Family System Constellations....pages 1 - 6: "For millions of people worldwide, Family Systems Constellation has become a reliable intervention when people are "stuck" or when they have pain in their lives, with anxieties, problems and barriers that seem somehow not to be of their own making. The work is simple, the premise is simple, and the results are simple....Family Systems Constellation provides an opportunity. To identify and release ancestral barriers to happiness, health and well-being is a significant step forward. When conventional methods of counseling have not worked, and when some of the experience of pain is actually based in the difficulties of prior generations, it is a gift to utilize Family Systems Constellation, which has the capacity to identify, address, and alleviate that pain....Through Family Constellations, we are able to watch family entanglements unravel, by observing representatives who stand for members of the family system, with the support of an experienced facilitator....In Family Constellations those who are present in the circle, despite often having no former connection with other participants, are willing to stand as representatives of a family system, which may have suffered loss or conflicted relationships. Facilitator, client, representatives, and all who are present, gain access to a wider field, a larger, deeper way of 'knowing' and healing. The generosity of this work and what strangers are willing to do for each other IS phenomenal.
Ancestral Blueprints, Appendix I, pp. 92 - 97: "The Family Constellation tool is a systemic approach to healing that uncovers and restructures unconscious family blueprints. It is a respectful and powerful way of gently bringing to light the hidden workings of a family system. In doing so it is possible to find ways to resolve entanglements and become free from restrictive family ties...The workshop leader facilitates an unfolding process where painful losses, information treated as family secrets, and previously unseen connections are revealed and honored. Once the unconscious system is revealed, it can be restructured into a more balanced system where love and energy flow freely as experienced by the people representing family members. participants leave with a more nourishing family picture that inspires freedom, clarity and love. The work revels the wisdom and truths of our ancestry that are held in the physical body. Its focus is on solutions - not problems - even when our rational minds may not understand either the problem or the solution."Type your paragraph here.
After the Workshop
Integration happens over time (sometimes months)
Unfinished constellations are healing too. The movement will complete in good time, when you are ready.

Ahead of us on this path of Constellations Facilitation in the Northwest are several whose writings about the work we find especially clear, beautiful and directly informative. Here we include some of our favorite descriptions, explanations and general information about Family and Systemic Constellations, as beautifully written by our Teacher Francesca Mason Boring, and our seasoned and respected Northwest colleagues, Brigitte Stzab and Lisa Iverson.

(his words from Acknowledging What Is (pp 110-111)
"I help each individual to face what fate is presenting, even to look at death. And I help the person bring healing strengths into play ... so that they can make contact with their own strengths. When they leave, they are more peaceful and can live out their fate in harmony, whatever it is ... Yes, reality that is brought to light is helpful. I don't do anything except simply bring things into the open. When someone can recognize and agree to reality, then he or she achieves greatness.

Please refrain from engaging working participants in conversations after their constellation.
Give them time and space to integrate!
