Family and Community Constellations

Monday, 4 Jun 2018

Sonya Welch-Moring has over 25 years experience facilitating groups and has specialised in the systemic family constellations method since 2011. She is a trained mental health professional, group facilitator and accredited coach.  Systemic constellations is a transgenerational process that explores problems and difficulties in family relationships and community life.  When we look deeper, we often find untold stories and secrets in the ancestral line, that if unresolved may recycle into later generations.  When this happens different family members may feel that they are carrying the weight of these exclusions, without a sense of knowing why.  Sonya will be looking through a systemic constellations lens to identify how history, cultural heritage and the unspoken past impact the present.  She will also explore how reconnection to our ancestral lineage through using the constellations method may support change for future generations.

Future workshops:

Constellations Circle on the 9th June –  2pm-5pm

Constellations workshop – 29th Sept – Details to be announced
