The workshop diary
Friday 16th and Saturday 17th July, 2021 – 2 Days In Person
Topic: Open Workshop (in-person, central London, UK)
In this open, any-subject workshop you can explore how systemic perspectives and the method of visual mapping and facilitated constellations clarify and resolve. Whether you are facing an apparently intractable issue, a complex decision or reflecting on existential questions you will find a step towards better through the experiential process of this workshop. With John Whittington, in-person, central London.
“Using the constellations methodology John can get to the heart of an issue in a way I never imagined possible.”
“This workshop was a really useful way to spend two days! John’s holding of the space is a thing to marvel at. You feel safe, welcome, heard and seen and even if you didn’t get the opportunity to explore your own challenges, bearing witness to others as they work through their own stories is a privilege and offers significant learnings.”

Topic: Explore your relationship with leadership
‘Leadership’ is one of the most loaded words in the English language and finding our own version and expression of our authentic leadership behaviours can take a lifetime. How we ‘show up’ as leaders – in business or other organisational contexts, or as parents – is deeply connected to our own inner map and meaning-making. This workshop will enable participants to map their inner relationship with leadership and find a deeper connection to inner authority. With John Whittington, online. Available to members of the online community which you are welcome to join here.
“John’s style is reasuuring, measured and you feel very safe. A master at keeping ‘compassionate distance.'”

Topic: Explore your relationship with FOOD
Our relationship with food and eating is influenced by many things, including our inner relationship with our parents and our ancestral patterns around diet, scarcity and abundance. Beyond those fundamentals we may carry the ‘weight’ of our mothers’ pain, or our fathers absence. We may eat too much or not enough to comfort and calm. We may be caught in repeating patterns in our relationship systems or be trying to include someone who was excluded. Our relationship with food is, rather like money, a useful barometer of our underlying dynamics and deep patterns. We can only change our relationship with food when we are prepared to look a little deeper. With John Whittington, online.
Please note that this workshop is open to all who are open to looking into their personal and family-of-origin patterns and dynamics and who are members of the online community. To gain access to that community you are welcome to join here.
“John’s insight and quiet wisdom are inspiring.”
Please Note: From March 2021 the articles on this site will only be available through our new private online community HERE. The workshops will continue to be freely available until July and then also only available through the online community.
You will be welcome to join us
The history of these workshops

Constellation workshops with John Whittington
I began training in family, professional and organisational constellations in 2004, whilst also training as a personal and executive coach. I facilitated family and personal issues constellations in public workshops for five years (2006 – 2011) to deepen and develop my understanding and experience of system dynamics. Meanwhile, in 2009, I launched the Coaching Constellations trainings in order to share the stance, principles and practices of systemic coaching with others. As a result of the level of interest I wrote a book on the subject, published in 2012 and again, in 2nd edition and then, in fully updated and expanded 3rd edition in 2020.
All this led naturally to the creation of these Life Love Leadership workshops which I facilitate using constellations as the primary methodology. The workshops, held in a confidential small group environment, are designed to respectfully illuminate, clarify and resolve challenges, dilemmas and decisions: in life, in personal relationships and in working life. The workshops are open to those with interest whether new to constellations or already familiar with this remarkable methodology. At each workshop I offer structured introductory exercises and group constellations and enjoy responding to the needs of the participants in the moment in order to facilitate deeper understanding and fresh insights for everyone present.
