Intensive Healing Retreat

Description:

Give Yourself The Gift of Self Care
Compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, burnout, we all experience those times in our lives where our own paths and our own stories begin to rear their head in our daily lives.  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? 
Let us help you regain that connection with yourself and explore the events or relationships impacting your life today. 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. 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 and be given the chance to begin self-exploration, renewal and growth.
