Family Constellations, profound and healing
Imagine a constellation in the sky -- a grouping of stars that depicts you and your ancestors.
Whether you observe or actively participate, you’ll learn a lot about yourself and how you are a part of those who came before you.
We recommend early registration for all groups and trainings by contacting Karen.
What happens in a Family Constellation?
Someone identifies a personal issue – relationship, business, children, family or health – and selects group members to represent family members who are placed in open space, which is called "the field." The positioning reveals the dynamics – both hidden and evident – within the family system.
The facilitator repositions the people to restore respect, dignity and love, especially those who’ve been excluded or forgotten. As reconciliation is achieved, the genuine love and strength in the family can begin to flow.
Each person who attends a constellation session, whether participant or observer, can experience the profound effects of this change.
What if I don't know what problem I wish to address?
People who attend a group constellation session may participate in several ways:
Do you offer individual sessions?
Constellations are most effective in group settings. However, there are times when individual sessions are helpful to introduce the process to the person, gain information about family history or address concerns that are initially difficult to reveal in a group setting. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Karen offers video conference sessions.
