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”
