Introduction to Ladies Inner Healing Retreat

Emotions are an important part of daily life, significantly affecting your well-being. You can eat the healthiest foods, exercise, and meditate, but when something weighs heavy on the heart, you’ll feel like something isn’t quite right. True health is experienced when your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony, working together toward creating a life that you desire. When any type of emotional disturbance is experienced, it can be pervasive, affecting all aspects of yourself.

You may have carried your emotional burdens so long it’s hard to remember what it was like to not have them. When in emotional distress, it’s not uncommon to feel like you are the only one having the experience and you must tread the path alone. This is not true. One type of support available to you is attending an emotional healing retreat, with the focus on group work.

An emotional healing retreat can give you the space to process and release emotions that hold you back. Sometimes you need to completely remove yourself from a situation in order to gain clarity.

Our Emotional healing retreats offer guidance and a chance for self-discovery. The potential for new insights and perspectives is invaluable and helps you to understand where the emotional blocks are within yourself.

What should I do after the retreat?

Depending on your insights gained during the emotional healing retreat, you might want to pursue further individual therapy (with a therapist of your choice) or further group sessions.

Am I ready for this retreat?

You feel like change is needed. You may not know what that change is yet—it can start as a feeling in the pit of your stomach or as a flutter in your chest. The feeling starts to dominate your thoughts as you ponder the possibilities of change and what that might look like. It can seem cloudy or confusing as your mind and heart sift through thoughts and emotions in order to make sense of what it is you want.

Change comes easily for some, for others, not so much. Change can be scary, especially when it requires some major shifts and difficult discussions. However, if the need for change is ignored, it will start to manifest itself as both physical and emotional discomfort. The benefit of attending an emotional healing retreat program is the potential for gaining clarity and finding the strength to proceed, especially when change is afoot.

The common factor is that the body and mind’s ability to maintain balance has been hijacked. When this happens, you may feel an internal imbalance or a disharmony. Opportunities such as an emotional healing retreat recognize all aspects of who you are and can start to gently guide you back into a state of emotional well-being and peace.

The most important (and the most difficult) thing you can do is to start by asking for help. Building a support system is crucial. If you are lacking support, you will have to seek it out. An emotional healing retreat can offer the support you need to heal and tools to begin shedding the darkness.

During an emotional healing retreat, a new relationship with yourself is cultivated so that during periods when you need it most, you can connect within and find exactly what you need to live life the way you deserve.

Consider attending an emotional healing retreat if it feels right. It may be just what you need as a next step in your journey toward living a life full of joy and peace.

Verlorenkloof is a beautifully picturesque escape hidden in the escarpment. Isolated at the end of a valley, it has been a refuge for humanity escaping from violence and chaos for thousands of years. Today, nothing has changed, and the vastness of the mountains together with the almost tangible serenity make this setting ideal for the process of rejuvenation & Inner-Healing.
