What Men Said Last Year: 

"Wow. Many experiences during the healing retreat were unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before: powerful, embodied, therapeutic, and redemptive." —Andy

"God gave me the opportunity to receive healing and enjoy a beautiful brotherhood." —Waner

"I feel seen, loved, affirmed, and through the psychodrama, I feel emboldened and less fearful of women." —Justin

"I only knew one man but now I have dozens of new brothers who are on this journey with me." —Gill

"I can wholeheartedly say that I've made friends from the retreat that will probably last a lifetime. I believe that the love I experienced and continue to experience has put me in good stead for the rest of my healing journey." —Justin

"I arrived at the retreat feeling shy and fearful of in-person vulnerability. I left feeling a sense of gratitude for my HM friends and new direction in my life." —Austin

"It provided the desperately needed space to feel unconditionally loved & supported exactly where I was, which dislodges big emotions within me & brings me to tears even while I type this!" —Jeremiah

"I received what my soul desperately needed--masculine love and acceptance!" —Joseph

"Prior to the retreat I had lost a lot of my hope for living in victory and through my identity in Christ. After this experience, I only have hope! The retreat offered me the opportunity to do a reset along with so many new brothers who are now walking alongside me." —Darrin

"I almost didn’t go to the retreat because I felt too busy and pressured in a business deal. But my heart was hurting so I decided to fly across the country to find more healing. It was powerfully restorative to be surrounded by beautiful men whose commitment to curiosity, compassion, and confidentiality allowed them to give and receive love."—Keith

"I feel so much more free, more hope-filled, and joyful. It’s only been a week, but I really do feel like there has been a shift! Thank you Jesus!" —Chris

"I'm so glad I came because I felt refreshed, renewed in my purpose, (and emotionally taxed haha) after the retreat. I connected with a spectrum of men and I didn't allow our different experiences to prevent us from connecting." —Nathaniel

"I shared deep and vulnerable conversations with other men. I received affirmation where I needed it." —Keith

"I was not disappointed. That place, the people, the Lord - wow, what a combination! I came away changed, once again." —Russ

"Before the retreat I was plagued with an overwhelming sense of sadness that I could ignore for a while, but never escape. During the retreat I was able to access my suppressed, righteous anger, experience it and direct it for good." —Scott

"The retreat was life changing. I learned so much about my own heart from both highs and lows." —Tamim

"Extraordinary. It was a great time of connection and stories." —Rocky

"I had given up hope for my recovery story. Now, shame is lifted and I am more motivated than I can ever remember being to pursue healing." —Jon

"I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was one of the most spiritual and healing experiences I’ve ever experienced." —Wesley

"The workshops, food, and men were amazing. It really made me feel comfortable looking around and hearing people’s stories and realizing that I wasn’t alone" —Tyler

"I was feeling stuck before the retreat. Afterwards, I felt unstuck because of the amazing workshops and friends I met." —Nicholas

"I was very anxious and nervous about going. But I’m so glad I went. I made a lot of friends and learned so much." —Peter

"Coming off of a horrible relapse, it was unclear if my wife and I were going to part ways. I was carrying deep shame and self contempt to the retreat. All the shame and hopelessness was left behind. As I write these words, pondering on my retreat experience, tears are welling up again. Thank you Jesus!" —Ray
