Family Constellations

In working with several thousand family systems, Bert Hellinger has uncovered what he describes as the age-old Orders of Love, which are deeply embedded in the unconscious of family groups. 

Shavasti is a seasoned facilitator with more than 25 years facilitating workshops globally with
several books to his name and more than 500 workshops on 6 continents within
his scope of experience. He has led workshops in the UK, USA, the Netherlands,
Thailand, Bali, Australia, Bulgaria, Turkey, India, Cyprus, UAE, South Africa
and Brazil.

The Power of Family Constellation Work

Family Constellations workshops are designed for individuals and couples who are seeking ways of working with difficulties in their lives, whether manifest in physical illness or in disruptive life patterns, as well as therapists and health care practitioners and who are looking to expand the way they work with their clients. Anyone can benefit.

Why You Can Benefit
In almost every family there are things that have happened that can disturb the harmony of the family. It is important that no one is ever forgotten or shut out of a family. On every level there is a need for balance between giving and receiving (between individuals, families & larger groups such as nations).
Children can become entwined in the emotions and traumas of another member of the family and take them on as their own. Plus, there are certain events that have a deep residual impact on family members, such as:
  • An early death of parents or grandparents
  • Surviving Twin
  • Tragic accidents where a member of the family has died
  • Divorce
  • Miscarriages, Stillbirths, Abortions, Death of a Child
  • A member of the family forced into the role of “Black Sheep”
  • War
  • Holocaust Survivor Guilt/Loss
  • Descendents of Jewish Pogroms
  • Descendents of African slaves
  • Adoptions
  • A mother that dies during childbirth

The Method

A Family Constellation is created where members of a group are asked to represent members of a family. Everyone is intuitively placed in a position, including an individual that takes the place of yourself whereby the family constellation comes to life. Those who represent family members begin to feel the emotions, fears and desires of the persons concerned.

Through this method disharmony comes to light. In a very remarkable and astounding way, the true story of the family is expressed and clearly seen for the first time. With participation by those who ‘play’ the roles of others, the family constellation becomes a deep experience. Many people report recognizing situations they represent but are surprised at how intense the experience can be. Irrespective of your age, each of us is a child, and what a child wants more than anything else is to find harmony within the family.


Workshops are held in various locations around the world on a regular basis. See main page for details.
