This website is the new home of CarinaScotland with Clare now offering workshops in England as well as in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The Constellation approach offers a healing methodology that allows us to gain insight into ourselves and our current struggles; as we open our minds and hearts to a bigger picture. At a constellation workshop we use the group to create a ‘living map’ of a larger set of systems – our family, the community, society. We take into account the intergenerational transmission of trauma, and the feelings and learned survival systems that may be inhibiting our growth and potential.
Using this process we hope to bring into relationship parts of ourselves, or our world, that have become separated; and in doing so, with warmth, support and empathy, we may encounter a greater capacity for healing within ourselves.
This approach has the capacity to clarify hidden dynamics – for example the trauma or difficulties that may have been experienced by previous generations; or rejected and painful emotions that have had to be suppressed within the family; which may be actively burdening or entangling you in the here and now. Difficult events often result in people being excluded from a family’s narrative of their history, while simultaneously being burdened by what they unconsciously carry from the past. The strength and energy to live life more fully become more easily available when we are willing and able to see where the feelings have really come from. The constellation approach provides the opportunity to do this, in a non-judgmental and confidential space.
