Searching for healing, but not sure if The Way retreat is right for you?
The Way is a healing retreat for adults who are survivors of abuse; a 3-day guided meditation and prayer experience for adults whose abuse by another has deeply affected their heart, mind, body and soul.
• Have you experienced or are you experiencing dread, confusion, deep hurt, betrayal or anger when you think of the abuse you have suffered? Or maybe you are feeling nothing at all.
• You have every right to these feelings...they are natural reactions to the trauma you have survived.
• You may be asking yourself, “What do I do with all of this? How will confronting my abuse experience affect my life? How will I ever recover my trust in people, God, my Church again?
Does it really matter? Do I matter?”
Your Retreat Team consists of professional counselors, a priest, and volunteers who are well formed and grounded in the Truth of the Catholic faith. All Truth is God’s Truth, so no matter if you are not Catholic, the steps you take during this retreat will help you to move forward in Truth on your journey to peace.
The Way is the path to take to find answers to these and many other questions for which your heart, mind, body, and soul have been searching. This is where your healing journey begins. These three days of guided meditations and prayer crafted around the Stations of the Cross will show you the steps Christ took to overcome dread, confusion, deep hurt, betrayal, and anger not only for His experience of abuse—which culminated in His death on the cross and new life in the Resurrection—but for your abuse as well. You can choose to walk The Way with Him, learn His ways, transform your pain and suffering into a new life, the life God has always wanted for you but that the sins of another has disfigured in countless ways.
You do matter...to God, to your Church, to your loved ones, to the world. Let Christ show you The Way to peace in heart, mind, body, and soul. Take your first voluntary steps on The Way to new life.
