Proposal Presentation of Paper at the World Music Congress at University of Pretoria: 7 – 11 July 2020 by Amanda Gifford ( to be confirmed)
20 minute presentation on Family Constellations.
We can access knowing about much more than we realise. We live in a field of Consciousness and Energy and depending on how we perceive reality so we create the outcomes of the nature of our reality. Family Constellations was founded by Bert Hellinger who trained with the Zulus in KZN as a Sangoma for 15 years and then took the practice back to Europe and created a hybrid form of African Traditional Wisdom that was mixed with European psychologies specifically Phenomenology. Family Constellations, also known as Systemic Constellations and Systemic Family Constellations, is an alternative therapeutic method which draws on elements of family systems therapy, existential phenomenology and Zulu attitudes to family. In a single session, a Family Constellation attempts to reveal a supposedly unrecognised dynamic that spans multiple generations in a given family and to resolve the effects of that dynamic by encouraging the subject, through representatives, to encounter and accept the factual reality of the past. It can be applied in various ways. In this 20 minute presentation I will give a short presentation on how I work with it, a bit of the science and present a few client cases.
