International Systemic Constellation Association
International Systemic Constellations Association ISCA came into being as a result of the excitement and creativity generated by the Systemic Constellation approach throughout the world, with a mission to serve as a hub & holder of systemic constellation work in all its settings and applications, for present and future generations of constellators.
Worldwide, ISCA is the only international Association with a strict inclusive alignment.
ISCA considers all constellators to belong to the international Constellating Community, no matter what their philosophy in their work might be and no matter which way they might work in with the method – as long as they share our ethics. With this character ISCA strives to grow the number of their members in order to connect, interact and support one another.
ISCA Regional Chapters
Regional Chapters is born from the idea of members of ISCA community, in the past two gatherings in Lovran and Zagreb (Croatia), to participate in direct ways with ISCA´s vision and mission in their own countries and through their own language, developing, sharing and expanding ISCA through their part of the world.
By the end of 2018, through the last selection and election period of our last board held by Max Dauskardt (Chair), it was decided to give birth to Regional Chapters as a formal character of ISCA. Alexandra Tatiana Finkelstein Franyuti was elected as the 1st Head of Regional Chapters with the new board of ISCA on July 1st. 2019, for the period of 2019 – 2021. In July 2020, ISCA Board accepted a long-standing proposal by its member Nikos Vayiakakos to establish the ISCA Hellenic Chapter in affiliation with EIDAS Institute-Network. They appointed Nikos as Head of the ISCA Hellenic Chapter with the purpose to support the constellation community in Greece and Cyprus and to reach-out to Greek-speaking individuals worldwide.
Being ISCA is not a legal certification or training entity, but mainly a systemic community platform that holds a significant space for shared connection and interaction internationally, we serve each other supporting our growth, experience, insight, practice and knowledge for a global belonging in the constellation worldwide systemic community holding to our practice and code of ethics.
