A Systemic Constellation is a three-dimensional group process that has the power to shift generations of suffering and unhappiness. Bert Hellinger, the founder of this work, who studied and treated families for more than 50 years, observed that many of us unconsciously "take on" destructive familial patterns of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, aloneness, alcoholism and even illness as a way of "belonging" in our families. Bonded by a deep love, a child will often sacrifice his own best interests in a vain attempt to ease the suffering of a parent or other family member.
Systemic Constellations allow us to break these patterns so that we can live healthier, happier, more fulfilled lives. In a moment of insight, a new life course can be set in motion. The results can be life-changing.

The workshop provides a space for all participants to work. There will up to 12 constellating participants who will all have an opportunity for their own issue to be constellated at the weekend. All participants will have opportunities to serve as representatives in the constellations of others. Being a representative or even part of the witnessing circle often touches us in a deep and healing way. No previous experience of this way of working is needed.
