Urban Spirit: Family Constellation
May 20 @ 8:00 AM - May 21 @ 5:00 AM
Despite their greatest efforts many people struggle to live their lives to the full and to relate well in their closest family relationships. Some describe the experience as if there are powerful forces that seem to thwart them in their lives, and feel entangled within the dynamics of their family as if in a spider’s web. These dynamics are like the wind. The wind is not visible but its presence is felt from the disturbance it leaves in its wake and it’s impact on our body and senses. Entanglements in family dynamics can result in relationship difficulties between partners, between parents and children, between siblings, and other important relationships. They can also contribute to other difficulties such as addictions, illnesses and negative repetitive patterns in our lives.
When we think psychologically, we normally attribute these problems to negative attitudes or our upbringing.
Entanglements in family dynamics can result in relationship difficulties between partners, between parents and children, and between siblings. They can also contribute to other difficulties such as addictions, illnesses and negative repetitive patterns in our lives.
Twenty five years ago Bert Hellinger developed a method using constellations, to reveal hidden dynamics within the family, which he called “The Orders of Love”. When natural order becomes distorted by external forces such as an early death or exclusion of a family member, the negative entanglements can persist for several generations.
Constellation work is a process by which systemic influences on a person are made visible. In setting up a constellation, a participant selects people to represent his or her family members and moves them around the room until their relative positions reflect the participant’s experience of his or her family. When this movement is done silently and with respect, the representatives report experiences similar to those of the original family members. The dynamics of the family relationship can be observed. The facilitator works in a highly respectful manner to bring to awareness blocks that prevent love from flowing to all members of the system.
Internationally renown and highly experienced Family Constellations facilitators, Peter & Carolyn, will be visiting us to offer this beautiful weekend of powerful transformative work.
Friday 19th May: Introductory Evening
Saturday 20th May: Full Day Family Constellation Immersion
This is a full day workshop where we invite participants to continue the co creation of the sacred healing circle. Today we will use a variety of constellations, small group exercises, visualisations and rituals as means to explore and throw new light on both our resources and difficulties such as self sabotaging behaviours and repeated cyclical patterns.
Sunday 21st May: Half Day; Circles of Connection Constellation Workshop
Today we expand our circle to include all beings. Modelled on the “Council of All Beings” work developed by Joanna Macy and John Seed, we will use Constellation as a tool to explore elements of deep ecology, and continue broadening the soul work into the community and further to include all living entities. There may be opportunity for participants to bring Community, Ethical or Planetary concerns to the circle.
Order and choice of Constellations will emerge on the day. We will honour and include natural elements as a resource for healing.
Through ceremony and ritual constellation work participants will experience themselves as part of ever increasing circles of connection rather than as isolated beings. There will be opportunity to honour ancestry and lineage and so access remembered love for healing and integration. We will be introducing elements of deep ecology work through nature constellation, which supports us to find our place amongst all things and in support of the planet.
