Ways of Participation


Participation in the Constellations Workshops and the Thematic Modules is open to any participant. You can attend any Module or Workshop you are interested in.

The Thematic Modules are separate from the Constellations Workshops. You can participate in one, or the other, or both.

Throughout the entire curriculum, you can participate in one event, or several or all events.

You don’t have to commit to the Facilitator Training to attend a Thematic Module or a Constellations Workshop.

Full Training

If you wish to train as a facilitator in Systemic Constellations, please check out the requirements further below.

  You can complete all modules, workshops, and other events at your own convenience: at any time, in any order.

The Mandatory Modules will be offered at least once within the required 2-year period, but – based on student demand – can be scheduled more than once. 

This applies to all other events and requirements, too.


One of the best parts of participating in any of our events is that you instantly and automatically become a part of a wonderful community.

No commitment is required – yet the people you share the experience of a constellation with will most likely stay in your mind and heart for a long time.

We are a bunch of people interested in learning about ourselves, about the human mind and the human condition, and who are interested in exploring, experimenting, and discovering. 

Even more so, we are interested in having fun together and connecting with each other on a really deep level. 

And did I mention having fun together …? 🙂

Anna’s ability to use metaphors and analogies to explain even the most complex concepts is just awesome.

Her way of speaking in metaphors is an art form in itself, and learning from her is not only the highest level of education but also pure entertainment. She is funny, creative, and while she is really serious and to the point, she can turn everything into something humorous! A great teacher indeed!

She is everything I need in finding myself out. Dr Fekete is very insightful and I look forward to continue working with her to fix myself.
She is a great listener and provided great questions for me to explore. She was very helpful and I'd recommend her strongly.
