I first met the talented and entirely lovely Marine Sélénée at the shop while she was living and working in Beacon and our friendship + my appreciation for the power of her work and therapy has grown from there.
When Marine told me that her first book was being published by Hay House, I was beyond thrilled. Her work and expertise in Family Constellations therapy helps people heal from family wounds and find individual blocks rooted in the family system. Her clients are able to get to the root of their pain, in order to heal not only themselves but also the generations before and after them.
About the book:
Family Constellations begins with the premise: it did not start with me. Many of us become “entangled” with the unhappiness of those who came before us, unconsciously adopting destructive familial patterns of anxiety, depression, failure, and even illness and addiction in an attempt to “redo” the past and “fix” our families.
Affirmations and exercises punctuate every chapter, created to help the reader actively engage with and experience the benefits of Family Constellations.
Readers will learn how to:
Recognize family system patterns and disrupt them
Heal the inner child and parent the adult self
Release limiting beliefs and behaviors
Dissolve trauma bonds that entangle them with the past
Reconcile the past and the present, for a whole and integrated self
Arrive at a place of personal peace within the family system
Craft future-facing narratives that empower them to live authentically
About Marine Sélénée:
A French native, Marine was born in Brittany and raised in Paris. After studying psychology and communications in Paris, she moved to Miami. There one of her mentors, Michelle Blechner, introduced her to Family Constellations Therapy. She discovered the transformative nature of this healing practice—which would drive her path forward.
Marine then moved to New York City to dive into her Family Constellations practice. After immersing herself into the process with Mark Wolynn in Miami, she studied the method under Suzi Tucker at the Bert Hellinger Institute, before opening her own practice in New York.
Through Marine’s own healing journey she realized the unique power of the Family Constellations Method. Discovering this approach revealed the missing link she was searching for in traditional therapy: the ability to get to the root of the wound in order to understand, heal, own the past and move forward.
Marine’s unique approach to Family Constellations Method helps people heal from family wounds and find individual blocks rooted in the family system. This awareness unleashes freedom in the present.
