A Shadow Constellations Focused Workshop
29/7/2023 – 10am-12:30pm – CEST – Online


Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” C.G. Jung

The Shadow is the realm of the unconscious into which we put all the self-parts we repress and deny, that we disown and can’t acknowledge in ourselves. The Shadow is ‘born’ to the family we are born into and into the culture(s) we are brought up in. The Shadow is the”child” of trauma – its shaped after the traumas of our ancestors.

Power is rarely neutral in our Shadow space. Either Power or powerlessness are often in the center of our Shadow.
When power is in the Shadow, we will encounter the victim, the one who is easily hurt or abused by others  and waits to be saved. We will meet judgments about power and the people who choose to own it and various symptoms related to lack of energy.
We also comes the silent accomplices – those who actually had the power to stop things from happening but either didn’t feel that they had the power or were too afraid of the consequences of using it.

When Powerlessness is in the Shadow, we will encounter the perpetrators who abused their power and the saviors who used (or at least tried to use) their power to save the victim. Here we will often see action, triggering and judgements towards those who have Power in their Shadow, a desire to change reality or change other people perception of reality.


In this Shadow Constellations workshop we will look at the main archetypes surrounding Power and and Powerlessness, the common ways we are triggered by them that we should be familiar with as professional helpers and work with a couple of structures to support integration with both Power and its absence in us.

You will receive
Shadow work theory for professionals.
A couple of powerful experiential personal processes supporting integrating with your power and powerlessness alike.
An understanding of how Shadows of Power invisibly affect your relationships with clients and students (and also partners, children and colleagues).
♥ Time for sharing and Q&A

Shadow Constellations combine
the healing potential of both Family Constellations as developed by Bert Hellinger and Shadow Work as developed by Carl Jung. It connects Inter-generational trauma healing with Self-Parts Integration in novel ways.

You don’t need to have experience with Family Constellations in order to participate – all professional helpers are welcome to broaden the horizons, receive new perspectives and very practical tools to work deeply and safely with people.

This 2.5 hours focused workshop is for therapists, facilitators, teachers, practitioners and other professional helpers who work with people.
