A new perspective of healing is presented in this interesting book on Family Constellations: It will expand the readers vision beyond the scope of healing as an individual and personal matter, to one that spans generations in its scope, crosses racial and cultural barriers and sheds new light on the energetics involved in relationships between victims and perpetrators, be that regimes, wars, incest and sexual abuse or trauma as a result of crime. The Orders of Love describe a natural hierarchy that has been observed in the practice of Family Constellations: There is a distinct order that states who belongs, and who does not belong to not only a family system, but also to groups and nations. On working with individuals, we observe that each of us has three levels of conscience. First, the conscience we have as individuals, dictating to us what is right and wrong, our responsibilities and our reactions to certain conditions. Secondly, we also belong to the collective conscience of our biological family, and the connections and influence of family conscience can span many generations.
