Healing for the Healer

Our community is filled with compassionate people who commit to caring for others,
while putting their own needs on the back-burner.

The Healing Trust has offered retreats since 2008 as a way to say thank you to helping professionals in our community by providing a free day of rest, relaxation, and self-care centered on the belief that the healing and wholeness of service professionals matters as much as the clients they serve.  To honor the health and safety of participants and staff, we have chosen to host virtual retreats in response to COVID-19. We know the need for rest and connection hasn’t gone away with the demands of a global pandemic, so we’ve moved these retreats online in a modified format.

On each retreat day, the morning gathering will be held via Zoom from 9:30-11:30 a.m. and the afternoon gathering will be from 1:30-3:30 p.m.  Please note that some sessions are reserved for specific members of our community. If you have any questions about the retreats, please contact Casey McCormick.
