Anxiety, fear, depression, financial woes, and unhappy relationships can all be forms of an unconscious inheritance from our family of origin. Our Open Family Constellation workshops offer opportunities to explore personal or work-related issues in the safety of a healing circle.  Held in the Boston area and Vermont.

“It often seems as if there were an impersonal karma within a family, which passes on from parents to children. It has always seemed to me that I had to … complete, or perhaps continue, things which previous ages left unfinished.”
—Carl Jung

February 23-24, 2019

Susan Ulfelder, ND, LMT, RPP, RDH, the Director of the Hellinger Institute of DC, and a former teacher at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, broadened her scope from the individual energy field to the family energy field when first exposed to Family Constellations.

She has been assisting clients in releasing emotional patterns with essential oils for over 20 years.  When clearing emotional patterns down their ancestral lines, she observed that the intensity of clients' feelings was often the result of carrying emotions for one or more  family members. Combining this process with Family Constellations allows clients to engage in a trans-generational clearing that brings full relief. Click for flyer.

**We will be working with flower essences and essential oils. Scent-sensitive individuals may not wish to attend.


April 5 – 7, 2019

This is a time to gather in community, bring what is close to your heart, and lay it into the circle. We will hold it with love and respect and work with it in order to offer you a new perspective, a medicine that heals, or a deeper understanding.

The retreat is in a beautiful location and is designed for members of the Constellation Learning Group as well as participants who are newer to Constellation work. Our tools are meditation, Breathwork, Family Constellations and possibly other modalities.

It feels good to be together and expand our hearts, chat, laugh and gather around the fire. Building community in such a beautiful natural setting creates a strong container to hold us as we dive deep into the burdens that we are ready to shed. Check-in starts at 4:30 Friday afternoon. We open our circle at 6 pm.
