A Family/Systemic Constellation Workshop

with Lucian Schloss, MA, LMHC, LPC

Our issues are often multi-layered and multi-dimensional. We now know from the study of epigenetics, that the experiences both positive and traumatic of our ancestors, impact our physical and mental well-being. On an unconscious level, we are impacted by things outside of our normal biographical narrative that we find emphasized in psychotherapy and pop psychology. The bonds of life are strong and run far back in time. As small children, we sense this great love and debt to the source of our life. Out of this blind love, we can become entagled in issues that don't belong to us, but to those who came before. Through the practice of Family and Systemic Constellations we are able to find clarity, revelation, and freedom from these unconscious entanglements. By widening our view to the origin of the issue, we can also find a resolution by including all those involved.

Through the process of this deep work, the soul finds movement out of the places it gets stuck. We can move beyond the normal narratives we create about the different circumstances of our lives and actually "see" the fullness of the issue. These linear/ cause-and-effect stories can trap the soul when they are too narrow to encompass the larger truths of the systems we are embedded in. Even when we feel stuck, seeing the reality of what actually "is" often allows for a natural movement towards coherence and harmony within the individual and family soul.

The People & The Process

Constellations are led by trained facilitators in group and individual settings. People or objects are used to “represent” the relevant elements in the client’s system, such as father, mother, boss, coworker, etc. The client chooses representatives and places them based on a felt sense of where they are in relationship to each other. The facilitator then asks the representatives to report on their experience in terms of body sensations, reoccurring thoughts, and emotions. If objects are used, the facilitator may feel each object to sense these qualities. Through this process, the disruptions or dis-ease in the system come to light along with new opportunities for healing. The facilitator gently guides the movements of the representatives and suggests healing statements to help shift the system into a more harmonious alignment.

Constellations take anywhere from 10 minutes to 2 hours. The client, as a witness to the constellation, is able to see their internalized experience externalized. This alone often yields new awareness that is not possible through conscious thought. Constellations often open up movement in places that have been stuck, such as letting go of an old family pattern, revealing the true motivations of an action, or releasing energy around a chronic issue. The healing that emerges may ripple out over days and weeks as the changes in the constellation integrate into the client’s life and system.

Being a representative in a constellation has its own benefits. Once a representative has been placed in a constellation, their task is to simply pay attention to their body’s sensations. The process unfolds quite naturally, and there is no role playing involved. Representing connects people with subtle soulful energies which help to expand their experience of humanity and give them a unique sense of connection as they participate in another’s healing process. It is an amazing, insightful experience.

Family and Systemic Constellations can be used for guidance and healing regarding: the inner dynamics of your psyche, romantic relationships, inherited family trauma, questions of vocation, financial issues, organizational dysfunctions, the natural world, and collective issues. Systemic Constellations make that which can't be seen visible and what has been forgotten is remembered.
