Family Constellations

We will come together to offer this online course through Zoom. This unique and profound method of working online has been developed organically, with an awareness of being guided each step of the way.

In constellation work you are invited to enter a “Knowing Field” - an energetic field where everything that has been created belongs and has a place. The ‘field’ is a place, where that which has been ex-cluded can be brought back together again, opening the channels so love can flow.

A broader image unfolds in the work as you see how people relate to each other while seen and unseen dynamics come to light. These dynamics are often guided by, what we call in systemic work, the principles of relationship.

The way we belong in our family systems become very clear, often we are connected by hidden rules, by blind love and binding loyalties. We can appreciate and honour the wise adaptations of our personalities that have helped us to cope and to survive thus far so life could flow on. Life does flow on, but often at quite a cost. And at the same time something happens to the flow of love!

While we journey in constellation in this way, looking through the lens of loving, inclusive compassion, we learn, without judgement, what happens when hearts and souls have had to close.

We see how it is we belong in the contexts we inhabit and the different loyalties between which we are divided. We find innocence & guilt in the limitations of different levels of conscience.

Reconciliation becomes possible between victims and perpetrators in the very act of being truly seen.

We connect with the importance of our sense of place and our familial bonds when everything and everyone is in the right place.
We see the consequences of how ‘blind love’ operates through compensation and identifica-tion within a family system through the open heartedness of an innocent child,

The constellation process offers a possibility to find a new understanding, a different image which can lead to a ‘Yes’ to the gift of life as it has come down to us. Respecting the full price it cost your ancestors to pass it on to us and acknowledging the full price we paid to receive it.

Thank you for the gift of life!

Our intention:

  • That this course will enable you to experience phenomenologically and learn cognitively the principles and fundamentals of systemic family constellation work.
  • That while your understanding expands you will start to think in a systemic way and see through a systemic lens, as you view the individual within a larger context. It can have a deeply profound effect when you notice and feel what influences the dynamics within a family system.
  • That in the continuum, you experience personal growth and healing through all the ‘different’ levels of learning offered during this course.
  • We hope that you will learn what moves the Soul as you become more familiar with the grammar and language of the personality within the family system. And then start the process of translating it all into the language of the Soul.
  • During our time together we will explore the unconscious intergenerational dynamics that operate in our very sacred families. We will learn how the effects of loss, trauma and exclusion are transmitted intergenerationally, and see how these have been experienced within our personal and cultural histories.
  • We will also experience the great joy of connection - to be separate and connected.
  • As we deepen into presence we will explore our understanding of ‘the field’ which unfolds in constellation work, and see what happens when we pay attention and listen to the truth of experience coming through the body.
  • We will learn to be guided by the heart and become aware of the subtle movements of the soul. The movement from the past is into alignment with the present and agreement with all that ‘is’ just as we are, just as it is.

Annie Cariapa (PTSTA Psychotherapy), BA Psy(Hons)

Annie is the founder of Spanda. She has trained with Bert Hellinger in Bad Reichenhall and holds a Hellinger Sciencia diploma in Family Constellation & Movement of the Spirit Mind. Annie has further gathered her training in Cloister Bernreid, Germany over several years with Hunter Beaumont and multiple senior faculty. She has also had intensive trainings with Stephan Hausner in Germany. Annie continues to learn and develop cutting edge work in Family System Constellations and neuroscience. She has also developed a unique model of working online.

Annie has been offering Family Constellation workshops In India over the past 11 years.

Annie has worked in the field of counselling & psychotherapy for the past 20 years.

She uses an integrated approach, weaving together her expertise in Transactional Analysis (TA), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Systemic constellation, Hypnotherapy, Body work, an of neuroscience and related modalities in the process of developing wellness, harmony and balance. Her work reflects an integrated, organic, systemic and spiritual approach.

Her workshop ‘Healing Your Inner Child & Living in the Power of Now’ has gained significant interest since 2012, as it continues to integrate the systemic lens and offers a space to grow an inner resilience.

Annie says, "My work has been deeply influenced, not only by my life and work experiences, but also by my years as a farmer practicing sustainable organic farming. Exploring the analogy, sustainable farming is about finding a balance and about working with both what is healthy and unhealthy, with growth promoters and growth retardants - with life as it is.

The fruit of this way of living is that of flowing with natural energies and of being in harmony. I believe that balance and centredness within our being can only be achieved by bringing harmony to the indivisible body, mind and soul that is guided by a greater power.”

Holistic wellness and healing takes place when we bring back the balance, transcending our entangle-ments and moving beyond blame to an agreement with life as it is.”


My gratitude to Bert Hellinger for Hellinger Sciencia, the scientia universalis, which is the gift that goes far beyond the self. In this work in India, we have received the personal blessings of Bert and Sophie Hellinger and we continue to feel supported by what has been passed on.

My deep gratitude to Colette for being so supportive and generous in every way. I am glad to have the support of your wisdom and knowledge.

I have been blessed by many wonderful teachers & students in my life. Thank you.

With humility, we all play a part in the emerging Constellation work in India.
