CONSTELLATION FOUNDATIONS LEARNING GROUP

What is Family Constellation Work?
Historical Foundations

rope with flower represents the love that is discovered in this family constellation foundations training online.The Foundations Learning group is a wise and caring circle and an immersion into family constellation work that will change your life perspective. You will journey into your mother’s and your father’s lineages, and come into an understanding of the gifts and burdens you are carrying from each. No matter what you find in your lineage, when you truly see and feel what your ancestors experienced, you can stand firmly and with pride on their shoulders. Embodying your family lineage with all its gifts, strength, wounds, and unfinished dreams, you will find that you are becoming whole and strong in Self.

We will dive deeply into themes that we find in most family systems:

Examples include addictions, victim/perpetrator dynamics, and unusual fates like adoption or immigration.

Constellation Work takes courage, and it can be very rewarding.

So often, in the depth of these currents we discover tremendous resilience, love and loyalty.

A PARTICIPANT'S REFLECTION:

key in lock, representing boston area family constellation training for 2019-2020.My experience in the Learning Group was life changing. I was amazed and grateful for the empathy and skill of the facilitators, who were clearly drawing on much experience and deep intuitive wisdom.

I appreciated each session’s alternation between full constellations and shorter exercises done in smaller groups. Every single exercise yielded important insights into myself and my personal history, as well as greater understanding of human experience in general, and of this thing called the Field.

I have sometimes described my experiences with Constellation Work as “incredibly entertaining.” This is not to cheapen the work, but to describe how completely it captures my attention and meets different needs, all at the same time. I have a background in theater and experimental performance, and a love of improvising. I also have a longstanding involvement with energy work and a drive to understand more about how the world works. As a Representative in Family or Systemic Constellations, one is “improvising,” or letting actions and words emerge from one’s own feelings. At the same time, one is aware that these feelings arise through ‘tuning in’ to the field. The words and actions that come forth in a Constellation often have a profound healing and lasting effect.

The move to online constellations, while initially a dismaying prospect, ultimately reinforced the emphasis on sensing through non-physical means. It swiftly became clear that being together in person was not necessary for the energy to be shared and experienced.

I have gained insights into the workings of my own personality and family dynamics I knew nothing about. I have acquired greater understanding of and empathy for other human beings. Cultivating empathy strikes me as something that our planet cannot help but benefit from, to counterbalance the tendency towards judgment and intolerance that currently ravage human society.

I greatly appreciate the Learning Group’s emphasis on holding constellations “blind.” That is, without immediately revealing who is representing what. This allows one to tune into one’s feelings without bringing in the element of thought—how one thinks one should behave. It eliminates doubt as to whether one is acting according to intuitive sense or intellectual expectations.

In conclusion, I have to say that embarking upon the Learning Group journey has been a highly fascinating, productive experience. I know that my journey with Constellation Work has only just begun, and I can’t wait to continue the exploration.
