I am fond of animals. Because I care for them, I don’t eat meat since I am 16 years old. Dairy I only take from biological farms (and yes, I know even that is not entirely fair).

Family constellations is a method in which the relationships and hidden dynamics between family members are made visible. And even more than making it visible is that a constellation works towards a healing resolution. That is the point where a new, more natural and healing balance for the whole system is found.

From various traditions, including shamanic traditions, anthroposophy and Hinduism, we know the concept of the human being consisting of several bodies and not just a physical body.
Each tradition has its own concept about the physical, gross material, and subtle or energetic bodies.
Apart from the physical body, we cannot see those other bodies with our well-known senses. We can observe these energetic bodies, for example, with the help of Systemic Ritual or Shamanic journeys.
