If you are unable to attend a workshop or private session, a complete professional Constellation is available to you regardless of your location through Zoom or Skype. Online sessions are very similar to Individual private sessions and excellent way to experience the Family Constellation. The sessions are deep and convenient for receiving insight, movement, and solution in transforming issues with health, career, relationship, home, and family. I might ask you to draw your Genogram (family tree) paying particular attention to traumatic events, that have shaken the whole system – and the balance across generations. It is important to find out who has suffered any significant loss – physical, emotional, financial or spiritual, separation, betrayal and who acquired something at the expense of others.

  • Who died early?
  • Who left?
  • Who was abandoned, isolated, or excluded from the family?
  • Who was adopted or who gave a child up for adoption?
  • Who died in childbirth?
  • Who had a stillbirth, miscarriage, or abortion?
  • Who committed suicide?
  • Who committed a serious crime?
  • Who experienced a significant trauma or suffered a catastrophic event?
  • Who lost their home or possessions and had difficulty recovering?
  • Who suffered in war?
  • Who died in or participated in the Holocaust or some other genocide?
  • Who was murdered?
  • Who murdered someone or felt responsible for someone’s death or misfortune?
  • Who hurt, cheated, or took advantage of someone?
  • Who profited from another’s loss?
  • Who was wrongly accused?
  • Who was jailed or institutionalized?
  • Who had a physical, emotional, or mental disability?
  • Which parent or grandparent had a significant relationship prior to getting married, and what happened?
  • Was someone deeply hurt by another?
  • Did anyone, including you, experience a week or more away from mother at an early age?
  • Did your parents go on a vacation when you were young?
  • Were you sent away to visit relatives or grandparents?
  • Were you or your mother ever hospitalized and forced to be apart from one another?
  • Did something traumatic happen while your mother was pregnant with you?
  • Did you experience a difficult birth?
  • Were you born premature?
  • Were you adopted or separated from the mother shortly after birth?
  • Did you experience a trauma or a separation from your mother during your childhood?
  • Did your mother experience a trauma or emotional turmoil during your childhood?

Refer to list of question to keep in mind while working on your Genogram. The family members or elements belonging to the issue that you bring to the session are represented by small figures or any object that may be used as a stand-in to take the place of what in a workshop setting would be a live representative. This spatial setting out of the people or elements that belong to your issue offers an immediate visual mapping out of the relationships between each person in the family system. The issue often appears as a symptom of the hidden dynamics within the family system.

I will guide you by a ‘felt sense’, a felt experience of what changes each time one of the elements of your inner image (externalized by the 3-dimensional picture) moves, or when a new element or person is introduced into the constellation image. We will be looking how to discover and address any possible entanglements within your system and to find a way out from the stuck place. Then we make a bridge from past to present and see where could be your next step in life.

By allowing me to internalize your inner image, we are enabling you to have a meta-view of your issue. This can allow you more easily to move away from being stuck in the story of the problem. The hidden knowledge that lies underneath ‘the story’ is what can be accessed through trusting the responses of my body during the constellation process. The uncovering of what has been unseen allows a new movement, a new way of telling your story. This in turn opens up the possibility of telling a new story that can carry a new meaning and new ways of acting and being in your world.

Good afternoon, my name is Tatiana. I am 39 years old. Four years ago, I had an accident, after which my life completely changed. I lost a lot of strength, health, husband, good work. Life is divided into before and after. I addressed many different psychologists, went to trainings and seminars, but everything returned to normal. In September 2018, I turned to Riva Furman with a request that I was afraid to do anything, because nothing works, everything ends badly, and it feels like if I do anything, the result is only worse. She worked with me with her unique method, which includes hypnotherapy and systemic constellations. I saw that I was still living in that situation with the accident, although I thought that I had worked it completely. There were documents that I kept for 4 years and a strong hatred of one of the women with whom fate had brought me together. And I could not leave everything in the past and held on to them. I am very grateful to Riva that she showed it to me, I was finally able, after working with her, to get rid of the documents that held me back, to thank the situation, to finally say goodbye to the situation. Riva also helped me to end the relationship with that woman and move on with my life. Riva works very carefully and deeply, you can fully trust and open up to her. Thank you Riva.

I will give an example. During each workshop, we make a specific request about what we would like to change in our life. I made a request “what do I need to do to enjoy communicating with my children?”. I love my children, of course. They 5 and 6 years old and raising them without any support of grandparents is not easy. In addition, I have my own business and I am very tired mentally and physically as I am also very active person and I have many hobbies too. As a result, when it comes to vacation, for example, I do not consider the option of taking my children to a trip. For me it is more straining rather than relaxing. And I really wanted it to be different. To be able to communicate with joy, not just responsibility. After the workshop everything changed. Do not ask me how, but suddenly I realised that my children had grown up and it was interesting and joyful to talk to them. I stopped thinking only about the need to feed them or putting them to sleep. This routine no longer takes so much mental energy from me. There is a feeling of joy and tranquility, it is no longer exhausting, there is no need to make an effort or push yourself. Made my life easier? Sure. Now there is an opportunity to go on vacation alone, and for the first time I thought that I actually prefer to go with my children. It’s fantastic! Six months ago, such thoughts would cause shock in me.
Changes occur after each session. Somethings are easier, sometimes you need to work on issues for longer. Any changes pushing you to work on yourself but I really like the dynamics that occur in my life since I decided to join Riva’s workshops.
Thank you very much, Riva, for your work!
