Bert Hellinger

The founder of the method was born in 1925 in Germany. He studies philosophy, theology, and pedagogy, and as a member of a catholic mission, lived for 16 years with a Zulu tribe in South Africa. He started working in the field of psychoanalysis and through different ways of group dynamic, primal therapy, transactional analysis, and hypnotherapy developed his own way of systemic and family therapy- order of love. The method became recognized and respected in the world, with applications in many forms of therapy: psychotherapy, social and business consulting, psychosomatic medicine, pedagogic workshops, and many other spheres of life.

Upon its translation, Hellinger’s book Acknowledging What is was introduced at the City of Belgrade Library’s promotion, with Bert Hellinger as a special guest. He held a three-day event at the local university, dubbed the Peace Congress by its participants. With his presence, Hellinger clearly and undoubtfully confirmed his strong support to Vlado Ilic as the carrier of his mission. Following the success of this event, Vlado and his team organized another Peace Congress the following year which is attended again by Hellinger and several prominent lecturers in the realm of reconciliation and healing: monk Dr. Fra. David Steindl Rast, Marko Pogacnik, and many others. In this way, the mission and Vlado’s work gained in importance and solidified its existence in the region and beyond. That same year, Hellinger held one last event in Opatija, Slovenija, which concluded his presence in the region as he leaves it in secure hands of Vlado Ilic.
