Healing Family and Ancestors – Ceremonial Family Constellations
Heal family trauma, release unhelpful patterns, and dissolve transgenerational tendencies in this powerful family constellations workshop.
When ancestors or family members have died too young or left the family under unusual or difficult circumstances—such as accidents, suicides, wars, addictions, mental illnesses, emigrations, incarcerations, and adoptions—these separations can cause painful patterns of exclusion that are frozen in time, trapped in the unconscious field of the family, acting like magnets that later generations are unconsciously drawn to repeat. People then find themselves doing things that make no sense in the context of their own lives, until they discover which earlier family member they're "following." These inherited patterns can create powerful unconscious compulsions. By honoring and restoring what has been excluded, however, we can re-establish the integrity of the field, dissolve the transgenerational tendencies, and liberate the living, their children, and future generations. This work, which seems to restore aspects of the psyche closed to normal therapy, can be intense, oracular, and profoundly healing. Family and Ancestral Healing is for those who find themselves doing things that don't make sense in the context of their own lives and for those who want to transform strong negative family patterns or low-grade inherited irritations into powerful gifts and blessings for themselves, their family, and posterity. Purce’s unique method combines chanting, ceremony, and family constellations to heal the resonant fields of family and ancestors, unlocking persistent patterns and restoring order and joy.
