The I and the Self: A Dynamic Constellation Workshop

  • Moving Visions Dance

Join us for the next workshop in Omega's Movin' with the Spirit series, facilitated by holistic movement specialist Apollonia Holzer.

Dynamic Constellation Work is a facilitated process that can reveal hidden dynamics and bring resolution to internal issues within any relational system – personal, professional or organizational. We invite you to join Apollonia as she uses movement to guide participants to explore the ‘I’ as an individual in the world and the ‘Self’ as the spiritual connection to everything.
