"Walking, I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me. Be still they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands." ~ Linda Hogan 

Systemic Constellation Work

(Also known as Family Constellations)

"Family dysfunction rolls down from generation to generation like a fire in the woods, taking down everything in its path until one person in one generation has the courage to turn and face the flames. That person brings peace to their ancestors and spares the children that follow."
​~ Terry Real


Bert Hellinger created Systemic Constellation Work. This work gives us the opportunity to see what is out of order in our family system and what is out of our awareness and to uncover our repeating generational patterns. Systemic Constellation Work has emerged from several different therapies, such as psychotherapy, family therapy, group therapy, systems theory, and phenomenology.

We don't look to place blame on anyone in the lineage or situation because each member of the system has carried the burden of the system out of love, loyalty and honour. The whole idea of constellating an issue is to find the healing path and return to wholeness.

Science is exploring through epigenetics how biological issues can be passed down from generation to generation. Here's a little information on genetics and inheritance. Unresolved trauma has an impact on the nervous system of the body; therefore, if we accept the potential of epigenetics, then it follows that there would be an impact on the following generation if the unresolved trauma remains in the bodies of the parents. An interesting read is Bruce Lipton's book The Biology of Belief.

As a facilitator of systemic constellation work, I ask myself, what does this issue (whatever the client brings seeking resolution to) do for this system? The key is to include everything that shows up, to be free from judgment and to seek a healing path.

Systemic constellation work is an effective tool for resolving interpersonal problems in families, organisations, or any system. It has been used in many settings, such as education, health care, social services, and prisons. It may also reveal a new perspective on issues related to inheritance, war, crimes, and race. Systemic constellation work is perfect for those who desire the experience of living and operating from a place of full potential and belonging.

​This work allows you to use exactly what is challenging you as an instrument for insight, understanding, and resolution. The application of this work is only limited by your imagination and curiosity.

"What you deny and ignore in your history, you do at the expense of your destiny and Inner Peace." ~ Linda Conyard

Resources

I imagine that Constellation Work is new to most people. I apologise right here because I suspect that once you experience it, you will more than likely become addicted to it! It is one of those experiences where words don't do justice to it.

The work involves the Soul's movement, and the Soul's language is very different from our words. Some wonderful Constellators have put words around the experience of Systemic Constellations, but for me, the best way to comprehend is to experience.

Here are a few of the amazing constellation facilitators I have had the pleasure of learning from and/or working with:
Francesca Mason-Boring (USA)
Jan Jacob (Netherlands)
Stephan Hausner (Germany)
Judith Hemming (UK)
Anngwyn St Just (USA)
Margarete Koenning (Australia)
Maria Dolenc (Australia)

The gathering of International and Australian Constellators happens in Sydney regularly. Further information is available on Australasian Constellation Intensive.
