The workshop will be an interactive, systemic therapy based on the teachings of Bert Hellinger, the founder of Family Constellations.18 CPD points availableWHAT IS A FAMILY CONSTELLATION?
Family and Systemic Constellations is a therapeutic and healing method developed by German psychotherapist Burt Hellinger. Constellations make visible through embodiment the flow, entanglements and dynamics of elements of a system, whether they are family members, members of an organization, internal sub-personalities or ego states, or dream figures.

According to Tanja Myburgh, an experienced family constellation facilitator and trainer in Cape Town, energy flows from the Source of Life through each generation. Like a river, its natural flow is in this direction and we receive the gift of life from our ancestors, via our parents. Within this flow, Hellinger found there are natural laws and that all members or elements of a system must have their place. Entanglements interrupt this flow, as do excluded parts of the system, such as forgotten family members or aspects of the self.

CLIENTS FEEDBACK:“I found the weekend amazingly powerful and I am incredibly excited about using this work and continuing on the process of learning…I am using the work already on a daily basis and both myself and my clients are loving it.   On a personal level I have integrated the work and am beginning to see a shift in myself…” Renee Shearing, Cape Town 2013.

“Thank you so much Amanda! You are a truly remarkable woman. The experience was absolutely amazing. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I have had a very challenging, emotional, unstable past year and I have not done any work on myself for a very long time. This experience was tremendously healing and opened me to positivity and hope once again. It was truly mind blowing to share so much with strangers and feel so safe and with no judgement. Thank you for making this experience possibly for me. The realisation, affirmation, love and acceptance that I received during this experience, It is a gift that I will treasure forever. Thank you for sharing the photos and you absolutely welcome to share the photos.” Love Cindy 4th Feb 2014 Johannesburg.

“With the winds of adventure blowing against my back, I jumped down the rabbit hole and joined Amanda Gifford’s Family Systems Constellations this past weekend. Well, what can I say – a profound experience indeed. Imagine turning your hopes and fears into people and having intellectual conversations with them. It was kind of like that but so much more. Almost impossible to put the whole effect into words. At times I felt energy flowing freely through my body, as I became part of the channelling process. It was a very powerful group. Thanks to all who shared and absorbed. Much gratitude to Amanda for holding such a safe space. Your facilitation was gentle and nurturing, yet very very strong. People walked in surrounded by darkness and left with light emanating from their beings. Watch this space for what Amanda will have up her sleeve for Soulspace 2014 and for Constellations in your Area. Much love Jean Martins (Director of Soulspace Festival) 3rd Feb 2014
