We are very excited to have Peter deVries coming to Newbridge Health & Wellness to offer a Family Constellation workshop on Saturday, November 16th from 9:00am to 5:00pm! Peter has been teaching the Family Constellation approach for more than 20 years and has had extensive training and education in psychology and counseling.

In functional medicine, we approach illness, healing, and optimal wellness through addressing and considering the mind, body, and spirit. Family Constellations is one of the many ways you can go about addressing your physical body through addressing your mind, spirit, and emotions.

Family Constellations is about “a journey that you can take through the layers of the good and the bad, the right and the wrong of the systems you belong to and discovering where you are free and where you are bonded”. Often, what happens in our individual pasts or in the pasts of our families can leave a lasting impact if not addressed in a permanent way. By ignoring or not acknowledge past occurrences, intentional or not, we can bear our own personal burdens as well as unconsciously take on the burdens of our ancestors.

Constellations are about offering a way to grow in awareness of “hidden dynamics in the various relational systems you are a part of and make them visible and workable”. In becoming aware, there is then space for self-reflection and deeper understanding of how we can get stuck in cyclical negative and disruptive life patterns. It can also shed “new light on problems such as divorce, intimate relationships, depression, low self-esteem, health issues, work challenges and emotional states”.
