Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat Weekend

This weekend is an opportunity to examine your abortion experience, identify the ways that the loss may have impacted you in the past and present, and helps to acknowledge any unresolved feelings that many individuals struggle with after abortion. Because of the emotional numbness and secrecy that often surrounds an abortion experience, conflicting emotions both during and after the event may remain unresolved. These buried feelings can surface later and may be symptoms of post abortion trauma. The retreat weekend is an opportunity for healing surrounded by those with similar experiences, in a non-judgmental, completely supportive environment. Please contact us for more information at counsellors@centreforlife.ca or 579-1500 or 579-3618 .
