SHADES of Life - Colour Constellations


During 2021 Sonya Welch-Moring and Beatrice Millar will be hosting a series of bi-monthly workshops on the theme of SHADES of Life. These sessions build on the Community and Social constellations workshops held in 2020 and there is a continuing emergent feel to the work.

The Offer: Colour-full Conversation - Online Via Zoom

The workshops will explore the many different SHADES of Life, with a focus on colour dynamics in personal relationships and professional contexts. They aim to explore the colour entanglements that arise in families and communities, leading to open and honest conversations on how these issues can impact us in our personal and professional lives.

Shadism and Colourism in families can create conflict between family members and have an adverse effect on a person's sense of worth and well-being. These issues are found across diverse cultures around the world. And yet we often do not talk openly about them; guilt, shame and fear often get in the way.

Seeing and Sensing Beyond Colour Dynamics

We will be holding the workshops online using the systemic constellations method. Figurines or ‘dollies’, sourced and made in South Africa by Zimbabwean women will be ‘representatives’ for family members enabling us to ‘see’ and ’sense’ the impact of colour dynamics on a family or community.

We will draw on the resources and the energy of the group to create an embodied, visual, narrative - illustrations of the conversations taking place, asking questions like……..

• How do we examine colour dynamics in different communities, are there similarities and differences?

• What is the impact on siblings and other family members of ‘colour favouritism?’

• How do we explore colour dynamics in our own family of birth when parenting bi-racial children?

A Focused Holding Space

There are only 8 spaces available for each workshop, in order to create a space of safety and containment, so that everyone can feel free to express themselves. There will be time for several 30-minute consultations during the workshop and we will map constellations focused on the issues that participants bring from their professional and personal life.

The Black Lives Matter movement has helped to raise the public awareness of SHADISM as an issue affecting Communities worldwide. Facilitated by Sonya and supported by Bea, we are encouraging participants to move beyond just looking and fully engage in what it will take to examine some of these issues at a deeper level. In this way, together we help to make a change for current and future generations.

Agreements and Disclaimer

We are standing at the crossroads of an extraordinary time and it requires those who attend to show up and be willing to self-reveal. As an online workshop, we will ask for people to be willing to be seen, to have their video on.

Please note that this is not a therapy group, it is a personal and professional learning circle, open to people from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds. However, you may experience strong emotions connected to emotional wounds from the past, or feelings of guilt, shame or anger.

We ask you to think about your emotional health before coming on the workshop. Think about whether you are in a good enough frame of mind personally and professionally to benefit from the day.

Who is the Workshop For?

All workshops are a collaboration between Ancestral Constellations (www.ancestralconstellations.com) and PCSR (Psychotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility) and are open to people of all backgrounds, colours and ethnicities.
