What is Family/Systemic Constellation and who is it for?
Constellation work can benefit everyone. All of us come from our parents and are part of a system – in the family, in our country, our work place and so on. And out of all the “systems” we belong to, the family of origin is the first system we belong to.
We are connected on many “unseen” levels, like on an unseen spider web, that spans across space and even time. The deeper causes to our challenges can be due to negative “entanglements” that are not immediately obvious to us. And that is what Constellation work addresses by making the unseen visible in 3-dimensional space, and with facilitation of a qualified facilitator, resolution and balance can be restored when the client simply acknowledges what shows up.
The principles of Constellation can be applied to any system – family as well as businesses or any organisation, even country. When someone participates in Constellation and arrive at a resolution, the ripple effect is created that extends beyond that person simply because of our underlying connectedness.
Origin and Key Principles of Family Constellation
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 or for facilitation of consciousness evolution on the personal and systemic levels.
The principles in Family Constellation have nothing to do with morals, but they have emerged in therapies and practitioners simply follow these existential principles and facilitate the participants to see and acknowledge what was hidden.Exclusion of family members in the family (e.g.from abortion, miscarriages, suicides, “black sheep” in the family, divorce, given away for adoption 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 a kind of entanglement.
Another cause of entanglement on the intuitive and transgenerational level can be that of victim and perpetrator – on the personal even national level.
Adoption, divorce, separation of the new born from the mother in early life, war, migration etc all can have impact on the people in the system beyond the immediate.
Application of Family/Systemic Constellation
Bert Hellinger calls Constellation “an attitude to life” and he believes if everyone in the world does just one Constellation, there will be world peace. In fact he was nominated for Nobel Prize for Peace.
Constellation is also being used in executive coaching, in resolving underlying business and organisational issues. However for business owners or anyone having challenges professionally, Family Constellation is still always a good place to start as we all originate from our biological family.
Those who have experienced Family/Systemic Constellation often find the experiential process fascinating, profound or profoundly touching, and the insights they gain from the experience could not have been gained from other modalities.
The science behind Constellation?
The science of Epigenetics is now suggesting that what our grandparents or great-grandparents experienced is passed down to us biologically. What is passed down to us is more than the physical attributes but emotional patterns and imprints from their experiences.
For example the children and grand children of the holocaust, even though they did not experience the Holocaust, suffer from PTSD.
Renowned Biologist 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
German origin Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt M.D., PhD, who is renowned for treating the most difficult health cases (patients who “have tried everything”) places Family Constellation as the 4th level of healing in his 5 levels of Healing model, below the ultimate level of “God” and “the divine”. (The 5 levels of Healing approach underlies Eastern medicine such as Tibetan, Chinese, Ayurvedic medicine and yogic tradition of healing.) This recording explains how he would for example treat autistic children not just addressing heavy metal and EMF stresses but also by Family Constellation: www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2EB4m9-DCw)
“Systemic (Family) Therapy” or “Family Constellation” can be considered a new science that serves to understand how underlying current and past transgenerational bonds, unspoken agreements, events or traumas may be influencing our life.
How does Family Constellation improve one’s life?
Just as physical symptoms in our body call our attention to look at the root causes and to restore balance, challenges in our family system can call our attention to look at the root causes until balance is restored.
This is why people who go through the Family Constellation with openness can experience profound shifts in many areas in their lives. Often unexplained blockages dissolve, destructive behaviours such as addiction, suicidal thoughts, etc change, more clarity emerges, as one find root causes for their challenges.
A competent Constellation facilitator is compassionate and yet neutral. Their role is to “hold the space” for what shows up and guides the client to acknowledge what is asking to be acknowledged. Constellation work can effect profound benefits especially when facilitated optimally.
What to expect in the Family Constellation workshop
Especially in more recent (post 2000) development of Family Constellation, there is less “drama” and the representatives are guided to follow the inner urge to move, and from their movement, the experienced facilitator guides the client to witness and acknowledge what emerges. Often specific resolution sentences are used the profound shifts take place.
Family Constellation can also be a deep experience for those who are in representative roles and even for those who just observe the process.
How do the representatives know what to do or say?
The science behind constellation can be explained with the morphogenic resonance or morphic field by Cambridge educated biologist Dr Rupert Sheldrake who discovered how information and experience appeared to be transferable outside of time and space. In Family Constellation, it is also referred to as the “Knowing Field”. In this quantum space, a lot of information exists and whether we are aware or not, a part of us exists in this space and interacts with it all the time.
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.
LIFE INTEGRATION PROCESS – future of Constellation
Life Integration Process or LIP was developed and created in 2011 by Dr. Wilfried Nelles, an experienced Family Constellation trainer who has worked closely with Bert Hellinger, the founder of Family Constellation.
Since his development of the LIP, Dr Nelles no longer facilitates Family Constellations and has been focused on the Life Integration Process.
Regardless of how grown up we feel and present ourselves, our child feelings and behavioral patterns deeply impact our daily lives, especially when we are under stress. We have all come with an inner vision into this world, with specific and unique potential that is meant to unfold through us during the course of our lives. Yet it’s easy to become disconnected with this inner vision. The Life Integration Process (LIP) is a powerfully direct yet profound application of Constellation principles that can facilitate lasting integration of our conflicting tendencies and connect us to our inner vision. The result is profound sense of inner strength and peace.
Like Family Constellation, LIP goes beyond the intellectual to the somatic and allows for powerful shift as a result. But unlike Family Constellation, representatives are used to represents one’s different life stages.
While Family Constellation looks at our place in the family system, LIP looks at the most important relationships of all – our relationship with ourself.
LIP may especially benefit practitioners or individuals who have experienced Family Constellation work and are ready for deeper level of integration.

It is ESSENTIAL that for your maximum benefit you attend one of these workshops if you are new to Family Constellation before you participate in the full day workshops or experience a private session with Monika Wyss.
This workshop covers the key principles in Family/Systemic Constellation with fascinating examples, the science, and the i-Detox team will share their first hand experience led by i-Detox founder Anita Cheung. Simply by attending one of these preparation/introduction sessions you would already start to expand your awareness and start to benefit.

Full day Constellation Workshops
26th Jan 2018(Fri) 10am – 5pm
27th Jan 2018(Sat) 10am - 5pm
28th Jan 2018(Sun) 10am – 5pm
(You may join 1, 2 or all 3 days)
On each day of the full day workshops facilitated by Monika Wyss, there is only 4 spots for participants who only want their Family Constellation, and 2 spots for those who want both Life Integration Process. (It is not advisable to do both on one day as you need to process the experience.)
One can also join as an observer (and you may be selected as a representative in a constellation which you may accept or decline). Often the observer also experiences healing and receives profound insight relevant to them.
If you would like to have both Family Constellation (FC) and Life Integration Process (LIP) facilitated for you, you are advised to have prior experience of Family Constellation. You may also book for your personal Family Constellation with Monika as private session or in the workshop first, then participate in Life Integration Process (LIP).
LIP is available in the group workshop only.
Central or Sheung Wan (details to be confirmed and shared to participants)
In private sessions the facilitator tunes in as representative and objects are used to represent people or elements.
Limited Private 1.5 H (approx) Family Constellation sessions are available with Monika on the 24th afternoon, 25th, 29th and 30th January 2018. Please indicate in the registration form below and we will follow up with scheduling.
Should you join the workshop or book a private session?
You can do either or both. Both are very powerful and experiential. Many prefer group workshops in the sense that they are also getting the benefit by observing others’ constellations. In the group workshop, human representatives are used for your Constellation while in the private session, objects are used and the facilitator tune into the morphic field.
