We’ve already talked about how it’s normal to have some fears about attending an abortion recovery weekend retreat and what those fears might be. Now, it’s time to talk about the unique advantages of attending an abortion recovery weekend retreat! Like we have said before, weekend retreats are one of the most valuable tools to seek healing from a past abortion. Here’s why:

  • Uninterrupted Healing

As an abortion recovery weekend retreat participant, you will arrive on a Friday afternoon and will have the opportunity to fully disconnect for 48 uninterrupted hours. During this time, you will be fully immersed in your healing journey. You will get to experience the Lord’s presence, uninterrupted. When strong emotions begin to arise, you will be able to fully embrace and process everything you are experiencing. Healing, freedom, and peace flow from this uninterrupted time.

  • Restoration and Reconciliation

You may come into a weekend retreat feeling unworthy and undeserving of love. During your time, from arrival on Friday to departure on Sunday, you will feel the presence and love of Christ. Through many tangible activities and representations, you will know that you are deserving and worthy of His love. You can trust that you will experience restoration and reconciliation in a way that you have not before.

  • Location, Location, Location

The location that is chosen for our abortion recovery weekend retreats is very intentional. The retreat location is set with you in mind – to feel calm and comfortable. At this location, there are no outside inhibitors preventing you from fully embracing all that the Lord has set apart specifically for you. Many times, post-abortive women have not truly realized that they have the ability to grieve the loss of their child(ren). This realization can be a very emotional and pivotal time in the journey toward healing. When the grieving process does begin, it is so important for the post-abortive woman to feel safe and loved. It is with this in mind that we choose our retreat location. It is our desire that you are able to grieve openly without condemnation or judgement. You deserve the opportunity to process your past abortion in a place of peace.

The benefits of an abortion recovery retreat are abundant. If you decide to attend a retreat, we know that you will be glad you took this step to change your life.

If you’re not ready, though, it’s okay! Whether you choose to do 1:1 sessions, group sessions, or a weekend retreat, the important thing is that you are choosing to heal! Healing is not one size fits all, it is what size fits you best.

Reach out, today. There is hope and healing for you.
