Healing Waters is an earth centered approach to reaching forgiveness of self. As children, we believed the lies we thought were true. Healing Waters is a time to stop the lies that we are not good enough, unacceptable, stupid, bad, different, ugly, or unworthy of love. Healing Waters is a time to begin a new “circle of belief.”
Healing Waters is perfect in today’s world as we have all been hurt, we have hurt others, and we carry emotional baggage from these hurtful episodes. The remedy we recommend is forgiveness but that is not always easy. Our first attempts don’t always work and, most often, we simply need to delve deeper into the core of our resentments.
Healing Waters takes place in a rustic, nature based environment where participants are presented with the opportunity to release, reduce and relinquish the level of rage, anger and resentment that has been carried within for such a long time.
Surrounded by nature in this powerful milieu, the exploration, insight, and understanding of our past hurts affords us the chance to embrace how we have created out lives based on the lies we were told as children.
We first experience self-forgiveness and then forgiveness of others follows. Many times we think we have forgiven and we can move on but, often times, there is a deeper level of understanding needed to attain a more durable, lasting peace.
The Healing Waters workshop is a gift to your inner spirit and a gift to your inner child. If you thirst for a deeper understanding of your life, Healing Waters would be a loving gift to yourself.
Healing Waters is two day earth-centered workshop focusing on forgiveness which takes place on five acre in West Delray Beach. Attendance is limited to ten students with no assistants and is taught by a female and male instructor. Healing Waters starts on Saturday at 8:30am and ends 6:30pm and concludes Sunday from 8:30am to 6:00pm.
During my Healing Waters course 2 years ago, I was sent on a walk from the back porch to the mailbox at Hagen Ranch to think about the question I had just been asked – “Do you want to live or do you want to die” – I wanted to run away, hide, disappear. That’s how I used to live my life – invisible. I think the only thing that brought me back to the porch was the fact that my therapist was the other instructor so running didn’t seem like a good option and would not be without a major redirect.
Kathryn Kvols, I will always be grateful to you. The walk taught me how “move a muscle, change a thought” can help me to process information when I feel stuck and/or overwhelmed. That question saved and changed my life that day and continues to do so still.
At that point, I was the heaviest I had ever been in my life. I didn’t care. I was miserable and depressed. Before that walk, I knew I didn’t want to die, but I wasn’t really sure that I wanted to live. The dead tree that I chose for the exercise later that day said everything. I came back from the walk saying I wanted to live but I chose a dead tree and didn’t realize it until it was pointed out to me. I was “dying” and everyone could see it but me.
I made a commitment that weekend to get help for my struggle with binge eating and I followed through on that commitment to myself, the instructors, and my classmates.
I have lost 40 pounds since 4/2017. I have gained self love. I have gained the willingness and courage to be seen, to speak up, and to be vulnerable. I am proud of me. I am proud of my little girl. I am grateful. And most of all, I am (and want to be) alive.” ❤ – Sara S.
