Family Constellation Workshop
Family constellation therapy helps you understand the entanglement in your family of origin or present family. This is also known as systemic family therapy. It was first developed by a German therapist, Berg Hellinger.
In this therapeutic approach, you are considered not as an individual, but as part of a greater family system. However, the whole family does not need to be present for therapy sessions. Our daily behaviour is influenced by the unspoken laws operating in the family. There is often a pattern in the family on the same issues.
Through being born in a family, we inherit not only our biological genes, but also our belief systems and behaviour patterns.
Our family is an energy field within which we are held, each in our unique positions, from the time we are born. We may feel that we have been held in a pattern of problems for eternity. Family Constellations offer us a chance to understand these patterns at the deepest levels. They enable us to bring our patterns to resolution and thus find peace and happiness.
Love in a family system flows best when a systemic order or law is respected. In family constellation, these orders are discovered and you not only understand it with a conscious mind, but also get attuned to it. Family constellation is done in a group.
Family constellation is a good tool to understand ones family dynamics and also to resolve the energetic entanglements which are not visible at the surface levels.
A picture of the family energy field is created and one is able to face family roots more fully. We understand our in-depth connections to our family soul. It allows us to 'let go' of that which does not let us grow to our fullest potential.
In this process, you are asked by the facilitator to select the representative of your family out of the group, intuitively. You also pick up someone from the group to represent your own self. Again, as per your intuition, you place the representative, wherever you want in the hall. After this, you sit back and watch the drama of your own life unfold till it is over.
In constellation therapy and seminars, members of the large group are affected and touched by another's work. A healing experience with you will have a healing effect on anyone in the room with similar issues.
Typically in this systemic approach workshops are done in groups and are for half day.
