2018 Ladies Retreats
Do you want to improve your relationships and your internal happiness but don’t know how? These weekend retreats are designed to help women regain their balance in life. The August retreat is crafted for those who have experienced sexual abuse or domestic violence but is open to anyone.
These retreats address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. To make it possible for more ladies to attend, we have divided the week long retreat into three 3-day workshops.
Check-in is 9:00 on Fridays. Classes begin at 10:00. All workshops/retreats are held at our beautiful retreat property in Cherry Log,Georgia.
3 Day: AUGUST 24-26th: Symptoms of Abuse, Self Esteem & Trust
3 Day: SEPTEMBER 7-9th: Anger, Shame, Forgiveness & Guilt
In these workshops/retreats you will receive tools for change. Through classroom instruction, sharing time, and interactive and experiential activities, you will learn how to change your thought patterns, manage emotions and change behaviors. Total cost for each retreat is $475 per person. This includes food, lodging, classes and materials. There are two Board Certified Christian Counselors facilitating the classes.
