Movements of Transformation

A six day intensive  | April 16 -22 , 2023 | Jan Jacob Stam 


Transformation is a process after which something fundamental has shifted in the identity of the person, family, organization or society. And you don’t know into what this identity has shifted, until you have reached it or it has found you. That makes this process of transformation more an adventure then a journey. On a journey you know where you’re heading, in an adventure you don’t know where your will be next. 

During this intensive week you will be learning about transformation from a systemic perspective, you might be submerged in transformational processes yourself on the levels of transformation in society, in organizations or families and in human beings.

Learning about

What transforms naturally, can transform relatively smoothly. What transforms by will-power or any other motivating force, requires a lot of precision, holding space and leadership.

  • What ís transformation? 
  • How is it different from processes like development, change or transition and re-set.
  • Which types of interventions are required?
  • Which concepts and tools can I or can we apply? 
  • Where does transformation start? At the whole or at the parts?
  • How to deal with the fact that in transformation processes there is no ‘dot on the horizon’ to aim at?

Learning in a collective way

The world is not the same as one or two years ago. Transformation wants to be in many places and is rattling at our doors. Patterns are working hard to keep continuity alive and to keep transformation outside the door. We are all in these movements. We also will learn by being part of  these impulses. Ánd we will also learn in a collective way. 


Since this program might be transformational itself, we can’t give a detailed program from day to day. But the essence of transformation will at all times be in the room.


  • 14 lessons on transformation
  • Types of interventions 
  • Tools for transformation
  • Systemic diagnose
  • True art: the core of this training is ‘interventionship’: every participant is invited to practice ánd calibrate his or her potential in stepping into the unknown of bringing a system into a transformational state.
  • Designing Interventions
  • Cases, brought by participants. Personal, work-related, organizational or societal 
  • Horse coaching and other surprising forms.

How do we work?

We will meet each other as human beings, in our capacities as facilitators, coaches, consultants, leaders, members of social movements, searchers, adventurers and whoever we are. 

Typical is to first have an introduction into a topic and then practice, explore, reflect, feedforward and practice.... 

What is this not?

A training in constellations. Although we will use constellation forms for learning purposes, most or even all of systemic interventions are possible without having to use a constellation. 

What is required?

To have some experience with constellation work and a sense of ‘wanting or having to be there’.

Being prepared to practice, to fail, to try again, to laugh, to be frustrated, to encounter fears and to harvest and find upgraded versions of yourself.
