In the course of running Holistic Holidays we have gained insights into many alternative healing and personal growth tools, yet rarely involve in any activities beyond our own base. At the suggestion of my sister Olivia, I flew to Cyprus to attended this workshop and was profoundly impressed by the process, the facilitators and the benefits enjoyed by observers and participators alike. My instant reaction was to enquire whether we could make this workshop available to friends of Holistic Holidays. Here is the result and I urge you to check it out! I’m sure you would find working with Stephen Victor a powerful, positive and memorable experience.
Stephen Victor’s seminars are unique in that he takes Bert Hellinger’s ancestral energy work – a simple yet powerful method of healing – to new dimensions. This powerful process works by participants standing in for the energies of people and issues related to the subject person. The energy field hosted by these participants is referred to as a “constellation” (see below) and Steven facilitates a resolution of this reassembled energy field of matters past and present which affect our future.
A personal constellation is constructed when Stephen invites a group member to work on a personal issue, whether a family problem, a health problem or where life is taking them. He then asks them to choose people from the group to stand up and represent family members of the person with the issue, e.g. their father and mother. These people are placed in the centre, ' the field', and once in place, they take on the feelings, memories and even symptoms of the people they represent. The person having the constellation sits down and observes. All that unfolds in the centre, the field, is done without trying . It just happens and its neither role play nor psycho drama. There is no speech unless asked a question by Stephen and no movement unless told to move at will. Through this constellation any entanglements in the family soul can be revealed, acknowledged, honoured and healer. Healing is received by the person who has the constellation, those who stand in and those who observe. Ripples also flow out to the family soul, from the ancestors to our children and to future generations. (Please note that to have your Constellation explored you need to book in advance)
Healing is received by all workshop observers by ‘being in the field’ whether ‘standing in’ as a participant, observing a constellation or having a personal constellation. Our own issues and family entanglements are often mirrored by those of others. Healing is also received by all members of the family soul, including ancestors, and our children too are freed from the patterns of the past.
The ‘new constellations’ which the Field is now allowing to come through heighten spiritual awareness. They help to balance the divine masculine and feminine and bring in energies of healing for the land, the ancestors and all peoples. Stephen’s work is very strong and passionate, yet humble and profoundly sacred.
Stephen Victor engages the wisdom of the human heart to illuminate love’s movement within the lives of individuals, families and groups – assisting them to embrace the expression and experience they want. In the 25 years of facilitating change for others, Stephen has drawn on Applied Sociology, Mediation, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Andean Mysticism and Shamanic Practice – and Hellinger Family Constellations. For ten years he has been co-leading annual spiritual initiations into the Peruvian Andes. Having studied directly with ,learning his groundbreaking trans-generational work, Stephen, too, is innovative and pioneering in his own trans-dimensional healing. Stephen leads public Fields of Grace workshops and year-long training seminars and serves as a consultant to businessin the US, Europe and the Middle East. He lives in Ashland, Oregon.
“Once we have repaired the wounds of past generations and our inherited patterns of thought, behaviour or illness, then we can use the energetic support of our ancestors to work on other aspects of our lives, including manifesting our goals and dreams”. Bert Hellinger
