Myths and Truths About Family Constellations

Dear Seekers,

In recent times, the approach of understanding and healing through exploring family constellations has garnered attention. Despite its rising popularity, there are several myths surrounding this approach. In this blog post, we will debunk five common myths and shed light on the truths behind them.

Myth 1: It is a Religious Practice

Truth: This healing approach is not tied to any religion. While Bert Hellinger, the founder of this method, had a background in Catholic upbringing and even spent time as a missionary, the practice itself is not based on any religious doctrine. It is fundamentally grounded in understanding our family history and the patterns, behaviors, and traditions that are passed down through generations. It is about connecting with the roots and understanding the deep-seated beliefs that govern our family dynamics.

Myth 2: It is Associated with Spiritism

Truth: The practice leverages the concept of morphic resonance fields, a scientifically acknowledged phenomenon, to represent various family issues during the sessions. While participants might experience different sensations and emotions within this field, it does not involve channeling spirits or any other entities. It is a grounded approach that seeks to foster understanding and healing through the exploration of family dynamics.

Myth 3: It is a Scripted Theatre Performance

Truth: While group sessions involve individuals representing various family members and issues, it is not a scripted performance. It is an organic process where the focus remains on exploring the spontaneous feelings and sensations that emerge within the morphic resonance field. It is a genuine exploration of emotions and relationships, without any pre-defined scripts, allowing for a natural unfolding of understanding and insights.

Myth 4: It Utilizes Toys in the Sessions

Truth: In individual sessions, small figures might be used to represent family members and other elements such as fears, diseases, etc. However, referring to these as toys would be a misrepresentation. These figures serve as tools to delve deeper into the underlying dynamics of family relationships and issues, facilitating a visual and tangible representation to aid in the exploration process.

Myth 5: It is a Form of Therapy

Truth: While it is a healing approach, it does not qualify as therapy in the traditional sense. It can, however, complement regular therapy sessions by helping individuals gain a deeper understanding of themselves through the lens of their family history and dynamics. The facilitators in these sessions are not therapists; they are there to guide the session, helping individuals to unearth insights into their family background and dynamics.
