For many Europeans the Brexit decision of the British people has been a shock. Some perceived it as the starting point for similar decisions in other countries. Some feared the energizing effect for the antidemocratic populist forces in many of the European Countries.
The IEC-Constellation process took place before the Brexit decision. The feed-back of one of the observers, coming from Britain and personally voting for Remain, sheds an interesting light on what happened later:
He reports, that within his national group, he felt a profound split, for him an embarrassing experience. Being used to normally going to the centre of actions, he remained – to his surprise – outside the circle and observed from a distance the intense emotional feelings and actions which expressed themselves in the middle of the space (of Europe).
A deep feeling of discomfort arose, perceiving what happened there as “hysterical, self-indulgent and self centre”. But by contrast, after being invited to join in, he felt “disappointed that I hadn’t felt a deeper personal connection with the process. Personally I felt I had to centre myself…I felt a vital part on the periphery, a witness to the process of the centre, holding a space for this, but not at the centre, accepting of other countries processes, playing my role, my country’s role.”
Coming in the end to an evaluation of his own feelings in the situation and connecting them with the British situation, he concludes: “I don’t know what the outcome of the UK EU Referendum will be. If it is a vote for leave, this maybe what my country needs. A time for introspection, a time for coming to terms with our empire past and moving beyond this belief into a real desire to co-operate with others wholeheartedly for the world/cosmic good but as a wise mentor at a light distance, rather than in the thick of it.!”
