Dan Booth Cohen

Dr. Dan Booth Cohen uses the Systemic Family Constellations approach to foster trans-generational healing for individuals, families and large group systems. Family Constellations are an experiential process that allow anyone to perceive the effects of morphogenetic fields that link members of family systems across distances of space and time. Dr. Cohen is one of the United States most experienced practitioners of this method. He is author of I Carry Your Heart in My Heart: Family Constellations in Prison and numerous scholarly articles and book chapters. His website is www.HiddenSolution.com.

Friday/Saturday Breakout Sessions:

B6 Revisiting Slavery’s Legacy: What Would Healing Look Like?

Thomas Norman DeWolf was astounded to discover that he was descended from the most powerful slave-trading family in US history. When Senator James DeWolf of Rhode Island died, he was reportedly the second richest man in America. Belvie Rooks stood in an Elmina slave dungeon in Ghana, trying to imagine what reaching the “door of no return” must have felt like for an enslaved African ancestor. This session will include Dr. Dan Booth Cohen leading an experiential Systemic Family Constellation exercise. This will encourage participants to perceive the morphogenetic resonance with victim and perpetrator energies that reside in their family of origin and, by extension, themselves. Acknowledging the depths of the trans-generational wounds we all carry allows for deeper dialogue and the possibility healing and of reconciliation. Dr. Cohen is author of I Carry Your Heart in My Heart.
