Workshop Details

Do you ever feel like certain issues in your life come around again and again, across different situations and relationships? In Gestalt Relational Constellations (GRC), we take a fresh look at the hidden attachments and systemic dynamics that underlie all of our issues (“stuck” and fluid areas alike). Starting with the personal concerns of participants and using the experience of the whole group, we “drop below” the oft-told story, reaching the level of our fondest dreams and heart’s desires. From there we launch a new experiment into what really holds us back, locating new support and new possibility for a creative new move — often in surprising and under-used places.
GRC grows out of the pioneering work of Bert Hellinger and his followers, with the addition of a deep Gestalt commitment to embodied experience, support, and steady focus on the client’s own goals and dreams as our guide. GRC may be used to explore underlying dynamics of any issue — family of origin, current family system, interpersonal or work issues, or even such “internal systems” as important decisions or crossroads in our lives.
