I've been certified through Rosalba Stocco's Family Constellations 2-year Training Program, and have been facilitating this work in groups and individually for over 6 years.
I am from Western European ancestors, some of them who were settlers and pioneers who came to the States and Canada for a better life. A couple of men in our family married African-descent women. According to my DNA I have 1% Sub-Saharan African in my lineage. I honour both the men and the women who had the courage to love despite serious racial prejudice and segregation. I also see the ancestors who hurt others, especially First Nations Peoples on Turtle Island and Slaves in the U.S., so I can live a privileged life.
I hold them in my heart as a reminder of the importance of making a contribution towards mending and making the world a more fair and respectful place.
I see my ancestors and I bow, knowing they shaped me in many ways and I wouldn't be here without them.
