I started my professional life as a passionate Biologist, got a PhD in the field of genetics, and became a professor/researcher at the University of Campinas in Brazil.

This is our inherited ancestral strength, and we all have it, even in the most dangerous and dysfunctional families. We all have a field of strong, loving, dignified ancestors who want to give us their strength, and see it passed on to the next generation. But it doesn't happen on its own, we must at some point courageously say "yes" to it. This meditation will help you to build this connection.It is based on the work of Bert Hellinger on Family Constellations and the use of beautiful sound of tuning forks..

Unresolved traumas, some going back two or three generations, can entangle us in feelings and situations that don't even belong to us. Family Constellations (FC) reveals hidden dynamics from our family's past, and helps us to heal and move forward in our lives. .
