Our Alumni's Experience



“After attending the retreat, I've come to the realization that my wounds do not define who I am today. I've learned that I am worthy of love, happiness, and acceptance. Being able to connect with all the other amazing people on the weekend gave me the sense that I am not alone!  It was very comforting not to feel judged, but to be loved and accepted just for me.”

- Daniel R., Yuma, AZ


I have a pattern of isolation. I am afraid of being a burden to other people. Prior to attending the retreat, I felt I was the only one struggling with my emotions and the entire world rested on my shoulders. I was using methods I thought were coping, but in actuality, I was numbing.  During the retreat, I learned how to recognize them and reach out instead of isolating them. I realized that I am not a burden. I am loved.”

- Madison H., Mesa, AZ

My biggest challenge has been chronic pain. I have even battled with thoughts of self-harm. Before attending The Finding Peace Retreat, I felt hopeless. The exercises and non-judgmental environment allowed me to feel safe. I can better recognize the wounds in other people and understand that their behavior comes from their own pain and not as a reflection of my worth.   I learned the importance of connecting on a daily basis with others and that I am lovable and enough.

- Jenny K., Yuma, AZ


I am a survivor of emotional abuse and reacting to others in ways that caused me severe emotional distress.  After the retreat, I felt stronger and more empowered. I was able to separate what is my part to own versus other people's parts to own. I was able to see more clearly the wounds of others and how we can find friendship through common support. ”

- RoseAnn F., Yuma, AZ

After I attended the retreat, I was able to finally challenge that feeling and find my own inner strength and worth. I learned that I am so much more than all the shadowy voices in my head.  Better yet, I found a great connection with the participants and trainers to help me stay accountable for my growth.

- Eric P., Mesa, AZ

“I learned new vocabulary to help me have clarity about the struggles and challenges I had faced throughout my life. I learned I can be fully honest with others and still be loved and accepted. Leaving the retreat made me realize that I need to practice more self-care and self-patience. I am grateful for the love and kindness I felt. The retreat was amazing!”

- Philip S., Smyrna, GA

“Before coming to the retreat, I would withdraw and continue in my anger and blaming for days. Now, I have a better understanding of what my automatic responses are and why.  I learned that I am enough.  The Shadows of Shame are not me. They do not accurately represent who I am and who I want to be!”

- Jon H., Layton, UT

“I feel empowered to create a life I can love and feel at peace with.   I remembered how awesome I am and how much I have to offer others. ”

- Marissa M-H., Mesa, AZ

“I was terrible, lonely, sad, and depressed.  Now, I feel equipped with tools and understanding to help me change this pattern every day. The level of detail during the retreat  - every meticulous detail - was amazing.”

- Jordan S., Gilbert, AZ

“I learned that my self-deception and self-betrayal is deep.  It has been trying to protect me from hurt and pain but has actually been creating pain from a different place and direction. As I embrace my authentic self and step out of the shadows of shame, I will feel more comfortable in my own skin.  I will still feel pain, but I know that I do not have to hide it.  I can fact it and reach out to get support.  It was also so amazing to be honored and seen for who I am and know that I am accepted here no matter what I bring to the table. ”

- Marisa H., Layton, UT

Frequently asked questions

Why was the Finding Peace Retreat created?

Although the Finding Peace workbook has been a life-saver for many readers, many have asked for a program that goes deeper into Finding Peace. During the retreat, you will explore your core emotions and face the shadows of shame that hijack your happiness. The Finding Peace Retreat is based on over 20 years of best-practice research including self-compassion, neuro-science, and shame. You will leave the retreat connecting with empowering new beliefs and a plan to help you maintain your progress after the retreat is over. One of the most powerful ways of healing attachment wounds is through connection. A valuable element of the retreat is the ability to connect with other people who can relate with your attachment wounds. These individuals will inspire you and you will inspire them. And perhaps, you will make connections that can last a lifetime.

What is the schedule during the retreat?

The retreat starts at 5:30 pm on the first day. The retreat is not like a traditional conference. The training is experiential, meaning that you will be engaged in learning activites from the moment you arrive. We are wanting you to have as much time to understand the process as possible. We begin most mornings at 7 am and some nights will go as late as 9 pm. We end at noon on the last day. We are about 2 hours from the Phoenix Airport, so if you are traveling from out of state, please plan accordingly.

Is there a discount?

Yes! We offer 10% off the price if you register with another participant. There is also an early-bird discount if you register by January 15, 2022

Will meals and sleeping accommodations be provided?

Yes. Meals and snacks will be provided starting on the second day of the retreat. (Please plan to eat dinner before arriving on Wednesday). Our last meal will be breakfast on the final morning of the retreat. Sleeping accomodations are in bunk-style cabins.

Is taking video or pictures allowed during the retreat?

No. We want to help maintain confidentiality during the retreat. There will be time after the event for individuals to take pictures with those who consent to have their picture taken. No part of the retreat will be recorded. In addiction, The Finding Peace Retreat is protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws, therefore recording the event in any fashion without written permission is prohibted. In addition, the training materials you receive are also protected by copyright and other laws. Please do not share the materials with others whether in person or online.

How are the facilities?

We are staying at a non-denominational camp located in beautiful Prescott Arizona with modern facilities in a beautiful mountain setting. You'll experience great food, comfy accommodations, tons of nature to explore. There are separate cabins for men and women. The cabins contain showers and flushing toilets. There are refrigerators available to store any special food you might have.

What will I learn from attending the retreat?

The weekend involves large-group sessions, small break-out groups, and individual work. We strive to create a safe environment where you can boldly challenge the negative messages tattoed on your hearts and feeling emotions you may have been suppressing. Participants are invited to allow themselves to be seen, cared for, and supported as they step into the arena of heart work and healing. The retreat uses experiential learning rather than a lecture. This helps you fully participate in the learning rather than having information passively shared. Experiential processes include:

  • Journaling
  • Visualizations or “guided imagery”
  • Meditation
  • Interactive learning exercises
  • Affirmations
  • Inner-child affirmation and healing work
  • Emotional processing
  • Psychodrama or role-playing, and dramatic self-presentation to gain insight into your life
During the retreat, we explore attachment wounds (Loss, Rejection, Abandonment, Neglect, Betrayal, or Abuse) and how we developed negative core beliefs that impact our ability to feel joy, happiness, and peace. We explore how shame hijacks our lives. We identify how not feeling enough, powerless, or alone impacts our ability to reach the goals and desires we have in our lives.

What if I want to attend, but I just don't have the funds right now.

We understand things can be tight. One thing to consider is how much not having peace in your life is costing you - emotionally, physically, spiritually, financially, and in your most important relationships? Many people have used their creativity to find the funds such as crowdfunding, asking family and friends, fund raising, or opening a line of credit. We do offer a small number of scholarships.
