Event description

Description

If you made it to this invitation then perhaps you've stumbled upon the realization that you are not the only person who has had to reconcile how previous belief structures may be intertwined with your present barriers to inner peace, mental health, and ability to connect with others.

Religious Trauma, as defined by Dr. Marlene Winell, Ph.D. and founder of Journey Free, is the condition experienced by people who are struggling with leaving an authoritarian, dogmatic religion and coping with the damage of indoctrination. They may be going through the shattering of a personally meaningful faith and/or breaking away from a controlling community and lifestyle.

Join us for a weekend full of possibility prepared by Lizzie Ladd, Kayla Felten, and Zach Lien, three friends who have found a common bond in understanding each others religious trauma. We would like to expand on our own healing journeys by extending the invitation for others to come alongside us and create a safe space for conversations, processing, rest, and freedom to come as you are.

Unlike the religious gatherings of your past, at this retreat nothing is mandatory, everything is optional, and the dress code is whatever makes you feel like your best self! Meals provided and intentional conversations facilitated by event hosts and special guest speakers to unpack topics inlcuding sexual repression, mind-body connections in trauma, decontructing the patriarchy, and healing rituals/coping skills shared within the community we create.

Retreat : Water will be taking place on a community farm surrounded by 300+ acres in conservation. Three options for dorm style lodging will be available: femme energy // masculine divine // co-ed space. We will have access to the farm's trails, 40 ft. waterfall, natural spring and surrounding prairie, oak savannah, and forest labyrinth. We regret that this retreat space is not wheelchair accessible, but we intend to facilitate more accessible space in the future!
