Time To Heal Retreat

“Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything.

Maybe it's about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.”

  • “Taking the first steps towards healing was the scariest thing for me since enduring my abuse. If survivors aren’t given the opportunity to heal as a gift, chances are they will never take it, I'm living proof of that.”

EDUCATION

While attending the Time To Heal Retreat you will have the opportunity to attend classes designed to assist you on your mission to change old patterns and behaviors that were created when you experienced the trauma of being sexually abused as a child.   

 

Some of the classes include Assertive Communication, Restorative Sleep, Overcoming Shame, Healthy Body Image, and Overcoming Addiction and were all designed to help you learn and integrate new healthy habits in your daily lives long after you leave the retreat.   

HOLISTIC HEALING

At the Time To Heal Retreat you will be immersed in proven ancient holistic healing practice including somatic release techniques such as Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, Muay Thai, Tai Chi, EFT (emotional freedom technique), and Reiki which are key to helping release the energy that was stored in your body when you survived the sexual abuse as a child.   

In addition to the somatic release, you will learn the ancient practices of Mindfulness and Awareness so you can connect with your body and ground yourself to the here and now; which are very important techniques to practice when you are being triggered or experiencing emotional stress.

EQUINE-ASSISTED THERAPY

While attending the Time To Heal Retreat you will be given the very unique opportunity to participate in equine-assisted therapy.  This form of therapy requires no previous knowledge or experience working with horses, all that is asked of you is to be open to the possibility that these majestic animals have a unique ability to look deep into your soul.

 

As survivors, repressed emotions are one of the most difficult challenges to overcome.  With this scientifically proven therapy, your horse will act as a mirror and help you identify your psychological state so you can work through repressed emotions stored deep in the limbic system of your brain.  

DIGITAL SURVIVOR SUPPORT GROUP

Upon arriving home from the retreat you will be given the opportunity to join your group of fellow participants for an online extended 12-week program that is there to help you integrate everything you learned at the retreat into your daily lives.

 

You will be joined by your group leader and the other participants from the retreat, to support, champion, and encourage each other along the way.  The bonds that you build with the other survivors will be life long, and their love, compassion, and kindness will be a powerful asset on your path to healing.
