The foundation of systemic phenomenological work

Life and Death. Where are you?

Maaike van der Heiden

Join this workshop at Timeless in the WE!


A personal and collective exploration on how your contract with life influences you, your facilitation and your relations.

How is death part of your life? From the moment you become a living system, you carry death with you. But how?

What is your contract with life? Is it something like: I’m here, but deep inside I’m not here? Or maybe: I do live but only to serve other people? Or maybe:  I live but I’m closer friends with death? Or do you take life fully, and maybe turn your back to death?

In our work we encounter life and death, and everything in between.

Sometimes it’s about taking life, sometimes about taking finiteness, may the dead be dead, being closer friends with death than life, wanting to live but being afraid of living, living to the max or drawn to something dark and unknown. And so many more varieties.

How is this for you? Where are you?

How is this influencing you and your facilitatorship? How can you be fully present with these existential topics?

Bert Hellinger said once: ‘The ones who have the death behind them, are free.’

In this workshop you’ll be with your contract of life, and death. Explore and share how this is embodied in you. Consciously and unconsciously.

A deep, intimate encounter with all, with us, with yourself.

About the Bert Hellinger Institute

People are constantly evolving. With each other, without each other. In families, in teams, in organizations. Systemic thinking makes us aware of the “why” of our being and doing. Organizational and family constellations create room for movement. The BHI provides courses, workshops and training programs in the field of systemic work, constellations, leadership and coaching. This is how we contribute to the development of people, organizations and society.

For up-and-coming and established leaders. An initiative of the Bert Hellinger Institute.
