Restoring Innocence in Troubling Times

Healing Retreat 17-19 March 2023
With Dr Rebecca M Ridge PhD Health Psych.TEP
Vincentia, New South Wales

For the past 24 years I have offered a retreat that allows us to reflect and deepen our relationships with self and others; To heal wounds from past and present and to feel the support of caring, conscious, and compassionate community. This year’s intentional retreat is to Restore our innocence remembering that place within which holds one’s true self and the sweet spot of our innermost being. The past 3 years have shaken us to our cores and presented challenges within family, community, country, and our evolving planet. Innocence is not naivete, nor fantasy, but rather a deep soul remembrance of that purity of heart, trust in others and a belief that we have a purpose in being alive. With courage and daring, we can hold the calm within ourselves when the storms rage and chaos surrounds us. Learning to live in the present moment by staying alert and aware, we can be creative and positive with each breath and movement. Reminding ourselves that innocence and clarity live within each heartbeat.
