Sophie Hellinger

Vita Sophie

Since 2018 Sophie Hellinger has been the sole, leading representative of Original Hellinger Familienstellen. Thousands of participants worldwide attended her seminars and congresses. As the motor of the spiritual development of Familienstellen, she has helped countless people to a happier, healthier and more successful life.

Before Sophie Hellinger met Bert Hellinger and his Familienstellen more than twenty years ago, she had completed intensive training in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). For many years she managed a health centre abroad for these alternative healing methods and a seminar house with an attached hotel. In addition, Sophie Hellinger was trained in various types of meditation and alternative healing methods. Previously, she was a successful entrepreneur in the real estate and property development business. 

For many years, Sophie Hellinger researched ways to improve the mental and physical health and development of human beings and to lead them as a spiritual being to a happy and fulfilled life. Only when she had discovered Familienstellen by Bert Hellinger, she had reached the goal of her search. In 1999, with the consent of Bert Hellinger, she founded the HellingerSchule®, where she still offers her very special training as a family constellation facilitator, including Cosmic Power®.

After her marriage to Bert Hellinger in 2002, Sophie Hellinger and Bert Hellinger further developed Familiensellen into Original Hellinger Familienstellen, which today is taught, demonstrated and offered exclusively by the HellingerSchule® worldwide. From that time on Sophie Hellinger was also active and present as an equal partner at the side of Bert Hellinger in all his seminars and performances.

Sophie Hellinger also developed the energy method Cosmic Power®, which is taught and practiced worldwide. In her and Bert Hellinger's opinion, this perception and breathing technique provides the basis for the Original Hellinger® Familienstellen, which requires a special technique of perception.

In addition, Sophie Hellinger has made a name for herself as an author of books. Her works have been translated into several languages and are also available in South America and China, for example.

In 2018 Bert Hellinger retired from public life and handed over his entire work to his wife Sophie Hellinger.

Due to the many requests, which increased from year to year, regarding a training at the source to become a Hellinger Family Constellator, Sophie Hellinger founded the Hellinger®schule. In this school, students are taught the basic laws of life discovered by Bert Hellinger, the "Orders of Love" and today's Original Hellinger® Family Constellation. The curriculum is taught empirically in seminars, talks, lectures and constellations for all necessary life situations. Practice and supervision seminars complete the offer.


Bert Hellinger hands over all his activities to his wife Sophie Hellinger

In 2018, at the age of 92, Bert Hellinger retired from public life and passed on his work, all his responsibilities and his shares in the joint company to his wife Sophie. In December 2018, he had the following message read out at the congress "The DNA of Family Constellation" in Sao Paulo, Brazil, presided over by Sophie Hellinger:

“It is with great joy and gratitude that I look upon all of you from a distance of more than 10,000 kilometers who are participating in this congress. So many of you have come a long way to dedicate yourselves completely Original Hellinger® Familienstellen during these days of the 1st Congress in Brazil. This touches me deeply.

For me, Latin America is the most advanced part of our world in the spiritual field. Nowhere else has Familienstellen become established in such a large and impressive way. In Brazil, Familienstellen was recognized by the government this year as an alternative healing method. It is also used as Systemic Law in the courts of justice. What a wonderful success.

For me there are several changes. I have transferred my work and all my tasks as well as my shares in our joint company to my wife Sophie. For many years we have together developed Familienstellen into Neues Familienstellen and carried it into the world. But now the time of retreat has come for me. I have written my autobiography to say goodbye. This book is my last legacy, after that I will not write any more new books.

I thank my wife Sophie for being willing to take on the great task of spreading and developing the Original Hellinger Familienstellen on her own. It is a heavy burden, which she has taken on out of love for me, for people and out of her responsibility for Original Hellinger® Familienstellen as her purpose in life. In her hands is also the writing of new books.

I know that Sophie will take Familienstellen into new dimensions, for the benefit of all people in the world. Only she is able to take on this task and prepare the way for everyone. For a long time now, I was no longer the one who was leading, but I followed her. From now on I am with you in the field, in thoughts and in conversations as well. It is a grace that I am still capable of this at my high age of 93 years in a few days.

It makes me happy to see what great fruits my insights and my work have brought and will bring worldwide. Rest assured that you are in good hands with Sophie. I could not do better. Be it in Familienstellen, Systemic Education, Systemic Law or Cosmic Power®.

So I call out to you all in deep connectedness: Stay on the path and do not stop, so that in your further life as before you will be able to distinguish the original from the copy.

Yours, Bert Hellinger”
