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.”

FACILITOR TRAINING
for
ONLINE ONE-ON-ONE and GROUP SESSIONS
1-DAY TRAINING with Jonathan Hooton
ONLINE on ZOOM
Saturday 1st May 2021

 

This 1-day training is for facilitators and students of Family and Systemic Constellations who want to learn more about facilitating constellations with individual clients and with groups on Zoom.

While working on line does not have the same sense as working in person, with less embodied states and gestures observable, it is a very powerful way of working. Various ways of working with different forms of symbols will be demonstrated and participants will have an opportunity to facilitate. I will demonstrate the use of table top constellations with dolls or objects on hand, a drawing program, guitar pick constellations, felt-sense representing, and “in the mind’s eye” or in the imagination.

I will also include some helpful ways of working on Zoom including the shared screen and some advanced options, the white board, and other technical issues related to working on this platform.

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.

When:
Saturday 1st May 2021
9:30 am to 5:00 pm

THE TRAINING

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.

Personal Work will include “in depth student healing” of unresolved personal traumas including shame and inhibited grief, shadow work, systemic entanglements, and softening insecure attachment styles.

The Facilitator’s Stance will be enhanced through creating safety, presence, energetic boundaries, pacing, titrating, resourcing, invitational language, gentleness, and nonjudgment.

Facilitation Practice will focus on building skills and confidence, including ‘not-knowing’ and ‘not-doing,’ having multiple awareness, exploring helping pitfalls and mentoring client sessions.

The training will revisit and expand on an experiential understanding of the Foundational Principles of Bert Hellinger’s Orders of Love, Orders of Helping and Levels of Conscience.

We will deepen Knowledge of unresolved trauma including survival physiology and developmental trauma, attachment styles, and family dynamics including abortions, miscarriages, parentification, incest, second relationships, blended families and adoptions.
