Since the beginning of our family constellation VIRTUAL journey, we’ve conducted numerous family constellation workshops, catering to groups eager to explore their family entanglements. In this blog post, however, we aim to pause and reflect, redirecting our focus to the fundamental question: ‘What truly defines a family constellation workshop?’
While some of you may already be well-versed regarding what a family constellation workshop is (in-person and virtually), some are completely unaware of the benefits they can reap from participating in a family constellation workshop. This post aims to help those unfamiliar with family constellation workshops by explaining their main ideas and importance, making it easier for those thinking about joining.
Understanding Family Constellation Workshops
In our family constellation workshops, individuals gather and explore their family dynamics under the guidance of the facilitator, but the real power player is the morphogenetic field. The facilitator helps everyone connect to this field, and it acts like a spotlight on intergenerational trauma. Whatever dynamic needs attention will come up and be released. So, think of the facilitator as more of a helper, who makes sure everyone stays connected with the field and applies the Orders of Love as developed by Bert Hellinger.
By going with the morphogenetic field, each step will be revealed one at a time to achieve healing. As such, at any different point of the workshop, you will be engaged in the constellation either as a constellator, a representative, or an observer.
In the workshop, the morphogenetic field chooses who is going to have a constellation through the facilitator. When this occurs, the morphogenetic field will help your family members, whether from the present or past up to seven generations, to reveal any unbalances that cause suffering. These unresolved matters may be contributing to inexplicable challenges in your current life. Our workshops have successfully addressed multiple issues, including but not limited to illnesses and diseases, spousal relationships, infertility, sibling dynamics, body odors, insomnia, nightmares, and various others.
At the beginning of the workshop, the facilitator asks the constellator (client) to choose representatives for certain family members. They will naturally connect to the morphogenetic field of the constellator family system and take over emotions, gestures, and movements from the represented family member. Importantly, representatives are not provided with scripts or predetermined dialogue. Instead, the morphogenetic field guides the session, allowing representatives to authentically experience and convey the emotions and concerns of each family member involved in the family constellation.
When one is not engaged in constellating or representing, their role is to observe. Observers must ensure that they stay connected and focused during the workshop, as they play a crucial role in holding the connection with the morphogenetic field with the other participants, contributing to its strength. If the focus is lost, the strength of the morphogenetic field begins to diminish. Remaining focused during the session is not only beneficial to the workshop but also to the observers themselves. By resonating with the family dynamics of others, observers can undergo their own healing, especially if they experience similar dynamics.
Benefits of the workshop
Whether you’re a constellator, representative, or observer, at any point in the workshop, you’ll sense the healing process unfolding. You’ll navigate emotional release and discover previously unnoticed connections within your family system. Similar to peeling layers of an onion, the family constellation workshop gradually relieves us of all sorts of encumbrances. True happiness arises when we shed those layers completely. Although the workshop’s effects typically manifest up to six months afterward, you’ll already feel calmer, recognising that you’ve taken a step toward soul healing.
