In this new work, Jan Crawford first pays homage to her teacher and mentor, Bert Hellinger and to Hellinger facilitators, including Suzi Tucker and her Guided Learning in New York City. Like many who feel disconnected with their families, Crawford examines her own family history before she attempts to understand, forgive and reconcile. Crawford comes full circle in her relationships with her family and that constellation work itself involves stepping into a circle to heal one’s life.
“An intensely personal and brilliantly honest documentation of a large life lived on the path of reconciliation and healing.” –Hunter Beaumont, PhD, Chair, International Systemic Constellation Association
“Janice Crawford’s unwavering honesty and self-insight give the reader the opportunity to watch a beautiful flower blossom, petal by tender petal.” –Jean Smith, author of Now: The Art of Being Truly Present
“It would be only clinically true to say that this book is about trauma. It is also about how a person’s spiritual and psychological paths may be in part an attempt to detour around the very resolutions that will bring the peace and freedom they seek. And it is about the joy when one does not.” –Sandra Weinberg, Co-Founder, New York Insight Meditation Society
