I open myself to a situation in darkness, not knowing what is going on. ... when I find a place of light, I try to describe what is illuminating me...when the right word is found, those for whom it came, grasp it at a level beyond rational thought. The right word touches and moves them even when they don't understand how. - Bert Hellinger

What is a Constellation?


Everything I thought I understood about love, death, families, tragedies, illness, war and loss expanded in ways I could never have imagined. I saw people who were struggling with depression, with money, with illness, with relationship issues, transformed on a huge scale. I saw how tragedies and loss from the past were still affecting the lives of family members several generations later-even if they had no conscious knowledge of the original events. I heard stories of how after a constellation, family members half way around the world -who had no idea a constellation had been done - were suddenly transformed. I felt changes happening in me just from witnessing other people's constellations. It became obvious that we are all way more connected than we have any way of knowing.

This simple and complex experience will change the way you experience change. You will not be the same; your sense of who you are in this world and our universe or space and time-especially time-will change, usefully, wonderfully, and irrevocably for you. Dare you to come play!

Family constellations was started by Virginia Satir and further developed by Bert Hellinger, a German Psychotherapist. This version we will be using was adapted by Michelle Masters and Carl Buccheit from our sister company NLP Marin.

... all people carry with them an energetic field or blueprint of their biological families - this field has been called the family soul or family conscious. That field has an enormous unconscious effect on each family member's life and all the people they interact with. Long standing problems with health, depression, relationships, failed finances, etc. are usually a result of unconscious entanglements in the family soul. Doing a constellation is a way to bring those entanglements to light, and allow for some resolution to happen. Quite often after a constellation, other members of the family who were not present for the constellation - didn't even know it was happening – report dramatic shifts as a result. Because the family is a system --- like an energetic mobile, what affects one, affects all. And what keeps one stuck, affects them all.

- Bert Hellinger

Leopold Zundi, a biologist discovered that a species pass information genetically through latent genes about how that species has learned to adapt to its environment for survival purposes. Latent genes work so that a species can pass adaptive strategies for survival on to the next generation. This explains why you might find families of with 4 generations of lawyers or 3 generations of doctors.

When this information works negatively in our lives we call it an entanglements. These problems last for about 7 generations or for about 25-30 people unless it is something like murder, which can have an effect for a longer time.

For example the original incident could be something like:grandpa lost money in the depression and it leaves an imprint in the family subconscious. This has the effect on dad and you.

Types of entanglements show up as thing like the following in business and in life:

Jewish, African, Irish, native, American and Chinese people are the Big 5 for lots of problems due to the exceptionally traumatic calamities which have surrounded their ethnic histories.

When to have a constellation? When there are problems like repeat finance, career problems, chronic health issues, relationship problems/patterns to deal with ecology so that you can have more of what you want, when there is metal or physical illness like terminal disease, frequent accidents, suicidal tendencies, depression, problems sleeping, etc. in your family.
