Testimonials

Men's Weekend
I was able to accept myself for the first time in my life in my own skin, down to my core. I know now that I was created to be artistic and sensitive, passionate and beautifully unique! My heart feels warm as if light is shining in places that have never seen the light before, almost like the first day of a new life! A wall came down.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

The Mother's Healing Weekend was an awesome experience. We are all struggling... In the shared struggle, my burden is lighter... I am breathing easier. This journey is bearable. I am moving forward with love and confidence. I no longer feel the panic. It is gone. The "I-need-this-to-be-over-now" feeling is gone. I am peaceful, restful, stilled. I am filled.

 

 

 

 

Father's Weekend

It was worth every second and dollar I spent! The weekend was hard work, interspersed with a life-changing understanding of myself and my family. What I knew in my head wasn’t what I did from my heart. This weekend showed me the difference. What I wanted to do I didn’t know how to do until this weekend showed me and gave me the confidence to try. The facilities were excellent, but the care and comradery were beyond that. The session leaders were excellent and quickly established a team orientation rather than focusing on individuals, yet every individual’s situation was explored for the benefit of the individual and the group. It was a weekend surrounded by professionals who were willing to listen with empathy and eager to help. I continue to correspond with the men I met and share successes and challenges.
