Systemic/Family Constellation, what I like to call a Constellation Circle, is another tool I love to introduce my clients to. Bert Hellinger, a German psychotherapist and the founder of Family Constellation, observed that we all “take on” the destructive family patterns of our ancestors on a subconscious level in an attempt to “belong” in our families and society. Over time, these destructive patterns in our subconscious become thoughts and beliefs that we experience as anxiety, anger, guilt, pain, and much more.
Hellinger called these patterns entanglements.
A child often makes the choice to sacrifice his or her own best interest to ease the suffering of a parent or other family member. This subconscious mechanism, of course, is a futile attempt that serves neither the child nor the family member the child is trying to save.
HERE IS HOW
Constellations allow us to break entanglements by bringing the subconscious patterns to light – into our consciousness – which allow us the recognition that we have a choice.
Choice allows for a new life pattern to be created, designed by connection vs. separation and exclusion.
Constellation Circles take place in a supportive group setting. As with CranioSacral Therapy, the complaint can be a bodily ailment or something of an emotional nature. Our bodies are much more connected than we realize.
A Constellation Circle will not only shed light on destructive patterns and entanglements, it will provide you with a solution
Constellation Circles are opportunities to help others work through their own subconscious material, indirectly helping yourself in the process, and to experience the fulfilling gratitude that comes from being there for others.
It’s nourishment for the soul.
Constellation Circles are held every 3rd Sunday of the month.
