Bett Hellinger was born on December 16, 1925 . He is also called Anton Hellinger and he was a German psychotherapist. His work as a psychotherapist was associated with a therapeutic method known as Family Constellations and Systemic Constellations.
His works have evolved over some years beyond the initial formats into what can be now called Movements of the Spirit-Mind.
He was born into a Catholic family in Germany and based on his parents’ belief in the Catholic faith, the family believed in National Socialism. When Bert Hellinger was about ten years old, he attended a Catholic Convent School. The school was under the control and supervision of the Order of the Jesuits.
Bert Hellinger was later in life ordained and sent to South Africa to work as a Missionary. Even though the local Hitler Youth Organization wanted to have Bert Hellinger in its fold, that could not materialize.
