My name is Yuval Allon. I live in Auroville, Tamil Nadu, India. Auroville is an ideological international community with over 2000 members from 40 different countries (www.auroville.org). In Auroville creativity, entrepreurship, social justice, spirituality, nationalities, races, ideals, empowerment, survival, cultures and many other aspects meet, dance, mix, collide intensively in an ongoing exciting experiment. I coach, consult, facilitate personal development with local organizations, groups, public open workshops and also work with individuals one-to-one. One of the tools I use is constellation work.
Apart from my work as facilitator I have managed companies in The Netherlands, Israel, Denmark and Turkey. In 2003 I started volunteering in India 2 months a year and in 2008 I joined Auroville. I am certified facilitator for Constellation Work, certified facilitator for The Human Element workshops. I completed the full coaching course of CTI, The Coaching Institute. Presently I participate in an ongoing non-violence communication study/practice group and a mediation study/practice group.
I am a member of the International Coaching Federation and served on one of their committees in 2008 and 2009.
I started to participate regularly in constellations in 1996, joined a 2 year facilitators course licensed by Bert Hellinger in Belgium in 2001 and was certified in 2003.
The course was a big boost for my personal growth, it opened up my intuition and added systemic work skills to my toolbox.
Next to working with groups I also use this systemic work in one-to-one personal sessions. In one-to-one close sessions I have used various objects to represent persons or elements in the clients constellation and I have seen other facilitators using all kind of objects as well. Papers, chairs, shoes, puppets, coconuts, leaves, cushions, bricks, stones etc etc.
Then one day I thought: If in one-to-one sessions it works by using these substitutes for live-representatives then why not through symbols on a screen, representing persons or elements of a constellation?
And so the idea of virtual constellations was born and you are invited to experiment with it.
