FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS
Experiential Workshops
Releasing Personal and Ancestral Burdens

“An old Chinese proverb tells us, to forget one’s ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root.”
Janet Easter, Jung and the Ancestors, 2016

“For no one can see very far ahead who is not anchored in the deep past.”
Michael Meade, Fate and Destiny, 2010

We live in a web of interrelated forces, many of which influence us on an unconscious level. When there is an interruption or break in a strand in that web, we will feel a disharmony without knowing the source of that interruption to our well-being. Two sources of unconscious interruptions in our lives are unresolved issues, or entanglements, in our family systems and personal unresolved traumas, including inhibited grief and toxic shame, which may also be transmitted intergenerationally.

Interruptions to life energy and love can be the unresolved issues of our ancestors, our parents, and unresolved personal traumas, including medical procedures, violence, neglect, that range from experiences in the womb, birth, early childhood and throughout life. Interruptions can manifest as relationship difficulties, addictions, depression, anxiety, illness, repeating patterns and financial concerns.

The Family Constellations process can be very helpful in revealing underlying and unconscious dynamics that are not accessible by other methods. It is a way of looking “outside the box.” The insights that often arise in this process can help resolve relationship issues, lead to new understandings, help unlock repetitive patterns, release a feeling of being stuck in life, empower participants to face the challenges that inevitably come in life, and assist in healing processes and personal growth. Another benefit is to lift the burden on our children who are the first to carry the pain of unresolved family issues. Taking part in the process can also bring compassion for, and understanding of, the situations of other people – an opportunity to “walk a mile in another person’s shoes.”

ADVANCED FACILITATOR TRAINING
IN
FAMILY AND SYSTEMIC CONSTELLATIONS

UNCOVERING THE AUTHENTIC SELF

with Jonathan Hooton
EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada
Monday 16th through Friday 20th October 2023

THE TRAINING

This 5-day training is for those participants who have taken one or more 1-year (16-20 days) Family and Systemic Constellations training and want to use this system with individual clients in their offices.

The practices in this training will focus on some of the dynamics that lead to a loss of self, a loss of self-agency, that happen to all childen.  These events include entanglement with unresolved issues in the family system, unresolved trauma, toxic shame, and parentification    

Unrsolved trauma will be addressed through creating safety, presence, energetic boundaries, pacing, titrating, resourcing, invitational language, gentleness, and nonjudgment.  

Toxic Shame is a debilitating sate that is a fundamental and often unconscious dynamic operating in most human relationships.  Healing movements will be explored. 

Parentification includes looking at the healing of ‘role reversal’ where a child takes on the task of being a companion to, or parent of, a parent, or is involved in the relationship of his or her parents.   

Entanglement refers to the unconscious taking on of an unresolved family issue or issues by a descendant.  Healing of these entanglements is foundational in family constellation.
