We are drawn together from a range of life journeys as practitioners in: counselling & psychotherapy; health care; creative art & craft; energy & body healing. Our common connection is through our ongoing association with family constellations healing work. We came together and trained as family constellations facilitators with Barbara Morgan of ‘the Coming Home Foundation’ (www.cominghome.org.uk), and some of us have completed further training with other renowned teachers in this field.

Our experience of Constellations work when it occurs close to nature, land and removed from modern distractions such as electronic devices, psychoactive substances, uncomfortable chairs, food on a plate and other first world expectations has been profound. We want to harness the energy and healing power of people as connected community in the safety of a camp circle. In communion with the four elements of earth, fire, water & air, each facilitator brings something authentic and unique to the camp community.   

Líam Connolly

Liam ConnollyI came across this work at Earthsong camp in Ireland. What can I say, it fits me like a glove. It was something I had never experienced before and yet it makes perfect sense to me.

Barbara Morgan was doing a training and I let it pass the first two times. It came around the third time to me and I thought okay, there’s a message here for me, and I went and did it.

I am passionate about bringing this work to other people who might not have the opportunity. The healing is very powerful.

What I bring to camp as a facilitator is my trust in the constellations field.

Roisin Fallon

One of the attractions of constellation work for me was the deep longing to understand where I belong. Attending family constellations workshops and training as a facilitator and trainer has helped me to peel away the layers of story and half-truths that I had built up around myself and look at them for what they are with love and not judgement. Looking afresh at myself through a systemic lens I have discovered a softer, more authentic me and this has enabled me to allow myself to belong right where I am.

This work has brought me home to facilitating workshops and running facilitator trainings in Ireland, it is my great passion and such a joy to pass it on.

I bring an unshakable belief in this work to camp. The sense of relief that I felt when I found this work is still with me every time I facilitate or even talk about constellations to someone. Witnessing constellation work is a coming home, a feeling of clarity and ease comes over me and I want everyone to experience the healing that has come into my life as a result of acknowledging what is.

Gabriella Kiss

Gabriella KissLooking back, one of the milestones in my life was when I came to Ireland in 1995. Meeting Family Constellation was another milestone. The immediacy of the work took me by surprise and I loved it and my body loved it too. As an Amatsu practitioner, an artist, a gardener and a carer, being in tune with my body’s messages is important to me and Family Constellation takes that even further. This work with all its ups and downs, has brought me further along the path of being fully myself.

I am passionate about being human and have a strong sense that we are all an intrinsic part of Nature. Watching how my garden transforms each year gives me great pleasure. I love wondering about the mysteries of life and I am touched by invisible acts of kindness.

I bring to the camp my Hungarian ancestors, their way of being and living, my full heritage and my love for it. I am also grateful for the kindness I have experienced in my adopted country of Ireland. I bring my strengths and weaknesses into this work, as well as the great sensitivity of my body and me being myself.

Líam Mac Gabhann

Líam Mac GabhannAs a health practitioner for 25 years, with 15 years in traditional therapeutic roles as mental health nurse, counsellor and psychotherapist; I came to realise that these approaches were limited on their own in how they could help people heal from significant life challenges. This led to an exploration of and training in alternative healing approaches, such as Reiki, Shamanism, Tai Chi, Mindfulness and Body Work. It was inevitable that I would end up embracing constellations work as an all encompassing holistic approach to healing.

This work unfolds what is and what has been in such a clear and uncomplicated way for people experiencing serious physical, emotional and systemic problems in life. Deep immediate understanding and healing with clear impact on our family systems is the hallmark of this work and the reason why I embrace it wholeheartedly.

I bring my history as a wounded healer; 10 years working alternatively with people experiencing trauma; a passionate connection to the land & nature’s energy and a curiosity about how we are all connected in some strange wonderful way.

Barbara Morgan

I have been working with constellations since 1997 offering workshops, supervision and training in Romania (since 2009) and the UK (since 2012).  This is my life’s work and it is very satisfying to witness the fruits of it many times over as so many people’s lives are transformed.  I deeply value the truth that can be uncovered by constellation work that takes us beyond our individuality, beyond the duality of right and wrong into a field of oneness.

For 18 years I edited the International journal of constellation work “The Knowing Field” and this greatly enhanced my awareness of other cultures and how they relate to this work.  I have also written 3 books:

Coming Home – A First Step into the world of Family Constellations Work                                                                                  Reflections on Motherhood Vol.1 – Birth                                                                                                                                                Reflections on Motherhood Vol.11 – A Different Path for the Soul                                                                                                     Vol. 111 is in process

Johanne Webb

Johanne WebbLike many of the holding group for this camp, Johanne came to this work through Earthsong. After many years of not quite making it in the door of the yurt to attend Barbara’s workshops, she finally managed it 4 years ago, and was hooked straight away. She has never found work that speaks so deeply to her, and that feels strong enough to hold and allow expression of the full range of human emotion. Johanne became interested in the work on her journey to uncovering the roots of physical and mental illness within her family of origin, and is passionate about the transformative potential for this work in healing those personal and familial diseases. Having worked in theatre for many years, in Ireland and the UK, she found herself working with theatre for development in Kenya, and came back not just with a beautiful baby boy, but with a sense of the need for ritual, community and belonging within our communities. She is very drawn to the ritualistic side of Systemic constellations, as well as the potential for transformation within organisational structures using this work. Words can’t express how excited and honoured she feels to be part of this camp on our native land.
