What we're about

Family Constellations is a healing process that explores how hidden dynamics in our family system can influence our thoughts, feelings, relationships and even health issues. Constellations are models of the family system that reveal how experiences of the past can dominate our present. Often without being aware, we are reliving the suffering of our ancestors.

In Family Constellations we connect to our immediate family as well as ancestors through a field of energy that allows us to discover the truth behind shame, guilt, trauma, mental illness, disease, and the damaging effects of violence, war, immigration and more. We can begin to see how the past gets in the way of love, wealth, success, healthy marriage and our inner happiness. Family Constellations can also help us understand our relationship with our parents and its ongoing effect on our life.

A powerful insight of Bert Hellinger, the founder of Family Constellations, is that each family system has natural laws that keep the family in balance and allow love to flow. In family systems where these laws are violated, shame, guilt, rage or trauma can become normal to the family members.

One of the most important natural laws is that all members of a family system belong and must have a place. If someone in the system is not given a place, then younger members can become "entangled" with the issues surrounding the one who is excluded or even take on the excluded member’s difficult fate. This is particularly true with ancestors who have been forgotten or shunned or become a secret. These unconscious entanglements are behind most of the issues that are explored in Family Constellations.

Releasing these entanglements can free us to live our own life and often help to restore balance and love to the family system and perhaps our greater communities. This release can help clarify what must be seen, what can be left behind and what we can honor in a different way so that our lives move forward in a good and healthy direction.

In Family Constellations, we set up a family system with volunteer representatives, objects or guided visualizations. In a typical workshop, participants are chosen to represent members or elements of the family that is being addressed. Tuning in through the energy that connects us to our family and ancestors, representatives can give us information about what has happened and perhaps clues about what can be changed, released or acknowledged to create healing for the client and the system. The process is mysterious but truthful and transformative.

In an individual session, we use paper, objects or visualizations to represent the family system. As in a workshop, hidden and unexpected dynamics operating within the system are revealed and addressed in a way that aims to find a healthy and respectful place for all members of the system.

Family Constellations: Releasing Victim-Perpetrator Dynamics and Patterns​

Every family system has the experience of the victim-perpetrator dynamics. When these traumas are unresolved, they continue to create suffering for those who come after until this original experience is allowed to be cleared and resolved into peace. Sometimes there are multiple events over many generations that become systemic patterns that require healing.

In this workshop we will explore how to find reconciliation and resolution for these dynamics and patterns to restore healthy balance and boundaries for the client and their family system. The workshop will include an overview of the topic, guided meditation and family constellations several participants.

-----------------------------------

Family Constellations explore how deep forces in our family systems, sometimes over multiple generations, can influence our thoughts, behaviors and emotional experiences. Tapping into a “knowing field” that surrounds each family allows you and volunteer representatives to explore this living phenomenon.

Participants will have the opportunity to participate in creating constellations for several other participants to create a healing experience for everyone.

Participants will also experience a guided constellations visualization.
During this online workshop, we search for possible solutions that restore order and balance to the family system and resolve specific and larger issues in a good way. Our ultimate goal is to restore our deeper connection with what makes us human and with our ancestors who came before us.
