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.”

CONSTELLATION HEALING CIRCLES
Workshop with Jonathan Hooton
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th November 2019

 

the breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
don’t go back to sleep.

you must ask for what you really want.
don’t go back to sleep.

people are going back and forth between the
door sill where the two worlds touch.
the door is round and open.

don’t go back to sleep.

Jallaludin Rumi.

By the age of three many, if not most, in our Western culture have lost touch with the true or authentic Self, soul, the inner guiding presence, inner navigator, the “still voice within,” the inner teacher, to mention the various names given by different traditions to that essential aspect of each one of us. This disconnection is inevitable as we give up access to our Self to adapt to the conditions of growing up in our families, tribe, and culture. Many of the issues people bring to counselling or Family Constellations workshops are symptoms of that disconnection.

Many people cope with that disconnection through addictions, illness, avoiding challenges, identifying with roles, and looking outside themselves for that essence within.

The Constellations process can reveal the many ways that we become disconnected from our essence, our True Self, and can reveal unconscious forces that influence us including unresolved issues in our ancestry, events in the womb and during birth, and unresolved traumas that have been hidden from awareness.

The Workshop will take place in the context of an indigenous healing, or talking, circle which provides a safe, non-judgmental setting for this work. Participants have the opportunity of looking at issues that are troubling in current life. They can also support other participants by representing, standing in for, key persons or elements in their issue in the constellation process. We will also discuss and use other methods of exploring the disconnection from Self.

Disconnection from the Authentic Self arises through:

  • entanglement in unresolved ancestral issues,
  • unresolved traumas in the womb, during birth and infancy,
  • double binds,
  • toxic shame,
  • adapting to family, tribal, and cultural standards, conditioning and domination,
  • enmeshment in parental relationships,
  • unresolved traumas.

This workshop is an opportunity to take part in a group healing process where each person’s issue is a gift to the group. It is an opportunity to take a step on the journey of re-connecting, or coming home, to one’s authentic Self. The workshop can be gateway to entering the soul journey and a next step for those already on it.

Saturday 16th November 2019

This 5-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.
