Ancestral Constellations in a Time of Change
The Coronavirus Pandemic is creating change and transition on a level the world has not seen before, it's going to take time to adapt and re-set our lives. Over the past year, I have been moving online offering Individual Personal Consultations and Witness Pods for two family members. New in 2020 is a collaboration with (PCSR) Psychotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility offering Social Justice and Community workshops that aim to develop 'Dialogue on Difference'.
A Transgenerational Diaspora Map
Ancestral Constellations explores 'our transgenerational roots', family relationships, community networks and diaspora journeys through the creation of a transgenerational map. The process incorporates African traditional teachings and explores the historical legacies that continue to impact family life in BIPOC Diaspora communities. Often we are encouraged to 'forget' the past and move forward, but RE-Membering the ancestral line can help to heal family disharmony and conflict. When generational issues remain unresolved, it seeps into family life as re-cycling patterns of disconnection and conflict. When clarity can be found about what has been carried from the past into the present, solutions can be sought and change created for future generations.
Social and Community - Learning Circles
Ancestral Constellations circles, in collaboration with Psychotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility (PCSR), look at the difficult conversations that are ongoing in public life. How do White people become powerful allies to Black people and people of colour? How can we make sense of continuing discrimination and inequality in society? How do we explore concepts like 'race' and 'colourism' without falling back on binary constructs? How do we address questions of migration and belonging? What is white fragility and privilege and what action can be taken to make a difference? Adapting the Ancestral Constellations approach to fit a social justice context, creates a place for learning and dialogue in a 'holding' space.

Safe Spaces - Visioning and Exploring
In creating safe spaces to focus on this deep work, people are often surprised at what emerges. As we explore family lineage over generations and/or socio-historical community events, strong feelings can surface. When you book a consultation or workshop, I will ask you to complete an agreement form that will help build support, outlining clearly how we will work together.
