ABOUT FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS

"What we do in this work is initiating movement." -- Luisa Muhr

I empower people who want to get a deeper understanding of their own patterns, are curious about their family background, and who currently feel stuck in life, by offering them guidance through ancestral healing movements.

What are Family & Systemic Constellations?

Developed by German psychotherapist Bert Hellinger in the 1990's, Family Constellations is an alternative form of therapy work. It involves a group of people who come together, seated in a circle, offering their awareness and presence and thus creating a, what Constellations Practitioners call, “work field”. It is an energy field and is where the work takes place. In a virtual setting we will explore this field (and its multitudes) in new dimensions.

The basic principle of Family Constellations is based on the idea that certain issues and patterns we encounter in our daily lives (either on the surface or in the subconscious) are always somehow connected to and deeply rooted in our ancestry. What often is missing is the awareness of these connections.



How does traditional Family & Systemic Constellation work practically occur?

A person who has a specific issue they want to look at presents a question to the facilitator who will guide a process of setting up other participants from the circle (so-called "representatives") in the center of the circle (the “work field”) who then will start following their impulses.

This will take place in such a way that it offers insight into the hidden dynamics at play, eventually leading to significant healing movements. The process is intuitive, dogma-free, and helps people connect with their own authenticity, inner wisdom, and soul force that build the foundation of change.
 
Participants can either do their own constellation or function as representatives in other people's constellations. It is highly encouraged to participate either way when attending a workshop but no one is required to do a constellation in order to attend. It is important to note that this work goes very deeply and does not live or function in the head but in the soul/the inside. In German it is called "Seelenarbeit" ("soul work").​

ABOUT LUISA MUHR

Luisa Muhr is a New-York-based artist and Family & Systemic Constellations Coach/Facilitator, originally from Vienna, Austria.
 
She was first introduced to Family Constellations and Astrology at a very early age and has been exposed to and shaped by both since. Luisa did her training back in Europe with one of Germany's most prominent Family Constellations Facilitators, Dr. Peter Orban, who was one of Bert Hellinger's early students. Inspired by her mentor, her Constellation work can also include archetypes (rooted in Carl Jung's teachings). She currently works as a Family & Systemic Constellations Practitioner at MINKA Brooklyn, Balance Arts Center (Midtown), Ohm Center (Upper East Side), and at Maha Rose (Brooklyn).

In March 2020 Luisa was scheduled to be a panelist and presenter at University of Michigan, discussing the healing aspects of "field work" in the arts/performance practice and in Family Constellation work, which due to the COVID-19 pandemic has been postponed to early 2021.

Apart from her work as a Constellations Facilitator and Coach Luisa is a multi- and interdisciplinary performer and theater-maker, specializing in vocal, movement, performance, sound, and installation art. Luisa is the co-founder and artistic director of the performing arts company FENGARI Works and runs New York's leading interdisciplinary womxn and non-binary artists series Women Between Arts  (at The New School Glassbox Theater).


 

OFFERINGS & SERVICES

FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS WORKSHOPS

I offer regular Family and Systemic Constellations Workshops in New York City and Brooklyn. Participants can bring in questions related to any field: family, relationships, work/career, etc. Although these workshops take place in a group setting, they are highly confidential. Participants can either do their own constellation or simply function as representatives in other people's constellations. It is highly encouraged to participate either way when attending a workshop but no one is required to do a constellation in order to attend.

 

If you are unsure if you want to do your own constellation, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.

 

This work goes very deep and does not live or function in the head but in the soul. In German we call it "Seelenarbeit" ("soul work"). 

To register for an upcoming workshop, either as someone who would like to do a constellation or as a representative, please click on "Register" below for the next available date. Space is limited to 18 people, so please RSVP at your earliest convenience in order to secure your spot.

I am looking forward to working with you.

To register for my next workshop or event, please click below.

Please note that during the COVID-19 epidemic most work is now being offered via video call.
I will be offering additional live streams, Zoom workshops, and info sessions.

ONE-ON-ONE

I also offer private sessions for individuals or couples. One-on-one systemic coaching sessions are a great way to work with me in a private setting.

 

It is usually recommended to attend a Family Constellations (group) workshop first if you are new to the work. That being said, if you feel strongly about wanting to do an individual session, the one-on-one format might be just right for you, even if you are not familiar with Constellation work. 


I usually either see my clients at my home studio or at one of the healing centers where I facilitate. I am also willing to travel to my clients or work via video call. During the pandemic all sessions take place via video call.

Please note that there is a 24-hour cancellation policy.


My pricing is $85-140 sliding scale for a one-hour private session for one person or $125-190 for couples. The price, which you decide, depends on your financial needs and experience after the session.

Please note: During the COVID-19 pandemic I have lowered my sliding scale price.  ***As of September 2020 private one-on-one sessions are now $75-140, couple sessions to $110-190.
