Lewes Wellness to host Family Constellations workshop March 24

February 11, 2018

A Family Constellations workshop is set for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, March 24, at Lewes Wellness Center. Family Constellations can expose the hidden dynamics within families that often are behind the problems and misfortunes people experience in their lives. The early death of a parent or sibling, the exclusion of a family member, violence done by or to a family member and other events can lead to unconscious entanglements that disturb people’s lives and relationships and the lives of others in their families, often with severe consequences. This experiential workshop can help bring these hidden loyalties to light so they can be resolved, and love can begin to flow in a more balanced and healthy family system.

Susan Ulfelder will facilitate the workshop, in which each client is asked to present a particular issue or problem they want to address. Other workshop participants, who do not know the client, are selected to represent some of their family members. The representatives then begin to experience the thoughts and feelings of the actual family members. The facilitator works with the representatives to bring the hidden dynamics to light and to help restore balance, respect, dignity and love among all members of the client's family. Everyone attending the workshop is able to observe and feel the effect of the entanglements and the freedom that results from their resolution.

Ulfelder completed the first training of the Bert Hellinger Institute, USA, taught by Harald Hohnen and Hunter Beaumont. She co-trained with Harald Hohnen the next year in the Washington, D.C. area and has been training ever since. Ulfelder has attended numerous international intensive trainings with Bert and Sophie Hellinger through Hellinger Sciencia in Austria, Germany, and Mexico, and she received a Hellinger Sciencia Diploma in 2008. She has attended advanced trainings with Bert Hellinger in Louisville, Ky.; Jakob and Sieglinde Schneider in Munich, Germany; and Heinz Stark in the Washington, D.C. area. She has completed Jane Peterson's Organizational Constellation Online Training and Trainers Training in Oregon.

Workshop cost is $150. Lewes Wellness Center is at 20268 Plantation Road, Lewes. For more information, contact Catherine Pando at Lewes Wellness Center, 302-313-9990 or go to To register, go to
