Stephan Hausner is the author of an amazing book Even If It Costs Me My Life: Systemic Constellations and Serious Illness.
As a master facilitator and teacher of Family and Systemic Constellations, Hausner has become internationally renowned for specializing in illness and health, particularly working with illnesses that seem resistant to conventional medical treatment.
I haven’t yet had the chance to study with Stephan, although I have read his book (twice!) and include it on my reading list for my trainees. And now I’m in the middle of watching a wonderful-wow five-part documentary produced by Ali Mezey about his profound work.
In the documentary series, Stephan shows how transgenerational trauma influences illness and how hidden loyalties and entanglements to the ancestral system hinder physical healing. It is designed for people who want greater insight about their own illness or the illnesses of people in their lives. It is also an excellent resource for professionals of all kinds who want to work more effectively with people who are ill.
Each of the five films details Stephan’s expert application of Family Constellation Work in healing transgenerational traumas that influence illness. The series is titled "Re-thinking Illness: A Transgenerational Approach" and I recently had the opportunity to interview Ali, a Family Constellations facilitator in Los Angeles, about her magnificent undertaking in the making of this series.
My YouTube interview here gives an overview of the making of the series, and Ali tells why she chose to spotlight a facilitator working with illness rather than the typical emotional and relationship struggles that are more often addressed in this kind of work.
“These films are an unprecedented opportunity to heal, learn, and be inspired,” she says.
For more information about the series, to watch an enticing trailer and to order the series (available by DVD and streaming), visit Ali’s website here.
