Honestly, I think the innate hunger to be known was my first appetite and in moving towards others. In that hunger, I then learned that I come from a story that is particular and unique, and it took hearing others stories to recognize my lens is not the same as those around me.
Leaving your daily life and responsibilities affords the space and luxury of staying in what begins to surface inside of you as you linger in the scenes and story longer. There are no children, no job, no outside responsibilities that require you to “pull yourself together” allowing you feel your feelings without having to manage them.
Often, counseling settles for external change in behavior. And while this is good and helpful, it does not enter the categories of the heart into which Jesus ultimately seeks to bring freedom. We don't settle. We hold out hope for true life-change that comes from heart-change. Our aim is to help you investigate the stories of your life, to see where you have been marred and wounded, and then to take up the pen to re-story your future in new, transformative and adventurous ways.
