Easter is around the corner and however you celebrate it, in the Christian or the ancient pagan way – it is always about death and rebirth, about going into the underworld, being transformed and rise renewed. It is about the new life of spring after a period of withdrawal and apparent stagnation which we do have in many countries during winter.
And with this Easter is a symbol for our life and it reminds us that life is never just spring or winter, but it a constant change from one season to the other. Death and rebirth are part of our life. Sometimes death makes us despair and lose ground totally, sometimes there are little and insignificant “deaths” and we may not be even aware of them. Everything we have to let go of is a little like dying ourselves. Sometimes it is easy to let go and sometimes it is hard and nearly seems impossible. And we fight against it and we do not want to let go and we try everything to hold on to an old story, a person we lost, an outworn pattern, our youth, our health etc. And the more we fight, the more we suffer – most of the time.
So Easter, as symbol of death and resurrection, has a message for all of us. If we let go, if we “surrender”, if we consent to the loss or death of something or someone, if we accept the inevitable – we are able to walk through a gate that leads us to a new beginning, to a rebirth and to resurrection.
This is what I am allowed to witness with many of my clients. The moment of consent and agreement is the crucial moment of the beginning of a new life. And though I do my work for several years now, I am still amazed how little it takes for many people to get there.
So may this Easter remind all of you that death (in all its different forms and faces) is never the end but the beginning of something new, something that we can co-create, something that depends on our own willingness to “respond to life’s questions”, as Victor E. Frankl would say.
In this spirit I am wishing all of you a Happy Easter!
The next events of Family Constellations Malta in April and May will be:
April 7/8 (Saturday/Sunday) “Woman, partner, mother”. This is a special workshop for women who find it challenging to unite the different roles of being woman and being (or not) being partner/wife and mother. Booking closes on Wednesday April 4th.
April 27 (Friday evening) “Everything you ever wanted to know about Family Constellations”. This is a free evening for people who want to know more about my work, the basics of constellations, about the orders of love and have the opportunity to ask all questions they have regarding this work.
April 29 (Sunday): Family Constellation Day “New Horizons” – still spaces for representatives available
May 4 (Friday Evening) “The orders of helping” This is a special evening seminar for people in helping professions (social workers, therapists, psychologists etc). We will explore what helping really is, what is required of a helper, what can be possible reasons for burnout or frustration. As there are the “Orders of love” on the basis of the constellation work, there are also the “Orders of helping”. Knowing about them can change the life and the work of a “helper” significantly.
May 12/13 (Saturday/Sunday) “My father and I”. This is a special workshop and unique opportunity for all who want to work on the relationship with their father, which has a big influence on our own life (with regard to relationships, profession, health).
If you want to know more about these events please use this link EVENTS or get in touch with me.
The next availability for doing a “Own constellation” is on July 8th. This will also be the last constellation day before summer. If you wish to do your “Own constellation” before summer but July 8th is not possible for your, please get in touch with me. I am always happy to organize constellation evenings in this case.
As most of you know I will be moving to UK for good in July. I am planning to come back every 2-3 months to continue my work here in Malta. At the moment I am looking for a space where I can hold my constellation days/workshops. Prices are rising in Malta as crazy and I would like to keep my prices as low as possible. So if anyone of you has (or knows someone who has) a private space big enough for 12-16 people and is open to offer this space once every 3 months roundabout, this would be magnificent. In this case please get in touch with me.
Thank you all for your interest in the constellation work and your support and trust throughout the last 2 years.
Wishing you again a HAPPY EASTER
