Constellations focus on the information, the relationships and the flow emerging from the "field" (family, collective, ancestors, inner parts, organizations, etc.). What, in regards to the issue, needs to be seen? What needs to be acknowledged behind and/or integrated?
Research points out that constellation work (as well as psychotherapy and counseling) fulfills similar purposes and functions like rituals, especially rituals of transition.
We find rituals in all human societies. Depending on the culture, they vary in their world-view, interpretation, and symbolism. What they all have in common: they are structured. These structures provide the holding space necessary for change processes. Also, the rituals of the transition offer resources for healing and, encourage strength and invite steps toward a new perspective.
The workshop will be an interplay between constellations and different ritualistic structures. Depending on the issues of the participants, we will explore the universal formulation of the wheel and/or structures in lines and polarities or circles (like ancestor circles). The combination of these clear structures with resources and open process work can be powerful providing healing impulses on different levels.

The Constellation method is a powerful therapeutic approach that focuses on re-establishing movement and flow within our hearts and souls which can be difficult to achieve with traditional psychotherapy alone. As part of their approach to Constellations work, Kate and Tony combine traditional Gestalt psychotherapy with the Somatic to provide a truly felt experience.
Kateryna Sabanska is a certified Gestalt psychotherapist, and faculty member/supervisor at the Interregional Institute of Gestalt Therapy and Art. Kate has over 10 years of experience in the field.
Tony Karajanis is a Marriage and Family Therapist, and Administrator for the New England Center for Systemic Constellations. Tony is a trained systemic therapist and has studied at the International Intensive Conference for Systemic Constellations.
Both Kate and Tony are trained Systemic Family Constellations Facilitators through the New England Center for Systemic Constellations.
Participants can expect the following:
Mindfulness preparation to ground ourselves for the work
The creation of a safe, respectful and nurturing space
Depending upon group size, both small and larger Constellation work.
What "road blocks" have you tripped over time and time again? Come and spend an evening widening your view, find out what you can see, and leave with a shift of perspective, so that you can head into your future: Clear of the baggage from your past.
A kind of "living map," Family Constellations is a unique, phenomenological approach that explores the hidden dynamics that keep us from living our most authentic lives. It has the potential to touch us on a deep energetic level, lending perspective and new sight, often leading to a transformation in our lives and the lives of those around us. This work deepens the respect for the mystery of life and the forces that shape it.
These evenings are for people new to Family Constellations and for experienced practitioners. Each evening is a stand-alone event.
Feel free to attend for one night or for all!

Unresolved issues from the past may cause the heart to shut down. If left unattended, this disruption in the flow of love carries across generations, ripples into the shadows of the family landscape, often emerging as illness, emotional difficulties, and broken relationships.

The overall program will involve theory, personal constellations, working with trauma, couples and individuals, practice and supervision.

The structure of these programs is completed with care and intention and best methods for learning how to do systemic family constellation work. They have been developed with precision, usability, and ease of learning in mind without sacrificing the best of the work. Our program is based on the phenomenological, philosophical approach originally developed by Bert Hellinger ,a German psychotherapist, who developed this method. Attention to skill development for the participant is of high importance. Personal development through interchanges with members of the program as well as one’s own family constellations is also valued. Theory as appropriate to match the phenomenon, is also focused upon.
The primary trainers of the program have extensive backgrounds in many theories and practices of psychotherapy. They also have extensive university teaching experience, agency work, and consultation skills. These trainers have also presented at national and international intensives of family and systemic constellation work. In addition to presentations at conferences, training programs, and public workshops they also have published articles on the topic of systemic and family constellations.
Our students, 90% who have advanced degrees, are solidly prepared and grounded in constellation work. The participants are exposed to couples, organizational, community, and nature constellations as well.
A significant number of our graduates are practicing systemic work. Some have been creative and adapted it to their primary work situations. Many seek supervision of their work as well as ongoing and advanced trainings to support their new positions as facilitators.
