Description of Challenge
We are all interconnected and part of diverse systems, which are informed and coloured by the
past and recent experiences and stories. How can we get in contact with the more subtle and
hidden patterns, the underlying dynamics which are at play and which often take a more important
role in our day to day work and relationships and how can we allow a healthy balance and
understanding for the whole system to occur ?
“The grace with which we embrace life, in spite of the pain, the sorrow, is always a measure of
what has gone before. ” Alice Walker
Systemic constellations create a living dynamic map of an issue within a certain system and are a
practical, respectful and often profound way of illuminating the dynamics in coaching,
organisational and other relational systems.
The map (made up of ‘representatives’ – people in workshops, or objects in onetoone coaching)
which a constellation creates, allows coach and client to access the wider system, see the hidden
forces at play and identify new paths to lasting resolution.
The method has been described as Quantum mysticism and its founder Bert Hellinger
incorporates the idea of morphic resonance into his explanation of it. Many people contributed to
the development of the process; however, the Germanborn Bert Hellinger (b. 1925) is widely
acknowledged as the founder of the process in its modern form.
Systemic Constellation offer an opportunity to experience the natural balancing forces which
influence personal and organisational health and apply them to current challenges, supporting
