Module One

September 21st to 24th 2020

Refresh, resource, expand and practise

The first module, a residential retreat, is an opportunity for you to learn and also to rest and restore your personal and professional vitality. After a welcome supper on the Sunday evening the module begins with a deep refresh of the stance, principles and practices of the systemic approach. Each day then goes deeper into each dimension and application building your capacity for facilitation in many contexts. You will have opportunities to practise in small and larger groups so that you learn more about how to facilitate systems and the dynamics hidden within them.

This module includes a closing exercise that offers a profound way of accessing dynamics in relationship systems: ‘Walking in the Field.’

This first module will be led by Michael Cahill and Becky Hall, two members of the core facilitation team.

This 3.5 day module runs from Monday 21st September (with arrivals on the evening of Sunday 20th), finishing with lunch on Thursday 24th September.


Module Two

October 22nd to 24th 2020

Personal dynamics and family systems

The second module, three days in central London, invites the group to explore personal and family dynamics.

Designed to resource and strengthen participants, this module is built around family constellations in their original form and is facilitated by guest trainer Lynn Stoney.

The group experience the underpinning principles through a more personal lens and explore how to respectfully boundary or include family issues in the context of a coaching session or team workshops.

This is an opportunity to clarify and soften entanglements as well as how to resource ourselves and our clients.

This module will be led by Michael Cahill and Lynn Stoney, two members of the core facilitation team.

This 3 day module runs from Thursday 22nd October to Saturday 24th October.



Module Three

November 23rd (14:00 start) to 26th 2020

Consolidate, integrate, blend

The third module, three and a half days in London with John Whittington, brings us back to the many practical ways to blend the systemic approach with existing practices when working with individuals, teams and groups.

It is also designed to deepen your connection to all your other coaching experience, skills and resources as John supports you to integrate all you have.

With more opportunities to practise in different contexts and group sizes you will feel prepared to go out into your world and apply the stance, principles and practices with yourself, other individuals, groups and teams.

Led by John Whittington and Becky Hall, this  3.5 day module begins with a half-day at 14:00 on Monday 23rd November and finishes on Thursday 26th November.
