Accessing the bigger picture of a child’s world through Constellations through the work of Una O’Connell, Sharon Ruvane and Carla Van Walsum.
Access the Bigger Picture: Understanding and Support Through Constellations
Presenter: Carla Van Walsum, PhD
Clinical science in psychology shows that traumas are stored in the limbic brain for three to seven generations. Children can be burdened by a lack of care and love in their daily lives and also touched by trans generational unhealed wounds.
In this workshop you will experience how to gain insights about the inner world of the child or teen. Carla will show how she uses footprints, circles and figurines, to answer the following questions:
How can parents and children be supported in a better understanding of each other and learn respectful communications skills?
How can we use our conscious language to avoid creating more scars?
How can Crystal Clear Communication reinstate bonding and activate the flow of love again?
How can constellations help in moving from a closed heart to an open heart and to accept what is?
Carla’s mapping techniques will reveal the truth of the child or teen, without the need to share an in-depth story. Stories including their resolutions will be shared, as well as practical exercises.
