I was a late sign up for the Journey to Freedom retreat because initially I didn’t think I could afford it. I went back and forth because not only was it a time investment but I wasn’t sure I would fit in. As the only person attending who was not a client of Peggy’s I thought I would be an outsider. Peggy graciously took the time to speak with me over the phone to insure the experience would be a fit for us both, to answer all my questions and even offered to speak to my therapist to make sure she had no reservations about my going. I can honestly say that the retreat was not only one of the highlights of my year, but a major step along my healing journey. I had zero previous group therapy so the idea of sharing my truth with strangers terrified me.
Throughout the week I bonded with these incredible women and was able to be open and honest without judgment. Being able to share like that is one of the most healing things you will ever experience. I know I will be connected to these women for the rest of my life. I don’t promise it will be easy. Lots of the exercises were incredibly challenging, emotional and transformative. But we also had plenty of fun, laughs, relaxation and conversation. No matter where you are along your healing journey I believe this experience is worth every penny. Peggy is amazing and I’m so grateful to her for creating this incredible opportunity for all of us. ~ Monika
Calling all beautiful souls who have experienced the betrayal of sexual abuse.
Are you ready to experience an incredible transformational healing journey?
A journey of allowing connection, support, and deep healing. Of freeing the parts of yourself you’ve kept hidden.
I would love for you to join me and up to 4 of your fellow warrior sisters for 6 days in Arizona where we will heal, connect, and play together.
All you have to do is allow me to guide you and be willing to show up and connect with our courageous tribe.
Our journey will begin with a casual welcome dinner while we get to know one another. Our days will be a mix of group activities, self-care, relaxation, connection, and maybe even a surprise or two.
Think of it as deep healing group work meets girls get away with some fabulous new friends.
Our time together will be at a private home in the beautiful Sonoran Desert of Arizona with incredible views, a private pool, and hot tub.
~You're a smart woman, yet continue to get stuck in a cycle of less than fulfilling (maybe even abusive) relationships; stay hidden when your soul desperately desires connection; are willing to do almost anything to avoid feeling; and continue to find ways of blaming yourself for what happened even when you know it wasn't your fault.
~You're ready to experience support & connection instead of carrying the burden on your own in isolation.
~There is a part of you that knows there is more waiting for you in your life, even if you're not sure what it is or how to achieve it.
~You’re ready to truly see yourself as the powerful, beautiful, courageous woman you are.
~You want to experience the strength of me and your fellow warriors holding you as you move through the process of metamorphosis to become the person you were meant to be.
~You are a woman who was sexually abused as a child and are over the age of 18. Not sure if it's for you or have other questions? Email me firstname.lastname@example.org *Use "Retreat Question" in Subject Line.
*This may not be the right journey for you (at this time) if your current level of coping is not able to keep you grounded or are struggling with intense emotional reactions. I'm happy to connect with you to determine this together.
