What does a Healing Warrior Hearts retreat look like?
Retreats are small to provide quality, individualized attention – maximum of 10 participants and a staff of two leaders, and at least one staff person as a mentor for each participant plus several logistics staff
We gather on Friday evening at 7pm to get to know each other and set intentions for the retreat. Saturday morning we start at 9 am, spending the day hearing the stories of participants and honoring their willingness to do the emotional healing work. On Sunday, we start at 9 am and focus on closure for the story and setting intentions for positive future, with a graduation ceremony at 5pm.
Local participants return home each evening (ending times vary based on the number of participants in the retreat). Participants who travel into the retreat city will stay at a near-by hotel. Lodging expenses are covered by the sponsoring organization.
