Often some of the biggest challenges we face in our lives are systemic in nature. In our family, we may see similar patterns of loss, illness, or misfortune repeated through the generations. Perhaps we suffer depression and we notice that our mother and our grandmother – or an aunt – also suffered in this way. At work and in volunteer organizations, we may see similar patterns of mismanagement and waste repeated through changing administrations. The same problems show up time after time. A relatively new approach, Systems Constellations, is a rapidly evolving practice of working with energetic fields to find solutions to systemic problems. In family constellations, it is a way of honoring ancestors, acknowledging our love for them, and releasing burdens that we may carry for them.
This workshop will include a brief introduction to Systems Constellation and some exercises to familiarize everyone with the work. Participants in Systems Constellations work with energetic fields – for example, the field of the family soul, or the energetic field of the workplace or nonprofit organization. All attendees actively participate in holding the sacred space of the circle. Some will be asked to stand as representatives in the field, and a few will have the opportunity to ask the group to address an issue in constellation, on their behalf. Whatever the role a member of the circle takes, there are opportunities to become aware of personal and systemic dynamics that have been hidden, and for significant healing. When we open sacred space with the intention of healing, and open our awareness to engagement with the energetic fields that intimately and profoundly influence our lives, we access many possibilities.
No experience is required. If you would like to have the group engage in a constellation for you, you might prepare by answering questions asked on this document:
