Inspired by the work of Bert Hellinger, creator of Family Constellations.
Biography of Bert Hellinger
* 1925 † 2019
Bert Hellinger studied philosophy, theology and education. He worked for 16 years as a missionary for a Catholic order among the Zulus in South Africa. There he was intensively engaged with the influence of group dynamics. Afterwards Bert Hellinger became a psychoanalyst and completed various trainings in Primary Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Ericksonian Hypnotherapy and Neurolinguistic Programming.
Over the years he finally developedhis own method: Family Constellation (Familien-Stellen) according to Bert Hellinger was born. Today it is known worldwide and is used in many different areas. In psychotherapy, organizational and management consulting, education, medicine, justice, life and educational counseling and life assistance in the broadest sense.
It is a training for life.
Bert Hellinger researched further and further. New insights and discoveries, gained in practice during seminars, conversations, meditations and many other life situations, were constantly incorporated into his method. Until it became clear that the “Original Family Constellation according to Hellinger” had grown beyond this level. Instead of a rigid technique that could be learned and a claim to help, a posture of a very special kind emerged, so to speak in the first place. A posture of “consenting to what is – exactly as it is”.
Through this approach, the scope and effectiveness of Original Hellinger® Family Constellation has been and continues to be expanded and enhanced. In the meantime, Original Hellinger® Family Constellation has found its way into the courts and the health care system.
Family Constellation is now being further developed by Sophie Hellinger. Ever new observations, insights and findings have led to the current state, Original Hellinger® Family Constellation, with Cosmic Power® taking a special place.
Bert Hellinger has written over 110 books. These have been translated into 38 languages (available in our shop at Amazon and via VideoOnDemand) The work of Bert and Sophie Hellinger is documented in numerous videos and CD/DVDs.
We birth our future”
Family Constellations was first developed by the German therapist, Bert Hellinger. HIs methodology began with observations during his time living amongst the Zulu tribes in Africa as a catholic priest.
He began to observe that when the individual was viewed, less as a separate entity and more as part of a “shared soul”, that individual behaviors, feelings and attitudes, and even physical illness, could now be understood in the context of a larger system far beyond the individuals awareness.
A constellation reveals systemic laws operating within our family system helping us to gain greater insight to greater laws that take us beyond both the personal and the individual family, and bringing us in contact with love’s deepest power, where we all are one. This has an immediate healing effect not only on us, but on everyone who is close to us.
