In the year 2004, I was introduced to the work of Family Constellation and begin to host monthly workshops in my home in New York City. I realized immediately in this work that there was an undeniable truth that revealed itself as the background how life moves which I began to understand as “the highway of the soul”. And in the same way that vehicles move on a highway, motivated by their driver’s destinations, all together at different times and speeds, so do we, as human beings, move throughout our life beginning with our birth to our eventual exit. We all move as an invisible tribe, part of a greater Soul, where are closest affinities and influences lie with our families.
I was very fortunate to have Roberta Maria Atti, as our Family constellation facilitator.She had trained directly under Hellinger and was absolutely brilliant in how she represented this work. It was during one of these constellation workshops that Ms. Atti desired to have her own constellation and ask me if I would facilitate her constellations. I was, at first, totally taken by surprise for I had never facilitated nor ever been formally trained. But she assured me that I could do it. And to my utter surprise, she was right!
The language of the soul is best expressed through the body’s movement and I can only speculate that a great part of my ease in feeling a person’s inner state through how they moved came from my 20 years as a professional dancer. But it did not explain how I was able to remove all intentions or motivations to “prescribe” solutions and instead simply stay in tune with a force well beyond my intellect that sought solely to bring together that which had been separated. For only then, can one be put back into motion towards it’s own destiny.
