FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS
Experiential Workshops
Releasing Personal and Ancestral Burdens

“An old Chinese proverb tells us, to forget one’s ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root.”
Janet Easter, Jung and the Ancestors, 2016

“For no one can see very far ahead who is not anchored in the deep past.”
Michael Meade, Fate and Destiny, 2010

We live in a web of interrelated forces, many of which influence us on an unconscious level. When there is an interruption or break in a strand in that web, we will feel a disharmony without knowing the source of that interruption to our well-being. Two sources of unconscious interruptions in our lives are unresolved issues, or entanglements, in our family systems and personal unresolved traumas, including inhibited grief and toxic shame, which may also be transmitted intergenerationally.

Interruptions to life energy and love can be the unresolved issues of our ancestors, our parents, and unresolved personal traumas, including medical procedures, violence, neglect, that range from experiences in the womb, birth, early childhood and throughout life. Interruptions can manifest as relationship difficulties, addictions, depression, anxiety, illness, repeating patterns and financial concerns.

The Family Constellations process can be very helpful in revealing underlying and unconscious dynamics that are not accessible by other methods. It is a way of looking “outside the box.” The insights that often arise in this process can help resolve relationship issues, lead to new understandings, help unlock repetitive patterns, release a feeling of being stuck in life, empower participants to face the challenges that inevitably come in life, and assist in healing processes and personal growth. Another benefit is to lift the burden on our children who are the first to carry the pain of unresolved family issues. Taking part in the process can also bring compassion for, and understanding of, the situations of other people – an opportunity to “walk a mile in another person’s shoes.”

FACILITATOR TRAINING FOR ONE-ON-ONE SESSIONS IN FAMILY AND SYSTEMIC CONSTELLATIONS
with Jonathan Hooton
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th February 2019

The Training
This 2-day training is for those participants who have taken one or more 1-year (16-20 days) Family and Systemic Constellations training and want to use this system with individual clients in their offices.

Working with clients in the office is different from working with representatives in a group process as the information from the living representatives is absent. However symbols in the form of figurines, foot prints or mats, mugs or cups, or any available object can be used to represent the relationships between people or significant issues and reveal information from the field. We will also look at facilitating constellations in “the mind’s eye,” in the imagination.

The training will revisit the foundational principles of Bert Hellinger’s Orders of Love, Orders of Helping and Levels of Conscience, and family and relational dynamics.

Particular attention will be paid to creating a safe space from the student’s and client’s perspective, encouraging an inner groundedness, presence and gentleness in the student facilitator, recognizing unresolved trauma in oneself and in others to avoid retraumatizing, and attending to and healing one’s own unresolved issues.

Requirements:
Participants must have completed a full year (16 to 20 day) facilitator training.

When:
Friday 9th and Saturday 10th February 2019

Times:
9.00 am to 5:00 pm

Where:
Inglewood, Calgary,
Alberta, Canada

How much:
Fee: $350 including GST
Deposit: $100 to hold your place
Refund (less $50) available until 9th January
(payment by cash, cheque or eTransfer)
