A peer-based seminar combining Constellations with advanced therapeutic techniques such as Internal Family Systems, Focusing, Coherence Therapy, and more. Making space for new emergence in constellations.

Constellating with the Emerging Future

In his travels and study of multiple practice communities, Bruce has been observing a common theme where the Emerging Future has been making itself known as a resource that we can work with.

What do we mean by the “Emerging Future?” The most obvious way to see it is through Jan Jacob Stam’s similar discovery. When Stam began doing organizational constellations for startup companies, what often showed up in the field was that the true “client” was NOT the founders and their particular vision for their company. Particularly when the company was less than two years old, the client of the constellation was the Emerging Future trying to express itself through the founders. Since this discovery Stam may place the Emerging Future as a representative in certain business and organizational constellations.

While constellations are traditionally guided by the question of a single individual, in the process that Bruce is co-creating with other practitioners, we consider the Emerging Future as a parallel client, with its own impulses. Still beginning with an individual’s question or concern, we place a number of resources in the field, and also invite some people to stand in co-presencing.

In recent processes Bruce has done, with more resources placed, a wide spectrum of luminous resourcing energies have been coming through. At the end of the constellation, instead of “shaking off” these representations, people who resonated with them are encouraged to keep them as offerings from the Emerging Future. Each person involved may come away from the circle with a gift, a new accessible quality or frequency which they can take home with them and bring into their own lives.
