2022 BERKSHIRE RETREAT-September 15-18, 2022


Disruptions in the flow of love, either through trauma, loss, or exclusions, create disturbances that, if carried across generations, often lead to illness, emotional distress, addictions, and broken relationships. Because the longing for repair and balance runs deep, children, out of love for mother or father, will try to carry their parent's pain and grief in an attempt to restore balance. The unconscious movement is to stay focused on the parents or grandparents and not find fulfillment in one's life. 

"I will carry this (pain, grief, etc.) out of love for you" are the unspoken words of the contract that keeps us entangled with our family system. Thus, we suffer. 

What are you carrying for your family, mother, father, grandparents, and further back? 

Have you taken on burdens out of love and loyalty that keep you from living an authentic life? 

Is it time for a new conversation, time to break a promise or a vow you made unwittingly? 

We'll take an in-depth look into what we carry for our families through rituals, exercises, and Family Constellations. We will find gentle ways to surrender what is not ours and step onto our path with love and grace.

"Heartfelt thanks for making space for a beautiful memory. I feel complete and filled up from the life-affirming weekend retreat in Hillsdale. 


Although terrified, I arrived at the prospect of almost three days and three nights with strangers. I felt quickly at my ease in the energy of that beautiful house and its surroundings, the openness, warmth, and humor of my fellow retreaters, and, of course, Bill's strong and gentle presence and his expertise with creating a safe atmosphere. 

The movie title for the weekend would be "Cry Eat Laugh": Everyone who wanted to be the subject of a Constellation was able to flow in with time, space and reverence. We were all touched deeply by the Field and the magical dynamics of Constellating, whether as subject, representative, or witness. Then we ate, family-style, around a beautiful big table: Delicious food, nature's abundance, washed down with laughter. We entertained ourselves in the evening and learned more about each other with a series of fun parlor games. People flowed in and out of these too. The loving, respectful, and welcoming space w held throughout the weekend. 

When I tuned in for my morning practice today, I noticed a distinct relaxation in my lower belly. I could access a place that my "less-than," my "votes of no confidence for me"- my neuroses..previously occupied, and find it open and spacious for the first time I can remember. I feel I have come home. I am indeed grateful. "KC
