The Wisdom of Relational Constellations

With Relational Constellations we can uncover the disruptions and entanglements so that we, as well as our family members, can find strength, dignity, love and a sense of belonging. The activation of love is the guiding principle used for finding a resolution. Profound healing of emotional problems, family conflicts, and physical illnesses often result. When we bring love and respect to our family and our lineage then love can become a healing agent in all aspects of our life. Profound healing of heart, body, and soul often results.

Medicine for the Soul

Love and a sense of belonging are the cornerstones to fulfilling relationships throughout life. Disturbances in these patterns of love and attachment can create havoc in families, often for generations.

When the flow of love and acceptance is interrupted in life, the soul suffers.

To the degree that the flow of love and acceptance is interrupted in the family, is the degree to which that family soul suffers.  

Particular areas frequently addressed effectively with constellations include:
  • Issues still active from previous generations
  • Divorce
  • Trauma
  • Adoptions Miscarriages and abortions
  • The exclusion of family members
  • Conflict between family members
  • Interpersonal or systemic family issues
  • Early death, loss, and family secrets
  • Personal issues, e.g., depression, anxiety, etc.
  • Survivors of war experience and their families  This approach aims to resolve interpersonal or systemic (family and ancestral) issues like entangled love.
We also explore personal issues related to physical illness, split off parts of the self, character,  trauma and healing traumatized bodies with the embodying process based on our long term experience in somatic psychology.

Management issues, team/group process and organizational issues can also be given attention.

From our many years of deep inner wok we also include the importance of a spiritual perspective.

A relational constellation is a deeply educational process.
