I have been thinking, contemplating and working with this theme for over a decade, written an article in The Knowing Field (Spring 2012) and recorded an interview with Michael Reddy (June 2012). I would like to open up a conversation because I think we need new ways of working and the time is now. I am sure some of you have been playing with similar ideas and we could all enrich each others’ work. Perhaps next step could be a zoom meeting/process?
Thank you for your interest. Elmar

1 occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold: I was in the liminal space between past and present | the paintings in this exhibition are the result of recent investigation into liminal states.
2 relating to a transitional or initial stage of a process: that liminal period when a child is old enough to begin following basic rules but is still too young to do so consistently.
Explore the space and interaction between the facilitator, the field and everyone else present, like the client, the representatives and the audience
Are there boundaries, what they are and can we go beyond them; can we meet in the field
How can we get out of the way as a facilitator
Do we really trust the field
Is there such a thing as the field and if so, what does it know that we don’t know
Is there a Collective Consciousness to tap into
How to get beyond my limitations and blindspots
If I can tap into the field and sense it, can every other person? What if we all tap into the field simultaneously and let the field arise?
Are all issues the same and do they exist because we can resolve them?
The solution of the problem arises with the problem and are just the other side of the coin
What is the issue teaching us and protecting us from happening

Liminal Constellations, a different way of facilitation

Other topics of interest:
When we are “Enough” within ourselves (as in the phrase: “I am enough”) we see the same in others and many (if not most) conflicts would not exist. When we are Enough we are at peace and we co-create. This idea is stemming from my work with Michael Blumenstein, translated into a Constellation process.
Co-Arising and Constellation work
What are the parallels between the Buddhist notion that everything coexists and is co-created, nothing exists by itself and what we are looking at in the field and in the constellation work?
