Family Constellations: A controversial and bold ‘development’ in therapeutic practices

Family Constellations: A controversial and bold ‘development’ in therapeutic practices I was interviewed by Catherine del Monte, a journalist from the Daily Maverick, on Family Constellations.  I was one of the many facilitators she interviewed for this piece.  It challenged me to put into words what family constellations are all about. I stepped into my first constellation at the start of 2015 without having any clear idea what a family constellation was – I just knew that I needed to experience…

Taking a Break

I wanted this to be a good news mail of welcoming you back into my healing room or an invitation to a Group Constellation in the new workshop space. Even though I enjoy working online, one reaches a point where there is longing to see people who not confined to a screen. So I kept delaying writing, waiting for the yes. My inner knowing did not give me the go-ahead. Instead, this mail is to let you know that I am taking a…

Changing my Story

I need to change my story that goes “My father almost died”.  I was speaking to my friend Sam. I was sitting in the same spot in the garden that I’d been sitting in a few days earlier holding a dove that had flown into a window. A raptor was sitting in a tree opposite us. Waiting. I held the dove to protect it from a certain death. It was on the anniversary of my mother’s passing.  I was not…

This morning I wake to whiteness outside – to a thick fog that has enveloped us.  All that is visible are the trees in the garden.  Gone is the other side of the dam, the scattered farm buildings and orchards on the hill and the mountains that watch over us. The dam water reflecting the soft silver of the morning as it merges with the mist.  I am held in the song of birds. In the distance a tractor starts.…

Navigating this Change

Navigating this Change There’s a well-documented pattern that of behaviour that we all go through when confronted by change. I used to work on projects. The Change Management team would be tracking those affected by the implemented changes – ensuring the right type of support was there as the users moved through the Change Curve. My sense is that we have moved from fear to the anger and frustration phase. Our government does not have a team of Change Managers standing on the sidelines to coach the nation…

Letting the Wind Blow in Trust

When the wind is blowing like this – the Air element is making its presence known. The Air Element is about communication – from creating the sound of your words as air passes over your vocal cords to the airwaves that support electronic communication.

Creating Connection and Opening the Heart

That same heart opening I felt watching these two elephants, I so often feel during Family Constellation work. These giant beings embody that graceful honouring and gentle surrendering to one’s Life that may be witnessed towards the end of a Group Family Constellation

Emerging into Flow

I’m in awe of the tenacity of these delicate petals that in their tight binding push their way through the rain soften clay earth.

Revoking Soul Contracts

I have always had a great need to be in control. It took me a long time to figure that out. I needed to keep things together. Avoiding situations where I could loose control of myself or what was happening round me.

The Benefits of Eating the Pie

The Benefits of Eating the Pie This weekend I was reminded again that there is no right or wrong, no good or bad.  We are so ready to judge ourselves.  On my drive up to Clanwilliam, I stopped to buy some oranges.  I bought naartjies (he oranges looked too yellow) and a pie (because it was there).  And I ate the pie.  I can’t say that I particularly enjoyed the pie – yet as I ate it I berated myself.…
