Something about Marina Toledo


Thank you to my mom and dad, siblings and ancestors for giving me the greatest gifts of all. I carry your love and strength in my heart and thanks to it, I am able to dedicate myself to what I love most.

My dad was an entrepreneur and my mom was a teacher. They are both present in my work as a Constellations Facilitator & Trainer and Founder of the Hellinger Institute in Canada. In addition to Canada, I facilitate workshops and trainings in Spain, Argentina, Brazil and have been invited to bring my work to Mexico and Poland.

Prior to Family Constellations, I worked representing two countries in other lands: Spain in Canada, and Canada in Japan. I graduated from York University in Toronto, Canada in Mass Communications and Political Science, studied Business Administration and Adult Education.

My personal development journey began when I became a Reiki Master, in 2000. Shortly after, I walked the Camino, an 800 km path across northern Spain. I enjoyed the journey so much that I did it 2 more times. From 2003 - 2005, I went to Japan in order to deepen my knowledge of Reiki, while working for the Japanese government.

The next steps were training in NLP, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness Meditation and Erickson Coaching, based on the transformative work of Milton Erickson. I travelled to Germany, India, Japan, the USA, Italy, Spain and Mexico, to study with the sources of different methodologies and have learnt from First Nations from Canada and Peru. In addition, I have completed UPW, Date with Destiny Mastery University and Business Mastery.

In 2002, I had my first constellation and at that time never imagined that I would one day be a facilitator.

After some years of participating in constellations as a client in Europe and feeling significant shifts in my life, I decided I wanted to bring this work to Canada, where it was not well known.

I began my training in 2009 and since then have been trained and certified by Bert Hellinger and Sophie Hellinger from Hellinger Sciencia® in Germany. In addition, I studied with 9 other trainers worldwide to gain an international perspective of this work and am very grateful to all of them.

I founded the Hellinger Institute, Canada in 2011 based on a vision to open hearts and facilitate reconciliation and transgenerational healing worldwide. In addition, I felt a calling to train others in this powerful methodology in order to expand the positive impact of this work. Since then, I offer both workshops and trainings internationally in person as well as Online.

What People Are Saying...

  • Susan S.
    I would like to thank you very much for the level I training / personal development of Hellinger Family Constellations.  It was out of my expectation.  I have learned a lot about relationships, family puzzle (as I call it!) and you!  Isn’t it wonderful to experience our thoughts (or better say the impact of people on us in our personal life) without being interacting physically with them?  What you are practicing and teaching in your Hellinger institute is saving lives of persons that they are seeking a better solution rather than hurting their love ones or themselves.  You are helping people to heel their pain and learn the method for life!  I am stunned how effective the workshop can be!

  • Stephen D.
    I have been at a few constellations lead by you over the last year and a half and have been truly surprised each time. During and after each workshop major shifts take place in my life and the life of my family. Never knowing what will happen, each time I grow and I find myself becoming the person I want to be more and more. The work helps me focus on what's important as that is brought to the surface. It keeps me focused on what is. The connection I find with people there is up-lifting. It feels more like a spring board in my spiritual journey.

    It was a great experience to do a constellation with you and it definitely has made a change in my life.

  • Gala Rabinovich
    I'd like to thank you for last Thursday evening's family constellations workshop. That was exactly what I needed, even though I did not have my own constellation done. The big progress for me was on one of somebody else's situations, when I was just sitting and watching the constellation. Since Friday morning I feel very peaceful and calm inside. Again a very warm thank you for that.

  • Martha Lopez
    It was a real pleasure to meet you on the Workshop. It was quite an experience, it really helped me to understand the reason that my mother and my father were the way they were. It was so clear not only when I did my family constellation, but when I saw the pain of other people that were on similar situations like my parents. I felt that any judgment that I still had for my parents was lifted as well as judgment for myself and some other people. I feel lighter now. Thanks ever so much for helping me and helping so many people through this amazing method and with your energy, light and love that definitely are great and make us feel so good.

    I have had this incredible sense of peace since the last session. Connecting so deeply with the collective field has been a peak experience. Such peace. Such subtle strength. I also LOVED the meditation!

  • Darren Steiner
    I just wanted to let you know how deeply moved and touched I was by the last Family Constellation Workshop. I have never experienced anything quite like it. You have an amazing gift that is going to help so many people, you are truly an inspiration to me and i'm sure so many others. It was an honour and a pleasure to have been a part of this and I wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart!

  • Rachel Swift
    I want to thank you Marina for introducing me to the power of family constellation work. I had experienced several wondrous energy shifts after having two constellations done myself. I felt lighter and more open to life and love. The biggest surprise came after my third individual session. Both my parents have passed away and have been gone several years now. A few weeks after doing my third constellation I opened a letter from a dear old friend with a decade old picture of my two parents smiling at me arm in arm. The friend had been going through old pictures and felt moved to copy that one and send it to me out of the blue! It warmed my heart and truly felt like a hug from beyond.
