How to Lighten the Chasm: Constellation Masterclass with Sarah Peyton
February 3 @ 9:00 am - February 6 @ 3:00 pm PSTCost: $900
About the Event
How do we hold and support our clients when they bring us their sense of meaninglessness, helplessness or futility in the face of collective trauma, systemic oppression and/or the climate crisis? How do we identify and support depression, and differentiate personal anxiety and depression from the systemic? What can neuroscience tell us about this aspect of constellation work, and how can constellations help us and our clients during this time in the world’s history? And how can constellations create opportunities to support our clients to engage with and enjoy life and nurture the enormous love they have for the world and the people around them.
Constellations are a way of unwinding and unraveling the frozen strands of trauma and buried nervous-system vows from our essential beings, so that we can flourish, live, and contribute our gifts with ease.
This is part 1 of a 4-part constellation masterclass series: Deep Play at the End of the World. This year’s masterclass series will explore how we can leverage our constellation work for healing at a time of immense complexity where we and our clients face intense stressors from climate crisis to pandemic to political issues. How can our constellation work allow for more joy, more wonder, more play and more life satisfaction, even in the face of grief and threat? Join Sarah Peyton for this exploration of what neuroscience and constellations can do for us.
You are welcome to register for any of the four individual events in the 4-part series, however, registering for the full 4-Part Immersion might be a good fit if you’d like to learn to use constellations in your work or your life, as well as receive access to the bonus and savings.
The course will meet via online (zoom video conference). Recordings will be made available.

What to Expect:
Each day we alternate between short lectures on neuroscience and constellation concepts with mini-constellations to explore and practice the concepts, and then we do large group constellations. If you’re a visual learner you can imagine small islands of didactic learning, surrounded by slightly larger islands of small-group learning, and then interspersed with large, full-group constellations. Small group work will be done in small groups or dyads via breakout groups on zoom.
Constellations facilitated by Sarah will alternate with Constellations facilitated by Masterclass participants, interspersed with large and small group learning. Both being a facilitator and being a seeker happen by lottery. Only participants who have attended other master series sessions with Sarah will be eligible to be facilitators. Not all participants will have a chance to be a seeker or a facilitator.
Over this 4-day immersion week participants will:
- Understand collective trauma and its impacts on people’s sense of meaning, energy, and agency
- Learn to differentiate personal experiences from systemic and how to use constellations to acknowledge and transform anxiety and depression
- Investigate the relationship between constellations, metaphor, and how to capture and reflect enormity so that healing and integration are the result
Who is this Class for:
These sessions are intended for people who are interested in learning about facilitating constellations and how constellation work transforms and heals. Both experienced and new facilitators are welcome. Student facilitators will have opportunities for supervision and support from Sarah Peyton. Sessions are not intended for personal work for participants, however, sometimes, personal growth and transformation happen coincidently, but it isn’t the main focus of the offerings in the masterclass series.

- This work is not therapy and is not a substitute for therapy. If you have a sense that you would be destabilized by yourself or others speaking about difficult events, then this course may not be for you. While we hope that the processes and information that we share can be of use in your journey, we do not have the resources to support extreme psychological difficulties..
