Partnering with Shadow Retreat

Hear what past participants say about the Inner Peace Therapy & Yoga Retreats/Workshops:

“I cannot speak highly enough of the quality and value of these retreats.  Deb integrates a mind-body-spirit approach which is lacking in many supervision experiences.  She offers insight and leadership through her own integration of yoga and meditation in treating mental health issues.  In the retreats I learned excellent and practical therapeutic interventions for clients, as well as being given the opportunity to explore “self-as- therapist.”  I left at the end of the day renewed and revitalized  and with increased energy to do healing work with the families and couples I see, as well as a few  hours closer to licensure!  If you are looking for a unique and invigorating supervision experience, I recommend these retreats to you!”  -C.F.

“Deb makes learning fun & relaxing.” -J.W.

“I learned & practiced what I learned.  It was wonderful.  I have more hope & energy for my clients.” –J.C.B.

“This was a beautiful opportunity to turn in and really delve deep into my pure essence & bring forth all that I am in Truth.”  J.E.

“I now feel more confident to practice psychotherapy from a deep place of Truth & knowingness.” –D.R.

“This retreat helped me rediscover myself with what really matters in the work I do.  It’s hard to put words on the experience & peace I found.” –K.H.

“This was a truly amazing opportunity for deep self-exploration & reflection in a safe, gentle, supportive environment.  Thank you for letting me be me.” -W.B.

“This retreat helped me feel wholeness I did not know I was holding within.  I learned so much about myself and feel so empowered to be an even more helpful guide to clients in their journeys.  This retreat will be with me for a long time and has shifted my perspective in such a renewing way.” S.A.
