"One of the best transformative relational workshops I have ever experienced is Family Constellations with Nick Werber" - Pamela M.

Are you someone who senses that your connection to your family of origin or the experiences you went through in childhood are affecting close relationships, your career, or your mental or physical wellbeing? Do you feel you carry a pit of shame or unworthiness that makes it hard to fit in or assert yourself with others? Were there secrets or infidelity in your family and do these dynamics continue to appear in your life today? Or, does it feel like you’re carrying around an inner-child that is easily triggered in relationships and never feels truly safe?

These are just a few signs that issues that began in your family of origin are playing out in your life today.

Healing With Family Constellations

Much like world history, when you don't fully grasp the significance of your own personal history, you're more likely to repeat it

Using Family Constellations, a wholly unique and remarkable healing modality, this retreat will help you uncover and process how seemingly personal struggles are often not so simple. Instead, challenges like anxiety, depression, trauma, illness and others can be perpetuated by events that occurred in not only your upbringing, but in your parents' upbringing, your grandparents' upbringing, or other areas of your family tree.

Family Constellations offers a new way to transmute the many ways family history can perpetuate feelings of unworthiness, anger, shame, relationship issues, and even various issues with money.

Simply put, this work goes deep. And although we won’t waste time getting to the core of what you want to work on, the group process comes with plenty of laughter and fun along the way. Expect to make new friends.

A longer explanation of Family Constellations can be read here. And for those who want to dive deeper, Psychology Networker has a great article that speaks to the approach and it’s history.

What Are Family Constellations Exactly?

Family Constellations are an eyes-open, experiential approach, in which fellow participants will be asked to stand and represent relevant aspects of your life. Depending on the issue you’re experiencing, representatives may be chosen for specific family members, your partner, a boss, an ex, or other people that relate to your intention. As these individuals stand in representation, they will be gently guided to tap into an awareness that allows them to become a mirror that reflects back the dynamics you’re exploring.

At first, the accuracy of these maps or constellations may be surprising. But as we progress through the weekend, we’ll go beyond creating visual representations of your experience and move towards how you can free yourself from the barriers that are preventing you from connecting with your goals.
