Unfortunately, the (live) seminar with Dr. Franz Ruppert, scheduled for April 24 and 25, 2021, in Wezemaal/Rotselaar (Belgium), cannot take place in its original, physical form. However, we are extremely excited to instead offer you the opportunity to attend a live online seminar and lecture with Dr. Ruppert on April 24 and 25, 2021. Given our experience with the highly successful online seminar with Dr. Franz Ruppert on November 7 and 8, 2020, we are confident that this online seminar will be just as inspiring as the physical seminar has been in previous years.
Content and method
Theories and methods are always developing. Dr. Ruppert will share his recent findings with you both during the online practical work with so-called ‘self-encounters’ (or ‘identity constellations’) and during the online lecture.
Professionals working in people-oriented fields (mental health care, (para)medical professions, coaching and counselling, youth care, education, childcare, etc.)
An online identity constellation seminar – what to expect?
Working with desires and resonance persons:
During this identity constellation seminar, the work is essentially no different from the work we do when we are gathered in the same room. Someone submits a self-enquiry (a desire or question), which Dr. Franz Ruppert then works with, using his IoPT method. We will determine at the time of the seminar who the lucky ones are to submit such a self-enquiry. This will be decided via a drawing of lots (online systems exist for this purpose as well). The role of resonance persons (representatives) – taking on an identity to resonate or represent – is the same as usual, too. The only difference is that everyone is in their own workspace and connected to others via a screen. Surprisingly, this turns out to be just as effective as resonating/representing while in the same room. Both Dr. Franz Ruppert and Margriet Wentink (Interakt) have extensive (international) experience in this online version of working together. It is astonishing to think of all the global possibilities we may still discover now that online working has become so much more the norm. As is the case with live seminars, participation in the drawing of lots, or being available to take on the role of a resonance person, is not mandatory. You are completely free to decide whether you wish to do so or not.
The theme, the program, and the organization of the seminar and lecture
The most recent work by Dr. Franz Ruppert raises a question even more pressingly than in previous years: Who am I and what do I want?
Who am I and what do I want? Self-encounters through the resonance method will therefore be the theme of the online seminar.
The theme of the online lecture is:
Who am I in a traumatized and traumatizing society?
Language of seminar and lecture
English is the language of instruction. This is true for both the seminar and the lecture. There will be no continuous or simultaneous translation, but we can of course help you to formulate your question in English if necessary. This is a change from the seminar in Culemborg, where German would have been the language of instruction.

Number of participants
Since we always have long waiting lists for our seminars, many people have said: ‘That’s great, an online seminar can accommodate many more participants’. However, we have decided to limit the size of the group to that of the group we would welcome at a ‘real life’ seminar. This means we have room for up to 120 participants per day (including organizers and staff). After all, the work we do requires participants to make themselves quite vulnerable. Therefore, we want to make sure that we can provide a safe environment and appropriate conditions to work in, even when the work is done online. More participants will be admitted to the lecture.
Questions and responses from participants and ‘First Aid for Trauma Triggers’
In the course of the online seminar, there will be an opportunity for participants to ask Dr. Franz Ruppert questions about the processes, coaching and theory. There will also be time to meet each other for discussions in so-called break-out rooms. Because it is impossible to meet other participants during coffee or lunch breaks, as you normally would, we believe that such break-out opportunities offer an important respite from being alone in your workspace. Moreover, we have made additional arrangements for those who become triggered by a certain process and need a sympathetic ear or a ‘clear, stable and regulating presence’. The exact details of these arrangements will be sent to you upon registration approximately two weeks prior to the seminar.
Use of Zoom
Both the seminar and the lecture will be offered via Zoom, an online environment that is reliable, private and very suitable for seminars like this. To be able to participate, you will need a laptop or computer with a good, stable internet connection and a (free) Zoom account, which can be created as soon as you have installed Zoom on your computer. Two weeks prior to the seminar, you will receive a document from us containing instructions on how to install Zoom and create an account, as well as a brief Zoom manual that includes user tips regarding the Zoom features we will be using during the seminar. Even though it is really easy to set up a Zoom account, we ask you to please reserve some time before the seminar to review the steps.
Privacy and confidentiality
As is the case during live seminars, we will do all we can to ensure confidentiality and protect the privacy of participants while working online. For this reason, we ask every participant to sign a privacy and confidentiality agreement before the start of the seminar and lecture. Filling out this (online) form is required to receive the link that allows you to log in to the Zoom environment in which we work. The form includes agreements about the strict personal nature of your participation, the absence of others in your workspace, and the non-permissibility of video or audio recording.
Given the short timeframe and exceptional circumstances that make it necessary to provide the seminar in online form, your registration for the online seminar and/or the online lecture is binding, and your participation cannot be cancelled after you have registered.Click here to read the Terms and Conditions that apply to your participation in the seminar with Dr. Franz Ruppert
We are very pleased to facilitate this online seminar with Dr. Franz Ruppert on Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy (IoPT).
During this online seminar, we will act in the same manner as during a live seminar. This means that it is important that all participants treat each other with respect and care, and are seriously engaged in the processes. While the seminar is educational in nature, its central issue concerns psychological and emotional trauma.
We want to ensure that this seminar takes place in a safe environment that fosters personal development for all. It is therefore necessary that everyone who attends the seminar complies with the applicable Terms and Conditions. Please read the Terms and Conditions carefully before you register, so that we can guarantee that the seminar environment is safe and respectful, as all participate adhere to the same basic rules.
- To participate in the seminar, registration is mandatory. Non-registered visitors will not be admitted to the Zoom event. At the start of the seminar and lecture, all participants will be identified and verified. Non-verified visitors will be unable to enter the ‘seminar room’.
- Please note that each registration only allows access to one participant. Multiple participants (all individually registered) who are part of the same household may participate via a shared screen/laptop.
- Every participant is obliged to expressly agree to the Terms and Conditions of non-disclosure via an online form. Without this agreement, you will not be able to attend the seminar. Please fill out the agreement form before the seminar begins. The form will be shared with you one week prior to the seminar.
- The online seminar specifically asks of its participants:
- The willingness to familiarize yourself with Zoom (safe and easy-to-use software) – a Zoom manual will be shared with you two weeks prior to the seminar;
- The availability of well-functioning technical equipment with audio and video functions;
- A stable Internet connection.
- This seminar and all information are shared on a confidential basis. By attending the seminar, you agree not to share with third parties any information (personal details, names, stories, etc.) relating to participants or persons mentioned in the course of the seminar.
- Due to the private and confidential nature of the seminar, any recording of any type (e.g., video or audio) is not permitted during the seminar.
- We ask you to attend the seminar in a space that is completely private and in which you are the only one present, unless you are sharing your screen/laptop under the conditions mentioned in Article 2. Spectators or bystanders, such as your children, spouse or partner, are not allowed. You are allowed to excuse yourself from the seminar to go to another room if necessary, but in that time, no one else should have access to the Zoom event for whatever reason (even just for reasons of curiosity).
- This online seminar is about trauma and emotions. During the seminar, a hotline is available for emotional support if you start feeling triggered.
- If, during the seminar, you feel yourself becoming overwhelmed by the processes, you could choose to:
- Mute the video and spend time processing the emotions yourself;
- Turn off the video (while remaining logged in), have something to drink, take a walk, or listen to music;
- Leave the seminar completely.
Whatever you choose to do, we ask that you contact us and inform us directly via WhatsApp.
- During the seminar, we use WhatsApp to provide all necessary technical and emotional support. We therefore ask you to install WhatsApp on your mobile phone. One week prior to the seminar, you will receive more information on our use of WhatsApp during the seminar.
- We will be working with a therapeutic method. Please note, however, that the seminar is not a substitute for psychological, therapeutic treatment. If you are experiencing psychological symptoms or problems, it is your own responsibility to seek help by consulting a doctor or health care professional. If you need help finding the right kind of support, please contact us.
- Unfortunately, given the short timeframe and exceptional circumstances that make it necessary to provide the seminar in online form, cancellation of (part of) your registration for the seminar or lecture is not possible, in contrast to our Other Terms and Conditions. Should you be unable to attend, you will not be entitled to a refund of the amount you paid for the online seminar and/or the online lecture.
The difference between the amount you paid for the live seminar and the amount owed for the online seminar and/or online lecture, will remain due.
If you have any questions or needs for assistance, please contact our secretary’s office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
