FAQs about Healing for the Healer

Who can attend Healing for the Healer retreats?

Healing for the Healer retreats are for people who work in nonprofits in Middle Tennessee. Although we appreciate other helpers in our community, these retreats are not offered to therapists with private practice, teachers, police officers, EMTs, etc.

We prioritize the attendance of our grantees, but attendance is not limited to members of grantee organizations.

How often can I attend a Healing for the Healer retreat?

Attendance is limited to one retreat per calendar year.

I am a Black person or a Person of Color. Which retreat do I attend?

We have designated some retreats specifically for Black people and some specifically for People of Color to create space for shared experience as it relates to race and ethnicity.

Our general Healing for the Healer retreats can be attended by people of any race or ethnicity who work at a nonprofit in Middle Tennessee.

We trust our attendees to self-identify which retreat they would like to attend.

What COVID-19 procedures are you following?

We are following CDC guidance and request that attendees wear a mask while not eating or drinking, regardless of vaccination status. Please note that this is subject to change based on CDC guidance and local COVID-19 rates.

We are limiting attendance to 10 participants per retreat to limit exposure. We request that you remain physically distanced while eating, wash your hands when entering the building, and take advantage of hand sanitizer located in the retreat center.

Registration

How much does it cost to attend?

Retreats are free to attendees, although it does cost The Trust about $175 per participant.

We happily offer these retreats, and kindly request you let us know if you need to cancel your registration so we can invite someone from our waitlist to attend.

Can I register my entire staff for a retreat?
