This retreat is based on the processes outlined in Rob Voyle's book Restoring Hope
Are you suffering from:
If you want to be free of such suffering then you need to learn the Art of Resolving Trauma, Grief, and Resentment
Forgetting bad things is a real problem,
because then we will have to repeat them
to remember that they are painful.
When we resolve grief we don't want to forget our loved one. We want people to remember their loved ones with love and gratitude rather than not-forget them by being miserable.
We cannot change one iota of our past.
We can only change how we remember our past.
Time doesn't heal anything it is what we do during the time that will result in healing or ongoing misery.
Take a moment and think of two distressing things from your past where:
We would say the second memory or experience is "resolved". Often this resolution occurs at an unconscious level without our conscious awareness of having done anything. However we can discover what you did to solve the distress of that memory and then use the same strategy to "re-solve" the distressing memory.
The damaging emotions associated to memories we have
of bad things that have occurred in our lives.
This retreat is provided in one-day and weekend formats.
Retreat content is flexible to meet the needs of participants.
In addition to the One-Day processes the longer retreat includes:
This program is deliberately designed as a personal retreat in contrast to most of our training programs which provide professional continuing education for clergy coaches and therapists. Because it is a personal healing retreat, no continuing education credit is provided.
For Restoring Hope continuing education programs for coaches, clergy, and therapists please see: Restoring Hope Training.
The retreat will typically be conducted in a retreat setting with:
Day-long programs are typically at a sponsoring church or organization. No additional accommodation is provided.
Multi-day retreats are typically held at retreat centers and overnight accommodation is provided as well as meals between sessions. Commuter options are also typically available.
Because the locations differ accommodation costs will be specified of the specific retreat registration form.
