Workshop So1: Sunday, Oct. 23, 2016, 11:00 am – 01:00 pm

The first reaction of every client that I ask this question is one of astonishment and confusion.

The posttraumatic pathology could take on many forms; either psychological or physical illnesses. But we need to look behind them. Working on a symptom is never healing, simply because the symptom is never the real problem. We need to consider it as a reaction to “something”, and this “something” is a type of trauma: trauma of love, existential or trauma of loss. 

Sometimes I observe in constellations, that the ‘I’, hides behind the ‘symptom’, as a result of a destructive relationship. Or that the illness is not the illness, it’s her own early trauma she doesn’t want to see. Or that the “I” is trying to reach the neglecting mother through the developed autoimmune disease.

The illness as a distraction, preventing us from noticing something we don’t want to see in our life, a protective mechanism against the trauma feelings. Understanding the unconscious role this plays really can make a difference in our healing process.  

I will facilitate one or two constellations to provide the opportunity to see more clearly the causes behind the psychological and somatic illnesses.
