I am excited to introduce you to the rather unknown and unique process of “Family Constellation Work” derived by Bert Hellinger, a native German. I am in the midst of completing my facilitator training at the New England Center of Systemic Constellations. About ten years ago, I learned about this phenomenological approach to looking at family matters and matters of the soul when I lived in Germany. Since then I have been using it for clearing my own family system and bringing order to it. With increased experience and developed intuition I started to work with close friends. Through my training I have deepened my understanding of this work even further, and gaining greater insight and practice. Thus I am delighted to bring this work to you. (04/01)
