Family Constellations Workshops

 Family Constellations: Healing Our Family of Origin

“Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.”

Mother Teresa 

We often face issues not belonging to us but family of origin entanglements and identifications. Through  family constellations balance, respect, dignity and love get restored, making the individual freer to live and love in newer and fuller ways.

Family Constellations is an alive, uniquely fresh phenomenological experience that exposes the hidden dynamics within families that are behind the traumas and misfortunes experienced in life and that often get played out within our present relationships, our marriages and family life. Family Constellations have the potential to touch our deepest cores, transforming our lives and the lives of those we love. The innocence of a child wants only to love his or her family, and children often sacrifice their own best interests in the blind belief that this suffering will ensure a “belonging” to the family. Family Constellations bring the hidden loyalties to light so that love can flow in a healthier way.

Love and belonging are cornerstones to fulfilling relationships. Disturbances in these patterns of love and attachment create havoc in families, sometimes for generations. When the flow of love and acceptance is interrupted, the soul suffers. With Constellations we uncover the disruptions and entanglements so that we, and our family members, can find strength, dignity, belonging and love.  Profound healing often results. When we bring love and respect to our family and our lineage, love can become a healing agent in all aspects of our lives.

We explore personal issues related to illness, split-off parts of the Self, and difficult situations in work and in relationships. This workshop is also appropriate for those in the helping professions who would like to cultivate systemic constellations skills.

These workshop sessions assist in restoring balance love between all members of one’s family. Everyone attending the workshop is able to feel the effect of these entanglements and the freedom that results from their resolution.
