ABOUT FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS
What are Family & Systemic Constellations?
Developed by German psychotherapist Bert Hellinger in the 1990's, Family Constellations as we know and practice it today 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, "the field" or “work field”. This energy field is where the work takes place. In a virtual setting we 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 (our family system). What often is missing is the awareness of these connections, which we are constantly building through this work.
How does traditional Family & Systemic Constellation work occur practically and what is there to expect?
A person who has a specific issue they want to look at (so-called "seeker") 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 "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 (what Bert Helling calls "movements of the soul"). 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 have their own constellation set up in order to attend. It is important to note that this work is not only energy work but soul work and therefore goes very deeply. It therefore does not live or function in the head but in the soul/the inside. In German we also call Constellation work and similar modalities "Seelenarbeit" ("soul work").
TESTIMONIALS & EXPERIENCES
ABOUT LUISA MUHR
Luisa Muhr is a New-York-based artist and healer, specializing in Family & Systemic Constellations, originally from Vienna (Austria), with Hungarian and Constantinople-Greek roots. As the descendant of her great-grandfather, a Holocaust survivor, Constellation work has always played an integral part in Muhr’s life.
She was first introduced to Family Constellations, Guided Imagery work (Katathym-imaginative Psychotherapy), and Astrology as a young child through her mother and has been surrounded and shaped by them since.
Muhr was surrounded by Constellation work on a monthly basis starting at the age of 9 in her childhood home in Austria. By the time she turned 14 she actively started to participate in Constellation workshops facilitated by her later mentor, Dr. Peter Orban, one of Germany's most prominent Family Constellations facilitators who was one of Bert Hellinger's early students. Muhr finally completed her Family & Systemic Constellations certification training program through Dr. Orban. Inspired by her mentor, Muhr’s Constellation work can also include a large variety of archetypes (rooted in Carl Jung's teachings). As a Family & Systemic Constellations Practitioner Muhr works and has been working at the following healing centers in New York City: MINKA Brooklyn, Balance Arts Center (Midtown Manhattan), Ohm Center (Upper East Side) and at Maha Rose (Brooklyn).
Muhr is also certified Deep Listening® practitioner (after Pauline Oliveros by the Center For Deep Listening), combining art and healing work in a profound and fully embodied way.
In March 2020 she 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 now been postponed to Fall 2021. Muhr has been featured in multiple podcasts and interviews to help to spread this very important work.
During the pandemic she has been developing and shaping a virtual Constellations platform to continuously provide healing for people around the world. Muhr is holding regular workshops on a large variety of platforms and feels strongly about the importance of offering healing space to diverse marginalized groups of people.
Apart from her work as a Constellations facilitator and coach Muhr is a multi- and interdisciplinary creator and performer, specializing in vocal, movement, performance, installation, sound art, and experimental theater. She 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). Muhr has been featured on some of New York's highly acclaimed stages and venues and tirelessly keeps creating performance work.
She deeply believes in the power of different types of energy Field Work and that healing happens through multiple shapes, forms, and lenses, the arts being one of them, Constellation work another.

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.

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.
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.
Since the pandemic I have mostly been working via video call. Please contact me if you have questions about one-on-one in-person sessions.
Please also note that there is a 24-hour cancellation policy.
