Determined to Rise

I am excited to announce that I will be speaking at an amazing women’s retreat in 2 weeks.  Determined to Rise hosts retreats for women who have suffered abuse, most commonly betrayal trauma.  It is a jam packed weekend of presentations on healing, recreational therapy, art therapy, yoga, and relaxation.  You can connect with women who have been there, and with resources to heal.  And best of all Determined to Rise does it very inexpensively!  For less than the price of a hotel room, you get everything you need to rejuvenate and move forward: meals, room and board, take homes, and all the activities mentioned above.  I’m honored to join this amazing team as the guest therapist presenter.  I hope to see you all there.  To get more information and register see their website here.  This year’s retreat is themed: Putting My Pieces Together, and I believe will feature a kintsugi art therapy activity.

Summer can be crazy, if you have to miss a week, you can make it up or I can make a recording temporarily available (based on the consent of other participants).

If you want a course but can’t take it during the offered time, let me know, I’d love to try and accommodate you now or in the future.  I do occasionally add additional courses.

I teach a Sunday School class of 12 and 13 year olds.  Like 15 of them. And it’s awesome. It’s a fun challenge to try and keep them all engaged.  There are a few key concepts that I harp on constantly. If they learn nothing else from my class, I want it to be this:

As I was thinking today about betrayal trauma, and other things that pull us away from serenity, I thought of the analogy Dieter F. Uctdorf once gave of an airplane going into turbulence.
