Registration for Fall 2019 Groups
Now Open! See Our Offerings Below!
Restoration Groups are founded on the belief that we are best known, seen and understood -- and our stories are best read -- in the presence of others. We believe that what was once broken in relationship is healed in relationship.
Have you ever wondered, "why am I like this?" or "why does this keep happening to me?" or "why am I always stuck?" Our groups invite you to a community of people who explore their stories together, and in the process find new insights, deeper relationships and personal healing.
They are a safe environment where you will be guided by Northern Colorado's and Austin’s experts in story-work.
For Women and Men
NEW! Join us on the journey to recollect and heal the places where we have come to distrust that our identities are full of wisdom, beauty, power, creativity, and joy. This support group is for women who have been so busy in the various roles we play that we have lost our own voice or our sense of “self” along the way. This group will lead from past to present and work to transform your future in the way you see and hear yourself and others around you.
New Online Men’s Group!
This is a virtual, nationwide group that will meet online in a secure teleconference setting for any man who is curious and courageous enough to take the next step in their life. Led by story experts, Restoration Counseling’s Terry Bohn and Restoration Project’s Jesse French, this is for men who feel stirred to go deeper into their own story.
New Young Marrieds Workshop
Join us for the ReConnect Marriage Workshop specially designed for marriages younger than 5 years. Consider this an “extended date” with your spouse as you join us for a few hours on Friday evening and Saturday morning to explore and experience reconnection together. This is not a “tips and techniques” kind of experience. No, we will explore how your relationship (both the good and the hard) invites you deeper into one another’s stories, how to partner with God in each other’s healing, and how to set the stage for a lifetime of loyalty and love.
Here are a few of our regular Restoration Group Offerings
wounded heart & healing the wounded heart
Wounded Heart and Healing the Wounded Heart Groups offer an honest and hope-filled journey into the debris and devastation of childhood sexual abuse. Our goal is provide a safe, kind and honoring space for women to know they are not alone in their struggles and that it is indeed possible to re-story our lives even from the most desolate of places. Professionally led by Dr. Dan Allender-trained guides (author of the books by these titles), you will experience hope and kindness that will be like rain on dry ground.
restory 1.0 and restory 2.0
ReStory 1.0 the first step in our unique group process, where participants find a safe, kind and hope-filled space to explore the dynamics of their lives and name the challenges they have faced.
ReStory 2.0 is designed for those who have previously participated in a ReStory group at Restoration Counseling, and long to take the next step in the healing of their stories.
STAY TUNED FOR OUR NEXT OFFERING
Tribe of Men
Something in the hearts of men knows we need other men, and yet far too often we find ourselves journeying through this life in quiet desperation and alone. When it comes to true masculine community, we have lost our way.
Men together often default into competition, measuring each other up, comparison and shame. The questions, "Do I have what it takes?" and "Do I fit in?" plague the hearts of men and disqualify them from participation in friendship and community. Loneliness has more impact on men's health and happiness than anything else on earth.
circle of women
Our world is filled with messages about who women are and who we ought to be. With all of these external filters, it becomes increasingly hard to listen to our inner voice. As women created in the image of God, our individual silence or hiding impacts the greater collective.
Through reading, prompts, conversation, prayer and meditation we will journey together. Our intention is to be open to listen - to ourselves, one another, and God.
