"Originally developed by Bert Hellinger, over 30 years ago in Germany, Systemic Constellations is a trans-generational, existential-phenomenological (Brentano, Husserl, Heidegger) method with applications in therapy, coaching, health and business.
A brief and solution focused therapeutic intervention it has roots in family systems therapy, (Moreno, Satir, Böszörményi-Nagy) incorporating the Ancestor reverence of the South African Zulus (Hellinger spent 15 years living and working there as a catholic priest), which has been further developed by many of the first generation systemic trainers.
This method reveals deeper, subconscious patterns that can have a limiting or even destructive impact on relationships, health and success.
Constellation work can address these limiting patterns even when their roots go back several generations. The approach aims to help participants understand the hidden systemic orders operating in relationship systems and organizations and the powerful resolutions to conflict that this understanding can make possible.
The Systemic Constellation process is being integrated by practitioners worldwide. It offers hope and inner peace to those on their own personal journey seeking to resolve inter-generational trauma to better serve future generations." - Constellation Intensive
