This is an opportunity to heal your life.

Experience the power of forgiveness.  No matter what has happened, forgiveness can free you from long-standing suffering. 

This is a heart-centered process. We will guide you on an emotional and spiritual journey, with lots of support. Attention is given to mind-body integration, to ensure lasting results.

This is a time for self-care and profound healing. Leave with new tools and resources, and more love, wholeness, and inner peace than you may have imagined was possible.


 Whatever you are dealing with, you will discover how forgiveness can provide a pathway to  peace.

Felt so held in a safe, compassionate space with love, structured program very impactful.  Andrea B.

This is an amazing course! I am walking away with some profound answers that I didn’t even know I needed! Purely eye opening.  Sheila S.

If you are feeling stuck, like your life is a hamster wheel of betrayals, you need to forgive to get off it. This course will open your eyes to a new truth and skills to move forward. Maggie H. 

This was an insightful and nourishing look into my forgiveness story. Creating gifts that I did not know about and helping me to understand the origin of my core wounds. Terry P. 

Best 3 day investment to have a lighter, more loving way to yourself and others.  Andy M.

I knew the theory of this work, but after the retreat, I have been able to put it into practice.  I’m free of the old story.  Now I really have a new story.  Afsoun E.

Freeing, enlightening.  Sarah R.

We all have “something” we need to let go of.  What are you waiting for?
