In the end this book would enthral even the uninitiated like me with its unique approach towards optimal health thanks to it having been brought to street level despite the scientific wealth of research that has evidently gone into it.
Professor Mayer and her co-authors take salutogenesis, an approach to health coined by medical sociologist Aaron Antonovsky in the late seventies to a whole new level. It advocates the quest for a “sense of coherence” to achieve “health-ease” over “dis-ease’’. At the outset upon beginning my read what immediately came to mind was author John Bradshaw’s catchphrase “What you don’t know can hurt you” in his book ‘Family Secrets’ that I had read some 20 years earlier.
Like Bradshaw, Claude-Hélène Mayer and her colleague Stephan Hausner and other contributors delve into the same possibility that somewhere along the line a family may have had something happen to the family dynamics – present or past – but unlike Bradshaw they do not take his “genogram” or family mapping approach to get to the bottom of what is still affecting certain family members in later years. Instead, as per the title of this book they advocate the importance of ‘Salutogene Aufstellungen’ or ‘Salutogenic Constellation Work’ to gain greater insight as to why certain adult family members are supposedly being protected from this disturbed family dynamics. It invariably turns out that being “protected” from what went down is in fact hurting them and can be a key subliminal trigger to illness.
Systematic “constellation work”, by way of interactive sessions allows the suffering individual to arrive at the core of what is going on in his or her life. In these sessions others may take on the role of the demons of the past and even the present to portray the situations that are evidently causing mental and emotional blockages that are manifesting themselves physically. The sessions have time and again proven invaluable where implemented and in one of the approaches that Professor Mayer favours, the relevance of intuition as a resource to “health-ease” is given strong impetus.
Where she is concerned, the rational and the cognitive approach that once went hand-in-hand and was placed on a pedestal by some academics, realistically needs to make way for intuition, the unconscious, a gut feel, as it were, and there is no reason why these elements should not be incorporated into systematic thinking. Intuition and rationalism are no longer on opposite ends of the spectrum instead they ought to operate as two parallel knowledge systems that contribute to an individual’s manageability of a decision-making situation. But it is not only the manageability of the individual’s well-being that is at stake, also at stake is the role of intuition in systematic resonance occurring on a macro-level. This is necessary to achieve healthy, ethically acceptable, sustainable and peaceful environmentally-friendly decisions in the context of a future world as a whole.
Anyone taking the time to read this book is bound to gain a profound insight into the dysfunctional patterns that may be keeping them back from living life to the full and more importantly will appreciate the value of engaging in the process of ‘Salutogenic Constellation Work’ themselves to arrive at optimal health.
