Anu Azrael

Open Stage, Relational Being

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ― Rumi

BIOGRAPHY *Required:

I trained in Family Constellation with Svagito Liebermeister. I followed him around the globe for about 8yrs. I wanted to be him. Then I grew up and started being true to myself and my own unique way. Osho was a catalyst too.

I also studied Constellation-work with various others. I have spent the last 6yrs studying both with Daan Van Kampenhout in Systemic Ritual & learning in the field of Somatic Experiencing.

In 2018 I trained in California, in an embodied approach to overcoming the fear of public speaking. After all this seeking I return to a simple truth. There is nothing more valuable than LOVE. Our ability to give it and to receive it. All that is important is removing the blocks to it. Out of this simple truth the work of ‘Relational Being’ was born.

Warm welcome!


Open Stage is a space to express and be seen in your light

Relational Being
'Cultivating aliveness in relationship'. Relational Being supports us to overcome whatever is blocking us from living our lives more fully and to remember who we really are
