30th November 2019 – The Roots of Family Constellations Workshop

This one day ‘Roots of Family Constellations’ workshop will be held on the 30 November.  It is an opportunity to explore the ‘roots’ of the family constellations method, drawing on the African wisdom embedded within the process. A personal constellation reveals your ‘living family tree’. You will explore your network of family relationships, your cultural identity, and your place of belonging in the family.  It is both a ‘step’ into family research and a re-connection to your ancestors.
