How can we bypass personal biases to create systemic change? One approach is to agree to become impersonal “representatives” of particular aspects of a problem- and then focus on the relationships between the representatives rather than their viewpoints. For example, if we are discussing “the best form of government,” we might have one person represent democracy, another autocracy, another socialism, and another “the government of the future.” Rather than participants debating ideas about these forms (we’ve had plenty of that!), they are asked to attend to sensations in their body and their feelings towards other representatives- working out complex issues “relationally” and within the safety of a role distinguished from their person. Constellation Work has been using this method successfully for years to heal ancestral wounding. Let’s try it to explore our group purpose, or whatever issue seems to be the hot button of the day when we meet in July.
