Collective Resourcing:


----October 2020 -  Five short videos on Resource Rich Constellations with Beth Tener, Simon D’Orsogna, and myself:

1.     4 minutes. Beth describes the origins of this form during a gathering in 2018.

2.    3 minutes. Offering the possibility that the constellation also grows capacity in the community, not only the Seeker/Client.  Introduction to co-presencing as a practice - relational resourcing. One of Beth’s images, “Portals of Power” is shown.

       3.         3 minutes  Considering “The Emerging Future” as the client in this form of constellations. Introducing the inquiry “What does The Emerging Future/Great Love want?” 

“Can we use the constellation as an evolutionary process, not just for the so-called ‘client’, but for the entire group?”


      4.   4 minutes. Introducing Beth’s image “The Big Picture” that we use to set up the Resource-Rich constellation 


      5.  3 minutes Some details about how these constellations are run - they begin with this image, and we allow the elements to interact and orient with the person and their issue.
