501. The Importance of Shadow Constellations : Nir Esterman

Shadow Constellations combine the healing potential of both Family Constellations and Shadow Work, connecting Intergenerational Healing with Self-Parts Integration in novel ways.

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” C.G. Jung

 The Shadow is the realm of the unconscious into which we put what we repress and deny, what we disown and can’t acknowledge. The Shadow is ‘born’ to the family we are born into and into the culture(s) we are brought up in.

Embodied shadow and constellations trainer Nir joins Mark Walsh to talk projections, marriage, transference, trauma, the victim triangle, Bert Hellinger, “soul”, cultural trauma, Poland, inter/generational resourcing, gurus, and power.

A deep wonderful conservation.
