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. We are excited to announce that retreats will now be in-person, beginning in August, and will continue to be facilitated by Abby Hyman and Ashiya Swan.

The in-person retreats will be from 9:00-3:00 p.m. and a light breakfast and boxed lunch will be provided.  The retreats are for nonprofit staff and are limited to a maximum of 3 people from an organization in each retreat.  Please note that some sessions are reserved for specific members of our community. If you have any questions about the retreats, please contact Abby Hyman.

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 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.
