Intensive Healing Retreat


Unraveling painful stories of your past and facing the darkest parts can be daunting. Many of us spend most of our time focused on our job, family, social life, and putting others needs ahead of our own. When have you made time to reconnect with yourself? If you have experienced trauma or neglect, it can be difficult to open up when you know you’re on a time limit. For others, the triggers of daily life seem to wash away the insights gained in a therapeutic session and you are left feeling stuck and frustrated. For many people, an hour therapy session once a week is not enough.

Let us help you regain that connection with yourself and explore the events or relationships impacting your life today. We invite you to our Intensive Healing Retreat. The goal of our healing retreat is to create a safe space where life can be put on hold and you can finally give yourself the time to heal. Just a few miles from The Refuge, our retreat facility offers an oasis of privacy, luxury and beauty. Using experiential modalities such as breath work, mindfulness and meditation, psychodrama, somatic experiencing, art therapy, equine and adventure therapy, you will have the opportunity to dive into your story in a group setting no larger than 10 participants. Your therapists will provide you a unique opportunity to both cleanse and relax your soul.

Over the course of this four and a half day retreat you will be given the chance to begin self-exploration, renewal and growth. You will be given the chance to let go of the stories you tell yourself about who you are and what you are capable of... You can finally begin writing your own story.
