Using Family Constellation Therapy to heal the past, so you can enjoy your present and future…Are you struggling with the same old issues every year? Do you find yourself dealing with the familiar patterns over and over and over again? Oftentimes, patterns and issues we deal with are beyond us. They feel like a force, like poltergeist,with undeniable pull towards a specific behavior. We usually try to manage it based on the context of our own life, but what if it is not even our own?Frequently, we are ‘acting’ out on patterns and unresolved issues and traumas in our family system (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, etc) that are affecting you today…and you probably don’t even know it.The good news is, we can facilitate healing in these areas, whether around relationships (single or attached), health, body-centered issues (body image, sex, intimacy, etc.), finances and career, addiction, life path, etc.If you have tried traditional therapy, mantra work, voodoo, meditation and more and still can’t seem to get over the same old junk that is holding you back, then I highly recommend this form of therapy.Come join us and other women who are ready to heal these patterns once and for all! It won’t all be painful! Delight in delicious, healthy food made with love, reminisce about the slumber party days long gone, and get out of the concrete jungle without the hassle and expense of buying plane tickets!
This is a truly unique and transformative opportunity for 12 women. In this 5-day, 4-night retreat, you will be pampered, dined and turned inside out and upside down. This is NOT your ordinary retreat. While there will be relaxing aspects (massage, beautiful property, yoga), you will also be healing (not always pretty). This is a boot camp for the mind, body and soul and is reserved for 12 women who are truly ready to let go of what’s holding them back!

If you have a car, great! It is a fast and easy commute from NYC and will run you about 4-5 hours. Perhaps you can commute with a fellow retreat participant and split the gas! No wheels, no problem. There are buses that leave from Port Authority and drop off right near the house! Whatever you decide, let me know and I’ll help you take care of it
A retreat provides an opportunity to retire the apron, dish washing hands, or perhaps take-out menus, for us New Yorkers. All meals will be made healthfully and with love. If you have dietary needs that require special arrangements, please contact me ASAP so I can see if that is an option. I will make every effort to accommodate reasonable requests. All meals, from time of arrival, until time
of departure, will be provided. Meals will include bot vegetarian and meat options. Here is a tentative sample menu, and the real menu will be sent out as time gets closer:
“The food was fantastic! Perfect food for the type of work happening and openness with us being able to get tea and comfort food anytime we wanted, with their being mostly healthy snacks and I felt good about what I was eating not crap!” Emily, 2014 Retreat
am honored to have Ms. Michelle Kabler as our chef. I am so excited to have her, as she is so passionate about providing healthy, happy meals.
Her Impressive Bio: Michelle Kabler is a lover of life, people, and vegetables. Up until her mid-twenties, her experience with food was a love/hate relationship. After years of bingeing and dieting, along with an unfulfilling, stressful career in Advertising, Michelle began developing side effects of her toxic lifestyle. She called in extensive research, health coaches, meditation – and most importantly, the right foods for her body. Through overcoming her health issues, Michellewas able to heal her body, mind, and soul through food. Livened by this new relationship, Michelle completed her chef’s training at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City to continue her journey and help her spread her passion for food and healing. She lives in NYC with her soul sisters.
This workshop will provide 12+ hours of Family Constellation Therapy. This therapy is like 10 +years on the couch trying to make sense of your life, all in a short, power-packed session. This work goes beyond your “story” and gets straight to the heart of the matter. Don’t take my word for it, click here for some recent testimonials. We will be covering all of the important stuff for women (relationships (single, dating, hitched), Health issues, Financial and Career concerns, and bodily issues (periods, body image, sex/intimacy, food, etc). Every person will get their constellation done!
Four hours of movement yoga classes–This Mind, Body, Soul Retreat/boot camp/slumber party/love-fest, wouldn’t be complete without movement classes! With such intense detox happening through the work, it is vital that you move through it and integrate. This is why we are going to do a little bit of meditation first thing in the morning to wake up, set intentions, and center
and ground ourselves for the day’s love beating. We will then be doing some yoga during the day to break up and to integrate your new healing.
I am so excited to have Michelle Timek as our Yoga instructor. Michelle teaches integrated yoga styles including Vinyasa (regular and hot), Restorative, Therapeutic, Thai Massage, Power, Pre/Postnatal and Geriatric around the Jersey City-NYC-Hoboken metropolitan area. She has a special talent for guiding beginners, although people of all ages and stages in their practice can benefit and expand their practice. In any given class Michelle’s magnetic personality will have you hooked with her easy, breezy, lighthearted and charismatic approach. She will help guide you from the inside out so YOU can freely discover and explore into your own body with ease of movement and ease of mind using her “slow-strong-steady” approach. Students boast of physical strength and flexibility gained, a greater sense of overall balance and awareness inside and out and overall feel fantastic while having fun!

We did say retreat, right? We have to put something spa-like in here so you don’t leave without some physical TLC! Each participant will receive one ½ hour body massage designed to release tense and sore muscles and help facilitate detoxification. You will be relaxed and serene…until we begin the next workshop We will also be doing a little bit of group Reiki everyday in order to restore your life-force energy.
I am thrilled to have Jesika Homeijer Wachter as our massage therapist. Jesika is a NY state licensed and nationally certified Massage Therapist. Along with being a Reiki Master and Certified Infant Massage Instructor she is also working to become a Certified Lactation Consultant.

Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold. This is Camp for grown-ups. Instead of making arts and crafts, we will be making huge strides in our lives and supporting others in the process. Mingle, network, support, cry, indulge. This work bonds like none other and I am sure you will make long-lasting connections! Every retreat, the women bond on such a deep level and they STILL keep in touch years later!

I am so happy, Natalie’s Retreat has such a profound effect on me. Thank you for a weekend I will never forget. I will hold you, all the fantastic woman, & memories in my heart for a lifetime. You have such a gift, & I sincerely thank you for changing my life. xoAmanda, 2012 Retreat Participant
I feel like myself for the first time! And I belong now, I have always belonged, exactly where I’m at, and exactly how I am. I don’t understand what went on during our constellations, but it has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. It’s like a light inside me, that fills me up completely, and connects me to everything and everyone with nothing less then the deepest love I have ever felt or will ever understand. I’ve felt it before, briefly, and I’ve laid down my life for anything that brought it into my life… But I’ve always sensed it as something greater then myself and outside of me. I’d never experienced that as coming from within me, not like that, and meditating on it just letting it be what it was for the first few weeks; I can tap into it any time I want it now. I can basically plug back in and just be.
R.S., 2013 Retreat Participant
I thought it was so very valuable – it was an eye opening experience I never thought I could feel or imagine – so much that i got my brother into it! You really get to the root of it!
F.P. 2013 Retreat Participant
Natalie is an amazing healer and her retreat was unlike anything I’ve ever been to. Our group radiated supportive energy for each other, which helped deepen the healing experience. Afterwards, I experienced positive shifts within myself and my relationships with others. This retreat is for anyone looking to release and shift old patterns that are not serving their growth. It’s extremely powerful work that will change your life for the better!
