Retreats & self-care
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 matter as much as the clients they serve.
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. Retreats are facilitated by Abby Hyman and Ashiya Swan.

What to Expect
Healing for the Healer is a day of relaxation guided by the belief that rest and self-care is a necessary practice for meaningful work.
The in-person retreats will be from 9:00-3:00 p.m. and a light breakfast and lunch will be provided. We invite you to come dressed in whatever you find most comfortable (loungewear recommended).
You can expect a calm day with time to get to know yourself and others who do similar work. Activities may include Circle, arts and crafts, journaling, aromatherapy, meditations, yoga, acupressure, free time, and more. Every activity during the retreat is invitational and you do not have to particpate.

Change of plans? Please let Abby know if you can no longer attend the retreat so we can invite someone from the waitlist to attend.
