Family Constellations Workshop on Zoom

May 16, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm PDT


“We might think of ourselves as each like a created geography, a confluence of inherited flows. Each one of us has a unique signature, inherited from our ancestors, our landscape, our language, and beneath it a half-hidden geology of existence: memories, hurts, triumphs, and stories in our lineage that have not yet been fully told…” – David Whyte

Family Constellation work draws from the understanding that there is a family energy field established over generations that we are unconsciously driven by in our present lives. It is an extraordinary method that brings to light, and then heals, our inheritance of pain, trauma, recurring family issues, relationship patterns and entanglements. Once these transgenerational challenges are given voice to, and find their rightful place of belonging in the recent or distant past, the family and individual are free to live more fully in the present, with love flowing freely again.

To create a Constellation online, I will guide the client/seeker to set up the constellation on a table or floor where we can all view it, using objects to represent persons, places, things, feelings, and whatever else might show up. People in the group will volunteer to be representatives. Some may enter the constellation later as more representatives are needed, while others will share their insights as witnesses. Whatever role you play, the impact is palpable as the constellation moves, eventually, towards completion.

We will get through one, and possibly two, constellations in our time together. This means we will not work directly with everyone’s situation. However, in Constellation work, the remarkable thing is that when you step into someone else’s Constellation as a representative, you often find that you get insight into your own situation, and experience your own healing as a result.

I will hear briefly from those of you coming with a situation or concern, and make a decision about which Constellation/s to explore based on what might work best for the group at the time.

Family Constellation work helps heal not only the individual who is offering up their situation, but also the community that is present to help. This work is a joyful and enriching adventure under Barbara’s superb facilitation, as she provides guidance, insight, depth, healthy boundaries, and a welcoming environment. – Natalia Menendez, Community College Educator
