Constellation-Rituals - find what works…!

Shaman Ritual work in Combination with systemic Shamanic Constellation-Rituals

This new therapy form, which arose from Bert Hellinger’s “Familienstellen” and Shamanic Processing in Rituals, has established itself over the years as my most effective technique. I created a name for it and called it Constellation-Rituals.

Bert Hellinger’s insight recognizing the family as the root of our existence exposes the effects of repressed or forgotten destiny of some ancestral family members transferred on their descendants, also partners or other family members.

It is a very effective merging of Systemic-Work and the real life application of basic Shamanist tradition and condensed wisdom of life.

One could also refer to the Constellation-Rituals as Shamanic-Systemic-Rituals in Constellations. Although the term “Shamanism” has in the meantime unfortunately seduced the imagination with strange lofty fantasies and been associated with excesses, I have found no nourishment for these in my contact with and approach toward humanity. On the contrary, I consider it a huge lifetime accomplishment when people can feel good about coming down to earth, while they are connected to beyond.

Constellation-Rituals serve as

Or also as

Or quite important

“Finding what works…!“

Constellation-Rituals is about accumulating the strength to find everything that really belongs to us, to recognize things the way they are, and then to harmoniously integrate it in the whole system. That gathers one’s own strength in a tranquil life force, turned toward love and respect.

“Only that which we love sets us free!”

Bert Hellinger

In this work it is clear to see how common attitudes such as: wanting to have everything under control, disturbing separation and rejection, being open or secretive, and wanting to fight, mostly lead to loss or failure.

“A reasonable person is lead by destiny - a stubborn one is dragged by destiny! ”


In Constellation-Rituals work we experience a phenomenon, which Dr. Albrecht Mahr calls “The knowing field”. It is a deep involuntary connectedness to all of our relatives, those near in our own family, those further away in our homeland; one’s own religion, skin colour and common basic values. More remote systems to which we also belong include animals, plants, stones and spirits, also the whole earth and the entire universe. 

In Constellation-Rituals one clearly experiences that powers from the invisible world affect and profoundly design our lives. Good and evil influences have this powerful impact, simply because they exist! Regardless whether we are aware of them or not or whether we recognize or reject them.
During the Constellation-work the destiny of our departed ancestors, the ignored or forgotten ones becomes recognisable as our decisive lifetime means of subsistence. To reach up into this dimension requires the full grandeur of humanity – and who has that simply at their fingertips!

The Shamanic world concept views and recognizes the neediness and limits of human beings as an acknowledged natural basic state. Equally the ancient basic human need and aim to have a good place in the world we live. Consequently, one looks to the Shamanic Constellation-Rituals for helpful, empowering and fulfilling strength in life, which quite naturally belongs to us and which we may obviously draw on.

These helping powers can be other people, qualities, or experiences of the spirit, body and soul. Connecting oneself with these powers in a deep conscious ritual can lead to a sustaining support in our life.

“Die Heilung kommt von außerhalb…”
(Healing comes from outside of us…)

Daan van Kampenhout

So it is that the Shamanic Constellation-Rituals serve a continuous power acquisition from the vast “universal power supply” of the All-Embracing-Being. Insight into one’s own situation and strengthening of the person are coupled by the extension of the traditional Constellation-work with the Shamanic approach and provide a lasting solution.

As my many names show, all sorts of things flow together within me.

Like the origin of my ancestors as well: German, French and Rumanian. They were commoners and noblemen with their various different mentalities and religions. I may therefore call upon a considerable potential from helpful ancestors: Visionaries, successful entrepreneurs, remedy-persons, dreamers, healers, and artists, as well as foresters, fishermen and customs-officials.

To this end I can apply my useful knowledge as an artist in the fine arts, as a Certified Master of N.L.P. (Neuro-Linguistic-Programming, involving the behaviour resulting from the interface of brain, language and body) and Ericksonian Hypnosis (FACTICITY–Trainings/ Ragini Elisabeth Michaels), as Constellation-Facilitator(Bert Hellinger) and those of the Shaman Ritual Work instruction (my grandma Leontine Schwarz, Sobonfu Some, Malidoma Some and last but not least Daan van Kampenhout). Not to mention those capabilities from my years of practice in individual sessions and various seminars. My experience also includes Management-Training, teaching respectful communication basics, and numerous Constellation forms and rituals. My experience also includes those from my personal spiritual journey in India (OSHO) and my then enriched and matured return to my roots.

Special thanks for all the friendship, initiative, support and your loving and generous sharing with me, Sneh Victoria Schnabel, Francesca Mason Boring/USA, Daan van Kampenhout and Uncle Less Kuloloio/ Hawai.

I thank my friend Sneh Victoria Schnabel for pretty much from the beginning. Through her having gotten to know Bert Hellinger`s work, and also the work of Daan van Kampenhout. There I found precious insights and the appropriate and fitting confirmation to my Shamanic Constellation-Rituals.

Both approaches are now connected in my Constellation-Rituals. A good half a century has given me abundant and profound riches. It will be a pleasure for me to share them with you!
