To paraphrase Anthony de Mello,

"If you could let go of your conflicts, your anxieties, your tensions, your pressures, your emptiness, your loneliness, your despair, your depression,

your heartache, the entanglements--if you could let go of all that, stop haunting the past, and wishing you had different parents, what would you have? Sheer, undiluted, astonishing joy." 

"To allow ourselves to be joyful is to have walked through the doorway of fear and claim our place in the living conversation." 

David Whyte

Constellations allow us to release family and generational entanglements, guilt, and shame and invite us to step into something new. They invite us to stop, surrender and see what matters, the soul's deepest longing. 

Throughout the weekend, via Constellations, rituals, and small group exercises, we will explore what keeps us from moving forward, standing still on the edge of joy.

"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
