About The Event
Our training will begin on January 6th, 2024 - we meet once a month. Our time together will be divided into theory and practicum modules:
- The practicum section is group constellations.
- Each member of our community will have constellations done during our training.
- All other members of the class will act as representatives.
- Remember, even if you are not having a constellation done, and you are a representative in someone else's constellation, there is always a part of your own story that plays out, bringing catharsis and healing for you.
- Family Constellation training is planned over two years to cover all modules and submodules below (adjustments will be made as needed; this is an outline).
Intention for this Community
It is our human need to belong and have a connection with each other. In this deep work, I intend to create a community of people who can support each other as we dive deep into our psyche. In my experience, we begin to see each other deeply and learn to hold each other without judgment of who we are and where we came from since no one family is without its story.
As your Facilitator and guide, I intend to create a safe container for you to share your story and experience the stories of others in our community with compassion and kindness.
“Whoever desires to solve the mystery of Love’s Hidden Symmetry enters a complex labyrinth ..confronting the deceptions and illusions that weave themselves around us, dulling our senses and paralyzing our understanding as we try and unravel the secrets of the good beyond guilt and innocence. Nevertheless, many have the courage to enter the labyrinth, to peer into darkness, and break the spell of false beliefs.” - Bert Hellinger

"Life is an endless current and each person is grounded in the current to which he or she belongs. They cannot disengage, not from their ancestors, not from those who gave them birth, and not even from their descendants who will take care of their continuity. This 'ancestry of belonging' is not just a name in the family tree. The meaning of it is: feeling in your body the presence of your parents and your grandparents, and feeling that your own body lives on in your children's body". Prof. Yolanda Genpel, Psychoanalyst.
My Background & Certification:
I was born and grew up in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. I observed how the Zulu people looked to their ancestry for guidance. This is part of what Bert Hellinger observed when he came to KwaZulu Natal as a missionary, he observed this within the Zulu culture and when he returned to Germany he combined this with other therapies to create Family Constellations. I certified with Yishai Gaster's school "International School for the Study in Systemic Constellations". I am certified in both Family and Organizational Constellations as a Facilitator and Teacher. We have continued to meet on Zoom as a group of therapists from around the world monthly to do our constellation work for over 6 years now.
Yishai trained directly with Bert Hellinger. Yishai’s style of working includes felts of color which is less confusing than many other styles (that don't use felts) and this is the style I incorporate in my work. I like the organic way it opens to the Field of Consciousness. I have worked with many Family Constellation Facilitators in South Africa and the Bay Area.
I incorporate Color Therapy, which I have been teaching and facilitating for over 25 years, along with the Enneagram. Working with felts of color makes things clearer. I believe that Color Therapy tells yet another layer to the constellation story. I am probably one of the few therapists who add Color Therapy as an extra dimension to the Family Constellation work.
The addition of the Enneagram came when I trained with Yishai and met the authors and teachers of the Enneagram. I learned this system along with Family Constellations and understood how enneatype structures show up in Family Constellations work, so I include this too when I offer my style of Family Constellations.
“If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people.” ― Thich Nhat Han
