Facilitated by grief expert and author Joan Furman, MSN, AHN-BC, CETII, A Loss Too Great is a healing experience for bereaved persons and those who have experienced life changing loss of any kind who are finding their grief overwhelming. The grieving process is always hard. Our world is shaken by loss of a loved one, or by the loss of anyone significant in our lives. Grief feels very abnormal but is in fact a normal healthy process. However, sometimes it also gets stuck – “complicated” by competing forces known and unknown, inside us or out – and can’t seem to work itself through. When this happens, additional attention can be profoundly helpful.  This workshop is designed to address normal healthy grief as well as grief complicated by things like: Suicide of the deceased loved one, difficult or painful relationship while living, strong remaining feelings of guilt, young developmental age at the time of loss, painful secrets about the relationship, and many other issues that make it difficult to learn how to live life when everything has changed.

This weekend retreat is an opportunity for individuals that work in the helping profession to get time for self-care. This weekend was formerly called the Professionals Retreat and is intended to help helpers to discharge and recharge so they are better able to serve others.  In this small group setting helping professionals are able to get the support, attention, and care they need in order to be productive and effective in the work they are called to do.

The retreat is led by our Founders of EHC as they continue to model that we must walk our own path of self-care and healing if we are to give our optimal selves to others we help.

We will utilize SomExsm (a somatic/experiential approach) in working with individuals to recover their spark and aliveness that is often diminished in the effort to work with the traumatized and addictive populations. Often healers have turned to ineffective coping skills to manage their burnout and compassion fatigue.  This retreat is an opportunity to inventory those coping skills and explore new ways to process feelings and challenges that life gives us.

As with all programs at EHC, participants will take part in body and energy work. This is intended to nurture and support the therapeutic work done and to assist in the embodiment of a renewed vitality.

Emotional Harmony


Equine Therapy is a powerful metaphoric approach to healing relationships with self and others. Horses are emotional creatures that live very attuned to their community and environment. Equine therapy utilizes the horse’s innate ability to mirror back to clients hidden aspects of themselves—giving them an opportunity to become more congruent and authentic.

This four-day retreat offers participants a unique opportunity to discover and awaken their true inner self and develop healthier ways of expressing this self in relationship. This program is especially helpful for those struggling in relationships and needing to address trauma, set boundaries, reduce shame, or practice emotional regulation—issues that impair one’s ability to experience intimacy.

Equine therapy does not require any prior experience with horses, nor is it necessary that you be comfortable with horses. The therapy is mostly done on the ground and does not have to include riding.

Resiliency Weekends are 3 ½ day programs that explore and celebrate the human resiliency that helped us cope during the difficult and sometimes traumatic events and situations surrounding our families of origin. Reconstructions are powerful, transformative experiences allowing us to see how profoundly we’re affected by our family system and how we, as adults, recreate and regenerate the dysfunction. Clients often learn much about themselves and their family systems as they witness, identify with and relate to the Star’s experiences and challenges.  Experienced, attentive staff and a supportive community help clients access and express repressed emotions, face realities in their lives that may have seemed overwhelming, and make decisions and plans that will better serve them in the future.

It is designed for people new to the process or those wanting to go deeper into their healing. This weekend includes a "Reconstruction" -a day- long psychodrama in which a pre-selected "Star" shares his or her life story.

Enveloped in a community of recovering people, and with a diverse team of therapeutic professionals—clients are able to delve deeper into their issues and achieve significant amounts of healing and growth. Because of the intensive nature of these weekends, clients must be engaged in a therapeutic process and/or be screened to make sure they are appropriate for this level of work. Participants are encouraged to utilize the weekend experience to identify “emotional medicators” and often choose to abstain during the program. This can provide the groundwork for a recovery process that they can implement upon their return.

Young Peoples Weekend


From the moment we are born, our lives are shaped by relationships. When talking about relationships we often think about people--like our parents, siblings, friends, spouses or co-workers. However, we also have relationships with nature, food, sex, a Higher Power, and money. We may pay little attention to our relationship with money, even though we may feel the unconscious impact of it.

Experiential Healing Center's Healing Your Relationship with Money workshop is designed to help you explore your relationship with money and make better choices in your life. During this four-day intensive you will have the opportunity to:

     - Explore your feelings around money

     - Learn the messages that have shaped your relationship with  money.

     - Learn about family dynamics around money

     - Learn about multigenerational patterns about money

     - Identify your beliefs

     - Identify your self destructive patterns about money

     - Find a path to start making healthy choices about money.
