Systemic Constellation Weekday Workshop
What you don't know could be limiting you now....
You may or may not have a “problem”. Or you may want to improve some areas in your life and/or the society you are a part of.
This workshop series is for:
anyone who would like to address deeper causes of their “problems” in their personal life, their organisation or in any system they are a part of
anyone interested in developing their “systemic perception” so that they can outgrow limiting pattern
anyone interested in looking into and heal deeper root causes of recurring health issues
anyone interested in being “in the flow of life” better – enjoy better health, abundance, relationships, and positive state etc
entrepreneurs or anyone in leadership position
You can choose to join one day or more. Each day is independent.
Each day will start with group exercises, followed by Systemic Constellations.
The word “constellation” has nothing to do with “astrology” – it simply refers to the process of making what is hidden visible in 3-dimensional space, with the use of human representatives or objects representing people, elements and concepts in the system that is being looked at from the systemic lens.
Biologist Dr Rupert Sheldrake’s ground-breaking work on “morphic field” (a kind of collective memory and information field shared by the same species) explains the probable workings of the phenomena observed in Systemic Constellation work.
Dr Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD, believes 50% of root cause of illnesses can be addressed with this method.
While you don’t have to start benefitting from systemic work by looking at the family system, it’s useful to be aware that all of us come from our parents and the family system is the first we belong to. (And we are born in systems including our whole ancestral line, our culture, country etc) Just like the fish swimming in the water is not aware of the water until it is out of it, we may very well not be aware of the effect of the systems we are a part of on us.
The sum of the parts is not the same as the whole. Just as a cell in your body carries the hologram of the whole, all parts of the same system carry the system we are a part of us with or without being aware of it.
(If you already know how Systemic Constellation works and what problems they can solve, you may skip the next part and scroll down to read “What our Participants say”)
You do not always need to have a “problem” to benefit. But Systemic Constellation can help uncover root causes of unexplained/recurring challenges that have not been helped with obvious means, including but not limited to:
- Physical health challenges
- Mood disorders
- Relationship challenges
- Lack of motivation and self sabotage
- Challenges in business and/or teams
- Financial difficulties
- Ending generational destructive patterns
- Exploring business potentials
- Societal issues
The origin of this work is family therapy.
Systemic (Family) Constellation was first developed by the German psychotherapist, Bert Hellinger in the late 1980s and has continued to evolve and has been used successfully to resolve deep issues not resolved through conventional reductionistic psychotherapy.
Bert Hellinger calls the attitude in practising true Systemic & Family Constellation “an attitude to life” and he believes if everyone in the world did just one Constellation, there would be world peace. In fact he was nominated for Nobel Prize for Peace.
The principles in Systemic (Family) Constellation have nothing to do with morals, but they have emerged from what has shown up again and again in many constellation processes facilitated.
For example, exclusion of family members in the family (e.g.“black sheep” in the family, divorce, given away for adoption, unacknowledged abortion, miscarriages, suicides, etc) may cause an imbalance and a misplaced identification by someone in the family system whether they have met or not, and sometimes generations later. We call the phenomenon entanglement.
Another cause of entanglement* on the intuitive and transgenerational level can be that of victim and perpetrator – on the personal even national level. The observations from thousands of constellations seem to confirm the laws of “karma” as well, without the determinism.
(We do not use the word “entanglement” in a way that implies it’s a “mistake”. It is neutral. Another name is “hidden patterns” – and they exist to continue the system, holding the parts on it together. The conflicts between the needs of different levels of conscience create these “patterns”.)
Renowned Cambridge educated Biologist Dr Rupert Sheldrake’s morphic field theory that explains the flock behaviours such as that of fish and birds and across animals can explain how family constellation works. This is a short explanation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JydjryhEl5o
Dr Rupert Sheldrake’s extensive work postulates how information and experience appear to be transferable outside of time and space. In Systemic (Family) Constellation, the shared memory of systems is also referred to as the “Knowing Field”. In this quantum space, layers and layers of information exist and whether we are aware or not, a part of us exists in this space and interacts with it all the time.
German origin Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt M.D., PhD, who is renowned for treating difficult health cases (patients who “have tried everything”) places Family Constellation accounting of 50% the root cause. (The 5 levels of Healing approach he practises underlies Eastern medicine such as Tibetan, Chinese, Ayurvedic medicine and yogic tradition of healing which are all SYSTEMIC.) This recording explains how he would for example treat autistic children not just addressing heavy metal and EMF stresses but also by Family Constellation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2EB4m9-DCw)
Our 6-dimensional body approach is similar to Dr Klingdhart’s approach.
Just as physical symptoms in our body call our attention to look at the root causes and to restore balance, challenges in our family/organisation/society system can call our attention to look at what might be out of balance until balance is restored.
This is why people who go through the Systemic (Family) Constellation with openness can experience profound shifts in many areas in their lives that they may not even have expected. Unexplained blockages dissolve, destructive behaviours such as addiction, suicidal thoughts, etc change; more clarity emerges, as one dissolve the deeper causes for their challenges.
Some concrete examples include long lost family member reached out to connect “from nowhere”, long time stuck situations in business resolved naturally, serious illness healed against all odds…
Those who have experienced Systemic (Family) Constellation often find the experiential process fascinating, profound or profoundly touching, and the insights they gain from the experience surprisingly and spot on.
Systemic (Family) Constellation is an experiential and somatic process.
For group workshop. it takes place in a group with about 10 (or can be more) participants sitting in a circle. The process begins where the client, after presenting their issue, invite the participants to represent members of his/her family or system (and they can accept or decline). The client then places intuitively each chosen person inside the circle. After everyone is placed, the client takes a seat and observes. The representatives begin to feel like the people or elements they are representing and providing information that otherwise is inaccessible. The facilitator may also invite representatives and decide together with the client what elements to be represented.
The facilitator would guide the client to witness what emerges. Specific resolution sentences may be used. Words are sometimes optional. The connection and shift takes place from seeing.
An effective Constellation facilitator is compassionate, intuitive and neutral. Their role is to “hold space” for what shows up and guides the client to acknowledge what is asking to be acknowledged from the bigger system. Constellation work is positively life-changing when facilitated with neutrality and humility.
For everyone who participates, they exercise their subtle intuitive senses. Being a representative is a somatic experience. You learn to go inward, sense and feel what comes through. This is what we do everyday anyway, but in the workshop, this is done consciously.
Representatives are chosen intuitively for having similar “resonance” with what they represent and the facilitated processes often touch them on a deeper level as well, giving them relevant and powerful insights.
Systemic (Family) Constellation can also be performed in private one-on-one session, or be incorporated in coaching and healing (which we also offer).
Anyone who has been a Systemic (Family) Constellation representative will tell you that as they step into their place in the Constellation and just trust “the field”, they start to sense movement and urges that are not their own, while they are fully conscious. Whatever that asks for completion and resolution is information in “the field”.
To be able to tap into the morphogenic field or the Knowing Field is our innate ability, it’s similar to the ability to sense someone is staring at us from our back, or the telepathic experience of thinking about calling someone and they call. Pet owners are often amazed how their pets seem to know they are coming home long before they are physically at the door. Dr Sheldrake’s works explains these phenomena and more.
Through the experiential exercises in the workshop, you will learn fascinating ways in tapping into the “information field” and become more in touch with your “intuition”. You do not need to be a “case-giver”. Everyone will experience those exercises.
Furthermore, if you become a representative in someone’s case, you will also have first hand experience in developing your perception that is beyond the five senses.
With practice, you will develop stronger perception and confidence in your “intuition” that you can apply in everyday decision making.
You will also learn to develop your “systemic perception” – it is like trying on a new lens. You will expand your perception and approach your life differently that will very likely bring you more peace.
We apply this work in coaching, in solving personal issues, in helping business and non-profit organisations to resolving underlying issues such as succession, trauma and transformation. We also use it to test market response, in guiding best decisions, in periodic “organisational health check”.
Constellation is being successfully applied in looking into root causes of health challenges and in bringing about life-changing healing as well.
For entrepreneurs and business owners, it has been found their connection to their family of origin and hidden entanglements to the systems they belong to (such as cultural roots and society) can have profound impact on their success and fulfillment, and we have been applying this work in leadership development.
Our founder and resident systemic work and constellation facilitator applies the “systemic” attitude towards her coaching and healing work, with or without “constellating”.
Her style of family and systemic constellation is free of melodrama or superstition; and is in line with latest development in the work and is more transformation focused.
Anita has been trained globally with systemic work and family constellation masters operating in a wide spectrum of working styles. Anita discovered her intuitive gifts and a systemic thinking that was perhaps “too early” in her early life, for which she learnt to turn inward, and developed an early interest to philosophy and psychology. However it was after working 10+ years in fashion that she finally underwent her career/life transformation following her life purpose in wellness and personal development. Anita started coaching and health consulting professionally in 2005 and founded i-Detox in 2008 which preceded iLiving. Her specialty and passion is in supporting change and transformation, and her approach is inevitably integrative, bringing together the many tools in her tool box that support evolution.
You may join one or both days. Scroll down to see discounts for joining more than 1 days
The workshop is limited to 14 participants each day, out of which there are 5 spots each day for individual constellations.
Participation as a “non-case-giver” may appeal to individuals who are not ready to reveal private details or those who are new to this work, or anyone who does not have a specific “problem” but would like to experience this work. Past participants have found that they benefitted even without being a “case-giver”.
What Our Participants Say:
“Even though I was not doing my own case, simply by observing and by representing/resonating I have gained a lot of insight. Every role I was picked for also touched and healed a part of me.” – Gilbert Ngai, entrepreneur
“Through the years, I have experienced many personal development techniques that Anita has introduced to me. And I have found Systemic Constellations a fascinating approach that delivers lasting results.” – Ian Wells, Engineering Consultant
“I came recommended by my coach. The workshop was an INCREDIBLE experience. I feel so much lighter and at the same time so much more grounded. And it was such an authentic and conscious community Anita and her team have created. I feel very safe and supported by all the participants who feel like family.” – Marija Petrović, in life transition
“Anita is incredibly perceptive, compassionate, non-judgmental and truly ‘present’ in all her systemic constellations and healing facilitations. What else distinguishes Anita and makes her so effective is the combination of her wisdom and insight; her incorporation into each constellation of such other techniques as may be helpful to the process; and her uncanny ability to probe and identify the root of the issue….I have experienced profound changes after participating in workshops she has facilitated and attending private sessions. I would highly and unequivocally recommend Anita!” – Maria Gutierrez, senior corporate attorney
“I have participated in many personal development work throughout the years, and I have found Systemic Constellation to be a very powerful modality that cuts through the chase and effect deep healing within myself and also how people close to me behave towards me.
What I particularly like about Anita’s approach (in group and private session which I have experienced) is her wisdom and how she can intuitively sense what is best for the individual. She draws from a whole arsenal of tools and uses integrated healing processes to give what is needed at the time. I have experienced profound and immediate shifts every time I work with Anita.” – Alexandra Yung, art consultant
“I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop which was very skillfully facilitated by Anita. Through witnessing and participating in the cases we worked on, I gained some very valuable insights, and deepened my ability to be with emotions and the sometimes really hard facts of life that affect us every day. The strength and clarity I gain each time I experience this approach helps me to look clearly at my own life’s path and calmly and compassionately support others as a coach.
I especially valued Anita’s willingness to address the collective traumas that affect all of us although we rarely have the courage to face up to them. Being a part of this work in a group is very rewarding.” – Angela Spaxman, Career & Executive Coach
“I have experienced family constellations with many experienced facilitators all over the world. Since it’s a such a powerful modality, it’s quite important for the facilitator who can maintain a high level of authenticity and neutrality. I like working with Anita because not only does she have the essential quality of a facilitator who can hold that space, her broad background in spirituality and her open and live-and-learn attitude allows her approach to be both broad and deep.” – Emily Chen
Always Get Good Vibes at the iLiving healing space...
Our workshop space is carefully shielded from external electro-magnetic radiation with special EMF shielding curtain from Germany. We also enhance internally with Bioresonance Rayonex Duplex IV biofield forming device that amplifies beneficial frequencies that neutralise the negative effects of electro-magnetic fields generated as an inevitable part of office operation and any possible geopathic stresses. Our space is designed to be conducive to meditative and healing work.
Should you join the workshop or book a private session?
You can do either or both. Both are powerful and experiential. Many prefer group workshops in the sense that they are also getting the benefit by observing or participating in others’ constellations which often widen and deepen their own healing and realisation. And workshop participation is more affordable.
Full Day Systemic Constellation Workshop:
There are only 4 spots total in a day for own cases. Do register early. Non-case-givers will also experience group constellation exercises and/or experience healing from representing and holding space for others.
