of content and principles. Attendees are responsible for their own note taking.


Entry requirements:   There are no entry requirements - but I will carefully consider applicants on the back of previous experience and involvement.  To take the full course of 10 modules and receive a certificate for practice you will also need to have taken a quad and the Intro workshop with Carol Day.

The first modules online are half price as I needed to have flexibility with dates until I have finished my film course in August.

3.  The Enquirer


  • the importance of the place of the enquirer and the holding that the plot has unfolded because they have entanglements with or pulls to other stories through their body genetics, life, ancestral and the mythical holding stations 

  • that if the representative was able to clearly hold their place and their life wish then these stories would not be showing up as difficulty.  

  • the student is guided to go through exercises and movements that allow them as the space holder to hold a clear space holder place known as ‘neutral stance’ so that the enquirer can find their way back to this too.  

  • they also learn a range of different ways of setting up or approaching this work.

Course work focus:  


  • choosing an environment that the student finds themselves in often and observing the model, principles and fields at work

  • observing and recording what happens when they find a neutral stance

Future modules will take place at the discretion of the course leader.  Days cannot be set due to the nature of the film course and its unpredictable terms, but if possible to timetable the same, will do.   Hours may be accrued towards an insurer's requisites.
