Systemically, the much known and needed feminine empowerment gains a completely differentiated path, an internal path of reconciliation with our origin. Reconciliation born from healing the relationship with our mothers, reinstating our places in our original families.
By revisiting several women generations and the way they could express or not express themselves, we reencounter within ourselves the same pain of non-expression, we reencounter within us the same forces of love, serve, and joy: light and shadow.
Through this path, we turn our eyes to the “clothes” worn by our mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, … and so forth. We look to the world (almost every time) without these women, to their social impossibilities, to places of no speech, no expression, and, sometimes, to generations of women who continued serving in their private lives, or even to places which were “non-places”.
In Brazil, I have been working with thousands of women, that in the systemic constellations field recreate the stories of three great cultural matrixes, that have given birth to us: our indigenous ancestries, blacks – the black women who came enslaved to Brazil, and the Portuguese and other European peoples, besides, of course, the Japanese and immigrants from all over the world, that together have constituted the Brazilian nation.
These family histories of rupture, new beginnings, love and power relationships, exclusion and loving serve, are present in us.
Our love relationships, our place in the world, our relationship with the masculine, our social contribution, also originate in our systemic loyalties, and this multifaceted quilt (ethnic, cultural, social, systemic, emotional, relational, …) are core to our feminine identity.
What I propose is this systemic look about the construction of our feminine identity, our collective soul, in resonance with all our feminine lineage, and with our transgenerational family histories.
