What is Family Tree Healing?
As human beings, the basic community to which we belong
is our family, not only our parents and siblings but our
extended family, including grandparents and great-grandparents etc..
The manner in which the family unit communicates and interacts
depends, not only on the people living in the present, but also
on those who went before.
The legacies left behind by our ancestors include both useful and not
so useful ways of approaching life.
The useful legacy leaves us with a wisdom worth appreciating and integrating.
Distorted ways of thinking and acting (that may have evolved out of difficult
situations in the past) if unresolved, will need attention to prevent
or address dysfunctional patterns of behaviour in the present.
This is the work of Family Tree Healing
“Acknowledging the weakness of the past is an act of honesty and courage…..
it opens a new tomorrow for everyone”. (ITC Memory and Reconcilliation 1999)
