Testimonials from Colleagues in the Constellation Field:
Tanja Meyburgh has successfully nurtured the growth of family systems constellations and systemic thinking in South Africa and beyond. An accomplished trainer, facilitator of family constellations, Tanja midwifed the first African Experience on Systemic Constellation in South Africa which attracted facilitators from throughout the globe while showcasing the advancement of systemic constellation work in South Africa. Beyond the expansive exposure to constellation work, the Conference included innovations such as committing to the planting of a tree for each participant who flew to participate to balance the carbon footprint.
Tanja has held space for the significant influence of Zulu cosmology in the development of Hellinger’s work. Her respect for the many faces of destiny, informed by her own belonging to the land of South Africa and its difficult history, and her respectful interface with clients, students and teachers from all junctions of her country are inspiring. Her articles included on her website are insightful and her contributions to The Knowing Field (the international professional journal on systems constellation work: www.theknowingfield.com) have been a contribution to the community of facilitators worldwide.
As a professional therapist, Tanja’s experience and competence are well established. Her more recent innovations include expanding the intersection of movement and constellation work, encouraging one form of helpful integration of the work.
As a human being, her own grounded love of family give her personal expertise and heart’s commitment to furthering the ability of fellow travelers to increase the flow of love within their own family systems and find peace with the wounds of the past which have created systemic limitations within their own system.
In whatever capacity, if you have opportunity to connect with Tanja Meyburgh or her work, you will find yourself enriched and grateful.

What African Constellations Graduates have to say about the training:
“The training was enriching, profound and life-changing both from a personal
and professional perspective. The material presented was theoretically and
experientially well-grounded and each trainer brought his/ her years of work
experience, observation and insights to the teaching. I felt deeply involved
and connected throughout the process- in mind, body and in soul – and
welcomed the invitation to follow my heart’s promptings to integrate
constellations teachings into my own clinical practice.”

– Niall, Traditional Healer: Cape Town
“I have thoroughly enjoyed the facilitator training as I love this work and its capacity to really amplify dynamics so the feeling world can be witnessed more clearly. I have worked with Tanja for about 7 years as a private client and really love the way she holds space in such a measured clear way so that there is time to see and assimilate the process. I have found the training very thorough and expansive as there is encouragement to explore and experience different facilitators so one can get a feel for the work in different ways. I am looking forward to incorporating the training into my working world and will be forever grateful for the work done in my own family system.”
– Ayla, Midwife: Cape Town
“It is so easy to get stuck in, blinded and paralysed by the big and small dramas of life. Training with African Constellations (especially Tanja Meyburgh) has shown me possibilities to step out of the drama, see what is relevant, and step back into my own power. This is hugely valuable to me as a person and to my work as a consultant and coach.”
– Layo, Consultant and Coach: Cape Town

– Debbie, Integrated Health Practitioner: Cape Town

– Rene, Psychologist: Durban
“I am finding it mysteriously profound and life-changing, and the gentleness with which you hold and navigate the process feels so respectful, loving and kind – all of which touches me deeply”
– Training Participant: Cape Town
“I absolutely loved the course and found a huge amount of personal and professional value in it. I was amazed at how much I learnt through the experiential work, constellations and discussions. The project also helped to consolidate skills as well as gain more knowledge and understanding. I never knew what a journey I started when going to my first constellations workshop. However I have found more value in it than in most other courses and therapies I have done. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for your gentle guiding approach and for all I have learnt as a person and a professional.”
