About this Event

Please find more information on Family & Systemic Constellations with Luisa Muhr here:

"Family and Systemic Constellation work is initiating movement deep within the soul. This movement then translates to the practical world."

"I empower people who currently feel stuck and seek change, who want to get a deeper understanding of their own social patterns, and are curious about their origins,,by guiding them through healing movements,,deeply rooted in their family system."

-- Luisa Muhr

What is Family & Systemic Constellation work?

Developed by German psychotherapist Bert Hellinger in the 1990's, Family Constellations is an alternative form of therapy work. With its roots in Zulu traditions, Psychotherapy, Psychodrama, Family Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Virgina Satir's "Sculptures", Primal Therapy, Hypnotherapy, and more, this work in its current incarnation, was first and foremost developed to heal Holocaust trauma in Central and Eastern Europe, but eventually spread across the world and has been applied to pretty much any type of issues and systemic wounds. Constellation work 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.

What to expect?

We will break some patterns that have made us feel stuck and focus on some in-depth healing through Family & Systemic Constellations.

If you intend to have your own Constellation set up, please bring any major personal issue that you are currently dealing with (doesn't have to be connected to a family issue).

There is no guarantee that you will get to have your issue be worked on. One spot will be reserved for one of Muhr's current Constellations trainees , the other will be decided via a drawing system, which leaves the decision of who gets to work up to the energy work field.

Please note that no matter if you get to work on your own issue or are participating in the Constellation of someone else, the healing is usually profound for ALL participants in the room. Someone else's issue could speak directly to an issue in your own system, and -- if you are conscious of it or not --usually does.

About the Facilitator:

Luisa Muhr is a New-York-based interdisciplinary artist and healing arts practitioner, specializing in Family & Systemic Constellations. She is originally from Vienna (Austria), with Hungarian and Anatolian-Greek roots. As the descendant of her great-grandfather, a Holocaust survivor, Constellation work has always played an integral part in Muhr’s life.

With now more than 19 years of experience in Family and Systemic Constellations, 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 shaped by all of these modalities since.

Constellation work was a part of Muhr's life on a monthly to bi-monthly basis, starting when she was 9 years old in her childhood home in Austria, where her mother to this day organizes Constellations workshops. By the time Muhr turned 14 she actively started to participate in Constellations workshops, which were facilitated by her later mentor, Dr. Peter Orban, one of Germany's most prominent Family Constellations facilitators, who was also one of Bert Hellinger's early students. This eventually lead to Muhr completing her Family & Systemic Constellations certification training program with 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 and Systemic Constellations practitioner she currently works and has worked at OHM Center, MINKA Brooklyn, Balance Arts Center, Maha Rose (all in New York), and Kripalu Center (Massachusetts). Muhr has also been featured on Kimberly Ann Johnson’s renowned "Sex, Birth, Trauma" podcast, amongst others.

Additionally, Muhr is a certified Deep Listening® practitioner (after experimental composer and pioneer Pauline Oliveros, by the Center For Deep Listening), combining art and healing work in a profound and fully embodied way.

During the early period of the COVID-19 pandemic Muhr started to develop and shape a virtual Constellations platform to continuously provide healing for people around the world, as well as offer her yearly Constellations Training Program. 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.

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 had to be cancelled.

Apart from her work as a healing arts practitioner Muhr is a multi- and interdisciplinary creator and performer, specializing in vocal, movement, performance, installation, and sound art, as well as experimental theater. She also 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 most highly acclaimed stages and venues and tirelessly keeps creating new 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.

This workshop will be attended by Muhr's current Family Constellations Training cohort, as part of their training. The structure of and the agreement for the workshop are exactly the same as any other.

Luisa also offers one-on-one sessions at a sliding scale rate of $110-280.
