“In silence all our usual patterns assault us. That’s why most of us give up rather quickly. When Jesus was led into the wilderness the first things to show up were the wild beasts.”
Greetings from The SoulCare Project, a ministry dedicated to providing the rare opportunity to set aside the well managed life in order to come away and hear God’s voice through stillness.
Many of us have suffered through experiences of ravaging abuse, profound loss, or deep emotional betrayal. Whether these wounds stem from recent treachery in a trusted friendship or remote tragedies of physical and sexual abuse during childhood, the impact of trauma is enduring. It affects every facet of our being. As a result, we may suffer from the disruptive symptoms of post-traumatic stress or the quiet yet enduring dysfunctions of interpersonal distrust, “functional” depression, crippling self-doubt, demoralizing addictive behaviors, or a pervasive feeling of numbness and relational disconnection.
If this describes your journey, we invite you to attend a trauma and recovery intensive specifically designed to facilitate healing and spiritual renewal in the beautiful mountain town of Breckenridge, Colorado. Come grow in your identity as God’s beloved as you purposefully engage life’s traumas and losses. Discover through honest conversation and spiritual solitude that you are never alone.
OBJECTIVES OF THE RETREAT
- Participants will achieve deeper insight regarding the intimate connections between human trauma with the path of contemplative Christian Spirituality as a way of love.
- Participants will experience a fuller understanding about how their own past losses and trauma impact the quality and contours of their own spirituality and experience of God.
- Participants will pursue deeper spiritual communion with themselves, others, and God in !light of past loss and trauma rather than despite these past experiences.
If interested, please contact us confidentially at email@example.com or call (423) 322-7484. Each attendee must submit an application prior to confirmation. Please also note that additional intensives will be scheduled in the near future.
