Family Constellation Work: Sometimes our way of being connected in our family is to suffer like those who came before us. When, for example, there's been a painful event in one generation, someone in a later generation may attempt to carry its weight, taking on the suffering of a parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt or uncle. Illnesses, depression, anxiety, recurrent fears, addictions, aloneness and failed relationships can all be forms of this unspoken family loyalty. Constellation Work allows us to break unconscious patterns and reestablish our vital strength, tranquility and dignity.
How it works: Representatives from the group are chosen in place of actual family members. Hidden loyalties within the family system are then brought to the surface. As movements of peace and reconciliation arise, the genuine love and strength in a family can begin to flow in a healthy way. Both participants and observers can experience the profound effects of this work.
