Symptoms of Illness - friend or enemy?

During the constellations we often experience, that symptoms of illness are not encountering us as enemies. Obviously, they seem to demonstrate, that something in our body has lost its balance and is corresponding to an emotional imbalance. The fear that can be caused by physical symptoms gets less, when we start to understand their reasons. Our body may start healing, when we get in touch with our injured parts, which we had to split off in order to survive.

This workshop offers the possibility to connect symptoms of illness consciously to their emotional reasons.
