Stories of Hope
“The Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat weekend is a powerful step in the right direction of the journey towards wholeness that we all are traveling. Having attended my first retreat weekend in Beautiful Seton House in Kelowna I know now that that was the beginning of a journey into freedom that I never thought I could have. I had no idea the depth of the impact the abortion that we were involved in had on my inner soul. The Rachel’s Vineyard retreat was a gentle introduction into looking at the issues that surrounded the abortion that were plaguing me even though I did not fully realize they were.”
Give Yourself the Gift of Prioritizing Your Wholeness
1. Reach Out to our Retreat Coordinator
With assurance of confidentiality, our local coordinator is happy to answer your questions. We’ll do our best to arrange a time to meet in person so you can see a familiar face at the retreat.
2. Attend the Retreat
The entire weekend is created to give you the opportunity to focus on yourself. We’ll take care of everything from delicious meals and snacks to quiet, comfortable accommodation. We’ll work through an expertly created process of reflective exercises. You’ll use leading-edge modalities and scriptural promises to move your body, soul and mind toward healing and hope.
3. Live a Bigger Story
You are more than the experiences of the past. This weekend is just the beginning of life beyond your pain. With new connections and access to ongoing support, you’ll feel loved, cared for and free to thrive.
Things only get better when healing becomes a priority.
We know you want to live an engaged, healthy life. But when you suffer from post abortion trauma, the effects of the past can creep into today's relationships, daily function and the way you see yourself.
Coping techniques fall short, so where do you turn when you've had enough of the turmoil an abortion has caused in your life?
Rachel's Vineyard Retreat provides an opportunity to invest a weekend in yourself and find freedom from the heaviness. Be guided through a proven process which blends sensory-based exercises with the hope found in biblical scripture.
The program runs in over 50 countries, and our caring, trained local volunteers make this life-changing program available twice a year in Kelowna.
We believe everyone deserves support and healing when suffering from the trauma of an abortion experience.
We'd love for you to join us.
