Be assured your facilitator will create a safe space to process what you are learning in the main sessions.

You will experience support and connection with others in your group. Many alum say this the best part of the weekend!

“This has been a remarkable weekend. I feel a great burden lifted off my life with a new attitude with which to face the world. Finding Freedom has been a total heart, mind and soul reset!”


“I am looking forward to moving into a new chapter in my life. I’ve realized that for years I’ve been trapped by fears of failure and shame originating from my childhood. This workshop has helped me realize that by accepting God’s love, I can overcome the fear and shame that has been holding me back.”


“Having time away from daily demands to focus and deal with my emotional brokenness in a safe, supportive environment was very helpful. Helpful to be in a small group and see how others wounds and brokenness can give unique insights and perspectives to my own journey was valuable.”


“God delivers. We just need to show up. This is an atmosphere of pure authenticity and genuineness.”
