Family Constellations is an alive, uniquely phenomenological – spiritual – experience exposing hidden dynamics within families’ traumas and/or misfortunes, often played out within friendships, marriages, and family life. Family Constellations can touch our deepest core, transforming us and the lives of those we love. The innocence of a child wants only to love his or her family, and will often sacrifice their own best interests in a blind belief suffering will ensure a belonging to the family. This workshop brings such hidden loyalties to light so that love can flow in a healthier way.

We often displace issues belonging to our family of origin – called entanglements and identifications. Family Constellations help regain balance, respect, dignity and love, freeing us to live and love more fully by healing our past, thus offering greater capacity to love, by uncovering disruptions, and thereby freeing one to find strength, health, dignity, belonging, and love in our present lives today.

Profound healing often results as we explore personal issues related to illness, split-off parts of the Self, and difficulties in work and relationship situations. Those in the helping professions can cultivate systemic constellation skills into their own practices. Attendees are able to feel the effects of this safe environment workshop and gain freedom resulting from powerful resolutions.
